We only use Clean Cut 60 degree blades and for the tougher glitter use 3 passes, 2 on others.
Blade holders are very often overlooked. If your cuts are not completing and you have a new blade (and sure your settings are correct) then YES a new blade holder will most likely be the issue. They are a wear item and do need to be replaced.I'm having issues cutting certain colors of Siser Glitter on both of my GCC cutters - Puma III and Jaguar IV.
My issues right now are mainly with white and neon pink glitter - they seem to be more gummy than the others. It's almost as if the blade is lifting and not cutting lines of text completely - or curves on script letters are not being completely cut. I've tried 45 and 60 degree blades, changed the offset up and down, changed the force up and down and I just can't get it right. I know it has to be something with the cutters because I cut the vinyl on my Silhouette and it was smooth and wonderful, but I don't have time to cut everything I need on the Silhouette!
I'm chatting with Stahl's customer support and they are suggesting a blade holder replacement. Anyone have similar issues? Suggestions?
A 60° blade is not "special" they cost the same amount and are for cutting fine detail as well as a few other things.Adjust the blade like any other vinyl & test cut until right . And you need to increase the blade depth. You don't need a special blade, a regular 45° should be fine.
