    Hi!

    I'm going to buy a graphtec FC8000 30" as an addition to my shop.

    I will be using it to do some kiss cutting and die cutting (performation cut).

    My vp-540 and sp-300v can do this but graphtec does it better from what I saw.

    I just wanted to know what blade and cutting force do you suggest me to do a perforation cut to:

    3mil vinyl + 3mil lamination (all from oracal)

    thank you!

    The standard CB09U blade will do it just fine.

    probably 50 miles of cuts or more on the same blade ive had since new that came with it. i have a pack of 10 more just sitting. the blade it comes with IF SET properly will work just fine.
