Newbie looking for some help please

Post by rm28366 » Sun Oct 08, 2017 5:55 pm

Hi all. I am looking for a laser etcher that I can use on the metal shields that you get on sports trophies. I would also like to etch on beer glasses for pubs. I have seen the small hobby lasers but not sure what they will do. Any advice on the machine I need and how to use it would be great. Thanks in advance. :D

you need a minimum of 7 watts and it still might not do the metal. 15 watts may do but cost over $300 USD and a cheap machine is worth another 200. check out banggood.com to get an idea of what's available and gor how much.
