    I use mostly monument sandblast stencil, so I really don't really don't know the capabilities of some vinyl. The cheap vinyl I do use (for light etching) doesn't stay stuck that hard to the backer.

    I could weed and accidentally take out letters that fast all the time. Now show how he does it without losing any letters. Even if it's fast he still lost text and will have to re cut and place the letter in it's place. Making it even slower.

    Anchor 116 / 117 weeds extremely easy if it's cut deep enough. Harco 310 is a little tricky for 1/2 inch letters...especially "M" & "N".
