This may seem like a really REALLY stupid question. But I'm a fairly new
homeowner, this is the first spring with a yard, and we haven't really used
many electric tools. :)
Today's problem is the Weed Eater. We bought it second-hand, it works great,
but is now out of line. It's one of those Tap and Go varieties (officially,
it's an electric Weed Eater 1210), where you just hit the thing on the
ground and more string comes out.
Seemed simple enough. We went to the local Canadian Tire and bought some
trimmer line...but we're unsure of how to put it in properly. We've got it
in there, it's spinning nicely and chopping things, but the line doesn't
advance when you tap it on the ground as we did before.
It has a spool to wrap the line around, but methinks we're making a mistake
with where to put the end of it when we're done wrapping it on. There's a
hole that it could fit in, or a notch that it could slip into.
Help please, if ye can!
