    Not too much new on the Bodor. It's been running great, with no problems.

    I have a small series of videos going right now on digitizing with CorelDraw.

    Here is the link if anyone needs some help with this great software!

    - They sent me the software to install and test out and I did NOT need a dongle to run the software!
    - The software supports dashed line etching, as well as 3d Lasering.

    Hello Wade
    First, I'm apologize for my basic english.
    I'm living in Mexico and I'm looking for the same model , probably with 150W.
    I have many doubts, and i hope don't disturb you to much. For sure I will send you all my concerns before I take my desicion.

    Have you made some engraved with deep parts? I saw some videos amazing and realistic engraved by Kern or Trotec machines.
    How deep can you get with 100/130W woorking onto wood (pine)
    A powerfull laser could decrease the engraving quality? Is there a balance between power and resolution?
    My idea is start a little bussines in publicity but i don't want lose the posibility to cut MDF or Playwood around 12 or 16mm?
    I'would appreciate your recomendations
    Thanks
    Alberto

    Hi Guys,

    New to laser, almost no knowledge and i would like your opinions about Bodor BCL-1006x.
    Until now is the only affordable laser i found and before i buy i would like to know if someone of you have one or worked ever with one.
    Are they good machines, does it worth the money?

    Thanks

    I have the BCL-1309X and yes, it's a great machine. The BCL-1006X is the same, just smaller.

    I'm very happy with mine, although I suggest NOT using the autofocus. It caused a friend of mine some troubles when the autofocus did not work right. The "button" that stops the bed from moving up jammed and her material go stuck under the lens tube.

    I just use the spacer block to set focus now.

    Wade, I hit you up on your Facebook page and that how I ended up here. Not sure if you will get this, the last thread was a month ago. I was wondering if you have any knowledge of the emergency stop button. I inadvertently pressed it, and it did what it is supposed to but I have since not been able to get any power back, I'm sure there is probably a relay/reset button or circuit breaker that I am unaware of and cannot find. So basically I have a brand new large expensive garage decoration. Any help would be very appreciated.

    All you should have to do to release the estop is to give it a twist, either left or right, I can't remember, and it will pop back out.

    Hope that fixes your problem.

    Yep, just a slight clockwise turn will allow the emerg stop to pop up! Make sure the "breaker" on the back is also engaged.

    Cheers,

    Steve.

    Wade, just started looking at Bodor since my Glowforge order has been delayed another 3-6 months.

    Can your model do 3D engraving? As I understand that process involves engraving a gray-scale image where the laser cutting depth is adjusted by continuously changing the cutting power so that darker portions of the image are cut deeper than the lighter portions of the image. If you've tried that can you comment on difficulty of the process and your satisfaction with the end result?

    Thanks

This is something you will have to discuss with your salesperson. They will be able to answer your questions and if they don't know the answer, they can contact their engineers.

    As far as the RV coolant goes, it is the coolant that you put into water lines in cold temperature climates to keep them from freezing over the winter. I mixed 1 gallon of RV coolant with 1 gallon of distilled water and it has been working great. You DO NOT want to use the coolant that would go into the engine, that WILL corrode your chiller and cause problems.

    Hope that helps,
    Wade
    Hello Wade,

    First of all, sorry my English is not my first lang.

    I registered in the forum just to say many many THANK YOU for your review, It helped me a lot with my decision, and you answered all my questions without even asking.
    I am glad to meet someone as kind and generous as you are.

    I was planning to buy Bodor machine and found your review in the search results.
    I am still thinking about it, because I prefer to buy European ones, they seem more stable.
    I took your review into consideration, because you wrote your personal experience.

    I saw the pictures you posted, all your work is very beautiful.

    Best wishes,, Sam
