Question Carl Cutter help Please

I have a Carl cutter 220e. This is the first time I have had to change blades and now the blade does not cut straight. At the beginning of the cut it seems to curve in and then it straightens out. This is really frustrating. I have double checked that the screws are tight so the blade should be firmly in there. I thought I put the blade in correctly, but obviously I am overlooking something.

HELP!

I know some fabulous lady out there can give me advice on how to fix this problem!
I want to make straight cuts again!

Anxiously awaiting your reply . . .

Ok so I just looked at my Carl Cutter..... I know you changed the cutting blade but did you change the piece that goes under the blade? Its a strip that rests right under the blade. When that gets cut up enough it can give you problems OR if it fell out and you didn't put it back that could cause you some issues, too. (Ask me how I know?)

Yes. I changed that, too.

After I wrote this out, I went back in to see if I could figure it out. The only thing I hadn't done was turn the blade around and when I did that, it seemed to fit in perfectly. I tightened up the screws and ran a few sheets through. It is cutting fine now.

I don't feel so incompetent and I learned a lesson.

Thanks for the suggestion.
