We need to know how to put the blades back on a paper cutter. The spring is very strong and we can't seem to get it back on. Any ideas for how to do it or where to take it to have it put back together? Thanks.

How do you realign paper cutter blades?

Instead of figuring out how to adjust the arm, I've adjusted the metal plate on the board itself that the arm cuts against. There are several screws that hold this plate in place. Loosen them a bit. This will give you some play, where you can push the plate closer towards the blade, and then retighten. Between this, and making sure you put some pressure on the arm to make a tight fit when you are cutting, you should have better luck. (02/16/2009)
