Than you Dave.

I was impressed with this mainly because it was made using the Mach plug-in which others before me had criticized. OK the plug-in doesn't work 'straight out of the box', so to speak, it has to be optimized and fiddled with a bit but it does work, at least for me.  :)

The image is approx 120mm x 120mm and it took about 40 minutes or so (the Mach elapsed time doesn't work when using this plug-in).  If my machine had less mass to the X axis it could have been a whole lot quicker. (when using a laser the slowest thing is the axis movement unless I make a galvo scanning laser  ;D ;D - Amir was thinking about it for printing Denim so it could be a maybe).

I can post some of the dust accumulation, if you would find that interesting.  ;D
It's only been 7 months. I'm still WELL inside my projected time frame.
The (badly needed) new clutch I purchased for my truck is over 3 years old, and it's still in the box.
The plaque of neptune on the wifes fountain, made a year ago, is still awaiting a frame.
I can go on, but you get the picture.

I get the picture Sam - but I'm going to keep reminding you  ;D

Some people might ask if I have anything better to do with my time - answer NO, I am learning all the time and knowledge is everything.
