    Hi Ronin, Take apart the entire blade holder itself and verify there is no debris lurking inside preventing the blade from freely spinning. A drop of light sewing-machine oil into the bearing hole is also recommended.

    This is correct way to set your blade depth. Dotted cuts and skipping is usually too much blade exposed. Sign vinyl is only 2-3 mil, You only cut with the very tip of the blade. Make sure you haven't broken the blade tip off. To start with, you should set your blade depth correctly, by taking the blade holder out of the machine, and in your hand, firmly cut across a piece of scrap vinyl, you will be cutting. You should only be cutting the vinyl and barely a mark on wax paper backing, Adjust blade to get there, Then put the blade holder back in machine, and use the force of the machine to get there, same results, only cutting the vinyl and barely a mark in wax paper backing. You should just barely see and feel your blade tip out of the blade holder. Blade offset is for making the corners sharp. Correct combination is less blade, more force.

    Recreate it as best you can with whichever font is the closest. We are probably over-thinking this....our customers rarely notice the slight differences we agonize over! LOL.

    Just need to go through all the basics - blade depth blade pressure - just enough to cut through the vinyl & adhesive, but not cut into the backing offset pull from slack - do not pull vinyl directly from roll, always pre-pull enough slack to run the entire job if the cuts still aren't turning out the way you want, try slowing the cut speed down. please keep in mind that stepper motor cutters are not as accurate as servo motors, but you should be able to get a very decent cut for that skull graphic you're trying to cut.

    Indeed the P is distinct and not equal in 'construction' to the other letters. (see the bottom of the P with that indentation & rounded serif bottom, not a straight-across squared serif base like on the A)

    I noticed that and I believe the "P" is a different font. I assumed she was looking for the other lettering....not just the "P".

    The key is the 'P' -- very unique. None of the suggestions provided by Sue will reproduce that P with the open-curl.

    No perfect match here....Clarendon, Centurion Old or Bodoni MT Condensed Bold is about as close as I can get. They are outlined so that will make them look a bit different.

    Have you tried looking for VinylMaster training videos? There are tons of them, one specifically for USCutter Vinly Master Cut tracing.
