  Problem solved
  Posted by: tattoolenny on Jan-19-13 11:02 PM (EST)
 

Thank you to everyone for our help. The problem turned out to be a spring inside the blade head that when removed had sheared in half. Also the blade housing appears to have been squeezed, so the spring has been replaced and the housing spread a tiny bit and now the blade drops easily, sticking is resolved. Just one minor problem remains. I am not sure what the function of the spring is. Or how to adjust the tension to make the spring function. Right now the blade drops by gravity. Anyone care to enlighten me on this information? Thanks again!
