jimmyespinosa posted a topic in General discussionHi everyone... Sooo yesterday I bought a new Roland 60° blade for reflective vinyl cutting. First of all, I had only used 45 deg blades before; second of all, this new blade comes with some kind of retaining ring WHICH the girl from the store told me NOT TO REMOVE. Here is a picture I found online of the same blade: ZEC-U3100 Note: I have an MH721 The OTHER thing is that, no matter how I adjust the blade offset, it just keeps making awful cuts, incomplete and rippled in some parts. I've tried changing pressure, speed and everything else and it doesn't work; nevertheless, my old 45 deg blade works just fine! Now look... I kinda figured out that the blade isn't rotating 100% freely inside the blade holder, it kinda 'rubs' the housing's little hole where the tip comes out. I think that drilling a SLIGHTLY bigger hole in the housing could solve the problem, but I don't know if it might affect something else. I also tried removing the retaining ring and there were the same results. PLEASE HELP I don't really think this is normal and that blade cost me around 40 dollars here in Mexico and I can't return it to the store.
