Hi there! My blade isn't sharp enough anymore so I want to change it. But there's a very strong magnet inside... :evil: :roll: I can't get out the old blade. Is there any trick??????? :? :?

Hope you can help me again :D .

Thanks from Zara

can you extend the blade then push the top to extend it further, you can then grab the blade (tweezers are good) and then let go of the top, the blade should let go then.

unless the holder unscrews somehow, I don't know what the eclips holders look like :)

Just a tip....I do this one or 2 times with my blades and it seems to extend the life. Put a sheet of aluminum foil on your mat and do some cuts with it. It sharpen the blade and adds some life to it.

that will work to an extent,it should be the thick aluminium foil (more craft metal) and you only need straight lines but if the blade is chipped (very easy to do, you only have to knock them or use the wrong force and the end can chip) then no amount of sharpening will fix it.

for the hassle of tin foil on my mats etc not to mention it can go up inside the holder, it's easier and cheaper to just replace the blade.
I will only resharpen if I need to finish a project and cannot my the spares or I have no spares :)
