  1. I will try to keep this short. Went away on vacation for 4 weeks. Basically shut the house down. The humidity in the house went stupid high. Had a drive by job yesterday ($3) and found the left, right and condition buttons no longer worked on the keypad. Using the PC controller did. Took the right side cover off (the one with the key pad) pulled the white ribbon off the small circuit board to get the side off. Then pulled the ribbon cable that goes to the key pad, cleaned it and put it all back together. All is well and everything working just like new. No, sorry. Didn't take pic's.

    Ok, going to try something different. I am going to post any pic's of my work in this thread and this thread only. Any new stuff I do, will resurrect this thread. Remember the last page you looked at. Keeps everything simple. (in my opinion) More to come, just wanted to try to start a new trend and this is what was on my phone.

    Strangest job I have ever been asked to do. 310 1.5 inch circles! Got dizzy watching the cutter, but could not look away. Almost fell over weeding for the same reason.

    Everyone needs a work shirt. Made this for the husband of the main owner of the campground in SD. He is legally blind, but has to help out as much as he can. So I made him head of security. If I had to guess, early 70's. And he still drives from the house to the campground. < 1/4 mile.

    As a Graphtec owner I was going to take offense to that old timer thing. Then I realized I are one!!!!!

    Single tag states

    For those of you that make novelty tags for cars in the single tag states, is there restrictions on them? I do not mean the vulgar stuff, More wondering about tags that look like other states or out of country. Have someone wanting a fake Ontario plate (looks very real) in the state of Arizona. And probably driving through other states. Any help on this is appreciated.

    I wish it could have looked better, but this was what was decided on to not get to close to a "real" one. Special thanks to Skeeter for her help with the law.

    If I remember correctly, you need the cutter unplugged from the computer until after the driver is installed????

    Mark, you are having way to much fun with that thing. And making me want one!

    Exactly, I don't cut reflective, but everything else cuts great without changing anything. Set the blade by Skeeter specs and you should be good to go. I do not cut fast, I think after the design I need a beer break, so sit back and watch. Still done before the beer, but a break anyway.

    VinylMaster CUT freezing

    Ok, ya. Not a corel file problem. Why DXF? Eps would be a better choice. IMO.

    VinylMaster CUT freezing

    Sounds to me like there is a problem with the corel file. Have you tried other files just to check?
