  1. Hello all. Has anyone had any experience with cutting down a roll of vinyl. What I need is to cut a 24"x50yd roll of white exterior vinyl down to 9". Have a customer with a newly painted service station canopy (red) and wants two 9" white stripes all the way around. Any advice on cutting it to the 9" would be appreciated.

    Roller Machine

    Sorry, got side racked. Here is the dispenser I made that works great for me.
  3. I have VM pro and the few issues I had, after having to replace a part on my Titain 2, were resolved through US cutter support without any problems. Just my $.02

    Not so much an applicator as a dispenser. Using the big squeegie take all the work out of it.

    I made a manual applicator that has worked really well. Plan to redo after the holidays. Will try tomorrow to get a good shot for you. Really simple and works great.

    A New Venture

    A late welcome from N. Florida. Taking your time and practice, practice. Best of luck to you! These folks are a treasure trove of information. They are awesome.
  7. I know this thread is for criticism and complaints however, I have to relay recent experience. I had some issues with mt Titan 2 (out of stock part needed) so I found 2 P-cut 630's and alike new laserpoint2 on craigs list. The gut bought all from US Cutter. Negotiated price of $150 for all 3. Drove 90 miles and picked up the cutters. Long story short. Contacted US Cutter customer support, since I couldn't seem to get them going. They called me back within about an hour and in no time, had everything up and running. My $.02.... they are GREAT. Shortly after got the titan2 part and now it's running like new . Happy, Happy, Happy!

    New problem

    Actually something a little different than that.
  9. Was having issues with mt Titan 2. Finally got new i/o board and replaced it. Then the carriage control board went out and replaced that and the cutting strip. This past week, I was using it with no issues. Today, a friend asked about cutting some window (anti Biden stuff) decals. Turned on the machine (using vinyl master pro / windows 10) and all I get is a blue screen. Went into he machine to check ALL connections and screen still blue. Anyone have any ideas as to wat the problem ay be? Thinking mother board. Sent a tech suport ticket to USC but will not hear anything until Monday I;m sure.
  10. Well after getting a great deal (I think) on 2 P-cut and a laser point (like brand new) to use until US CUTTER restocks on the Titan 2 O/I board which went bad. I got the laser ppoint set up using Vinyl Master PRO and windows 10. However when I send cut command , it cuts a mirror image. Cannot figure out howto reverse this without ticking mirror command. Can anyone out there tell me what I am doing wrong, PLEASE?

    good find

    I had posted in Titan 2 thread about cutter stopping on me. A friend loaned me a spare (MH-721)that he was not using. In the meantime, I started shopping around for a back up until I can get the O/I board for the Titan. Ran across a 28"P-Cut that works great and come to find out, he actually has 2 of the same models AND a 28" Lasterpoint. ALL 3 with stands, keyspan adapters for $150.00l. Another friend that does a slew of t-shirts, which I don't do, Is buying the sizer stuff 1roll of 12"x50yd black and same in white, along with several short rolls of various colors for $200.00. Happy, Happy, Happy.

    At wits end!

    After my last post, I went back out to the shop and viewed some other posts. I went into the device manager and got the MH-721 set up and working, Did a couple of test cuts and still dancing!!!!!!!! BACK IN BUSINESS!!!! THANKS TO ALL WHO TRIED TO ASSIST.
  13. Last week I( had a problem with my Titan 2 NOT being recognized in VInyl master PRO. w/windows 10 (Previous posts described attempts without good results), US Cutter support took remote access and determined that it was the O/I board on the Titan. A friend in a neighboring town had an older SUMMA D60U. that I could use until part was available from USC. Well..........going through set up for the Summa, getting error message that "unable to open file". At this point , after several failed attempts, I uninstalled VM Pro and re-installed and started again. Same error message. At this point of frustration, I walked away. Today, I ran into an old friend that I had helped when he first started cutting vinyl and he has a MH-721 that I could use. Got all excited, went by, picked up THAT unit and brought it back, hooked it up ,Went through the set up and THAT ONE" NOT DETECTED". I am not the brightest 69 year old when it comes to computers,so.............can someone that is more computer savy PLEASE HELP? The usb cable (2 different ones work fine when connected to printers) and tried usb to serial adapter with same results. PLEASE ADVISE what I am doing wrong
  14. Well.......took the bad ribbon cable to an electronics repairman, since US CUTTER was out of stock. He made me a new one, based on the one that failed. Attached the new cable and cutter still not recognized . Contacted USC support, and they called me back within a few minutes. He took remote access and did some checking and determined that the I/O board is the problem. However ,they are out of stock and looks like mid Feb. before being available for sale. He did state that he was going to check the repair dept. and try to arrange for one to be transferred over to retail and then send me a link to get it ordered. Couldn't really ask for more under the circumstances. Heck, I need some time off anyway
  15. This will hopefully save someone a LOT OF FRUSTRATION down the road,
