I find myself wishing I had my Glowforge and yet realizing it cannot (at this time) perform the task that I really need it for.
I make handcrafted pens and have long wished for a way to do more that just engrave a single line of text on a pen body.
Until recently that was only possible with those engravers costing tons of money and with nothing but horror stories concerning laser tubes, chillers and belts.
Now that a jig has been devised to rotate a pen barrel while engraving it with one of the 1000mw Chinese engravers, and I have seen no one come up with a way to rotate an object in the GF, I’m wondering if the GF is the way to go.
The cheap Chinese engravers are notoriously lacking in longevity but I can purchase 40 or more of the cheapos for what I paid for the GF.
Hoping somebody comes up with a solution so I can justify my original decision.
