    When to change blades?

    Thanks for all the replies. I've had my machine for almost 2 years now and still on the same blade for hobby use, but I'm getting lots of use lately as I've been cutting a bunch of yard signs. I think I'm at number 80 so far. I still have my little plastic case with a spare 45 and 60 so I should be good for a while it sounds like.

    When to change blades?

    I'm in middle of a big job. I'm making a bunch of yard signs. My SC2 is cutting fine, but I'm concerned about when I should change blades. I'm still on my first 45 degree blade that came with the cutter. I still have another 45 and a 60 from the factory. Will it stop cutting abruptly, or will it just slowly start cutting poorly? What should I start to notice when it's time to change blades?

    These are selling good right now

    Thought Id throw out this idea if you haven't seen them yet. There are lots of versions on Facebook right now. These are what I'm selling. I've sold quite a few in 4 different schools. Luckily, I had a good supply of colors and signs ready.

    My first post! Is this possiable?

    Keep in mind, you'll also have to let the first color dry completely before doing the next color, and hopefully pulling the second layer of vinyl off doesn't pull up any of your first layer of paint.
  5. I've been thinking about getting a heat press but not sure how worth it they are. What kind of price should I be expecting to be able to buy blank tee shirts for? It seems to me that there's not a lot of profit per shirt... Maybe I'm wrong?

    I think I'm cutting too deep...

    Actually, this thread was just a joke...... I saw the pic that US Cutter has of their blade holder and thought it was funny.

    So it's not supposed to stick out as much as it is in the picture I posted above...? : )

    I think I'm cutting too deep...

    My US Cutter vinyl cutter seems to be cutting too deep. I didn't know how to set the depth of the blade, but I saw an image on US Cutters website that showed me how far the blade should be sticking out so I just copied that...

    Vinyl work on a parade float

    My daughter is on our towns royal court this year, and does parades during the warmer months. Another towns festival is during October and they have a huge Halloween parade. The visiting royalty and their families usually transform their normal float into some fun theme just for that parade. Our court decided to go with the Toy Story theme. I had a bunch of 4x8 choroplast sheets that the city gave me after an election one time so I donated them to the float. We painted them and used them to make the sides of this wagon, Al's Toy Barn, the toybox, some ABC blocks, monkeys, and some other various signs. I used my vinyl cutter to make the Toy Story signs, the Radio Flyer logo, the Al's Toy Barn sign, ABC blocks and the Play-Dough buckets. It turned out awesome! Too bad it was all for one parade. Here are some pics!

    Hello from tx

    I also have the SC2 and am using VM with no complaints. I may have to download SBE just for those graphics though. Now that you have the license key, you should be up and running in no time. I had zero problems getting up and running with my SC2. although I thought they offered a starter package with Mac software....? I could be wrong.
