Much cheaper blade holder. Anyone tried it?

    We have three Graphtec plotters that need some TLC - new blade holders, cut strips and blades.

    I was a little surprised at how much a new OEM blue top blade holder costs($105 each). If I just needed one, it wouldn't be that big of deal but since I'm buying three, I'm looking around to see what the alternatives are.

    I found this one:

    http://www.specialty-graphics.com/s..._holder.html?gclid=CInm9tWplbQCFSXNOgod5gUAYQ

    And I'm wondering if anyone else has tried it? At 60% less, it represents quite a savings. It actually even looks BETTER than the plastic version from Graphtec.

    Also - any affordable work arounds on cut strips? We've got a FC5100-75, FC5100-150 and FC8000-160.

    I have one like this I bought from ebay in the UK, looks exactly the same, very well made and works a treat, no complaints at all. It was about the same price as the one in the link.
    regards
