A laser is just another "toolhead" in my book - here is a thread for that.

I have all the parts to rebuild the gantry and have the laser cut parts welded. It is slow going between business and my wife having heart bypass surgery. Surgery went well and she was home in 5 days. Realy fantastic since she had a 20" cut down the front. After 2 days she went back with a post operative infection and had 2 more surgeries to remove the infected material and replace the removed flesh after the infection was under control. She gets out of intensive care today and will be moved to a ward where she will spend up to a month getting her strength back before she comes home. Fortunitly both of us are Army vets and are covered by the Vererans Administration medical center. Also the VA hospital here in Dallaes is a teaching hospital and has all the latest equiptment. Ironic, I spent 17 years in Special Operations and the only time I got seriously hurt was on a parachute jump in the States and have normal medical problems and she was in Combat Engineers and has a lot of problems. A little know fact is that in Special Ops we have more hurt in training than in combat.

With a mechmate can you achieve the same results that are being achieved with a gravograpgh, specilly when it comes to engraving small letters in Stainless steel and bronze surfaces. I have tried this with Onsrud tools bits specially meant for steel surface engraving with not so happy results. The letters do not look as fine and neat as you get with a dedicated engraving machine like Gravograpgh. The roter speed I operated on was 18,000 RPM.
