Re: How long would computer mountcutter blades normally last?

Are you using new blades, as I have found that the latest ones I have purchased, don't seem to last very long, might be a bad batch When cutting a full sheets of multiple mounts , I tend to move (in the software ) the array around so not cutting in the same place all the time, which tends to make th...

Re: Do you tape up your package?

I only do it on dark mounts, - well sometimes, I personally do not like it, the main reason is, if the customer somehow manage to break the glass, they tend to try and pull the broken glass out of the front of the frame, and it won't come out because it's taped in, so they show up at the shop with a...

Re: Mdf oak moulding`

If you are doing what's in the photos, which is oak veneer, over pine normally, then laser etched, I have done this in the past, works fine on veneer , but will not work on paper covered MDF, just burn the paper I would think

Re: Gunnar rapido snagging the board

Now looking again at the photos, the outside cut does not look very good either, again I would agree with Abacus, head alignment, the blade is travelling along at an angle to the line of direction, so not cutting right

Re: Gunnar rapido snagging the board

Th OP has not said he has cut the outside of the mounts with the machine, I think Abcus could be right, the head is not aligned, especially as it's only just been bought, so in the move could have miss-aligned, my part-timer miss-aligned my CMC head by accident the other week, two minute job to do, ...
