Wilson's Rotary Add-on / laser etching on the curve with this add on

                                                                    WILSON’S ROTARY ADD-ON

Welcome to the Rotary add-on for laser users, I invented this add on because I had a contract to supply my old regiment with flask having the hat badge etched on them, and as there was nothing affordable on the market sat down and designed what you see today.
This unit can hold items from about 10mm dia to 100 mm using the two step motor positions on the back plate. The length of the unit is now fixed at 300 mm so this will be able to accommodate quite a large range of items such as bottles tumblers and wine glasses, I know because I have done them all using this unit.
The kit comes part assembled to make it easy for anyone to assemble along with the dreaded “instructions” which none of us read, but as I had some spare paper laying around thought I’d draft one anyway.
The step motor you fitted to the unit has a lead and this goes into the control board in place of the Z motor at the back of the laser unit.
The only thing your going to have to do is work out how you elevate the machine to enable the add on to fit under it and gain focus with the laser. I suggest 5” or 120mm or there about. I have uploaded pictures to show how I got over it, but I have a milling machine so was easy to cut slots out of blocks and pin the lot together with ply strips.
I might come up with something a bit more professional later but thought you’d like something to think about in the mean time.
If like me your using the brilliant T2 laser program you will find in the second  “settings” the option “Rotary Axis Enabled” this will be activated once you have loaded your design to be etched and created the G-Code, all you have to do is enter the diameter of the object and the program sort it all out.
A word of warning try to remember to cancel the option once you have finished, or your flat job that you put under next is going to look a bit sad as it will be one big blob, yes I talk from experience.
I hope this has been interesting and if you need to know anything else or of course place an order please contact me on email at tugwilson206@gmail.com
Thank you for viewing. Tug

Hi everyone, I am the designer and supplier of the unit you see in the photo, it is a simple and effective product I made to etch a large quantity of flask's for my old regiment. this unit is all you need to go with your existing laser machine and I can supply either assembled or in flat pack mode ( some parts are already assembled to make things as easy as possible and a full instructions and parts list is enclosed.
The price of this rotary unit is £86 or $114 plus postage at cost, I'll tell you the postage once I know where it's heading.
If you want it assembled add £10 so £98 and $129.
If you need more info or would like to place an order please message me or contact me at tugwilson206@gmail.com.
thanks for viewing.
