    That stock came out fantastic Kev! The contrast between the very sharp graphics and the more subdued photo give it a very cool effect.

    What's more important to you - time or money? If you need to have something done fairly quickly, without as much of a learning curve, then either 1-touch or Photograv would be best. If you have...

    The brand doesn't matter at all, it's all in the way it's manufactured. Cast is basically poured into a mold where extruded is a big blob that is pressed into shape. They both have very different...

    You get what you need, no such thing as the "right focal length" - unless the laser is fixed focus and no z movement possible. If you want to guesstimate the focal length of the existing lens do a...

    5a at 120v is 600 watts - you may just have a 100w machine... you could also have a lower power source with a PSU that is way overkill.
