  1. Today is Sept, 22, 2008, and still have not received my part! What a bummer, it's been 3 weeks and still can't use my new cutter. Is it coming by bird? Received a UPS tracking number on 9/17/08 from USCutter that says it's not a valid tracking number when I follow the link. I'm beginning to think this was not a good idea to purchase from USCutter. Lost a alot of jobs this weekend with football homecoming for our school, everybody is tired of waiting to see the samples!
  2. Here's a picture, the closest I could get. I don't know if you can see the blade it sticks out just a tad. Kathy
  3. Thanks for you quick reply and test cut. I tried cutting USA out in 2" letters, got perforation on the bottom of the "U" and "A" and one side of the weed box. The test with the paper & pen ran smoothly on the USA and the football player. Both pinch rollers seem to be feeding correctly with the vinyl and paper remaining flat. I do think a feel resistance when I try to spin the blade, it's hard to spin. Could it be that I need a new blade holder? Is it possible I got a defective one? Or a bad batch of blades? Let me know what you think I should do next. I really appreciate all your time & help.
  4. Here's a copy of the vector file, the size I'm trying to cut is 4 1/2" wide x 5 1/2" tall. I'm on a PC and using SignBlazer Elements and Corel Draw X4 to design with. I'm a graphic designer by trade and finding this very frustrating that I can't figure this out. All of the times I try with different settings give the same bad results. Thanks for helping me out.

  5. Thanks for the replies, but so far NO such luck yet in getting a good cut. I've read the thread about resolving this issue in the Instructional Contribution section of the forums and did what it said. And the other suggestions by you. Here's a picture of what I'm trying to cut. I'm almost ready to give up, is it always this hard to get it right the first time setting it up? Does each different job you cut need different settings? I can't believe it's this hard to find the right settings. Could something else be wrong? What should I do next? Thanks, Kathy
  6. Hi, I'm Kathy from Chicago and I just got my LaserPoint 24" a few days ago. I'm having a very hard time getting it to cut smoothly. No matter how many times I've tried, I can't get a smooth cut on the whole design. Some parts will look smooth, others preforated and some with the corner sticking out. I have tried changing the blade, changing the pressure, the speed, and the depth of the blade. It has been two days now of tweeking and no good cuts. Please help, I'm beginning to think somethings wrong with the blade holder. Any suggestions, all are welcome and needed. Thanks, Kathy
