View Full Version : How to unstick a punch

02-19-2006, 12:23 PM
I'm using my frog punch that has smaller feet. The paper is stuck and the punch won't go back to its original up position. Any suggestions? I've had this happen before, but a bunch of fiddling solved it. Thanks

I usually turn it over & press on the part that's stuck with something small - like the tip of a pen or a philips-head screwdriver...not along the cutting edge though, just in the middle. After you get it unstuck, you might want to try cutting some wax paper a few times to loosen it up. If you think it isn't sharp enough, they say cutting tin foil will do the trick.

I bang mine on my desk a couple of times and it usually unsticks itself...I agree with the wax paper treatment once it's unstuck.
