Regular replacement of vinyl cutter blades will keep your vinyl cutter going strong and cutting smoothly and quickly. Whether your vinyl cutter is an old faithful or brand new get your vinyl cutter blades and blade holders here. Most new vinyl cutter owners improperly install the blade with too much of it protruding from the holder. Set it so that you can barely see the tip. Now install the blade holder in the tool carriage, adjust the cutter’s force setting, and perform a test cut. Tweak the cutting force until you get the correct depth.
The only time you need more blade tip exposed is when you’re cutting very thick material like heat transfer flock or sandblast stencil film. Otherwise, use the ‘less is more’ rule.
