E6000 glue is recommended for use when replacing cutting strips. E6000 is a rubber based adhesive, which remains super flexible and stretchy once itâ€™s cured. The glue will not change shape when exposed to the typical hot or cold temperatures that might be seen when working with a cutter in a garage or basement.
Depending on the length of the cutting strip, each 0.18 ounce tube has enough glue to attach 2 to 3 cutting strips. The tube has a resealable cap so you can store it for the next time you need to replace a cutting strip.
1) Move the carriage to one side of the cutter
2) With a knife or flathead screwdriver, pry up and remove the old cutting strip
3) Clear old glue from the cutting channel with the flathead screwdriver. Any excess glue can be cleaned with Alcohol, Acetone, or Toluene.
4) Apply a thin line of glue to the bottom of the cutting strip.
5) Starting at the carriage side, slide the cutting strip under the carriage and then move the carriage out of the way so you can position the cutting strip correctly.
6) Using the handle of the flathead screwdriver slide the screwdriver handle across the length of the cutting strip so that the cutting strip is at the same level everywhere. (otherwise you might not have the same cutting pressure across the length of the cutting strip)
7) Wipe off any excess glue that might have come up the sides of the channel
8) Allow the glue to cure 48 hours before using the cutter
