Look at that awful seam!...

I agree, this is nice stuff Muts! :wink: Allow me to ask, where did you learn to use your DC or is what you know all self-taught?

I wished I could at least have an 8-hour day long class of "Summa D75-R 101" taught by a Summa tech. I'm teaching myself to use my cutter (as probably 99% of owners) but I know there are things I do not know about this cutter and don't know that I should be asking those things. I am using my manual as well (the one from the Belgium site given it contains much more info than the printed one). But, there are some setting details in the manual that are confusing to understand.

The most frustrating thing I'm finding is not knowing general expectations and things that will be encountered using any brand of cutter.

For example, every material does not use the same settings to get a cut thus requiring constant testing (and sometimes, wasting of material unnecessarily). Or, another one is, the cutter will not always track perfectly and what do you do when it does not? Or, when you get a strange type of cut, when setting(s) should you tweak to improve it and not just arbitrarily change settings that may not help the strange cut?

Sorry to ramble and get off topic....Again, great graphics you have here.
