    tHANK yOU!
    tHAT GENUINE POWER SUPPLIES ANSWER IS A GREAT HELP!
    (oops, sorry about the caps lock!)

    But there must need to be a setting in the software somewhere (RD Works) where you can call up an option to trickle the minimum current like that ?

    There was a seller from NSW on eBay recently and he was selling... not sure either his own laser or as its distributor. The specs stated that he has a 260W tube so I assumed he was talking about a DLT-260. He was claming in the ad that this laser can also engrave. I contacted him via eBay messages and asked him how he made it possible as high power tubes cannot do it. He replied with something like "buy lasers from me and I will explain" He also said that he has some special settings to make this tube to engrave. Not sure if he simply lied to make a sale or indeed found a way to engrave with a 130W tube or even both tubes firing at the same time.

    I saw that ad also, Mike... and shook my head and decided it was an opportunist...

    Keen to see if Dave finds a setting in RDworks for setting the minimum orr a trickle current for a Reci tube...
