Once again.... I reiterate...Zax gave a good  couple of posts about glasses some time ago.  They are still on the forum.

The Chinese are notorious for "boosting" specs, so don't expect too much for your money.
As for some of the other low cost types  (Cheap)... be aware..not only poor instructions-  virtually unreadable - but some of their wiring and connections will make a qualified electrician take up may also have to change the control board and other components.  There are some real horror stories on Google about the machines that are usually Blue coloured shown on EBAY.
Let the buyer beware!!

 (The wood packing case the machine  comes in is handy tho) !!.


I need to keep the driveway clear because I am waiting for some stepper motor drivers and another CNC shield to be delivered, can't let snow interfere with building.

Stories I have heard is that some of them  throw the stuff up the drive!!
 One idiot courier in the UK tried to lob a package thro' an open upstairs window....missed! lodged in the rainwater gutter on the edge of the roof!!

16c (60.8F) here in the middle of the UK.... and sunny.
 Spring flowers are up and looking good... & the weeds not far behind!!

Think you need to read this before going further with a laser OR  even switching the thing on..

Also read on this forum how to make an enclosure for the laser.  Use of safety goggles etc.,(NOT just for yourself but for other people who MAY view the laser in operation......)

A number of people in the UK dissatisfied with customer service  from various companies, have aired their complaints on Twitter and Farcebook and forums they belong to......  Once this gets around and the company get to hear  they soon pull their finger out...

I flashed the 1.1f gbrl and the laser is always on, my floor was catching fire!

Just wondering if the home  insurance is up to date?

Good idea...but will anyone bother to take notice of it?  By recent forumites -  as there is  in the index  the answer to many questions that have been recently asked -   if  looked for.

I have mentioned on here   a few times....that if you want trouble free cutting then you should go for LASERPLY. The glue is different between layers to that of ordinary ply. ..and make sure it is for lasers..proper laser ply.   DIY stores probably do not sell it but a GOOD  timber merchant who knows his stuff more than likely will.   It is a bit dearer  but if you use it you should not have any trouble. 
Some ply for boat and aero modellers is pretty near the mark for lasers as well. (I believe Ralph (ADMIN) has used it)   ...

Same here, but I welcome it. It's like smelling fired rounds at a gun range. Makes one feel alive

I have mentioned the fact that we could use BALL RACES  instead of wheels IF you can get the correct Outside diameter and Inner diameter.  Would run truer than moulded Nylon wheels.   I have not tried this yet but I may when I dismantle the  laser for wheel measurements etc..

Surely he can test it by removing the laser and shining it through the acrylic (Perspex) sheet and see what happens (if it absorbs all or part  of  the light? (using glasses or not looking DIRECTLY  at the test of course)!
