    every professional I know uses paper tape - lots of hobbyist use clear. anyone that has tried applying clear to something like a larger back window with a compound curve know that clear will not conform to the curves like paper will

    Update: Graphtec cutter is running great! Coral x8 I have a little learning curve with but able to navigate okay through it. Goes knight press I have but still boxed up, other projects have been priority but I will get to the point on making shirts and hoodies. Been doing some glass carving with the help of the graphtec. I want to thank you all so much for helping me get going with this!

    Trust me, I am a 69 year old woman, and I don't ask for help either. I figure out a way to do things myself ALOT!!! I cut a 60" w x 150 yd roll on my miter saw. I had won 1/2 off at a vinyl business, so I bought the biggest roll that I could get. So I got 2,, 30" rolls out of the deal.

    Been years since we did the show your face - we communicate all the time but nice to put a face to the screen name. a thread this morning about why we sold the printer made me think of the old thread we had here is why we sold the printer - cheap transatlantic trips - last year your could do the rome to san juan for $450pp now lets see your mug so we can put a face to the screen name

    Figure out how long it takes you to cut and weed and process 1. Figure out your costs. Now make a profit. I don't go by any ones' prices. I figure out a profit for me. I don't care what others charge. And many charge less than me. I get and keep good business by my designs and service.

    Just because paper tape doesn't look professional, it doesn't mean that it is not the right choice for the job. . I have always used paper tape. Most professional people do.

    So my SC2 was delivered today. Such a difference in the VE cutter and the SC2 cutter. I think the oddest thing I have seen so far is I swear that this cutter was an off white, almost eggshell color when I took it out of the box and now its a light baby blue. Other than that the VinylMaster Cuts software is easy to use, the machine is easy to operate and it cuts great. I am extremely pleased with the cutter and the decision to dump the VE. I have to pay the shipping to send the VE cutter back to SW, which is an expense I'll happily pay to get rid of it. As a test I just cut out some words and it cut wonderful, in straight lines, no tracking issues. For a more detailed test I cut out some back the blue flags for an FWC officer down the street to hand out. Each flag was cut very well after a couple tries to get the speed and pressure right. I am 100% positive that this cutter is going to make me some money. The cutter is grounded to the stand and the stand itself sits on concrete.

    OK All Fixed problem after 2 hours with tec support and they could not fix so they sent ticket to Australia and said it would be 2-3 days but for some reason 3 hours later they emailed me Can you please go into the Vinyl Spooler, and from the "Settings" menu, ensure that "Force Position" is NOT selected. If it wasn't, go to the connection tab in the vinyl spooler and temporarily change the Port method to "Windows Port" and select "File". Select the file that had the problem and click "Cut now". Instead of sending the data to the cutter, it will prompt you to save a PLT file. Email this PLT file to tbtech@iifuture.com and we will check the cutting data that would be sent to the machine to rule out any software settings for you. But the force position was checked so I unchecked it and tried it and guess what it worked just fine. It didn't even occur to them that it might be checked. So I am a happy camper now. Thanks to all that tried to help me.

    blinds all down to keep heat in - so watch dog from security system and don't let him stay out over 5 minutes even though he doesn't want to come in. stay warm and safe- at 22 with humidity it can feel real cold
