  1. Many of us started with an entry level plotter. I put some money aside from each job and updated every year or two until I reached the graphtec ce series and had several of those. This last month after 12 years I updated to a graphtec fc series. Each machine paid for the one that. Updated to along with some pocket money thru the years. On advantage of starting with the my is you will become proficient at troubleshooting. we all started somewhere and then the vinyl bug got us.

    still a little under the weather but did a few cuts today and I thought I was in love with the ce series, now I am spoiled for life. Skeeter you was right and not the crazy graphtec lady with the fc . . . it's unbelievable.

    cable of my plotter

    I know nothing about this seller but just used my old friend google to search https://www.ebay.com/i/272246763724?rt=nc&_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D225086%26meid%3D6ded8ea99ea64ba9920ee171f9c6376a%26pid%3D100677%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D30%26mehot%3Dag%26sd%3D282040939411%26itm%3D272246763724%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2386202%26algv%3DDefaultOrganic

    157 lbs between the boxes and that seems a little light and 40lb s for the light pallet - 197 shipping weight

    figured my back was fubar already and have to take meds for a few days so had stacey help me put it on the stand and I can fiddle with the little stuff tomorrow if I can move. first plotter I felt I needed to put the screws in the stand one - - - of course most I ever paid for a plotter so . . . . You wasn't kidding about tall - and I like the power button up front. as much as it weighs I think this one will be down there a while.

    I took,the catch basket off of the ce5000 long ago and never looked back. Probably won’t install this one but see what you was talking about it being different. I think this one tucks closer when not wed from the pictures

    I know that is what it said for the 30" but didn't realize part of the stand etc was in that box as there is never anything in a box with a plotter - that is one tough fed ex lady= mine came on a pallet
  8. sturdier isn't the word for it = took 3 people to get the main box off our truck and the stand box alone was as heavy as a ce series plotter - - - we got it to the basement and inventoried parts = assembly will happen over the next few days. but had to comment on what a dang beast it is just getting it in the house already. I knew when my daughter on one end of the moving strap turned red and she works as an rn in a nursing home lifting people that this was going to be different than the other plotters. High hopes and fingers crossed Skeeter you crack me up with the sturdier and more rugged - could have used a forklift lol
  9. I had a fc4100 once, was a beast. This is coming on a pallet so could be interesting getting it to the basement. May have to call in the son in laws
  10. lol - unfortunately the ce6000 that I had is now residing in wisconsin and the ce6000-60 plus is for sale but I have used it today while waiting on the fc9000 to arrive this week. and yes you did tell me to hold onto the ce6000 - I just never had a graphtec not live up to my high expectations before
  11. after feeling the ce7000 (this particular one at least) wasn't living up to my expectations - it is going back and a fc-9000 coming after skeeter telling me for years I should upgrade :/ I blamed it on skeeter when my wife asked

    Personally, I would just reactivate it
  14. the vinyl manufactures have told me at shows that the vinyl is uv resistant whereas the adhesive isn't
