    I came across a used Roland Camm Pro 1 36" cutter for $800. Is this a decent deal? I have inquired as to how old it is and how much it has been used and am waiting for a response. I want to jump on it, but I just don't know! I am running a cheapo machine and pray everytime I send a project over that it will complete it.

    BTW, I do mostly indoor decorator type vinyl with the occasional coroplast sign, window decal, or other odd job. What machine would be ideal for this if I were to get a new one? I am saving my money right now...

    Thanks!

    It's a great deal if in fact the machine is in great condition.

    A new 24" is roughly $2200.00 with the stand.

    Jump on that deal

    I just sold a Graphtec 30" for $1200 and the people were glad to have it. Mine had more use on it and was about four years old. As long as it is in good shape it is a very good deal. Run...don't walk.

    I think it sounds like a great deal, you cant get much for that price and it is a name brand machine, good luck/chopper

    I did get it. I was lucky, there were 4 others wanting it. I was just there first with cash.

    It looks great. I love it so far, and I only saw him do a demo! It is SO much cooler than the piece of junk I am running right now. It is amazing how many more features there are on it, how much quieter it is, how smooth it is... I can go on and on.

    So now I have an extra junk machine. Not quite sure what to do with it, as I only bought it for $400 on ebay not 6 months ago (yeah, it is one of those). It has worked okay and has allowed me to get into the business enough to know I want to continue. I would have never known what a good deal this Roland is without going down the paths I have gone, so I am happy.

    I am sure I will be asking for help because I have no manual or info for it.

    Thanks for encouraging me to get it.

    I've been using a chinese cutter for 3 years now and it started giving me problems recently. So I just started using my versacamm for cutting vinyl. What a friggin' difference.! Speed, accuracy..cool, cool, cool.
    But I dont want to wear out the sp300 either. Looking at a graphtec CE 3000 for vinyl cutting.
    My next move I think.

    I guess I'm just lazy. I like the idea of my printer being loaded with print/cut material..and when I want to just cut vinyl I can switch the colored rolls in the 24 inch machine. That's been working for me.
    But you could be getting good endorsement $ from Roland?
    LOL

    Rolands Rock. I have to agree with you Ken, I would definitely get another cutter instead of using the Versacamm for exclusive cutting.
