I am trying to cut 10' long sign for store window. I have broken the sign into small pieces to cut. But when it's cutting, the vinyl gets iff track---going crooked and messing up the long piece of vinyl. Is there a maximum length that can/should be cut so as to keep vinyl tracking straight? Is there a way to slow the speed down on a gx-24? Idk if that would help of not? Any ideas?

It is difficult to get a GX24 to track that distance.
First, roll out all the vinyl you need to the front being cognizant of the movement to the right and left. As the vinyl walks, you will need to release the vinyl and rotate it slightly. Do this repeatedly over the distance you need until the vinyl moves left / right no more than about ±1/2". Make sure your decal allows for the ±1/2" of movement so if you are using 24" wide vinyl, don't use more than about 22" of the width.

You should be able to slow down the speed which will improve the tracking. For more tips on improving the tracking of the cutter see this posting:
