    Graphtec fc8000-100

    Probably not the machine. If it is still cutting thru, then you have too much blade exposed out of the blade holder. Try a different cutting software and see what happens. Make sure that you haven't put scratches or gouges in your cutting strip.

    So what do you have the blade offset at? Look at your cutter as well as Flexi.

    I wondered that myself. And it is going to get worse.

    Flexi Product manager making weird corners

    I have never seen cuts like that. But Flexi 8 is not compatible with Windows 10. It is only for XP and older Windows. I still cut on XP computers. Does the Flexi8 have a USB dongle? Like a flash drive that goes into your USB port? I run all of my features, from the Graphtec Cutting Contoller. Force, Speed etc. Download Signblazer and try it. The cutter is listed on it. Or buy some new software. http://www.uscuttersupport.com/downloads/Software/SignBlazer/

    Graphtec CE5000-40

    Look at the part number on it and see if you can search online for one. You can also post it here. Or take photos of the numbers and post here. Make sure it really is the power supply. It could also be a broken cable. Or mainboard. Here is the service manual. http://www.graphteccorp.com/support/manuals/CE5000/CE5000-UM-251 (09-9370).pdf

    What do you mean it doesn't start? Do you mean it doesn't power on? If so, try a different power cord.

    Vinyl tracking

    I wouldn't even try and run all 50 of those at 1 time. The specs say the max cutting length is 144" for the SC2 cutter. Value cutters have a limited memory. I know the memory has been upgraded, but nothing like that.

    How big are they?

    Vinyl tracking

    I also make sure that my pinch rollers are the exact same distance from the edge of the vinyl. Even use a tape measure if you have to. I put my pinch rollers about 1 1/4" from edge. Roller marks will not hurt, they come out when you apply. Graphtecs have a prefeed feature on them, The roller marks help with the tracking. Try prefeeding your vinyl and back.

    Vinyl tracking

    Never be pulling from the roll while cutting. Always have enough vinyl slack to do the order. You may have your blade too far out of the blade holder, with will cause the vinyl to shift. This is how to set your blade depth correctly. Run the cutter slow until you learn it. Vinyl has to be straight to stay straight while traveling. I have a Graphtec, but I still run it slow. 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 fell the blade tip out of the blade holder. A lot of the times when a cutter stops, it is static from the vinyl. Cutter must be grounded to the stand. Spray Static Guard type sprays, use dryer sheets on the cutter and inside the roll. Run humidifier. Also the MH cutters have a very limited memory. The value cutters do have a cheap Chinese chip set. We tell buyers to put it on a serial cable or a Tripp-Lite Keyspan Adpater. That is the brand name Tripp-LIte.

    Make sure you are selecting the item. Go up to HELP at the top of your layout screen. Maybe reinstall it. Contact Vinyl Master, they are your tech support. Looking at the HELP tutorial, isn't that under Vector Effects? I don't use Vinyl Master, just reading.

    Vinyl Master can be upgraded to have more features in it. Vinyl Master Cut is the basic version. You can also design in Inkscape.org which is FREE. Save as an .eps Then import into Vinyl Master. You could also try Free Signblazer, which is design and cut. But it has not been upgraded for years. Owner passed away.

    Yes, My FC can be changed front or back. but the vinyl can actually be fed front to back. The grit rollers do go that direction. It has front roll/rear roll for that purpose.

    I had looked this cutter up when I said that. And it looks like an MH cutter. I had looked at the VEVOR website, that I had searched for. when I stated that. Links above. But if you look at the Name on the cutter, it says SEIKI
