The first few times I used the punch I found it to be very "sticky"...it didn't easily release the punched card stock form and it also gripped hard on the edges of the inserted card stock, so I was constantly having to pry small pieces of the paper out of the punch. Now after after seven or eight uses it does not come down all the way to punch out the shape. It's very frustrating as it's now basically useless.
I just opened the package (and threw it out) yesterday. Today I go to use this punch and it might as well go in the trash too. I am so disapointed. The lever mechanism will not go all the way down. So it doesn't cut the paper all the way...and gosh forbid you try to pull the paper out it gets all torn and you spend the next 20 minutes trying to gt it un-jammed. What a waste of money!
