On another note….At one point I thought the laser had failed as it wasn’t printing but it occurred to me laying in bed that maybe the CA was too thick.

I had one today. I was engraving my logo on the bottom of a tray and looked half way through to see nothing getting etched. It took me a minute to remember that I d focused the laser earlier for the inside of a cover that was about 4 inches deep, so the laser was just a fuzz-ball for the tray.

Oh. That’s impressive that it has that much range of focus. I wear a set of those $3 3x Harbor F. glasses when I focus to get the pin point as sharp as possible. If I had to do it again I might have gotten the 1500mW model (yes the one I sent back because I thought I wanted the open bottom.) :-) But now that I’ve got the jig working well I’m going to try and make 2 passes and see if the image is as crisp.

Sounds like you’re getting some use out of yours. Glad to hear it. Something tells me I might at some point down the road get a branding iron for the logo I don’t yet have.
