Recommended Posts

Here is a copy of the e-mail I sent them and a copy of the letter Lindsey From customer service sent back to me. I will also attempt to add the directions she sent me on how to change the blade.

Subject: Easy Cutter

I belong to a large group of women who make miniature dollhouses, many of us have the product you sell called the easy cutter. We all love the product with the exception of one thing: changing the blade. I know of several who loved the product until it came time to change the blade at which time they had such trouble changing it they have tossed the cutter in the corner and swore to never use one again. Those who have managed to get the new blade in have found that it no longer cuts correctly. If you could offer any advice as to an easy way to change that blade any little hints tips or techniques that I could share with others it would be greatly appreciated.

Here is a link to just one of the threads about the easy cutter


The next one is a lot more positive


I would hate to see people not buy your wonderful product from reading about the difficulty of changing the blade.

Thank you very much for your time


And her reply back to me:

Dear Rhonda,

I am very sorry for the inconvenience. I have attached the instructions on how to change the blade. Unfortunately, when this kit was originally manufactured, we did not yet have instructions on this. We are working to get them included in the packaging to prevent this from happening. We would like to send you two of our easy cutters to show our appreciation for your patience. If there are any other women that have damaged their easy cutters in the process of changing the blade, please have them return it to us with Attn: Lindsey and we will replace the easy cutter.

Our address is:

PO Box 564

400 S Indiana St

Hobart, IN 46342

Thank you,


I am just wowed about her response talk about awesome Customer service!

Ya gotta love a company who writes instructions in MY kind of techie talk (PICTURES!).


But what do they mean by Replace "A" with "B" ?? I'm hoping it becomes clear in the doing, 'cause it is sure causing me to scratch my head in the reading!

But what do they mean by Replace "A" with "B" ??

The nut has two sides; in "A" the side with the "collar" around the hole is facing towards you & in "B" it's facing the cutter. Maybe to keep everything aligned while it's apart so it won't go back together crooked?

Actually that is EXACTLY how I changed the blade, and it ended up no longer in line, it's slightly off at the tip, meaning it won't cut correctly. The sleeve insert is just too tightly in the hole. And I found you can't pound the sleeve in after replacing the blade, I had to use vice grips to press fit the sleeve.
