Silver Bullet Pro vs Black Cat Lynx - Comparison Video

Hi all,

Is everyone having as much fun as I am???? I'm having a total blast with my new cutter, the Silver Bullet Professional ...Oh my, this is a fun machine!!! It has been a dream to set up and use...the packaging presentation is just as impressive as the machine itself...LOL!!! 

I have a comparison video that I have done, between the Silver Bullet Professional and the Black Cat Lynx...it is about a 10 minute video, but I wanted to do a comparison that shows the difference in the 2 machines. The video is unedited, and this was done on purpose, so that you will know that I have NOT changed any settings without it being shown on there, and I have also compared them on equal settings and then their max speed / velocity settings...to show the difference in them. This is an honest comparison, and I believe if you watch the whole thing and listen to the sounds of the machines, you will see that I have been fair in my comparison.

It's true what everyone is saying about this machine, you just FEEL / SENSE the difference. And when you make that first cut, oh my, it's smooth like silk and you can feel the sleek, understated power contained within...just waiting to be released with the touch of a button.

I'm sure you will see a lot more projects coming from me using the Silver Bullet Professional...LOL...

I thank you for stopping by today, and if you would like to leave a comment, please do so! I hope you will stop by again soon...

I wish you a blessed and creative day!!

Until later...

Silver Bullet Pro

Yippee...a new addition to the cutting world...the Silver Bullet Pro...this is one "blow your socks off" machine!!

I have had the Lynx for a little over a year now, and have loved it! It is still a terrific machine, buuuuttttttt, the power, speed and quietness of the Silver Bullet Pro is beyond belief and the cuts are so fantastic and precise that it is impossible to accurately describe!!!

Here are a few pics of a cut done with my Lynx at a velocity (speed) of 500 and 600 and the Silver Bullet Pro at a velocity of 600. All of the cuts used the same 45 degree blade in the original holder, SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) and Co'ordinations Cardstock. On the Lynx I used red card and the Silver Bullet Pro I used green card. I only used different colored papers, so that I wouldn't get them mixed up...but I REALLY didn't need to...there is NO comparison in the quality of the cuts...but I will let you see for yourself!! 
This file was cut at a size of  3.718W x 3.866H and has cuts that are less than 1mm wide!!!

Now...just how cool is that??

If you want to see some AWESOME videos on the Silver Bullet Pro...visit my friend, Penny Duncan, take a look around on her blog, watch the videos and drool (like me) over her fabulous creations!

I have another friend that has done some phenomenal cuts and engraving with her 24" Silver Bullet Pro...you have got to go check out Rachell's blog and get a look at those SHOES!!!

I thank you for stopping by and spending a few with me and sharing in this exciting news! I hope you will return soon.

I wish you a blessed and creative day...
until later,

FOR SALE - 24" Black Cat cutting machine

I have a friend that is trying to sell her 24" Black Cat cutter - so I thought I would try and help her out...she purchased the all new Silver Bullet Professional cutter from Sherri at That's Scrap Inc. 

 Here's the scoop:
24 inch Black Cat Cougar cutting machine. Cuts a FULL 24 inches.
Purchased 2 years ago, and very gently used. It is out of warranty but I have had no problems with it.
I will ship this by the end of July, as I have decided to upgrade to the NEW SILVER BULLET.
It works with all leading software programs, including SCAL3, Inkscape, Corel Draw, Adobe Illustrator (using Signcut to send to the machine) and MTC. However, there will be no software included with the machine.
It is in full working order, and will come with:
USB Cable
Power Cable
Standard Blade Holder and blade
Mat, and I will include one sheet of the ReNu (13.5” by 27.5”)

You will also get the great customer service from Sherri at http://www.thatsscrapinc.com
And you will also be able to join the Black Cat Forum at http://www.blackcatus.com for any help with getting your machine set up and working.

I am asking $800 plus shipping and insurance. Payment by cashiers check or money order only

Contact me at: Angel135612@gmail.com

  So give her a shout and purchase yourself a super machine at a fraction of the original retail price!! This is a machine you can't go wrong with...I have the smaller one - the Lynx - and IF I had the room...you can bet your bottom dollar that I wouldn't be trying to help my friend sell this one...it would be on it's way to my little art studio (cough, cough) ummm...I did say little, didn't I? LOL

I hope you have a blessed and creative day...until later, Signature

Black Cat Lynx

Hi all!

Just wanted to let everyone know that Sherri over at Thats Scrap. Inc has the superb Black Cat Lynx for $399.99 which is in itself an awesome deal...but no, that's not good enough! If you order one in the next few days, you will not only get one of the best cutters out on the market, but...you can either get a free software or free shipping. You will need to purchase the machine and send Sherri an email (or include it with your purchase in the little box for comments) letting her know if you would rather have free shipping or a free software and she will either include the software in your shipment or refund, through Pay-Pal, the shipping charges right after purchase. Just click here to purchase...you will NOT regret it!! The machine is absolutely AWESOME and the customer service provided with and after the purchase is supreme!

Thanks for stopping by and come again soon!

I hope you have a blessed and creative day.
