    Hello,, I am having some difficulty with my gx 24 roland. I use to have the cutting force at 120 and sometimes 130 but now I have been having to go as high as 160.on the force. Now I changed the blade and it is still the same thing. Also when it cuts the circle and the square on the test,,it is a little ruff in the corners of the square when weeding it out. The vinyl is the same as I always use. My Machine is about 5 years old but has not been used a great deal.
    Any ideas? Thanks You ,,,Paul

    at 120-160, youre way to high for a new blade. new blade i start at 60-70, test cut from there till i get a complete and clean cut. sometimes to much force is as bad as not enough.
    next feel the cutting stripe. if its cut up then you dont have a flat surface against the backing paper.

    Since the OP is talking about vinyl, I would agree with you, however, 120 or a little more isn't too much for a new blade depending on what you are cutting. When I cut twill for applique work, even on a new blade I'm at 120-130.

    That would be my first guess right there.
