    Back when I did the tech support for SSK Sign Supply I had this happen twice on Graphtec machines with customers. The first time I was on the phone with the customer and Graphtec for about 3 hours till we realized all it needed was some 3-in-1 oil. The same thing fixed the 2nd.

    Here is a way to tell if it needs oiled. Push the plunger down by hand and if it feels tight then remove the blade holder cover and oil the part on the left that is between the two rollers (you will be able to see what part) and that should fix you up. Its just not moving at first because it is stuck at first but once it gets free cuts fine. Same thing also happened to a CE-5000-60 we have here in KY as a demo unit.

    Hope this helps.

    I told you those SSK techs are good......no matter who they work for. Nice going Todd......you ,Mark and Jeremy should know that you have not only helped many, but did it in a friendship type way.
