Where by I live there are about are no less than 15 tile / stone places to visit.

Second place I went in stocked 12" x 12" totally black marble. Engraves amazing well. I have attached a picture of my first engrave. Nice white etches. This was my first try with this stuff. 300mm speed / 50 power. .1 scan gap, 200 dpi. Even my wife was like wow! I got a close up picture also. I own 2 lasers 1 Shenhui, and one Redsail X700. I did this on my Redsail. I'm curious to see how my shenhui will do. My shenhui is new, and it's my backup. Not too long my power supply died on my redsail and it took 30 days to get a new one. In the meantime I lost several sales, so I decided to purchase as second backup laser. It etches great on wood, but I am curious how it will compare to my Redsail. I"ve had the redsail for over a year and I've been very happy with it.

I have steadfastly refused to do photos with my laser but you may have changed my mind just a bit. Excellent work!

Clark,

Where are you? Was this a chain store that might be available to others elsewhere?

Nice job! Thanks for sharing!

Lucky you! It's very hard to find marble like that but it is obviously the perfect laser portrait substrate - excellent results!

And smart idea getting a backup!

cheers, dee

I think they are local, but I could be wrong. I will ask next time I stop by.
