    Ebay fiber laser, I'll be the guinea pig--

    Thread Starter: Kev Williams

    Out of sheer necessity- and my fascination with buying the cheapest of something to see if I can make it work :D (Usually I have good luck, my big Triumph for example) One of my customers picked up a job making parts for an established company that moved into town from CA, they sell worldwide,...

    D-Day: 75 years

    Thread Starter: Frederick Skelly
