Dear All,

Has anyone here used the Sign Vinyl Drag Knife Bit from Widget Works? If so what are your Gadget knife settings entries for the 45 Deg and 60 Deg blade?

I've used it on my ShopBot to cut paper and vinyl. I do not use the gadget. I create the vectors and use a standard profile toolpath "machine on vector". Just follow the instructions for setup that comes with the knife. A little experimentation with feed rate will be necessary.

I have found that the 45 degree blade works best for both paper and vinyl. I also use a vacuum hold down and have created some outstanding vinyl graphics for my Harley.
