    Chuck, I'd say "Great find", but I have no idea what it is or does :) Never heard of or seen one before, so off to Google I go!

    No, Mike, you might be right :) It might be easier to clean the lens frequently than deal with all we deal with. I'm just terrified of cracking a lens. Those babies aren't cheap and if I ran the...

    Mike, I hate what we have to do with the co-axial air assist. The fact that I have to stop, put the cone on, change something in job control (skip or don't skip), irritates me. If I worked in the...

    I've had tech support people (not Trotec) tell me under no circumstances could leaving the nose cone on with the air off do any damage to a lens. I've also seen the results of what happens without...

    On some materials, like engraving plastics, it can blow the debris back into the engraving, where it sticks into the newly engraved area, leaving a mess to clean up. On things like clear acrylics, it...

    My rule of thumb is "Air On- Nose Cone On", "Air Off- Nose Cone Off". If I violate that rule on either of our lasers, within a minute or two, it will begin to accumulate large amounts of debris...

    I agree with Kev, it's got a clear lacquer on it, the oxide process must be a solvent type product and it's wicked under the edges of the clear and caused that.

    A few months ago, I posted about getting stuff from Amazon that came directly from China. Since then, I have been a lot more careful when I look at items because when shopping on Amazon, I tend to...

    You sure if was true hard coat? I've hit hard coat anodized with 75W and done nothing to it. Not even a mark. True hard anodizing is VERY hard.

    That's a great feature with Job Control X. You can export materials. Attached is the file you can import into your materials database. I had to zip it to upload it. It should be close. Please note...

    There's more to this story Tim. As Dan stated, it's not physically possible for something like that to "fade". It's black die, it's not hard anodize, it's just decorative. Once you bleach the color...

    The housing will get hot, that's normal. It's an electric motor spinning a very heavy piece of metal inside the housing. I can't imagine why the motor orientation would matter, but someone else might...

    Stopped by the guy's shop and took another look at it. It's not the one I posted earlier, it's looks to be from someone that copied him. It appears to be from about 1900. I asked a guy there about it...

    You're not overworking it, that's for sure. I can't explain all the static pressure stuff properly, but you've got the right size blower and you aren't overworking it. If it's making a noise, it's...

    You're in NC, contact Jorlink. They sell GCC's which are good, solid lasers, but I talked to them at a trade show where they were in a booth with Chinese lasers. They said they were going to start...

    Yeah, I saw those Dan, that's about all I could find on the machine. I even searched for "Engraving Museums" to see if maybe somewhere out there, people had collected this stuff and someone had one...
  18. I think you are right Kevin, in the patent...

    I think you are right Kevin, in the patent application for it, it's called an "Engraving Machine" not a pantograph. I'd love to take this project on, but some quick searching yields absolutely...

    Looks like it was on that site Richard linked to. Circa 1883! It's missing a lot of the pieces from what I can see. Would be really cool to get it and find the pieces and restore it....

    It looked something like this. Had a foot pedal at the bottom to put pressure on the engraving side. Sorry the photo is so small, it's all I've found so far.

    The correction isn't like the Image Enhancements on the ULS, it is like the tuning for the "tuning wizard" they use now. But there is no ability to tune each individual material like you can with the...
  22. Anyone know anything about old pantographs?

    I saw what appears to be a very old pantograph in a shop earlier this week. Looks like early 1900's or so, just guessing. Had no electric motor and had what looked like an old sewing machine type...

    What hacked information? That's my point. You're not going to gather enough personal data about me (SSN, etc.) from my Facebook account.

    I don't know, I just don't see the threats. Does it...

    We do, however, I don't use the internet for anything financial for that (me personally). I just spend the money, I don't account for it :)

    That's what I was saying, that's about anything you do to my personally, isn't going to matter. Businesses, as noted, are a different animal.

    As an individual, I'm not sure where the risk is from...
