  1. Hi, I'm trying to find the best laser cutter for Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Rigid Foam Insulation (It's that pink very dense foam – the pink panther one). Can you recommend one for a 3-4 inch thick foam and a bed size of at least 2 X 2 ft.

  2. I need to cut Nickel strips out of full sheets for Li-ion battery packs terminals, They are very custom and I made them using Solidworks, What is the cheapest laser cutter I can get on the market today that can accomplish clean cuts for a thickness of 0.15 to 0.20 mm, The work space needed is as small as 3"x3".

  3. Amazin video. I got a Atomstack s10 pro 10W lasser. But because of the big size and a small apartment, I am thinking to return it and get a Laserpecker 2. But I don't know if it is the right decision because I want to start a small business and offer engraved things in different sizes but also small wood objects and the Laserpecker doesn't seem to be able to cut so well. Can you please give me your advice? Thank you for your answer

  4. I'm really impressed at the simplicity of the printer setup. beside it’s the Bestt.Digital product. It's a lightweight, clear instructions, and even the wifi connection took about ten minutes tops. HP has really stepped up their game since the last time I got one of their printers. For a home printer it's worth the price and functionality it provides. Thanks for making a good product, HP!

  5. Great Video, thanks alot

    I watched several of your videos and noticed that you didn't mentioned Laser Pecker , any issues on their products ? should I avoid them and consider one from the list you mentioned

    I'm totally new to laser engraving, appreciate your help 🙂

  6. I am looking at buying my 1st diode laser. I am debating between the Xtool and the Ortur pro2. If you were to buy one of these two which one you would go with? I know the Xtool is larger watts but I am thinking in one of your videos you said rumor was Ortur is coming out with a 10 watt head also. Also want to buy a Fiber laser to do metal engraving and engraving of guns. What would you recommend?

  7. Can other lasers such as OMtech Co2 lasers and Ortur Diode Lasers engrave on apple products such as Iphones, Ipads, Macbook Pros ect. without damaging the internals of those products?

  8. Good day, I am watching your video for some information. I've bought my KT4060 in 2020 and waited nearly a year for the machine to be delivered. When I opened my box it was only the machine with no software or anything to operate the machine. I am new to this, nfortunately the guy through whom I ordered my lazer cutter don't want to give the chinese company's name and contact details. Where can I find software for the machine. I want to buy the lightsburn but still need the software for the machine.

  9. I have never used a laser or cut wood with a laser cutting machine but I want to start a business in this area. What machine do you suggest I get? And where should I get some training or videos??
