    That sounds like your tube is going if you've already realigned your beam and did the standard check list. If you need to do multiple passes for 80w at .1 speed there's definitely...

    Personally I think you'd be better off with a stand alone system, adding a laser into a CNC area is no bueno, you can run the risk of damaging the optics with debris. I'm sure you could find a z-post...
