I want to give all a heads up on the use of lint rollers on mats. I used it to clean a mat full of little dots from sunflowers and it worked great. next time I used it to clean bits off it was soooo  stickey it cracked my brand new mat! it was a zing mat and the roller was so stickey it cracked the mat when I tried to lift it off. just be aware and be careful. I am now making the roller less stickey before I use it by running it over something a few times first. I am crying over my brand new mat!

Wow I have used  them since I got my 1st Craft Robo, about  a Month after the Robo went on sale. Never had any problem  with mine like that.

Re: How to keep the cutting mat sticky ?

Betty Higginbottom <b.higginbottom1@...>
 

I’m going to have to  try and work something out for mine because I  always had Craft Robo  with the A4 mats and  put mine through the Xyron to re sticky it  but that’s A4 and the Cameo which I have now is 12 X 12.

I have idea’s in my head but until I need to  redo  it I won’t know if it works LOL

I think the wipes and lint roller are great for removing extra debris from the mats, especially in dry, dusty environments, or for removing pet hair, etc. All of these little bits do hinder the affectiveness of the mat adhesive. Keeping your mats covered with their original covers when not in use can help extend the life of your mat adhesive. 

 

Wipes and lint rollers don't seem to help renew stickiness much  in our humid environment, though. There is a point when the adhesive itself does need to be renewed. At that point, try one of the suggestions included in the document called  I.09_Mat Care.pdf   posted in the Group's Introductory Lessons folder of the Files section.

Re: Webinar downloads

I think what she is saying is that because of data limitations of her personal home isp that when she is in town and can use a wifi connection she downloads the recordings to watch then or later at home. That way she does not get hit with an overage on her Hughes Net Internet bill. I take it where you live must be rural with no dsl or cable type connection available. My mom is the same way. They (mom and sister) however use a Verizon usb wireless modem. The Hughes Net was $$$ just to buy it so they went the Verizon route.

no you don't... just let it dry some. the wipes basically help wipe away the little paper pieces, then when it dries (doesn't take very long), the mat is sticky again.

Re: O-Rings

I have the same question what is the purpose of using the O ring. I did see the pictures that was posted, my concern is what exactly does it do. I have a Cricut and I know that MTC no longer support Cricut.

Re: O-Rings

Julie Flanagan
 

The primary purpose of the O-Ring is for raising the tip of the blade higher from the surface of the cutting mat when cutting thicker media, so that the blade does not scratch the surface while traveling between cuts. When cutting thicker media such as Fun Foam or chipboard, the blade often needs to be fully extended in order to cut through the media. But some machines do not have enough clearance under the blade tip for the fully extended blade for thick media to pass without getting scratched. The O-rings provide that clearance. I have not needed to use O rings on the Pazzles, as it has had enough clearance for cutting thicker media. But I have needed to use the O-rings on the Gazelle and Zing. I may need to get some larger O-rings for the Eclips, as I its blade needs a bit more height. I haven't tried the O-Ring on the old Craft Robo blade holder, but it should work on it as well. We have used plastic O-Rings, or cut several out of cardstock to increase cutting pressure on Craft Robo, Wishblade, Silhouette, and SilhouetteSD. Those would work on the Cameo as well. I have not tried using O-Rings on the Cameo blade holder yet. Its blade holder would also require a larger ring than what I have. I haven't tried them on the Cricut blade holder either, as it seems to have enough clearance for thicker media.

no you don't... just let it dry some. the wipes basically help wipe away the little paper pieces, then when it dries (doesn't take very long), the mat is sticky again.

This not only increases the cutting pressure, but it also raises the tip of the blade above the cutting surface so that it is not scored where it shouldn't be scored. Some machines such as Gazelle, Zing, KNK, Cougar allow you set the origin so that you can start and end the cut at that point.

This sounds interesting. Do you have a picture to post and where do you get the O ring from?

Is there a way to make the machine start and end where you want it to? I am doing a 'rhinestone' pattern, for embossing, on thicker embossing mat and don't want the 'drag' line across mat. Should I just raise the embossing tool?


Re: How to keep the cutting mat sticky ?

April <auggiebetrue@...>
 

no you don't... just let it dry some. the wipes basically help wipe away the little paper pieces, then when it dries (doesn't take very long), the mat is sticky again.
