    The bullet has been bitten and I'm the proud father of a Roland SP300. It is used but very gently (less than 3 hours). Everything seems to run swimmingly with the exception of the sheet cut function. The blade travels to the far left, dips then returns without cutting anything.

    I went against my normal instincts and read the instructions but to no avail. I'm doing everything it says to do.

    What am I missing?

    All I can offer is to ensure that there is a cut-off blade in there.

    Yup.

    Upon further inspection, I can see how it operates. The carriage rides far left to a stopper that pushes the blade toggle down. It's not pushing it far enough to "catch" the blade in the down position. It returns home without the blade down.

    I don't see a tensioner or anything that would change this.

    Bump.

    Printing and contour cutting like a dream.

    Still no sheet cut.
