Replacement cutting strip

I need to replace the silicone cutting strip on a 24 inch Silver bullet professional machine.  Sadly, they are not available on the silver bullet website.

Does anyone if the cutting strip for the KNK Zing machine will work with the silver bullet?  The length of the KNK strip is not stated on the site, does anyone know the length of the KNK strip?

Thank you in advance for any help that you may have.

    Did you send them an email to find out when they might be back in stock?  I would think they could give you a good idea on when they expect more
    Unfortunately, there seems to be shortages and out of stock on many things in the world right now.  Things you would have never thought of due in large part to the pandemic and international shipping delays it appears.  I know this first hand while trying to remodel a home during the pandemic (a job that was suppose to take 8 weeks - stretched into about 16 and still waiting on a range!) as well as trying to order other things only to find they are not presently available.  Toilet paper, hand sanitizers, and cleaning supplies are not the only shortages out there.

    That said - I would think if you can find a cutting strip for any of the cutters out there that are at least 24" they would work.  I doubt that there is any significant difference in the cutting strips put on these cutters.

    You might reach out directly to Chad at PlotterGeeks (and formerly KNK) and ask him directly as they sell the Skycut cutters and sell replacement parts for the KNK cutters since KNK USA is no longer.  Their contact page at PlotterGeeks can be found here:https://plottergeeks.com/contact/
    Go Vols!

    Is the strip all cut up from cutting through vinyl? Or it is just not staying down? There are solutions for the latter.

    I posted a reply several days ago thanking people for their response. it said it was awaiting approval but never posted.

    Thank you MeFlick & SandyMcC.

    I've reached out to Plottergeeks & Silverbullet cutters & have not received a reply.

    I will take a chance & just buy replacement strip & hope that it works

    There are a lot of them on EBay that seem to be the right width and thickness.  In the past I have referred KNK Maxx owners to these listings but since they change, I can't promise you that any are an exact match.  But they are also very inexpensive so you're not out very much money in case it doesn't work.
