  1. 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.

    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.
  9. 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.
  10. The standard pricing formula is L+W divided by 2=$, so, 12+2/2=$7 if you are using a single color.

    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.
  14. In Signblazer it would be, arrange-weld-punch through. Just make sure you use two colors.
  15. You could also try a 60 degree blade for fine detail but follow Skeeter's directions for setting the blade
  16. Just a wild guess. Did you check to see that the carriage did not come out of it's track?

    Can't open SBE file from folder

    Hi all, I'm in the process of setting up a cutting station for my son. I broke out my old MH-721 cutter and installed SBE into a Win 10, 64 bit, computer. Everything works great, but after saving it to a new folder(SBD) in my documents file, it won't open. When I double click on it a window opens up asking "How do you want to open this file?". Signblazer is not listed anywhere. What did I miss? Thanks

    Can't open SBE file from folder

    Thanks Skeeter, that was it. It had to be at least 7 years since I installed SBE in any computer. I guess the memory does get shorter the older we get.

    Arty-RC - batten down the hatches and stay safe

    I agree with us dodging the bullet. Now to take down the shutters, get all the hurricane supplies and lights stowed away until the next one comes along.
