I have some finance stuff to move around and re-position to free up some cash to get my own chinese laser experience. I have an old laptop that I would probably use to clean the infections found first, but realistically, I’m looking at buying a brand new laptop here soon to use with the redsail clone I’ve been eyeing and the glowforge in the future. problem is, I’m going to need around a week longer before I can put the money down on the redsail clone. I’ve been watching the dwindling stock of the ebay 60watters too.
getting the bigger machine also means I need to get an electrician to check out my garage and install a new amp switch in the breaker, and get me some grounded outlets out there. then comes rolls of insulation and putting up some sheetrock, and getting a heating unit.
by the way, if that’s a k40, they have this thing called a “usb key” that literally just has to be in the computer the entire time it’s connected to the machine to get it to work. i’m pretty sure i’ll skip the corel draw x install if it comes with. my experience with corel is that it’s a drafting program designed by programmers with an apple/mac mindset. between fusion, photoshop, inkscape and sketchup, I expect to be fine. would you guys want me to put a similar thread up when I get my laser(not to steal your thunder, takitus-san)
