So as most of you guys know already Im not a big brand name shop. I'm more of a in home type of shop and I enjoy the heck out of this field of work. Taught myself when i was struggling with money in college and did pretty well.(paid my titan off & some). Now full time in a union I still want to continue my vinyl. I won't lie i stopped for a while ... about a year or so. Well anyway I decided on the new Graphtech CE Lite 50 - 20". I wanted to upgrade from my 4 year old titan. (Some might think that was a stupid Idea because its smaller) but I wanted a graphtech but just starting up again after a year i wanted to keep my cost low. plus i really only do stickers & shirts nothing more then 20" is ever needed for me as of now. I plan on writing up a nice review on it and letting you guys know how it preforms with the MacBook pro i use. if anyone already has some info on this graphtech i would love to hear your reviews on it or if you don't have it by looking at the specs what do you think. My titan struggles sometimes on detailed work now it could be me messing something up but i heard its because the motor and this graphtech has a servo which i hear is a step up and makes detailed work more easy. ... Thanks for taking the time to read this & hope to hear back from some of you guys! - Mike
Hey guys, I'm trying my hand out at sandblasting some stone. I've got access to some basic sandblast equipment and plenty of stone to practice on. I'm using the Hartco 930. My question is how you guys apply the stencil. Do you just apply the stencil straight to the stone and then weed it once it's on there? Or do you weed the stencil like it was regular vinyl and then add transfer paper to get it onto the stone. The stones I'm using aren't smooth polished surfaces if that makes a difference. They are rough. The design I'm practicing with is just some basic shapes. No small detailed intricacies or letters or anything. I played with it and got my cutter to cut the stencil great. Any tips for the rest would be awesome. Thanks guys!
Hello everyone. I just purchased a GraphTech CE5000-60 from USCutter. Extremely excited as I bought the copam 2500 first and was extremely unsatisfied with its quality and overall design So I traded that in on the GraphTech. Question is, will "Poll size" and "Show me" in Flexisign play well with the Graphtech? I'm used to an older Summa cutter and was told GraphTech is the closest thing to Summa without spending several thousand dollars. Also, how well does it cut reflectives and thicker materials? I had a local cutter dealer tell me they were not good for it but I just can't believe 300 grams of pressure wouldn't be enough to cut reflectives and other thick materials. What say you?
