Set up/instructions...

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I know there is this link (below)  that I've found in searching the forum, is there ANY other resource I should look at, view, read, watch that would help me with things like 

how to move the rollers and cutter settings for certain materials, things of this nature. I'm trying do my best to prepare and learn before delving direct into the machine (thank you in advance)!

Cutter settings for different materials are determined by setting your blade depth, which is posted hundreds of times on here.  Blade depth determines your force settings.  Run your machine slow until you learn your machine. 

How to set your blade depth. 

To start with, you should set your blade depth correctly, by taking the blade holder out of the machine, and firmly cut across a piece of scrap vinyl, you will be cutting. You should only be cutting the vinyl and barely a mark on wax paper backing, Adjust blade to get there, Then put the blade holder back in machine, and use the force of the machine to get there, same results, only cutting the vinyl and barely a mark in wax paper backing. You should just barely see and feel the blade tip out of your blade holder. Vinyl is only a few mil thick, you only cut with the very tip of the blade.  Use the TEST feature on your cutter.  That is what it is for.
