    Cutter peeling up vinyl while cutting

    Sorry to post on such on old thread-- but @lizzylou's suggestion was spot on for me. I'm working with an MH cutter, had major peeling when cutting small artifacts (fonts in this case) on Oracal 651. Backing off on the "force" did it for me. I had started at the default 500 grams, ended up at 20 grams, running at about 100 for the speed. Also, bonus with the lessened force is that the machine runs much quieter, and still cuts just as well. Thanks @lizzylou

    thankfully, no canoe club has done that here ... and hopefully won't.

  10. I can't find a service manual for the CE6000. but maybe the service manual for the CE5000 might get you there. http://www.graphteccorp.com/support/manuals/CE5000/CE5000-UM-251 (09-9370).pdf

    ORACAL 651 15" Vinyl now comes unpunched.

    Main tape is 15" That is all I have used for many years. Some of the Rtape is 15" also. I have an Ebay seller that I have bought from for years. I use Main medium tack paper tape. https://www.uscutter.com/Main-Tape-GXP750-PerfecTear-Plus-Medium-Tack-Transfer-Tape

    You could pin stripe or add gold leaf to outriggers . . . .hmmmmm
  13. Hi, this post had been for many years but I think I might shared my two cents on the ARMS. I facing the same problem on and off, sometime it would read but sometime it won't. Oh, btw I am using CE6000-60 series. The only thing that I would do when the cutter wouldn't read my registration marks, I will find a piece of clothes and try to clean the censor. Then it will work, but 1 question is, how do we take the censor out to clean it thoroughly. Thanks, just my 2 cents

    Great! Now they just need to increase the width of their app tape to match .... and i would need my local shop here to carry the vinyl and wider app tape
  15. typically people just post the file to the forum thread, so that many volunteers can take a stab at problem solving it. if you feel more comfortable just sending it to me, that works too - just click on my profile name, then click Message. you can attach files and shot me a message at the same time. no one else will see the communication or attachment.

    I am looking for this font on the wood. Thank you, Christi
  20. That is great news. Now you can get the whole 15" wide cuttable area. And it is cheaper than the Punched version. Maybe others noticed it, but I just saw it in an email from USCutter. https://www.uscutter.com/ORACAL-651-Vinyl-15x10-Yard-Non-Punched https://www.uscutter.com/ORACAL-651-Vinyl-15x50-Yard-Non-Punched

    Here's an old Indy Car from the 70's that my uncle and cousin painted and stripped, and another from 1980. That's my Uncle on the far right & his son in the cowboy hat. I used to love watching them paint and the smell of turps and paint, oh..and a few beers and shots were consumed while doing so. My cousin is still doing it at the ripe young age of 76. And all was done freehand, no masking tapes involved

    Man, that's real dang close. A few curved edges here or there. Nothing I can't straighten though. Much appreciated!

    Now is cutting message

    Problem Solved. I have no idea how it happened but somehow the model of my cutter got changed in my software.Set it to the right one and all is good
  26. Mz Skeeter is asking because while what you are doing may be working for you, it is not the intended use of the cutter and will ruin the cutting strip making future cuts not as clean. Have you tried a different program for printing? From this statement, it sounds to me like it is a software problem and you may not be able to use Graphtec Studio to print with your printer. What printer are you using?

    I watch every week, love the striping and I have used my plotter to do a mask to sandblast the back of mirrors and then paint part and gold leaf part. Last week nub said he liked the one I did for my daughters wedding

    I would never even attempt this kind of stuff, but I love watching it! My great uncle was a sign painter in Iowa....barns, berma-shave, store windows, fire trucks, you name it. A canvas bag of paints and a leather roll of brushes. As a kid I was mesmerized by the stuff he could do by hand. Heck, I still am!
