    When mine does that it means that the sprockets need the boogers scraped off, or that the bar that the cutter head rides on needs oiled, or that there is a piece of a sticker stuck on the bar that the back end of the cutter head rides on.
    ...or you need more weight.
    Love....Jill

    Sometimes this happens to me on my graphtec. It usually happens when I use a new blade. It cuts the backing paper (usually too much so it leaves some on the vinyl when you pull the release liner) but yet the vinyl doesn't weed well. Try as I might, not matter what settings I use it does this. I usually have to deal and run a couple rolls through it until it dulls a little then its fine. Its the weirdest thing!

    Is there any vinyl stuck to the blade or maybe you need a new blade holder

    no nothing is open just a zip car file
    I did change the blade holder new blade and cut strip and its still same problem, if I weed from left to right it seems to lift better
    right to left into the open holes and its a problem
    almost seems like parts of the words cut deeper than other
    oh ya we orderd a new print head $900 and I installed that did the calibration with no change if the vinyl sits for a few days it shrinks and weeds awsome but thanks for all the great ideas I have tryed them all

    Have you tried to click the double cut box. Keep your same settings and put the double cut on. I had the same problem you are having and when i use double cut i have no problems weeding after that.

    Another thing you may want to try is changing your cut settings inside the cutter itself. I found that does help too.
