Thank you Loretta. Thank you so muchYou're missing something. The blade just floats around inside so it doesn't matter whether it's facing forward or backward. As soon as it starts moving it will turn to the correct position.
Now put it in the holder and turn the knob until the blade is poking out the end. Now place that on a sheet of vinyl and make a square or circle or some shape. Remove the shape. You will have the perfect depth for cutting your vinyl when you can cut through the colored part and not cut the backing under it.
Now put the blade holder in the machine and make sure it is firmly in place before tightening it in. If you are cutting away and go to weed and nothing is cut, you didn't have the blade firmly in place. Been there done that.. I thought either the computer or cutter had gone bad!
There should be instructions on the installation CD or online.
You're welcome. I've had my cutter for about 4 years now and I still don't know all the ins and outs. Wish I could figure out contour cutting.Thank you Loretta. Thank you so much
Hi Loretta,You're welcome. I've had my cutter for about 4 years now and I still don't know all the ins and outs. Wish I could figure out contour cutting.
I have the CE-5000-60 For new blades go to: clean cut blade. They are made to fit your machine and are better than OEM blades. Not to mention a lot lower in price.
