main reason behind this project was to make zeroing laser to the work easier  . unfortuna tely just noticed that the laser test fire button is inoperati ve when mpg mode active , kinda defeats the purpose . defeat snatched out of the hands of victory.
now I need to build a red dot system too, unless anyone has some bright ideas

just tried it out on the k40  , it works just like a bought one !   
0.1 mm steps @ 900mm/m  is ideal for positioni ng the laser  , 1.0 mm steps @1800mm/m is way too fast for the k40 bed .
0.01 might be needed for touch off on the mill .

i have set the mpg up to have 3 axis's,  each can have its own steps/mm setting stored in eeprom , with a built in setup menu.

They were all over the news a couple years ago, then pretty much disappear ed.  I found a 100W version on Amazon for only $48K; drop 2 or 3 zeros off the end and it might be affordabl e.

I wonder if they ever sold any of them?

Hey guys,

I've seen the half million dollar industria l rust ablating lasers on youtube:
https://youtu.be/Q8q3DZB_l6M

I was wondering if one could use this on a smaller scale for cleaning very small stuff. I often have to clean small brass parts that are corroded. They have very important textures and shapes, such as fine threads and engraving s. The problems is the oxides are tuffer than the metal, and anything that will remove the corrosion will obliterat e the brass. These lasers would be perfect, were it not for the $$$$$

I only need to clean a pinhead area at a time -- very small stuff.

So I ask you all:
What kind of laser are they using? Wavelengt h etc.

Are there standard Chinese engravers that could remove corrosion on a very small scale?

I've heard of shiny metals ruining lasers, is that an issue for corroded, amorphous lasers?

I'm on a low budget, so combining a CNC laser engraver/cutter with some cleaning would be awesome.

Any help/advice is appreciat ed.

parts arrived for pokeys end . its behaving perfectly on the bench .
decided to calibrate the mpg to match the 100 indents per turn it has .  its now set that 1 click is 0.1mm on slow and 1.0 mm on fast. will see how that works out in real life.
still waiting for lipo battery and usb charge manager to finish the job
