Default Expert 24LX How to cut paper, cardstock, cardboard.

I've seen a video of the GCC cutters cutting an image out of cardboard using an ad-don tray table and adhesive but still have a couple of questions.
1. Does the tray table add-on require you to be using the GCC stand? Currently our cutter sits on a table and want to make sure the tray can still attach.
2. Does it require a special cutting blade? If so, any idea which one?
3. The video I watched used an adhesive to hold the cardboard in place while cutting. If I want to cut paper, will the adhesive be too strong to remove the paper afterwards?

Also if you're currently have this setup, any tips/tricks would be appreciated.

You don't need the stand to use the add on table. You need to remove the front and rear platens (easy, just a few screws) and fix the tables in there place. You would also need a cutting mat like the ones sold for cameos, a well used one that has pretty much lost it's stickyness is best for paper, even then thin paper would be a pain to remove, a small paint scraper might be useful to help remove.

Is this the video you saw.

That would be the one. Thanks for the reply.
I've just had the worst experience with my supplier, they kept telling me that the tray table should of come with my cutter when I purchased it in the box. No matter what I said, they were adamant. When I showed them the email I received from GCC saying it's an add-on and not included and a link to one of their competitors that was selling it as an add-on and an image of the GCC card that came with my cutter that listed the contents, they then finally agreed and say it's an add-on.. eeeesh.

I think I'll be looking for a new Canadian supplier.
