    Very cool John! Congrats!!!!

    Custom engraved Coke cans? A niche market certainly. Hopefully it is lucrative for you!! <teasing grin>

    I keep meaning to ask where (roughly) you are in Arkansas? I worked a few years at Hot Springs National Park. Worked a lot of night shifts so I didnt get to explore the state too much, but a bit. A pretty state.

    Way up in NW corner. Near the Walmart empire, but closer to the Tyson chicken empire....

    I agree John! Walmart could be cleaner! (grin)
    Chickens? Love to eat em, but as neighbors large scale? Ima NIMBY!
    I went to college in rural ME and our nextdoor neighbor was a chicken facility. Every morning, as you sat down to eat eggs in the cafeteria, they fired up the incinerators to get rid of the night's fowl fatalities. Ughhhhh. Eggs lost their luster until my nose got used to it.

    Congratulations John, that is a slick setup. How much does the fibre weigh in total? Did you really need the forklift because of the weight or was it just an easy way to move the box?

    It only weights about 175 pounds max. I think 300 odd kilos marked. So 150.

    No, I guess if I had another good back here I could have moved it by hand, DHL sure didn't want to do more than push to side door. But I had the forks, and I could fasten securely to move around house to basement. I have about a 5ft drop in elevation front to back and didn't want to tip it. And tractor likes to run....

    Well, as a matter of fact, yes, my small tractor has a set of forks I put on the bucket to move things around with. But I'm not home and my daughter won't try it.
    So we agreed to hold it to this morning. Got the call at 9, and the girl arrived at 9:30 and I unloaded it in about 2 minutes.
    Then was able to bring around to my door and unpack. No damage, Boxed really well with a bunch of plastic foam. Not styro, but plastic. Good stuff.

    I then unpacked and moved it all in. Great day, 80 degrees so, I had good afternoon.
    It took me an hour to figure out the configuration and setup, Ray fine send disk, and also a thumb drive. These things sometimes need the thumbdrive, but no, it contained the software and setups for the laser.
    I have two lens and laser has to be configured for each. Guess I need to try and read manual too!
    At any rate, it WORKS! I've already played with aluminum and stainless and coke can along with PC flashlight and a drill chuck that was just laying there!

    My cheap setup, would have made the table bigger, but that was the size of my Melamine mdf sheets I had on hand. I'll move it out farther to get the lens centered over the table proper.
    Now I just have to come up with settings for the stuff I want to do!
    There were two files with mine on something, I don't recall if it was a USB drive or CD? Anyway all ready to go for 100 mm and 150 mm lens. Do you need?

    Bill, It has both on my thumb drive! I thought initially they were same files, (most of them are), but they are there. Now, I've got a f=160mm lens and a f=210 Not 100 and 150!
    I'll play with them both, I do know instructions for the settings were for the 210mm as there is a drawing showing the focus distance for the 210mm lens. I'll look closer!

    Thanks!
