    I just noticed the following website http://www.masterwarehouse.com
    sells Roland "compatible blades" extremely cheap. Example....pack of three 45 degree $17.99....pack of three 60 degree $26.99.

    Is anyone using these blades? Are they compatible with an XC-540? Geez, 60 degree blades from my dealer are $30 each and they don't last too long cutting reflective decals with a load of detail in the cut path.

    Any insight on these is immensely appreciated.

    I got a cheap blade twice. The first one broke after two days so I took it back and got a replacement. That one dulled in about a week. I never got the cheap blades again. Just get them from roland. you pay more but they last 20 times as long.

    Buy cheap blades, you give yourself a weeding headache.

    Roland has the best blades. I have used both and will never go back to off-brand blades.

    Just got off the phone with http://www.cleancutblade.com/Home.htm

    Ordered some blades from them in 45 & 60 degrees. Really nice people..great prices and they guarantee their blades to be better than OEM's. Plus I even got a signs101 member discount!

    Although I haven't received them yet...I'm more than confident they'll perform well after speaking with them. A major dealer I know of sells their blades so they must be good. Do this guy a favor and buy some blades direct. He went out-of-his-way to help out this newbie to the digital printing business by answering a ton of questions regarding cutting.

    Thanks Pro Image for the heads up!
