I was told yes by PC that yes you can use the current blades. I have a ton of blades but I am waiting for the new blades to come out in the stores. They told me that the new ones will have a green rubber on them that says Explore on it. Just want to see if they are really better. The one that comes with the machine does cut really nice so I would like to have some of the new ones to use with it.

I saw a video on YouTube where she used the deep cut blade from the Expression to cut a plastic mat and cut a stencil and it worked fine.

You need to remove the blade from the housing, since the old housing doesn't work on the Explore, and then replace it with the one on the Explore.

Hope this helps!

KraftyAnnie~do you have a link to that video? I'm adding helpful videos to an Explore and Design Space video collection on my blog and I'd like to watch it and maybe add it. BigGrin
