? about Silhouette ratchet blade

TAMinatorTAMinator Member Posts: 2,929
can it be adjusted without the cap-thingy?   So I have an original silhouette (sd? ? ) that was given to me. There was the blade already installed and another blade - and no thing to adjust the blade with it.  So until I buy a new blade that will have the cap-thingy, if I do need to adjust the blade, can it be done with pliers or do you really need that part?

Side note: what a bummer. Since they sell the whole piece at the store, you don't even just replace blades like a cricut does? What a waste.

    @TAMinator - your SD would have a slot to accept the old style of SD cards. I have one, and I can use the ratchet blade holders in it. You don't use the caps.

    To change the blade out it is possible, and I know there was a Youtube video showing how. See here:

    You can get separate blades but it is not worth the hassel.  Get a new one with the adjuster that comes with it and store it -  I found I needed to change the blade about every three months when cutting daily - the replacements are so cheap it's hardly worth worrying about them.  Take a look on the net - you will see that they are about £6 each - not sure what that translate to in dollars but it should be a very similar in price.
