The  China Trade  spanning from shortly after the end of the American Revolutionary War in 1783 to date.
  Huh!..all these years of trading and most Westerners have been driven mad by the Chinese way of doing business...
So fear not..you are not alone......its a way of life with them and you can be sure it will be the same in 2117!!

Yes..its a good move anchoring the wires near the strain points..
The wire used by the Chinese I think, is not of very good quality. but excessive bending can cause even the best of wires to give up.

Think ZAX came up with a reply about one of these some time ago....  I am not too sure it does what it says...and if it does, then its probably over rated and won't last as long as,  say a lower wattage job.
 Chinese are well known for "boosting" details of goods.  Specs have to be taken with a pinch of salt. :)

. Don't worry non-native English speakers, we will most likely screw up your language as well  ;D ;D ;D

After a working life  Air Traffic Control I can assure you that the English language  (particularly on the R/T)  has never been mangled  more severely than by the French!!

The trouble with ABS is it either forms a ridge either side of the cut  (which can be sanded off) or it turns the sheet into a gooey mess...and not only that ,the fumes do not do the laser lens much good either and the place where you cut needs top quality ventilation..it really stinks....and venting outside can make you an outcast with the neighbours!!
