  1. Never said the material was defective. Said it...

    Never said the material was defective. Said it wasn't a practical sign making material for the majority of things in the sign mainstream. It's very heavy, a quality not liked when having hang signs. ...

    I didn't get one sheet, we used it numerous times. I'm not sure why my experience with it is constantly being discounted. Try it yourself. Sorry for trying to offer my years of experience working...
  3. Kev, I think it runs a little deeper than that....

    Kev, I think it runs a little deeper than that. SMC is massive on it's traffic. I don't recall the numbers but it used to be over a million visits a month. That would push just about anything on SMC...

    I think you are misunderstanding what I'm saying about it. I have said, "Left untreated it swells up". That's a fact. Leave some outside for a while and report back. I have said "It's not a practical...

    If I have to put 4 coats of varnish, then primer, then paint, I’m not using it. It’s not cost effective for those of us not in extreme environments like Neil. If that gets him long life in Alaska,...

    Good point Bill, only thing I ever saw from those diode lasers was VERY slow as well. Took hours to engrave a photo. I'll have to poke around and look and see what people are doing with them now....

    The thing that concerns me is he worked for Google. If you look at most any other laser menufacturer, you can find bad things about it online. Look up the GF and you won't see much of anything. Not...

    Kent, there's a difference in what's possible and what's realistic. To burn 1/16" deep in wood with 15W, it would be brutally slow. For example, something simple might take you an hour that would...

    Don't plan on engraving much wood with 15W. You will be disappointed. Wood needs some power and 15W just isn't going to do it. You'll likely never get an actual dark engraving. If you did, it would...

    No need to check any website, I, for one person on this thread, have used the product repeatedly over a several year period because of all the hype. I know what it is, I know how it performs, I know...

    Ctrl D when duplicating always worked great for me until the upgrades. One machine still does it perfectly, the other one does nothing but pop up a box and ask you how far to move it. The process...

    Excellent advice Kev! I'd also pipe a little into the sides where all the electronics are. Not much but maybe a little. I'm sure the motherboard would appreciate it. You could pop the cap out the...

    Bill, I'm 100% positive it was extira. I still have a couple of small signs I made with it somewhere around here. It was marketed to be the new best product for making signs. I left 1/2 a sheet of it...
  14. I don't know what size and shape you are planning...

    I don't know what size and shape you are planning on or what the mounting will be. I used it many years ago on a number of outdoor signs. I didn't find their claims to be accurate. Left untreated, it...

    Totally agree with Gary. Moisture is controlled by a properly designed system. It cannot be eliminated purely on the fact of what's happening to the air, the temperature of the air as it's running...

    Have you tried Nitrogen?

    You'd need to figure out how many SCFM each laser is using. That's based on the diameter of the tubing and nozzle, I suppose, and then multiply that by 7. At 60 PSI,...

    60 PSI on each laser? What in the world are you cutting. I ran tests a long time ago and I never found a noticable difference on most materials. If you need 60 PSI on 7 lasers you are going to need a...

    He didn't leave the internet, he's still out there. If you seek, you shall find :)

    In my opinion, he was the most knowledgable person on the forum when it came to lasers. I contacted him once to...

    Dave no longer contributes to this site. He is greatly missed, his knowledge is insane and his willingness to help is second to none.

    Had a customer contact us and want a pure gold card engraved. Can we technically do it? Sure. We could diamond drag it. The cost to replace it if it goes south? No thanks. Not worth the $50 for doing...

    Normally servos, Kev. Not positive on the 100, but on most everything else it's servos.

    Not sure if the same errors on the 300 but on the 300 that's listed as a hardware error. A very odd hardware error dealing with bitmaps. Is it under warranty?

    I've never tried it but the general rule of thumb I've always heard was if it's organic, the fiber doesn't like it. I'm sure there are exceptions to that, like what frequency your fiber is capable of...

    It's been a while since I messed with the ULS, but if it's 2mm off on the rulers, just take the rulers off, put tape down where they were, overlapping where the edge of the ruler goes. Vector cut the...
