Gunnar Rapido

Hi everyone,

I've just purchased a 2nd hand Rapido, I've been playing around with it for the last few days and tried to cut a V groove yesterday, I followed the instructional video I found online but when I pressed cut, a dialogue box came up saying 'Insert V groove blade', does anyone know what a V groove blade is? Is it a special holder with a special blade or is it just a normal holder with a blade set to a depth required for the V groove? Sounds a bit daft I know, but I can't find any reference to it on the Interweb, and I don't want to risk breaking the machine when I've only just got it :sweating:
Cheers everyone and a Merry Christmas :SD

Whilst I'm sure Sarah would love a trip to the Dordogne, its not her territory :(

As Mark is in France he should contact the Gunnar distributor there who is:-

Jean Luc Du Pont < who speaks perfect English if its needed

Tel 01 44 06 73 90
I have visited distributors and framers in 89 countries - no two are the same.
