Fiskars has a lifetime warranty on there trimmers, or that is what customer service told me, so you should have no problem. I got my replacement part in 2 days, and so far I haven't had to replace it but once. Good Luck!
You're probaaly referring to the post I put up a few months ago...
I had my blade replaced twice already. I'm on my 3rd blade and it's doing the same thing...ugh!
As great as they are w/ their customer service I am truly getting irritated w/ the fact that it keeps happening! I'm actually thinking of just throwing away the whole thing and going w/ another brand!
I have an EK Success Cutterpede rotary trimmer and I love it. I've had it for 6 years now and bits are starting to fall off it, but I shall get another one when this one dies. It's light-weight, folds up pretty flat for cropping, cuts accurately and straight.
There are umpteen different blades you can get, and I'm only on my third straight blade in 6 years. You have to replace the cutting mats more often, but one mat can be turned round and over so you get 4 uses out of each.
Oddly enough, I started to check out school auctions for paper cutters. I have found that the old paper cutters with the wood base that we all had in school are fairly cheap this way. Just remove the screws in the blade and take it to a knife sharpener. They will sharpen it usually for a fair price and you really only need to resharpen every couple of years. With practice these last a lifetime and work perfect every time. I have a 20" x 20" that only cost me $25 two years ago and $10 to sharpen. And WOW, the amount of things I can cut at once perfectly, is great.
