General Discussion / Button Machine problems

I have several questions related to my old button machine that I got when starting up my business a year ago and buying out another upholstery business.
1.  My cutter does not cut completely through fabric.  Not even one thickness.  How do I sharpen the edge so it works again?
2.  I watched a video on using the button maker and it showed a cutting platform. I don't have one with my OLD machine.  Where can I get one? Right now I use a piece of wood and piece of cardboard.
3.  What is the secret to covering buttons with vinyl or very thick fabric?  I have had problems doing this and getting the shank part to completely tuck the fabric in.
4.  My button machine came with no directions.  Do I need to regularly oil the dies to get things to work correctly/smoothly?

Hope someone can help me.  Thanks.
