Hi button guy! I recently start using my cutter (Dynamo Hand-Held Graphic Punch Cutter) but only after only 5 button pins the cutter doesn’t work properly and the paper doesn’t pop up as it should no mater the pressure used. Please take into consideration I haven’t made any for a couple of months however I still can’t believe it doesn’t work at all. Is that normal? What can I do now? I tried using some aluminium foil to sharpen it without good results. Any advice?
The problem is the Dynamo Hand-Held Graphic Punch Cutter. I see these on the American Button Makers site but they are NOT American. They are made in China/ Maybe Korea and are just not the quality of the actual American made products.
You cannot sharpen this kind of cutter. I can only suggest getting a good cutter. Good cutting makes good buttons but you need a real graphic punch “Made in USA” and you will have no problems. Get good tools and you will never look back.
Like most “cheap” products this one is destined for the landfill I expect.
For an idea on pricing for quality cutters, check out People Power Press’s website They have various sizes of punches, and rotary cutters, that will make your life so much easier.
