    The city has a warehouse that once a month it sells things from different departments. Today their signage department sold one of their plotters and I snatched it up.

    It's a Graphtec FC7000 64" cutting plotter. Everything works fine on it, came with those bag things that the vinyl falls into I guess to keep it off the floor and clean.

    How much did I paid? A huge $50, yep that's it. I am not a fan of Graphtec so I probably will end up reselling it by the end of the year.

    I want to make sure everything works properly and use it a little. I don't have a blade holder so I need to get that, but the pen test was flawless. It came out of the city sign shop, they were cutting mostly diamond grade reflective and all on it, so I know it was kept in good shape.But I am sure I'll be selling it for around that price.

    So the plotter works fine, bought a bunch of brand new blades, blade holder and putting in a new cutting strip on it. It's very different than my Roland but a lot stronger cut, it actually cut through car magnets. It has the ARMS for contour cutting, etc. It can cut directly from Corel Draw, tested that. Just not my kind of plotter, I am going to use the money to put towards something else. Anyone want to give me a decent offer on it? Not going to take lowball offers as I've put a couple hundred bucks in it and did a lot of testing. But also don't expect high offers either.
