Since I had a bit of a difficult time cutting my first heat transfer vinyl, I thought I'd change the OEM blade.
I removed the little holder, carefully took it apart and found this.
Left is the original blade - parts and spring.
Right is the replacement blade I want to install.
They're pretty different.
Is the new blade on the right compatible?
Do I need that little brass part for the new blade?
(I've had the Zing about 4 years, with not a lot of usage...)
