So this is the first test after optical alignment. I went with the copper pipe air assist (cost me about $3) and it works very well even with smaller volume pumps. Still using the m2 nano/inkscape/k40whisperer but my Cohesion3D Mini will be installed soon.

Here is a great article on why this is better than the nozzle type heads: https://k40laser.se/air-assist/

Tech Bravo

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.
