    Why not use a CNC router? Seems like the right tool for the job.

    Thanks for the info. It's only about 15 minutes from here so that's pretty convenient. Maybe I can even save a few bucks by not having it shipped and I'll just pick it up.

    Could someone share the NJ location these are shipping from? That might put me over the edge on wanting to buy considering if something went wrong with the transaction, I could throw it through...

    I agree with Bert's recommendation but I wouldn't put too much focus on getting a dedicated graphics card. An onboard card with plenty of...

    I'd guess you have four things going on at once.

    1. The plaque is stored/mounted somewhere with temp swings or high humidity.

  7. Anyone else having a problem with vendors not using common sense when shipping?

    I've found for the last 6-12 months my vendors are doing a terrible job shipping stuff out. It's either poorly packed or they break up the shipments in 3-4 boxes rather than 1-2.

    Anyone else...

    That's not air assist. Air assist blows air into the cut to keep flames down. It can also effect how the cut is made.

    And yes, slow down more. You're barely getting through that material as is....

    You need to slow your machine down. The trick to cutting acrylic and getting a smooth finish (other than making sure your focal distance is right and your air assist pressure is right) is slowing...

    I own a VLS 6.60 and a LS100. Long story short, I can recommend the LS100 but not the ULS. Simply put, the Gravograph machine is way better built and simply out performs the ULS machine by a...

    I think the first thing you have to figure out (like Mike said) is whether or not you have to be globally competitive or just fair. Globally competitive would mean you would have to try to offer...

    Pricing depends heavily on situation and region.

    Generally speaking, for a perpetual plaque your markup is going to be 2.5-3x and that will include engraving the top plate and the first plate. ...

    I do a lot of work for municipalities.

    I assume you went through a purchase order process to buy this item. Purchase order process is pretty simple but effective. Vendor sends quote to School. ...

    It's probably something mechanical but sometimes systems are just designed poorly and result in subpar results under certain conditions.

    To test if it's the bearings, rail, or belt, slow the...

    Re-creating files for the fun of it makes little sense. We do it when we have to, but not for fun. The biggest reason I'll do it is if the Gravostyle computer is in use doing something else. We'll...
