I’ve made the leap and decided to cut my laser teeth and a decidedly lower quality laser.
This week my K40 Chinese laser came in!
For the sake of clarity, this same (or similar) laser cutter has been mentioned:
and probably a couple more that i missed.
BUT now its MINE;)
It came with the legendary Fu Yu acrylic.
No instruction manual.
and it has been a blast to fiddle with!
Ive now had it 3 days, and today got my first cut and engrave out of it. I will say i have already nearly lit my apt on fire. It is not for the faint of heart. haha
Its crisp, but took several hours of guessing. and the repeat-ability without a fixture is gonna be hard. I am VERY excited for the GF now. Those cameras are gonna be awesome.
I feel like ive never owned a car, just bought a broken corolla, and have a Tesla 3 on order. So stoked to drive but really excited for the upgrade.
So as a side note to all you laser Pros out there. My laser tube is making funny noises. Can i get your thoughts on whether its a problem? When the laser fires, it makes a squeaking noise, it doesnt last long, and is usually at lower Amps. But i have noticed when rapidly turning it on and off (like rastering) it will squeak at higher amps. Here is a video of it. Thanks for your help!
