I found another brand of this kind of punch on eBay. I'll probably buy that one. More money, but if it doesn't work I can return it.
I can see where its cutting when I flip mine over so I can line the paper up. This particular punch is pretty sturdy, but I've had it quite a while and it was an older punch when I bought it. It sounds like the newer ones may not be made of the same sturdy metal and plastics that the older ones are. Its a shame they cut quality to make a couple extra pennies...
