Wow, eBay saved searches really paid off …again.
This time I bagged an a4 laser cutter. It’s a lot like the typical 40w Chinese k40 models out there, but has a more refined layout inside, and also has air assist built in.
I paid £100, but the twist is it came with a huge box of sheets - large number of a4 perspex/acrylic and also some birch ply. I’m pretty sure I can recoup most of the cost of the cutter by selling the acrylic - sweet. The problem is the control board is proprietary and the software sucks hard. Ramps upgrade possible later.
I may hold off putting a 2.8w engraving laser on the MPCNC for a while now!
