  1. You should start at 0.25mm plus or minus 0.05 Use the test feature This is how to set the blade depth correctly. You cannot just eyeball it. This works To start with, you should set your blade depth correctly, by taking the blade holder out of the machine, and firmly cut across a piece of scrap vinyl, you will be cutting. You should only be cutting the vinyl and barely a mark on wax paper backing, Adjust blade to get there, Then put the blade holder back in machine, and use the force of the machine to get there, same results, only cutting the vinyl and barely a mark in wax paper backing. You should just barely see and feel the blade tip out of the blade holder.
  2. There are not any set numbers as far as setting up a vinyl cutter. Even the same vinyl cutter can be different. Sounds like you need to adjust the blade offset. Use the TEST feature on the cutter and see how sharp the squares are. Adjust to get them square. How did you set your blade depth? The blade depth is the first thing you have to get correct. That cutter should run just fine on USB.

    2 weeks off, plotter off

    Always make sure that your com port number in your computer device manager matches the com port number in your cutting software..

    Setting Blade Holder Into Cutter

    Is this a new cutter that you purchased from a dealer or did you purchase the Seiki used? How long have you owned the Seiki?

    splitting a roll without a core

    Trust me, I am a 69 year old woman, and I don't ask for help either. I figure out a way to do things myself ALOT!!! I cut a 60" w x 150 yd roll on my miter saw. I had won 1/2 off at a vinyl business, so I bought the biggest roll that I could get. So I got 2,, 30" rolls out of the deal.

    splitting a roll without a core

    You don't have a friend to help you? You could tape around the outside of the vinyl. to hold it. Or you could use the core you already have, inside the roll to make it firm,

    splitting a roll without a core

    loosen the roll up, put a piece of pvc pipe inside where you want to cut it in half. put it thru the miter saw. Macgyver here.

    splitting a roll without a core

    Looking at Amazon there are many rolls of 15" wide x 10 yds 751 in many colors...Free ship. It would have been easier to use.

    splitting a roll without a core

    Is your cutter not wide enough to hold it? If the roll is that tight, you may need to unroll the roll in the opposite direction to even get it to feed thru your vinyl cutter. It may not lay flat. Curled up.

    The saga of the PCUT CS1200

    Well possibly very different then. The Pcuts that were sold to US were baud rate 9600. I am going by that. Maybe it's a region thing. Nodes in a circle would not be as many as nodes in text. It is the amount of nodes in a design. The Tripp-Lite controls the data going to your cutter. It has helped hundreds and hundreds here with problems and got buyers away from using the cheap USB. It is a better connection with the Tripp-lite or a serial connection.

    Setting Blade Holder Into Cutter

    The cutter can't be operating correctly up against the red button on the right. Move the carriage head several inches to the left. . And then turn the power on. Seiki has tech support, and a website. Contact them. They are out of Sparks , Nevada This is how to set your blade depth correctly To start with, you should set your blade depth correctly, by taking the blade holder out of the machine, and firmly cut across a piece of scrap vinyl, you will be cutting. You should only be cutting the vinyl and barely a mark on wax paper backing, Adjust blade to get there, Then put the blade holder back in machine, and use the force of the machine to get there, same results, only cutting the vinyl and barely a mark in wax paper backing.You should only see and feel the very tip of the blade. You only cut the vinyl with the very tip.

    The saga of the PCUT CS1200

    Unless your buying a Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter or a Belkin, which are guaranteed to work with a vinyl cutter, your probably buying a USB to serial cable as cheap as the cheap Chinese chipset in the vinyl cutter. So it makes no difference to help the vinyl cutter run better. Those are the brand names.. If your computer has a serial connection, You could go straight serial, if that cutter does also. Ditch the Artcut and try a different software that has that vinyl cutter listed on it. Vinyl Master has a FREE trial. The baud rate on that cutter should be 9600. You will need the null modem cable that came with that cutter to use with a Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter. Just use a standard length cable. Example . Find one close to you, They sell worldwide. Find the best price. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tripp-Lite-Keyspan-High-Speed-USB-to-Serial-Adapter-PC-Mac-USA-19HS/113688800975?epid=1194060954&hash=item1a78616ecf:g:yBsAAOSwcZ1cNBmS Vinylmaster.com

    Best transfer tape using 651 on small decals

    I had a buyer do almost the same thing. Tried taking the paper transfer tape off before it was ever applied and tried to blame me because the vinyl tore. Big decal also. I asked for pictures, the wax paper backing was still on the decal. Transfer tape, peeled back. A nice checkered decal all ripped up.

    You will also have to tell the buyers that they cannot do wet install with clear plastic transfer tape. That is applied dry only. Paper tape can be applied both ways, wet or dry.

    I always love it when people come for advise, BUT then they don't like the correct answers to the questions, that they get.

    Best transfer tape using 651 on small decals

    I have been shipping decals for 13 years, large 8-16 ft long (average) and I only use paper tape. I do not know who is buying my items or if they have any experience applying vinyl graphics/decals. I have never had a complaint about using paper tape. I use Main brand medium tack. The tape is not clear, but you can see every part of the decal thru it.

    Just because paper tape doesn't look professional, it doesn't mean that it is not the right choice for the job. . I have always used paper tape. Most professional people do.
