Introduction: Gearbest Laser Engraver - Review and How to Use It With Laserweb3

Gearbest reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing on of their laser engravers, a free laser? how could I not?!?

well as you will see in the video review, it was off to a bumpy start with no instructions or real support, but after a few days of searching the internet it turned out to be a pretty good unit considering the price.
