Folgertech / Slow customer service
« on: March 10, 2017, 08:02:51 PM »
I've had my Folgertech 3D Printer now for about a year. The hot bed stopped working recently and I'm trouble shooting it to find out what failed.

I sent a support email to Folgertech and was disappointed it took 2 days to get a response. I had to ask a question in response to their email and so far, another whole day has passed, without a reply to my reply.

I don't know what has happened to their customer service but it's really slow now. I'd have to think hard and long about buying another major system from them. Having to wait 2 days for a support response is unsat in my book!

They have a phone number, which I called, but it is only a pre-recorded message with no human at the other end. Bad. really bad.

Laser Safety / Acrylic Orange Shields

Most of our laser diodes have a wave length rating of 445nm -- make sure you KNOW what the rating is for the laser diode YOU are using.

You can buy a 12x12 inch acrylic Orange shield from the link below, if that size works for you:

General Discussion / CO2 Laser Grounding Safety
« on: February 20, 2017, 06:40:38 PM »
If anyone owns one of the 40/50/60/80/100 watt CO2 laser machines from China, this video is an absolute must see regarding electrical grounding safety.

Particularly interesting at the 9:30 point of the video regarding the bucket of water used for laser tube cooling!

10:50 point talks about safety glasses.

There is a lot of information about laser safety on the internet. For the safety of your eyes, Google and read about laser safety.

Everyone who buys, builds (option) and operates a laser machine is responsible for using it safely -- and -- is also responsible for the safety of others who are around the machine when it is in use.

By far the biggest safety issue is the wearing of laser safety goggles with the correct wave length rating for the laser diode they are using. If you buy another laser diode, you may also have to buy different laser safety goggles. I have 4 or 5 laser diodes but they are have the same wave length rating range so I can use the same safety goggles with any of them.

Another safety issue is to NEVER leave your laser machine running unattended! Never!
