Hi, I am a wood turner who purchased an eleksmaker A3 engraver a year ago or maybe a little longer. It was my intention to use it to embellish some of my wood turnings. As I’m basically an electronics dimwit, it has been quite a journey for me. If not for the benbox laser forum and T2 laser I probably would never have gotten it to work. It does work very well for my needs.
Since I have learned just enough to be dangerous I decided to build my own two axis machine with one axis being a rotary axis. I will use to embellish things like bangles, rings, and small hollow forms. Mostly I will use it for laying out patterns I will then burn or carve by hand. The machine I’m building will be controlled by a Mana SE two axis controller. The chassis is complete and I’m now waiting on stepper motors and a ball screw to arrive so I can complete assembly.
