Laser satisfaction

Postby Pavel » Mon Jan 15, 2018 6:27 pm

Absolutely love my Shark Pro Plus, and have used it on plaques, signs, and other projects with carvings and etchings.
I am thinking of buying the Next Wave Laser. Only want it for photo projects on wood with additional lettering. I have been told that there has been some "doctoring" to images in advertisements for the laser attachment. Since I have retired funds for toys are limited, so I need input from actual users. Is the Next Wave Laser satisfactory for my intended use or should I invest in a dedicated bench top machine?

Just visited the Next Wave booth at the International Woodworking Show in Atlanta and was told a new 7 watt laser was coming out for the Shark. Was told it would roughly $1000.00

I am very new to the CNC world, just bought the Shark HD Extended about a month ago. I went all in when I ordered and bought the laser with the machine right away. I have been playing around with the laser for about two weeks and have mixed emotions about it. The burn is inconsistent on my projects. I just messaged support tonight since I have a customer that wants a poem on a plaque and I cannot sell what is coming off the machine right now. I have seen some nice looking engravings that claimed to be done on the Shark so I am assuming I am doing something wrong. I'll let you know what support has to say and if my results improve with their assistance.
