Bought New only a couple months ago. Only did a couple cuts and the calibration. PRACTICALLY BRAND NEW!!
Bought to replace a manual (non computer controlled) Die Cut Machine I have but my material was not compatible with this machine. Machine Works Perfectly.
Selling at a loss to get at least some of my money back. As I will now have to buy 2 expensive new die's for my manual one. Includes everything that comes with a brand new one PLUS the Extra Large mat, a free bonus!  My loss is your gain. was Hoping to sell for around 400$ though I'm open to Offers.

    What material were you trying to cut that didn't work on the Zing Orbit?

    Like Sandy I am curious as I know of no die machine that can out do an Orbit on cutting difficult materials.  Would love to know so that we can warn others in respect of this material.  It would be a real shame for someone to buy this material and then find they can't cut it.

    CCNB with a layer of Glossy Photo Sticker Paper on top. Slipped on me every time. I'm sure if I tinkered with it a bit i could get it working BUT the main Biggest issue was software and time spent per cut. took way to much time and file space. The manual die cut may not be as accurate but its much faster and more simple for my needs. I just cut out the same 3 shapes over and over.

    Oh and i was really frustrated to find that the machine only carried a 15 DAY return policy.... I was shocked that it wasn't at LEAST 30 days for a machine of this expense. tried to reason with sales team (WHO NEVER ANSWERED ANY OF MY PHONE CALLS BY THE WAY) to make an exception and was slapped with that ridiculous 15 day return excuse.

    It's not that machine is bad or can't do it's job, I'm sure it excels at it. It simply just was not a good fit for my needs. And I bought it blindly because after a week of trying to call the sales team, (leaving voicemails) and ask questions I gave up and just figured "how could it not work?"

    Oh that is so sad.  Sandy usually picks these things up either here or on the FB sites.  I know the KNK team in the US have been ultra busy but I am surprised that they didn't respond.  This really isn't acceptable - somehow you must have fallen through the cracks.  I hope something can be done.

    If this is the material you were cutting then I could see where it might either be thicker than the maximum exposure of the blade or just require a lot of testing to optimized the cut settings.  I'm so sorry you were unable to reach KNK ahead of buying. I normally recommend people contact them via their ticket system because then it's logged. However, you should have received a callback and I'll be checking with them to see how it happened that you didn't.

    I'm looking into why you didn't receive a callback and I would appreciate knowing your name and phone number from which you called. Please either send me a private message here or email it to me at smccauley45@cox.net. I promise that the information will not be shared with anyone outside of two people at KNK USA.
