Re: In Progress

Can you tell me the spot size with using your 35w tube, 38.1mm lens? Also will setting the stepper to 8 not 16 decrease Image etching resolution as well?

Re: In Progress

I really do appreciate the help in solving this matter and glad you understood my position with my frustration of doing the same steps over and over and having the same issue. It took you a single afternoon to fix the issue and I really do appreciate that you stepped in and took care of it.

Re: In Progress

I let the machine sit off for almost 2 hours. Turned it on and it went exactly to the correct origin. I will try again in the morning and make 100% sure all is good.
