Plasma Dancing At Aperture ... arcing? Normal?

Postby robstach2 » Sat Nov 10, 2018 11:40 am

Hi guys. Now I'm getting my build finalized after a bunch of small stumbles. Laser now fires from the software.

I noticed this when firing for a few seconds. I'm not sure if this is normal or not. Can anybody chime in on this? Brand new tube, chiller, etc...

I am using water from my RO/DI unit fyi


Thanks!

This is totally normal. No worry at all.
If it was spark like or yellow, then it is time to get worry
