Laser Upgrade
« on: October 05, 2016, 10:35:48 PM »
Not sure if this is the right place to post this question but here goes.

Has anyone purchased one of these :-

I have a diy cnc router that has been great over the years I now want to put a small laser upgrade on, but I have questioned the seller as to what purpose the USB looking part of the package is for.
I would like to assume its to control the on/off side of things , wirelessly , but even the seller cannot tell me.

Can anyone help?

Its a mystery to me what the USB looking dongle is

I am a compusive twiddler, you know I wanna twiddle with it until it works then move on to the next "improvement"
I have been thinking about one of those laser engravers, there is a guy on Utube CNCnutz he has had one on his machine a couple of years,
checkout his videos they are very very good on how to install one.

Another guy called OpenTronic does some acrylic cutting that I envy

It's your money to spend how you wish but I would not be buying a laser from a seller who does not know what he is selling or how to use (software and hardware) what he is supplying.

Many thanks gents.

I too cannot stop fiddling and making changes to the machine .
Yes I had to chuckle when the seller informed me he did not know.
The seller replied that he will contact his supplier , so I wait with baited breath for the response.
But at least he was honest with me.

I too like to buy with confidence.
