Mark, Just read your latest post and you’re right, there’s a REALLY big difference between $5,000 and $15,000, that said, what’s the price difference if the “Hurricane” goes down (and believe me, they all will sooner or later) and there little or no support. I’m sorry, but I just don’t trust the Chinese building/electronic skills when it comes to something that precise. A hammer at Harbor Freight I’ll but any day, but . . . .

Have you tried Universal Laser in Arizona? That’s what I had and every single time it got a little hic-up, I’d call and they’d fix it over the phone. I see now they have a 25Watt “VersaLaser” that I’d buy in a minute if I had an extra $12,000 laying around. Don’t worry, I don’t work for them or even have one of their products currently, but if I were to go back into lasering, I’d call them first.

Also, there’s a company (in Wisconsin I think) that sells used lasers, with warranties and support from Universal that I hear is really trustworthy and fair. Maybe call them or ask Universal about a used one. Could save you a heck of a lotta money and you’d get an American product with plenty of backup. Just say’n . . . . . .
