    Awesome machine.



    Takes A3 sized material.

    Been playing around with odd bits, got it to engrave on stainless but needs some more experimenting. Gone a load of key fobs that were needed,more to try it out than do key fobs.

    First paying job was yesterday.



    These are 35 mm diameter and you cannot buy them. It's part of a vacuum valve that when it goes wrong you junk it and buy new but all that happens is crap get on the brass seating inside and just wants cleaning off. Only problem is the gasket splits when you strip it and it's next to impossible to make a new one. that small hole in the leg is 0.5mm.

    Heres a crap vid of it cutting, about 12 seconds actual cut time.



    This is one of it's next jobs.

    looks nice, my mate has one and has had a load of trouble with it. His one is blue though so that could be the problem.

    Thats a much fairer offer... after all it has some nice steppers and the price of iron is up a little at the scrappy
