I have a US Cutter MH 721 and this is the first time I have cut a 12' long sticker. Got first 3 cut no problem now the last one keeps tracking off. ANY IDEAS

are you pulling 12ft of vinyl free from the roll before you are cutting it? Like 12 ft of slack...The cutter should never be pulling directly from the roll when cutting... You can only line it up straight and keep prefeeding until it is straight and lined up. It takes practice.

I am giving it 12' of slack when I set it up. I have lined it up stright and prefeed it. It does not go off the same every time. Do the pinch roller preload have any thing to do with this?

yes, pinch rollers are involved with the vinyl feeding straight. As well as the grit rollers on the bottom.
