Hoping you all have ideas! I bought a Recollections brand edger lever punch (sort of like the Martha Stewart ones) from Michael's, and it's stuck. No longer have the package/receipt so can't return, and I've used it less than 5 times. The lever won't push down. It's stuck in the open position. I looked and the top metal piece is not stuck in the bottom one (like the paper still goes between the metal dies). And I can't see where it's catching. Any ideas before I toss it out?

do you have any WD40 or Pam Spray? Maybe try lightly dousing the springs in the handle? If it was the punch part that was stuck closed i would say use wax paper to 'grease' the blades.

There are tutorials on-line that explain how to take punches apart and what to look out for, etc.
If you would be tossing it anyway, maybe it's worth a try...?

Bring it back to Michaels even without a receipt. I am sure that there is some kind of guarantee and it can't hurt.
