FC5100 Reg Drifting


New Member
Hi Guys,

Got a humdinger of an annoying problem, my trusty FC5100 has developed a strange drift, while cutting with reg marks.

Out of 16 circles it will cut 7 of them more or less perfect than the remaining ones it cut them off center, please see image for better understanding this is in the X feed as everything is in a straight line.

I am using CM2 and AI CC 14 as these are the last versions to work with the cutter, I have to nudge my cutline 4 nudges to the right to get everything perfect in the beginning. As I have no idea how to calibrate this cutter so that I don't have to do the AI nudges.

Any help or advice would be welcome as I don't really want to retire her just yet.
