    cutting small letters

    Change to a 60 degree blade and cut at the slowest speed possible. You will still have to fine tune your blade depth and pressure. When I started, long ago, after playing with the settings on my MH-365 I was able to get better smaller cuts. Be patient grasshopper. Also, different vinyls will cut differently.
  2. You can also give the edge of the vinyl a slight bend upward before cutting.

    I’m in test mode

    It looks like there is a problem with the ink refill in the pen. The ink line is skipping. Try changing your refill.

    Vinyl roll holder (spare parts?)

    US Cutter might have one. If not, grab a piece of plexiglass or plywood and cut yourself a new part.

    VENT... Sign Stolen!

    Don't you wish you could find the thieves and shove the sign where the sun doesn't shine.

    Best Wishes

    We were just put on "Stay at Home", State wide, starting tomorrow at midnight. No telling how long it will last.
  9. The slower the cut, the better the cut. The only time I speed up my cutter is when cutting 5" and larger block letters and larger solid shapes.

    So how small can a vinyl cutter cut?

    Keep in mind that the brand and type of vinyl you are cutting will also give you different results.

    Increase the size of your weed box.

    Add a second color to the symbol, and use Punch Through.

    sc2 display blinking won't power on

    Just a note to all. As like your computer and other electronics, we all should have a back-up power supply/surge protector connected to all of them. Mine has saved me numerous times in the past as I was cutting vinyl and on sublimation projects. My TV's have them also so when there is a momentary power outage I don't have to wait forever for my program to resume without missing any of the action.They are will worth the investment.

    sc2 display blinking won't power on

    Have you unplugged the power cord for 30 seconds like they till you to do with other electric devices that suddenly act up?

    Looking for a 145 jet

    I've been searching the web all afternoon looking for a decent line drawing of a British Midland 145 jet front view. I found a few but after vectoring them they looked like crap. Thanks in advance.
  17. I really don't have a formula for extra colors. I usually ad a little more $ depending on how much vinyl and time is involved and how good a customer they are.
  18. The standard pricing formula is L+W divided by 2=$, so, 12+2/2=$7 if you are using a single color.

    I turned off the self cleaning option the first week that I had my Ricoh SG3110dn.

    I think I'm cutting too deep...

    look up the posts made by MZ Skeeter for the proper way to set a blade. Works every time.
  22. In Signblazer it would be, arrange-weld-punch through. Just make sure you use two colors.
  23. You could also try a 60 degree blade for fine detail but follow Skeeter's directions for setting the blade
  24. Just a wild guess. Did you check to see that the carriage did not come out of it's track?
