I have a CIR splicer and the blades seem a little dull. They seem to tear the tape more than cut it. Can they be sharpened by hand or should they be replaced? How often is norm?

Seems like it would be a nice machine if it worked!

Thanks!

Probably best to use a new blade. Do you have the instruction book for the splicer, so you know how to make adjustments?

Thanks for the links!

How does the Neutaper compare to the CIR splicer?

I think I'll get a new blade.

Neutaper as nice splicers if you can find them used. The blades are cheaper to replace that CIRO and most other brands of splicers. I have a neft compact model for using on the flatbeds tight space. look for a 16-SS or 16-SD. SS = Straight cut, SD = Straight and diagonal cut.
