A little problem I have been having at the moment is cutting new bands with my roller cutter. I have recently changed the blade to a cheaper non branded type that I got from Amazon. I have always used an Olfa cutting disc which I prefer but I thought I would try a different one because of the cost of them.
At first I thought no problem. I made my band set as normal attached them to the frame and gave them a few pulls to check everything is secure only to find that the thin end of my tapered cut bands had not cut quite as cleanly through as I had thought.
I had another try and made a new band set. This time concentrating on keeping an even pressure along the whole length of the cut. Then I put my reading glasses on!! Picked up the band and gave it a stretch to make sure it is a clean cut before attaching the pouch! Good tip this. I don't mind making bands but as soon as you change something just do a close inspection and look over your work before attaching your pouch.
I'm sure the same thing applies to cutting thicker bands as well. But with thin bands they won't last five minutes if the elastic is not cut cleanly all the way through.
