i have another spiral blade portrait ive been pickin away at for some time now. but kept putting it up as i was having problems with the clamps holding tbe blades. blades kept poppin out of bottom clamp. blades were also breaking like crazy. difficult cutting,too. i couldnt figure out tbe problem.
welp, i wanted to do grumpy cat today so figgered id trudge through and see if maybe i can figure out tbe problem with my excaliber. about halfway tbrough scrolling grumpy cats,i stopped for a minute then it hit me:check to see if upper arm js parallel with the table.
NOPE. 1/4” off! got that straight and i was in heaven!! blades clamped right up and she was cutting awesome! cut my time waaaaay down!

think ill be breaking out the other portrait tomorrow.

Those are really nice Tom. I know what you mean about tools being a little and causing all sorts of problems.

Those are very cool. I love the look on the cat’s face.
