    Have ya ever changed out a blade in your plotter..... any plotter, and it not cut any better than the last blade, in fact, almost worse, much worse. Increased the pressure a little, but nothing better. Increased it a little more and then looked at the balde, only to find I had put it in upside down. Getting old sure sucks, especially when you don't use your Walmart Cheaters.

    No on the blade but I did plot about half a roll of cling thinking it was IJ35. Weeded real easy but it didn't mask up to well.

    I've been using Gerber plotters for over 30 years and still have to lay the old blade on the table in the direction it goes to remember which way to put the new blade in. You would think that in all that time I would have learned that by now but nope.

    I have broken the tip of a new blade putting it in the holder before but you got me on the upside down checklist, lol.

    No, but I have cut an entire multi-yard job only to realize that I didn't have the frickin' blade in the plotter.

    No, but I have printed 20 feet of vinyl before I remembered I had talked them into getting banners. That's why I wear diapers.
