    MH Contour mod

    Working with an MH cutter will give you a very good learning experience. When I got mine I learned how to tweak it to cut smaller detailed work. I made enough to upgrade to a Graphtec cutter. I also used it for portable cutting for a few years after I got my Graphtec

    A little side note. If you're making the boards for gifts for people, do what I do for various things. I ask the person that I am making the gift for if they have a favorite saying, picture, their children's drawing, favorite scene, etc. and use that on the project. You'll have a friend for life.

    How will this cut?

    What I have done, in SBE, on long cuts is uncheck the weed box and set the machine to limit the movement of the vinyl for the cut. This way it will cut each graphic one by one down the line.

    No, and I didn't have the heart to ask for my senior discount.

    Today's score

    A few weeks ago my wife's old desktop quit working. Thankfully, I keep up with our backups. After many tests I determined that the mother board was bad. I spent the next weeks shopping around for another unit with what she wanted for the right price. Today, during our weekly travels, we stopped by a local Thrift Store. They were having a huge sale so we started looking around. The first room I went in had a computer in it's original box, with a keypad and mouse. When I asked them if it worked I was told that if it was in a box, it was not tested. I took a gamble and bought it. Long story short, when I got home I hooked it up and it worked. It was not even password protected. It's an HP, Quad-core, 1TB hard drive, 6GB Ram, Light scribe DVD, and Windows 7 that was upgraded to Windows 10. Here's the kicker.The price sticker was $10.00. With the sale discount, they told me it would cost, with sales tax, $2.68. Yes, two dollars and sixty eight cents. Gotta love those Thrift Stores
