« Part 3: To help pay for the laser? Part 4 of Lasers in woodworking. series Part 5: Playing around... »

Yesterday…. the laser engraving machine arrived…

So excited, I forgot to get a shot of it on the truck, before we unloaded…

Had Barry and Mal over doing another job and lucky for me, they were still here… needed a hand to drag the pallet from the front gate to the workshop… only 20 metres [60 feet] but on a pallet jack over grass… not too much fun..

While I paid the driver and got the paper work sorted, Barry and Mal de-crated…

Bigger than I had imagined… even though I have seen similar machines at the VISA show…...

Had to set up some boards to roll it off the pallet and into the workshop…

All in… actually was not that hard with 3 of us…

Kind of a tight squeeze between the SCMS and the Table Saw… had to drag some of the equipment out of the way…

That is better… moved the TWC out and now have heaps of room…LOL

Starting to unpack… everything is jammed inside…. Chiller, blower, huffer, computer [yes I got a computer thrown in.] RECI tube and spare … and the rotary device…

More pics on here.

Larry, it looks really good and I bet that you can’t wait to get it up and running. i really want one but I can’t afford one that big. Do you use Corel Draw with that? Congratulations.

I think this machine need to be in a free dust room. Good luck with it.
I’m looking forward to see its first product.
