You need certain basics to get started making your own jewelry such as thread cord, pliers, clasps, jump rings, ear wires and cutters. But it depends on the type/ style of jewelry that you are hoping to make as to what else you will need. Get advice from a beading shop.

I had an issue with these before, put a dime under the front middle of the base, it should fix it, if its the same problem i had. can you tilt it and will it work? sometimes when the base is not flush this tends to happen.

I have used 18ga lamp wire but you can use wire as thin as telephone wire. My rule of thumb is to use thicker wire (lower gauge number) the more motors on the train you are running. 20 or 22ga is generally used by most.

Here is a great blog on how to change a glue gun nozzle. But big things to remember, preheat the gun, use gloves or a wrench and be careful! If you don't preheat your glue gun, you are likely to strip the nozzle and then be unable to use it again and may even break the gun. Hope this helps!

If you have an Explore One, Explore Air, Explore Air2 or the Maker, the software program, Design Space is not yet advanced to work offline on your computer.
You can do some light editing if you are using an iPad..
Provocraft has promised offline functionality since the current program was released in 2012.

For humor - the CEO recently indicated on social media several times he had over 100 'software engineers' working on Design Space. which is more than NASA had to land on the moon doing everything manually. This is not a complex program
Unfortunately his social media posts are not too accurate. Recently he indicated Provocraft was a very small company and selling their machines at losses and could not afford a school program - while he was encouraging users to take their Cricut to School....keepign in mind you have to use their proprietary software and another graphic program to actually work with most medium to complex projects.

With over $240M in sales in 2018 - and still a private company - not so small and realistically they could never afford to sell that many machines at a loss for very long. Cheap plastic made in China with a 12 mo warranty and no repair or service offered - throw away product.
Like most issues with their software, they are not a software company and do not do well at all - unfortunately.

Educated guess that the adjustment screw (knob) is not locked OR the screw shaft is worn on the top/bottom allowing the gear to jump off the screw thread. Does it shake when the planner is off? A question is Is the thickness indicator still showing the original setting?
From another site: Once the height is set, remember to push the black bar back down to lock the cutting head in place.

Ref. recocking the spring handle in your Arrow T 50 Stapler
1. secure the stapler in a vise. You need three hands to recock the handle spring.
2. Using a notched tack lifter hand tool, with one hand holding the handle so as to expose the spring, place the notched tool against the spring arm and force it to the rear. it will now be under tension.
3. Wiggle the handle into position so that you can quickly insert the clevis pin. Once secured, let go your handle that is now under tension. Replace clevis ring.
4. Dry fire to test.
