    I have just learned by sad experience that you do not want to buy
    this or anything from GREARBEST. I bought one of these and it burned
    once and stopped. After quite the struggle of getting them to
    understand that the laser does not work (them asking the exact same
    question every time- can't they read prior communications?) they finally
    told me I can return it for refund where the cost would be about the
    same as if I bought this again.

    This has great potential, but you need to find a reliable source before you embark on this project.

    This is a showcase of a product, not an instructable. Nice laser engraver though.
