    New Shop Construction

    Thread Starter: Kris Cook

    I currently have my shop in a two-car garage. While I don't necessarily use both bays of the garage solely for wood working; for me the footprint of one bay is not adequate space to efficiently work. We are down-sizing and have just purchased a 100-year old house north of where we live now. The...

    To buy or not to buy

    Thread Starter: Daniel Perry

    Please bear with me, as I'm about as 'new' to lasers as humanly possible. As in, I've never even touched one. So, how dumb am I, if I was to purchase an Epilog or Trotec (the two brands I'm looking at), without having ever even seen laser engraving in person? I live in a tiny mountain town, in...

    Thank you.



    Thank you. Think the galvanized spray will work? Or just slap it on the cnc and use the drag bit?
