    Thanks, that totally worked. Now, however, every time I use it it jams? What can I do to resolve this?

    • Tecre says:

      Hmmm, are you sure there is nothing still left in that upper die? (Sometimes there can be multiple shells, mylar, etc.) If the problem persists, please call Tecre at (920)922-9168 for service assistance! Thank you!
