    I will start using the boundary box tip on my next job.
    Another small thing, put the trash area near the hand that pulls the vinyl off the weeding tool.
    I seem to see the cut lines better if I have the light coming from in front of me, instead of behind me.
    When I was weeding a job recently, I changed to weeding the letter cavities first starting from top to bottom, that way my weeding hand was not resting on as much sticky. (not sure if this one is always going to work)

    Thank you!
