Hi,
my name is christian and I live in austria, working on some electronics projects in my spare time, mainly with arduino.
my actual project is somewhat like a DIY laser cutter. yes, I know, I'm not the first to do that, but nonetheless it is a thrilling challenge for me.
More on that in the thread I'm going to start right now at the right place in the forum (at least I hope so).

Thanks for the warm welcome!
Though I confess, I haven't read all of Sam's Laser FAQ.

Don't feel bad, I have been here a while and still haven't read 1/2 of Sam's.

That's a powerful lot o' readin'

I too have been wanting to make a CNC cutter. But I'm holding out for a CO2 system.
No use in building one, only to want more power within two weeks. (other then the experience)
Of course every laser I get, I always want more power within two weeks.
(Don't we all?)
LOL
