    Is that true that infared laser are the best for burning ?

    A clear plastic lid is fine for CO2 laser cutters. A lot of material won't reflect it & that clear lid is opaque to the beam. It would have to cut through to get out.

    Re: X-Boost V7 Mini (10mmx12mm) 1.8A Laser Driver Perhaps try a batch on a hotplate? :thinking: Reflow the DFNs on the hotplate & do the other side in a toaster. Epoxy the little monster if it tends to move during 2nd reflow.

    Look what "iFound"

    eBay bots?

    If the bid was in the last few seconds isn't that usually a snipe bot? So no one may have been online at the time then. Are there really account details they get by winning that are useful for scams? I thought snipping is just to increase chances of winning an auction out from under other...
