    Issue with Signblazer 6.0 and Redsail Vinyl plotter

    Here's something to try -- Download and install a new copy of SBE program HERE -----> http://www.uscuttersupport.com/downloads/Software/SignBlazer/signblazer_setup.exe What do you mean, Redsail drivers? SBE has the cutter drivers built-in. (Unless there's an Emulation driver for USB that is specific to that model? Try throwing the MH cutter emulation CDM20828 at it). http://www.uscuttersupport.com/downloads/Drivers/cdm20828_setup_windows.exe

    Print verus cutting

    Who you talking to, Willis? MissDee was here for 1 day, randomly, in 2018, and you show up years later with some mediocre advice, and that blind link to a .vDoc attachment you expect people to download and open? .vDoc can be created to transmit malware and virus! Easily. No thanks, Dave.

    Vinyl Express Cutter RII series

    Cliff it. You're likely deep into this thing already for more than it's worth. Used cutters that are given away because they don't work, are not usually something you want to be screwing around with. TIme is money. Loading up a parts cannon and firing blindly? No thanks. Not with a car, not with a cutter. Trying to replace a ribbon cable sounds odd, because the head is getting juice, so what would replacing a cable, that is right now providing the power, offer in the way of benefit? Reverse the polarity on the power wires inside the cutting head maybe? Take off the cover of that and just see how things are connected.

    Log of vinyl ?

    Well this IS Great Britain, they drive on the wrong side of the street, and eat crumpets. In the USA, we call something else logs. (I prefer not to get more descriptive, it's sorta gross)

    Vinyl for vehicle lettering?

    UScutter sells a refurb 34" MH for $287. (no stand included, that's another $18 more). The SC is $520. --- Substantial difference in pricing, several hundreds of $$$ --- and remember, the cutter is just one aspect of your investment that's needed for specifically this one purpose. Go with 10 yards of white (?) 751 24' and do your projects. You won't be wasting much vinyl getting the machine running. It'll be painless, and you'll have that truck lettered in no time after the unit arrives. Mustn't forget to obtain the app tape! Hell, that transfer tape is about $80 by itself ... plus grab a 6"squeegee, and a nice pick tool; it's best to get these things you need all in one order and consolidate the shipping fees.

    Vinyl for vehicle lettering?

    As a past user of the MH, my opinion is go for it. Especially since you are aiming for a project the MH can handle!

    Because they look like logs!

    Cutting Size

    Murphy, whazzup!!!! Not sure what you've got going on there. Give us better details. Also, remember that there are two options for sending cuts -- WYSIWYG (absolute position) and ORIGIN (where you set the machine). Those are software settings in the design/cut program.

    Part for mh 871-mk2

    Yeppers, it is indeed the top piece from the carriage assembly. Looking at it, I would venture an educated guess that the SC carriage can work, since it appears to have basically the same configuration. https://www.uscutter.com/Replacement-Carriage-for-SC-Series-Vinyl-cutters

    Part for mh 871-mk2

    That is the Reflanger Maflix. C'mon Milton, get with the program here. How did you break it?
  12. You'll need to buy CAST vinyl, which is much higher cost than the regular stuff. Going over rivets with calendared vinyl is not recommended. And use the soft squeegee around the rivets --- 1/2-rounded felt squeegee.

    Tee Shirt or Decal

    Hi Doug, That's more than one question, but let's see where we land. 1. The logo is going to be photographed, which produces a pixel-based graphic. (RASTER) 2. Since you are describing a full-color end result, the use of cut vinyl sounds highly improbable. (Show the logo here if you want). 3. You'll be able to obtain a high-resolution image (.jpeg or .tiff or even .pdf) and just send the raster file to be printed by a wholesale printing company. (Plastisol transfers)
