My name is Brian and I am a full time geek! Before being pulled in to a real estate firm as their digital marketing guru I was Operations Manager/Senior Network Engineer/Lead Color Digital Imaging Technician for a medium sized Copier/Printer/IT firm. I have been taking things apart since i was old enough to handle a screwdriver and, over the years, have figured out how to put stuff back together. My toys growing up were oscilloscopes, Z80 based microprocessors, tools, and the like and I am heavily addicted to all things technical. I look forward to bringing hi-tech to you! Feel free to contact me if you wish.

  1. Hey man! Love your YouTube channel and site! Both are very informative. You seem to be the most active person revolving the k40. I just got one and need some help. I installed the C3D with the GLCD. My question is,can I now just disconnect the stock control panel and remove it from the machine? Probably a dumb question, but I’m pretty new to all this. Feel free to email me.

    1. Sorry for the delayed response. Thanks for the shout out! The control is still needed to control laser MAX power. The idea is to set is at 16mA or so and it becomes a hard current limiter. If you have a digital panel it is possible to remove it completely but you have to add a certain resistance (or use a pot) to dial in he max current (if you don’t have a current meter you should get one) plus you lose the laser test fire and on/off buttons. If you have an analog panel you could move the pot inside the electronics bay, set it, and forget it.
