Scrap & Craft to Lose!
6/11/2009 | 4:36 PM
Any suggestions on how to fix the broken handle? I'd be more than happy to be able to continue using it even if I can't fix the handle, but how? Should I just scrap it and buy another when they go on sale? Help!

I had the same exact handle break. I tried to fix it with duct tape and that worked for awhile. Then the tape fell off. I finally took it back to Michael's and they exchanged it for me. No charge!

I had a 12 inch paper trimmer that had the numbers wear off...I took a photo of it and sent it to the Fiskars warranity e-mail address (Check their web site) and they sent me a brand new one. They are really good about standing behind their products.

Need to be careful when using this punch. It only can handle 4 sheets at a time. If the paper or card stock is heavy, use on two at a time. Gorilla glue is what I used. Best of luck

Use gorilla glue that is the best!

I remember when working in a Scrapbook store that these punches didn't work very well on heavy cardstock. The more cutting a punch does, the harder it is. You should be able to find something that will sit on the orange part , that you can push on. Try punching through foil several times to try and sharpen the punch and these work better on thinner paper. I really like those new border punches by EK success. They punch really well through cardstock.

I agree, call the manufacturer.
How many sheets of cardstock were you trying to punch? I have found that most punches (with the exception of the Crop-A-Dile and die cutting machines like the Big Shot) really only can handle 1 sheet of paper.

Let us know if the super glue works (I dropped my trimmer this weekend and broke one of the arms off of that as well and I was going to try super glue)

I was just trying to weed things out of my e-mail mountain when I saw your post. I'd try super glue too,----but, what is it???

onecalmmom took the words right out of my mouth! I've found as I get older that it often pays to complain or at least let manufacturers know when i product doesn't live up to expectations. They can't fix it if they don't know it's broken and they will often do things to keep you happy as a customer. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

If superglue doesn't work, call Fiskars. I found this info on their website for you.
The handle should be made strong enough because that is where you have to apply the most pressure. I'd ask about that too. You may want to ask them if they came out with the new designs because "handle breakage" has been a problem. Let us know what you find out. --Sharon

Thanks for suggesting the super glue, but I was pressing pretty hard on it and I'm not sure if the glue would hold. I'm wondering if I could rig something up to press on the orange part only. I'm going to ask my dh when he gets back from the store about the super glue.

Can you superglue it back together??
