    My guess is they entered the page size wrong when they sent the job over. There's much that can go wrong in that area, whether you have "Minimize to Job" turned on, if you have "Take from...

    It's just the spot size. It all depends on what you are doing. If you are doing tiny scale models and you need a smaller spot size, then the 1.5" might be good for you. If you are doing 1" tall...

    Smaller focal length = smaller spot size. If that's important to you, it's something to consider when buying them.

    I've found powder coatings work better for us with multiple passes anyway. Too much heat in them will stain the surrounding coating.

    I went with UShip.com and so far, it's working out well. A little slow to start because I didn't list it properly and it caused the item to stay listed for about a week longer than I wanted, which...

    Galvo's are smaller, I've never seen a C02 one working, so I can't comment about how they work on glass.

    On the 120W, you have to burn at a certain speed/power combo to get your desired effect. I...

    Well, there are certainly a lot of options out there. First, more power and speed would help a huge amount on your wood products. You could do 120W on a machine and smoke through wood really fast....

    Out of focus might not work on Chinese lasers since they pulse differently. Just a guess. It normally doesn't take much out of focus to make a difference.

    Take it out of focus a little. That'll make the spot larger and it will help with making it darker. Might not get you to where you want to get, but it will help some.

    V-Carve is just the software used to create the tool paths. It's files are meaningless to Mach 3. Like Jason said, you need to run the code through a "Post processor", which V-Carve has in it. You...

    Did you double the feed on the ballnose? If not, then you put a ballnose in and ran it at 1/2 the feedrate of the o-flute, assuming the o-flute is a single flute and the ballnose is a 2 flute. If...

    Try to lower the frequency and have it take multiple light cuts instead of trying to power through it in one cut.

    There might be. One thing you can do is change the start point of the cut yourself. Make it a corner and the mismatch will all but go away. Of course that doesn't help on an "O", but it does help on...

    Keith, it shouldn't behave like that. It should be the same power/speed all the time. In the 6 years or so of running our Universal, I've never once seen power fluctuate like that under any...

    I don't believe you're going to cut through anything thicker with the different lens. I have the 4" and 2" and I extensively tested them on 1/2" thick acrylic and found that power/speed wise, it...

    I believe it's a rotary encoder inside the motor, all sealed up, but I'm not positive about that. I do know it doesn't have an encoder strip, or if it does, they are hiding it pretty good :)

    Whether or not it's the issue, I don't know, but I can, logically, see the motion changes between letters causing that.
