    Need help, I have a plotter with a plastic drum
    and it is building up static, causing the vinyl
    to stick to the drum and making the cuts off.
    suggestion would be greatly appreciated,
    thanks in advanced.:thankyou:

    We use to use christmas tree garland on the back of our screen press to get the static out of whatever we were printing. You might wanna try it on the back of your plotter. Plus it's very cheap price wise.

    I put a ruberized mat down over the carpet where I walk. Static can create some problems with equipment

    Buy the way, Someone is pulling your leg. A damp chamois will take away static.
