Good Sunday Afternoon to you all that visit my blog, and thank you.
I had a bit, no a major problem Friday with my Ebosser. I treated myself to the latticed heart EF from Joanna Sheen's shop. It arrived within 2 days of ordering on line. I thought I would use this for my next card. So i set aside some time Friday to make said card. I used usual sandwich for EF and then half way through it jammed, it tried to spit it back out but only moved an inch and the machine turned off. So I turned it on again it moved forward, stopped spat back an inch and turned off. I did this for a few more times not getting any further. So I decided to go back to the help desk where I purchased it from. The man I spoke to on the helpline, he said no problem madam, just get a block of wood and a mallet and hit it out,( modern technology is FAB is'nt it ) he guaranteed me this would work. So that's what I did, did'nt move a mm. I waited until 11 o'clock pm when Paul got back from a Sev 1 call, and we both tried again, not a mm of movement. Paul said the only thing now is to take it apart.After a couple of hours my lovely Ebooser was spread all over my workroom floor the roller bearings were everywhere. Paul then said, right it's too late to put it back together now, Ill do it in the morning. Guess what!, it's still on the floor. In fairness we had people over Yesterday for an all day and evening Bar-b-q-. As I speak he is taking all the bits out to the kitchen, he is covering the island with cardboard so as not to damage it, if only he thought of doing that on my workroom floor as I now have grease to boot on my carpet. Paul is a very very intelligent man, but logic fails him sometimes.It looks like emergency ward 10 of the toolshed world in the kitchen. He said I'm not holding out much hope for the Ebosser, but I'll try and resuscitate it.
I would use me Joy Trouvalle, but can't find 2 of the plates, I've got a little spellbinder artisan but Sue's dies are too big, so I think I will have to change my focal point. I will let you know the outcome of Ebosser gate later.. I would like to add that when we managed to get the EF out, the lattice heart is thicker plastic than any other of Sue's folders I have purchased. so just to make you aware they do vary when using electric machines.
