    Those search results mostly are YOU saying it's like the MH.

    The model posted above is certainly NOT at the level of the MH, and in various ways it is much more like the LP3.

     

     

    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

    No catch-basket and the rollers are not pre-spaced, which is how the LP3 is configured.  (Also, the blade holder is on the left side of carriage, LP3 on the right)

    Apples to oranges.

    Macintosh to  Red Delicious     Includes: Vinyl Cutter / Plotter Cutter Stand Media Catch Basket Sign Master Cut or Sign Master Pro Dust Cover USB and Power Cord 

    It is showing the catch basket.  Nope it has a long grit roller, BUT it is not costing as much as the LP3

    The USCUTTER website shows Zero.

    I called Sales and they say Zero.

    No timeline given for re-stock.

     

    Can you show the link to Amazon's offering?

    (A friend of mine wants a 34" cutter with defined positions for the grit rollers, along with the included media basket, which the LP3 has, but the SC and MH don't)

     

     

    Says 1 in stock.   It says 28"

  4. This is how to correctly set the the blade depth.  It's less blade, more force.

    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. 


  5. I run 50 yard rolls, so never have the problem with rear sensor.  Even if I run scraps on roll.   Yes,  I just use it manually, as I am standing there and done with the order.  Sometimes you have to move your vinyl down a little, or you will cut the design,  and I try to save vinyl by watching where I cut it off at. 

    I wiggled my USB cable and the cutter took off, so I knew it was broken. 


  6. Only time I ever had my cutter stop in the middle of cutting was a broken USB cable  and a USB cable too long.  Most sensors would give an error code.   I never use the cross cutting after cutting,  while machine on.   I have the cutter off and push down on the cutter and slide across to cut off.  

    I turned the media sensor and the pinch roller sensors off on day 1.

    Yea I knew it wasnt being updated.  I think I may have had it set on hp gl inches.  What other cutting software is recommended.  I usually do all my design work in corel and with the old cutter could just do it from corel.  Any idea why vinyl master would make it throw the error 11 code though?

    Just make sure you go to MENU>NEXT>NEXT>Interface>COMMAND> and make sure it is on HP-GL

    Graphtec has Graphtec software, with Plugs ins for Corel.   I don't use them  I use Flexi software,  But they are there  Graphtec site under software. For the FC7000


  8. I don't see how the SC is out of your budget.  Why do you think you need a 34" cutter?    Going to the 28" SC is only $46 more/with shipping.  The vinyl they are including in the package, is not good vinyl.  30 ft of transfers tape,  is not much and you get a MUCH better vinyl cutter for $46.  Most times packages/bundles are not great deals. Only good for the seller.  That's my opinion.

    Also for a limited time.  if you do want a really big cutter 53"  It is on sale for $419.  Save $200.

  9. How much is your budget?   You can get a Liyu/SC vinyl cutter over there. reasonable.   Your cutter is about the same style as the MH,  We tell buyers not to buy the MH, but to purchase higher.  Next level up here is the SC vinyl cutter.   You can buy in UK.   Best cutters are servo cutters.  This is still a stepper.
