How do I know which Roland blade will work?
My vinyl suppliers are both charging $20+ for a single blade, but this site offers them for 3/$10
Is this the right blade for my GX24?

And how long should a blade last anyway? I got my cutter 2 months ago... about 300 to 400 t-shirts. It's starting to cut wobbly. I'm guessing that is a dull blade.

Cemented carbide blade
Knifepoint offset 0.25mm

I'm not sure about the blade you are talking about here,but I want to tell you about a blade sold by Specialty Graphics. The blade is called "Clean Cut" and I have heard they last a long time. I remeber talking to a guy that cuts 100's of yards of vinyl per week and his blade was still going strong 2 yrs. after purchase. I have also bought blades on EBAY that have lasted me 6 mos. before being changed.I hope this helps. .... JB

Thanks,
I saw someone else mention the CleanCut blades, but not who the supplier was. I will check and see if I can get them in Canada.

I decided to order directly from the manufacturer. Beacon voiced concerns that they could get hung up at customs.
