    Yep. I grabbed one of my pmags and tested with (something like) a 5mm circle and moved the mag around trying different settings til they passed the scratch test - scratch the mark once you think it...

    PMAGs are high speed low power...like 10 or 12% depending on what we mark. Crosshatch for additional brightness. Varying hatch densities can affect color.

    Yeah, if it aligns. My guess is the eye would detect 0.25mm and maybe even less. Fixturing would be key and critical for success....and, you can assume the red dot and laser are in 100% alignment.

    If/once you have a good understanding of how the fiber operates, especially with respect to hatch type and density, power WRT to substrate etc. youtube videos can be a great teacher. Beware changing...

    Yep, all the time. I have one part I use arial font, about 0.075" tall maybe and you'd never know there is no 'fill'. The time is improved over raster and the vector "cooks" the cermark just fine....

    Bakers racks and the cheapo 2' x 4' table kits are what we use mostly; the 2'x'4 kits are good for large/whole sheets of...

    I had a whole lot typed and I deleted it as that it had no bearing on Ray Fine. I'll say this: see if they can cut you a deal on an additional/backup laser source. Power supplies and control boards...

    Martin, Youtube may be a good resource to see machines in action. Same with Facebook and other socials. What I have found is many folks use differing means to get the same ends. By watching machine...

    A quick update as that there has been little movement and no resolution...will post back once this changes.

    In a nut shell, the source died. The seller said they would send a 20W machine to...

    I'm weeping for them....

    I have gone ahead and bought a new source. With that, I have messaged the seller (yet again) to see what they can do for us dollar-wise on another machine. I'm hoping...

    Thanks Gentlemen.

    As an aside, I have not heard back from my seller since she confirmed the source was dead. EBay's guarantee is good for only 30 days, but they suggested and I have started a...

    Can you elaborate on the process to install the new source, aside from the obvious disconnect DB's etc.? I am in the same boat with our Raycus... Thanks in advance.

    Does anyone have experience installing and aligning a new fiber laser source?

    After three hours of checking voltages etc. last night with the seller and manufacturer it is confirmed the source is dead...no big surprise. The seller stated she would contact someone here is...

    The seller responded to install wechat to walk me through the fix (God, I only hope). We have connected via the app but he is 12hrs ahead of me so we are working on a time that works for both of us....

    Thanks Scott. Now I wait for the seller's response and hope I'm not [putting this nicely] out of luck. As I see it, these are our outcomes:

    Well, it does appear the source is dead. This unit was delivered March 31, 2019...not too long a life span for the source.

    After further review, it looks (and I hope) the culprit is a fried transformer on the one power supply.

    Thanks all. No, the laser does not fire at any frequency. The frequency settings I was using were the defaults in the parameters (1 - 20KHz if I recall correctly). Perhaps they were incorrect from...

    The seller has stated I need to replace the 5v switching power supply. I have (2) coming tomorrow. Hopefully that is the fix and not the source that is bad.

    My source is actually a Raycus, Kev.

    The intention is to reduce the frequency to lowest threshold to maximize power aka "umph" (<---not technical term)

    Threw a voltmeter on the power supply: getting 13.6V out of what is supposed to be 24V. We'll see if the seller sends me what I need. I may cross post to the other Ebay laser thread as an FYI. Thanks...
