I’m in the UK and have been thinking of cancelling my order for the basic for a while. I have been looking at the 60w eBay laser. I’m aware of the obvious differences like glowforge will be better quality, smaller, easier to use and the 60w ebay laser has a bigger bed, more powerful laser, cheaper.
What I would like to know is how bad/good are these cheap lasers? I have heard that they say 60w but are actually less. What is the difference of the quality of cutting and engraving?
I paid £1900 + £600 tax for the glowforge and the 60w ebay laser is £1382. I could get the 60w by the end of the week or wait months or years! for the glowforge.
