Can anyone tell me what the settings should be for photo engraving on basswood? I'm actually struggling to find out the proper technique...
How many lacquer coats should I apply? What settings to be used on Legend 36EXT - 60W ? Should I do it Basic or 3D? Etc...
So... anyone that engraved basswood on a 36EXT - 60W Legend, please share the information. Much appreciated ...

Thanks Zaav. I'll try that. I see you are pretty new into the laser engraving area (just like me). I hope you'll have some good turnovers.
I think we'll be pretty cool if will keep in touch, about future projects. anarky4@yahoo.com

See ya....

I have done some fridge magnets with a lighthouse on them using 80 power 100 speed. I would put a thin coat of polyurethane, light sand and clean then laser.

Hope this helps.
