I have a Safety Speed Dustless cutter (Multi substrate cutter). I have tried for years to get it to cut straight. I can put the knife in and get it cutting Foam Core straight, but when I put the wheels in for cutting ACM It is off by 1/4 inch or so. Any ideas or experience with this?


We have the same problem with our Excalibur when cutting aluminum. The amount of pressure causing it to twist as FireSprint mentioned.

I found lubricating the wheels helps quite a bit. Also if someone is around, I'll have them lean onto the pressure bar as I cut it.
