I’ve been emailing with a guy in my town who has an Epilog Helix for sale. The story is he’s selling it for a friend who got it used in 2006, and who’s never used it since. Fishiness aside, how should I evaluate the machine to determine if it’s in good working order? I’m new to lasers (but not tools and machinery). Thanks.

I would cut some test pieces and measure them to see if they meet my required tolerances and\or those published by the mfg.
