Mats and blades are expensive. There are workarounds. You can recondition your mats. Same recipes as the Cricut mats. Blades last a long time. At least two years with proper upkeep. You can sharpen the blades by cutting lines, squares, circles with heavy duty tin foil.
If you need a heavier machine with intricacy look at the Black Cat Cougar, BossKut Gazelle and Pazzles. I have a Gazelle too.
I hope I enabled, lol.
You sure have enabled. I have a Mac and sometimes I just can't run the same programs without a workaround. It's good to know that I can use the Mac with the Silhouette.
And the tip about sharpening the blades? Wonderful. I wonder if this can be done with the Cricut, too.?
