Re: Cutting Problem

Hi Ben That worked, but the blower will run as soon as I power up the laser. Is there any other solutions so the blower comes on when the laser starts? What is the total amps for the Laser, compressor and blower?? The laser is plugged into a 20 amp circuit. That may not be enough for the start up. T...

Re: Cutting Problem

You can see from the photos that I'v...

Re: Cutting Problem

Hi Ben Sorry for the late response. I just survived a Cat 3 Hurricane her in Florida. When I cut a design out in 3mm Birch or 6mm Birch the first 3/8" doesn't cut through. The rest of the design cuts out perfectly. Could there be a power loss when the laser and blower motor come on at the same time ...

Not cutting smooth

I just tried to cut into Baltic Birch and i'm not getting smooth lines.
The letters are about 3/16" high.
My machine is level and on the leveling pads so it isn't shaking.
Please see the attached picture.

Thanks
Steven
