    The reason I asked about the 100% power thing is because I suspect some folks feel it'll shorten the life span of the tube.

    *many* published speed/power settings are practically useless-- I'd pay money to see any 30w machine 1-pass-cut 1/8" anything at 70% power and 70% speed. That's barely engraving settings-- cutting...
