    Once you are certain that you have the laser at zero zero the software can be set to reflect that. Ask tech support to walk you through that the first time. .38" is a lot so there may be more to...

    In my opinion the owner is correct. All three of the machines I've owned produce a similar effect. In your first example you might try lowering the power or speeding up the machine as it looks...

    Mike
    Thanks for posting a great tutorial. I am a fan of box making and, as much pleasure as I take from making them, it is always rewarding to see the appreciation of the recipient.

    Welcome to SMC. Where are you located?

    Are you using the leather settings that came loaded in Job Control? What dpi are you using? What is the wattage of your machine?

    I've heard of that and reports were good but I haven't tried it. There is also a cement for bonding glass that will also work but requires UV activation.

    That would be super glue. I use a solvent for acrylic which contains methylene chloride. It's available from Johnson Plastic and other plastics supply houses.

    Pictures are invaluable. A $6 per year contribution will permit you to post pictures and certain files.

    In the meantime, I generally use solvent cement for acrylic but that is very...

    I decided to re-draw it but got way-layed by some orders. I had planned to fit text to a path for the AZ and change the size of the "9" in 2019. At that point I would have used weld on all...

    Bert

    In over 20 years I've never had the need to convert a drawing to an object but if you post the drawing I'm sure we'll figure a way.

    I believe that would work but it would be good to know the db rating.

    Antonin

    The blower you described will be much more than you need and will probably do two things. One, it's likely to be very noisy and two, it will probably suck all the warm air out of the room.

    I am partial to inline blowers that can be mounted inside. They are quiet and efficient--but maybe a little more expensive.

    Yeah! I apparently got careless on a print merge job and had to send 4 new tags out by $25.00 Express mail. It happens.

    Bill

    You can do this with your CorelDraw program. Use the weld tool to weld the text and the hanger together.

    Call Epilog to see whether there are parts that won't be available. My guess is that you'll be ok. Expect to spend some money particularly on belts and bearings.

    Yeti's and clones are a big part of my business. My Trotec Speedy 300 80 watt is both fast and accurate. The 300 rotary device is superior to the smaller version in that it allows for more...

    I have a Speedy 300. Most of my work could be done with a smaller table but I like the speed, the rotary device and the flexibility of the 300.

    The vacuum the Kev mentioned will do more to reduce scratching than just about anything else. You would likely be getting into more money than you want to spend so I'd advise using...

    More than likely that is the right diamond for drag engraving. Obviously, you should test it on some scrap before using it. You would not use the motor.

    I'd be more inclined to buy from Johnson...

    Steven
    That looks great. I picked up a Craftsman by Millers Falls that is a clone of yours. You have done a better job of restoration but I still have a ways to go.
