ARGH! snap press....

WHY does my snap press insist on breaking snaps? or cracking them... or not centering them properly... I have the heavy duty snap press. Is it something I am doing wrong? soooo frustrating! I had to take a snap off a diaper I made yesterday and I put a hole in it help!

You can adjust the pusher in the middle using an allen wrench. Also sockets can break easy if you push hard. Baby ville ones are more brittle than kam as well. See the pic of the nut I am pointing to with the pink pen.
