    etched wine bottle

    combining two of my hobbies - homemade wine and etching - I sand-etched the label for the batch of wine nearly ready to bottle to give to a friend
  2. My wife likes my new technique because I'm dusting the furniture as I go (grin) My monitor has never been cleaner
  3. Hi all, I'm new to this and been making a few decals on white vinyl and found it very difficult to see the cut lines to weed. I had a piece of ash fall from a cigarette onto the vinyl and as I was wiping it away found it made the lines stand out easier for me to see where to weed. So now I just stick the tip of my finger into the ashtray and gently wipe it across the entire pattern to make the lines stand out and now I can weed without needing a bright light and magnifying lens. I don't see that it leaves the edges dirty or fouled in any way, just as clean as without. I even tried a bit of dust from the table and that works just as well. Hope this tip helps someone with eyes as poor as mine see the lines better.

    MH Manual Request

    I also tried to download the MH721 manual from the support site and it seems to be corrupted/unable to open. Could I request a copy of that PDF also please?
  5. Hi everyone, I got into this because I saw a MF721 for sale in an auction and bid on it, not knowing anything about vinyl cutters or such, thought if I won it for cheap price it would be fun to play with. my surprise when I won! Now what do I do with this? I've read a few post here so far and don't plan to start a business or anything, but just more of a hobby to make mask for sand-etching, maybe a few decals for my wife's RV, you know, stuff like that. I come from an Engineering background with strong skills in graphics and CAD, I'm already familiar with Corel and many other graphics programs, and looking forward to using those skill in a new medium.
