Hope for my Big Shot?

Well, I contacted Sizzix customer service today.  They said it sounded like I need a new crankshaft.  Lucky for me it was only $5.00 shipped.  I of course ordered it.  It should be here soon with instructions on how to change it out.  I was worried that if there was a repair, it would be expensive.  Lucky for me it is hopefully an inexpensive repair.  Hopefully I will be cranking away in just a few days.  I hope that this fixes the problem for me.  I have been using my fuse to finish cutting out the project I was working on.

My Poor Big Shot

I picked up my Big Shot to cut out some letters this evening.  Things are terrible.  My Big Shot is making all kinds of squeaking and popping noises.  I have never had it make this fuss before.  I was only cutting some sizzlets.  I was using my platform on the correct tab (I checked).  But it is just not behaving properly.  I guess it is a good thing I bought the Fuse.  Looks like my Big Shot is on its last leg.  It makes me sad.  I love my Big Shot.  I guess I am off to look at some solutions for attempting to fix it.  It is several years old.  It was my first die cutting machine.  I have used it often.  I hope there is help for it.  I will miss it if not.
