Dannelson, no I haven’t tried a insert bit. Actually never heard of it. Where do you get them?

Bob, I don’t think you can attach a Laser to a CNC. Well actually I think you can attach it, but I don’t think it would work. I’ve seen a laser engraver in action and the speed the laser needs to move is way faster than what the CNC is capable of. The entire head of the CNC machine, that probably weighs 100 pounds, moves along the axis of the machine.
