    We have ran a Summa Cutter for years and I have recently learned no one has ever changed out the Cutting Strip. We have noticed Erratic cutting and after some investigation it turns out its the cutting strip. I have searched online and have not found instructions on how to replace it or where to buy it. any suggestion?
    On a side note whats a good cleaner to use on the rubber grip rollers. I know some chems will kill rubber.

    Step 1: Buy new cutting strip from Airmark.

    Step 2: Remove old cutting strip.

    Step 3: Remove old adhesive from cutting strip channel with citrus adhesive remover.

    Step 4: Prep channel by cleaning solvent out with alcohol.

    Step 5: Peel and stick new cutting strip.

    It is easy, you will want a gel type citrus remover and can modify a Lil’Chisler to fit in the slot to scrape up the goo.

    You may think it's funny but we have perfect cuts and we have been using banner tape for years now.

    Two strips on top of each other make the same thickness as a cutting strip. Stick it down where the strip goes and trim the extra off of the front side. You will never pay $60 for a cutting strip again.

    Interesting, willing to give it a try! Can you link to the banner tape you use for this?

    Thanks!
