speed mat cutter

I am having trouble with my Easterly Speed Mat Cutter. The blade is getting caught and cutting into the backing board and destroying mat. Anyone use the Speed Mat? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Had the head resprung last yr.
I don't have a lot of experience, but a museum I cut mats for has one I use occasionally... just a guess, but maybe one of the gizmo's that keep the blade in place has either worn or is otherwise compromised, maybe the nylon piece at the tip of the blade????
You may want to give Shawn a call at Speedmat. 1-800-882-7017 He will likely have your problem diagnosed and/or adjusted with just a few minutes on the phone.

We sold ours, but he was always excellent when we called.
