hi Mark,


I must have missed it somewhere, I apologize; what laser cutter are you using?




I have one of the "early" ModelExpo machines that's been heavily modified due to a tube breaking and water creating problems.   Instead of the original 40W (ok... 30W in reality) it's similar to the Chinese K40s,  but it now has a beefed up power supply, and the tube is now a true 50W with an extender on the laser case to allow for and protect the extra length.   It only has a 12X12 bed area but the machine is physically about as large as I can go in the current workshop.  The base cause was the water pump (an aquarium type is standard for these) died.   I replaced it with a refrigerated cooler from lightobject.com which has been goto source for all parts.


Here's a link to rebuild, this was the major upgrade before the tube broke and the power supply blew.

Glad to see you and the Death Star back at it Mark. I think your extra effort in doing your ships boats this way will pay big dividends in the long run. I too am big time jealous of your Death Star but to be honest I have no real idea what I would do with it if I did have one.

I can only admire from afar your skill in understanding and tweaking hardware. When my son was 21 he successfully built his own computer, with no previous experience or training; I still secretly believe aliens landed to help him, but what do I know?😊


Great to see what you are doing with it.


Best wishes,

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
