Hi........I am new at this forum, but accidently stumpled upon it while doing a search, found it interesting and funny. Thought I would pass this on to in the event it should happen to you.
I had purchased a new pair of fiscar snippers last year with the intentions of making a rag quilt. But made the rag quilt this year and just finished snipping it. When I started snipping my snippers started feeling choppy, like the blades were rubbing or some problem with the spring. Called the company and they told me to slightly unscrew the screw that holds the blades together, (you need a philip screwdriver), and lo and behold they worked just beautifully again. So thought I would pass this on.
