I'm considering a cutter primarily for sign making. I would mostly be producing signs for use by my neighborhood association. Since this is more of a "hobby" purchase, I don't want to spend more than I have to, but I also don't want to feel like I wasted my money a year down the road. Can anyone speak briefly on the merits/drawbacks of these three cutters?
MH 34" with stand - $270
SC 34" with stand and laser - $370
TC 25" - $500
I understand that the stand is a good idea to buy from the start. I've heard some people complain about the build quality and tracking of the MH series, is the SC much better? The TC is pretty much the most I would want to spend, and it also has a smaller cutting width, is the loss of width and extra cost offset because the TC is that much nicer of a machine?
I realize this is a uscutter forum, but if anyone has a better recommendation for a cutter in the $500 and under price range that I haven't considered, please let me know as well.
