  1. Today
  2. Will the FC7000 run? Without it lighting up? If so, maybe it could be ran with the Graphtec Cutting Controller right from the computer. That's all I do anyway. I don't change anything on the vinyl cutter. Both cutters might be able to be ran from the Graphtec cutting Controllers right from your computer.
  3. he has 3 cutters that need work for sell. the fc isn't lighting up. c the oops above will fix it
  4. You can find the service manuals for both online. So what is wrong with the FC7000-75?
  5. like any of my other hobbies I get n to, I somehow usually get n to a lil buying/trading/selling. seems like a few of u on here do the same. anyway ive found a couple used graphtecs with issues. 1 is a ce 5000-120 he says it worked fine and was hooked up thru a parallel cable. he let a friend borrow a part off of it, then when back together it wouldn't work again , says all mechanicals on the cutter work, just not the screen the other is a fc 7000-75 he says they used it where he worked and he really don't rem what happened to it , but again screen issues, but this 1 isnt lighting up mayb above my knowledge and abilities. but wouldn't mind giving them a try. that is if I can find pieces/parts and either repair manuals or schematics. I didn't ask if he was a member on here or not.

    What to bring for wall install?

    I've ended up doing several large wall jobs recently and I think I've been lucky because they were some of the easiest jobs I've ever done. My install kit is about the same as yours. Vinyl, tape to mark the placement of where the decal needs to go, tape measure and level to find where it needs to go, ladder, squeegee. I just gave the wall a quick wipe down with a rag before starting. I do keep an install kit with a bunch of other goodies in my car so I had a bunch of other tools if I needed them, but so far that's all I've used.

    Shane that's pretty much a Big Squeegee home made. I think they run about $100 if I remember so home made is cheaper if you don't count your time.

    So what do you do with a 24" or 30" roll of transfer tape? It would look to be pretty awkward. Those rolls are heavy. You guys with those machine shops should look into making yourselves a Mask-Rite transfer tape applicator. It will hold, any width of transfer tape and you can just keep on masking any length. I have done a 16 ft decal on an 8 ft table with it. With a Mask-Rite you don't have anything bolted to your table either. Just put it away under your table.

    So a man named Ben Ayer had posted a video and I sent him a message and he sent me these pictures and another video. So the credit goes to Ben on this one. "Teflon cutting board from Walmart. 3” pvc pipe small board some felt and glue plus four screws was the cheapest way I found to do it Hope this helped" taper_video-1.mp4

    Sorry about that, seems the video is only available to people in whatever facebook group that was. And I don't know what group. I sent him a message asking if he'll make the video public, so we will see.

    If your having a problem, please start your own thread, so we know exactly what your problem is. More info needed. No mention of which cutter or operating system.
  13. I am having the same issue with my X8 program. I have seen a few videos and I cannot find the LAUNCHER for CM3
  14. Yesterday
  15. No, nothing will be added to it. The shelter house is complete, and they just want a sign that lets people know the PTO donated the money for it. Ive attached a picture of the structure. Thinking I will attach it to one of the middle poles facing inward maybe.
  16. Is this something that will need to be added to from time to time? If so better plan on a good way to do that. I do a couple banners for a softball team and they have various levels of donors with the low end just getting a small name on the silver side and gold donors getting a single color logo and platinum getting a larger full color logo. It encourages larger donations. They can also remove them the next year or add more. It's all surrounding the teams logo on a 4ft x 6ft banner.

    My felt looks similar to this but rectangle so you can use all the sides. I have trimmed it a time or two in my miter saw when the edge started to get worn. I just saw it at my local supply shop one day and bought it to try out. <edit> well look what USCutter has. Whoot whoot! https://www.uscutter.com/GreenStar-Deluxe-Felt-Squeegee

    What to bring for wall install?

    I avoid install indoors as much as I can but I came to the conclusion that a dry micro-cloth was the best. Any type of cleaner seemed to cause me issues even if I wiped it down a day early. I think it moisturizes the paint or something. While the dust with dry cloth and have a LOT of patience. If it's water based 631 do NOT try the wet removal trick where you spray the paper tape after you get it up. That works great on cars and stuff but not on walls. I tended to have to carefully work the app tape off while continuing to work the vinyl back down on the wall. It will want to pull up often but you can push it back on the wall. I have a felt squeegee that the wrap guys use (I think) that is sort of like the soccer ball and will help push the vinyl down into the texture of the wall and you can go ver the vinyl with it after the app tape is off too. This is just one mans opinion your mileage may vary.

    Tweezers. If it is not a smooth wall, maybe add a tennis ball to your list. In that same vein, something to push on the vinyl while you lift it up with tweezers like this https://goo.gl/UyUAvX if it won't stick to the wall and wants to lift with the transfer tape. 631 is much less sticky than 751. You could have issues if the wall has texture. Alcohol could discolor the wall. A cleaner that won't discolor and dries fast.
  20. Looking for some of your ideas on this. I've had several running through my head and am not sure the best route to go. Our schools PTO used their funds to build a new shelter house. They have asked me to make some sort of sign they can post on it to show that. They have left it up to me on how to do it. I thought about engraving it on colored medal and sticking it on a piece of wood (like a plaque). I'm afraid something like that would not hold up to the elements though. I'm thinking my only option for longevity is going to be good ole oracal vinyl on a plain piece of metal. Just seeing if anyone might have another idea. I obviously want it to look as good as possible, but it will live outside in the brutal Iowa weather Thanks

    What to bring for wall install?

    So yesterday a customer finally nailed down exactly what they wanted and I cut it out. I got them all covered in transfer tape today and they want me to come install it tomorrow (if all goes well with their timeline). I'm wondering how I should prep the wall and what I should bring? This is my first real install on an indoor wall, and I don't want to forget something stupid that I should have brought. This is a painted Sheetrock wall install of 3 large decals about 70" X 36" using 631 and paper transfer tape. I've already tested the walls with 751 and it stuck very well. Here's what I'm thinking to bring, let me know if I should bring anything else: Vinyl Blue painters tape Ladder Level Tape measure Pencil Exacto knife Scissors squeegees Cleaning cloth How should I prep the walls? Common surface cleaner, or soapy water spray, then isopropyl alcohol?
  22. Got on today to cut some orders and notified of update. I update as usual and now it reversed my feed end, changed speed and pressure to 0 so have to figure that out again....but the real problem is its cuts exactly half size. 11" design cuts at 5.5". Of course cant call craftedge and have to do the dumb email support which can take up to 1-2 days and if nothing by day 3.....send another. Anyone have this happen to them with these un-needed updates? Cause worked just fine before
