    Graphtec blades are not £100 they are under £15 and they last forever. I have both a CE6000-60 and a CE5000. They get used every day and I have only changed blades once in the CE 5000 in 6 years and never in the CE 6000

    Four years on, running 2 CE6000's (great machines) and finally ordered a BN20 yesterday.

    Time flies as they say :D

    Old post but still a great cutter - I assume the CE7000 is just as good. The only problem I have had with mine is the optical eye is hit and miss.

    The media basket is obscenely expensive at £400, so I made my own for £25 from 10 ft of banner vinyl, 4 broom handles and a 1 metre aluminium ruler.

    Wish I hadn't sold my ce6000-60 when I downsized, thought I wouldn't have room for it. Looking for another one now, but a lightly used one this time and not new as semi retired now.

    [QUOTE=pw66;148668] The only problem I have had with mine is the optical eye is hit and miss.

    /QUOTE]

    Only just seen this but for info - We have the FC7600 Mk 2 which originally had a hit and miss optical eye which would drive anyone mad. A Graphtec engineer travelled to us two days in a row, swapped out every part he could think of and eventually gave it up as a bad job and agreed to replace the whole machine. He phoned his office so they could make arrangements and the engineer on the other end idly made a "stupid" suggestion (!). It involved a connector lead hidden inside the control panel which turned out to be 99.9% pushed in but the odd 0.1% was causing the unpredictable errors even though it didn't show up in the diagnostics.

    A few seconds later we had a brilliant cutter we would not be without.

    My optical eye still has a bit of a squint. It will only pick up registration marks after about 20 attempts, which makes it all but unusable. The problem I had is that I didn't use the optical eye until after the guarantee ran out, so getting an engineer wasn't an option.
    I hnow have a print and cut solvent printer, so it is no longer an issue. The CE is kept just for vinyl cutting.

    As a vinyl cutter I would recommend the CE6000 to anyone. Well made and robust.
