    st some point you have to decide when it is better to just jack that vinyl up and slide a new plotter that comes with new software under it . . . . not sure you are there yet but something to keep in the back of your mind. there is something to be said for peace of mind and less hassle

    In my experience, the best app liquid is RapidTac2.

    If a straight cable was needed that would work, but a Null modem cable is required between the cutter and PC/adapter.

    Very good advice. If things are deteriorating, there will be more going. There is a point when you have to give up and go new. There is no warranty with all the new parts that may not even be the problem.

    I do dry most of the times, and wet when I have to. But I always clean the surface first.

    also do NOT clean first with windex unless you clean again to remove the ammonia residue

    On your question about wet app. Buy an app solution like Slice recommended. Making some home made crap might negate the adhesive of your vinyl. There are several and they are not expensive. I rarely wet app either. Takes about 5 times as long IMO. I sometime wet the application paper after I dry installed to help it pull off a little easier. If you do wet app, and I think it's great to learn so you can do it when you need to, use paper tape not clear.

    When I decided I was going to start actually applying my work as a business I picked a few friends and family who has businesses and did their vehicles and trailers as well as my own suburban as practice and did not charge them. I also had to re-do a couple that I messed up on clients vehicles when I was green. I chalked it up to the school of hard knocks/education.

    practice makes a big difference - in the beginning I did some wet - now hardly at all with years of experience - you will learn a lot quickly and don't let some problems frustrate you - you just redo and learn from each application.

    Your null modem cable should be similar to this https://www.ebay.com/itm/Monoprice-6ft-Null-Modem-DB-9-F-F-Molded-Cable/372769014627?epid=132084782&hash=item56cac3c363:g:~ZIAAOSwcBlebdPQ

    If you bought your machine brand new, then it should've shipped with a serial cable, which is that you connect to the cutter, and then to the adapter. It's usually a beige/putty color, but sometimes it's grey too. looks like a thin VGA cable, but has different ends.

    If it's in your town, ask if he will cut something for you. It would be best if it was a detailed design, that way you could see it run. No harm asking. Where is it that you live?

    It depends on what type of vinyl you're talking about, and storage conditions. Do you something specific in mind?
