Tweak; Where are you finding the engraving images, they would be good for me to Palm Engrave? Love the Train Engine. Thanks

Hi Craig,

The train image was taken from the thread mentioned in the last post but if you PM Jeff directly (JJWMACHINECO) he could, I am sure, provide you with a better resolution image for your palm engraving.

Something that made me smile…

This guy obviously thought it would be fun to laser engrave the sausages !!.

After the fire this was the mess he had to deal with.

HEY Tweaks, Can you track and shoot down ICBM's yet ?

You are having WAY too much fun.

Hello everyone ;D

I managed to stabilize the Mr. Tweakie PWM controller with Mach3 ;)
 "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8I5QgCz-lo"
With the same G-code, I managed to burn the image to the center (2.5 mA) and cut out the leaves of the tree and the framework (19 mA) I am happy. :D

If you want you can see the beginning of my work here"http://www.laserfreak.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=107&t=52456&hilit=cnc+laser+bleu"
But I still have much work to have the same quality as you

Thank you all for your work ;)

Hi Bartabac,

I am pleased that you have sorted the PWM issue. Thanks for posting the link showing your machines and work.

Hi Terry,

Given the distance and thus small angles involved I am sure Mach3 could handle the task but I think I would need a Damn Great Big Laser.   ;D ;D

I'm finally getting my laser diode machine tuned in.  Burned this today.  It's a little too dark, but caused by wood type.  I need to replenish my good wood (Baltic Birch) supply.

Happy New Year All,

Excellent work John, I am pleased to hear that you have your new electronics, for the laser power control, all up and running – there will be no stopping you now.  ;D

(For others following this thread who may be interested in using diode lasers with Mach3 there are some more pictures and discussion on the techniques, hardware, development and progress in this thread http://hobbycncart.com/forum/63-151-8 )
