K40 upgrades

Postby RetromanIE » Wed Nov 16, 2016 9:06 am

So I picked up one of these K40 laser machines(seems to be a slightly newer revision) and its actually not as bad as I was expecting. I've a few small upgrades on the way from Lightobject(mirrors, lens, laser head) and plan to upgrade to the X7 kit next month or maybe a little later.
I've 3D printed a few parts to help improve the airflow with the default crappy extractor and have a boat bilge blower on the way for a more permanent airflow improvement(I'll 3D print some parts and stick a power regulator between the blower and the PSU)

My question now is, I'll be buying the X7 kit which isn't that cheap, should i also go with a new 35w laser tube while I'm at it? The one in it seems ok, but for an extra 180-90 dollars will the one Laserobject sells be an improvement (performance or lifetime usage etc) over what I have?
