    Hi Indyglassman. I need to apologize to everyone on this thread as well as Boss engravers. I did not visit Boss engravers and was confuse with Gboss who I did visit.
    Sometimes I don't read the threads properly before I reply. I hope this won't happen again.

    Nice and close, 8 psi and a 1mm exit hole.(2mm standoff from the job) and no scorching either side

    Adding HPG (High Pressure Gasses) aren't really of much use, the entire Gas system of the cheaper Chinese machines aren't made to work with Nobel / Mixed gasses so the consumption cost of using them is HUGE.

    I guess this is why so many are buying the Glowforge made here in America and easy to use with the new camera design inside and software. The Muse Spectrum looks interesting too but I bet its Chinese built for them. I might have to just go with a Glowforge since the other American companies don't have its features and want more money.

    The glowforge is more cheap chinese junk too . All you that are waiting will be in for a big surprise. Most of it is made in China and then brought here for assembly. Don't believe everything you read at GF forum. When and if the machine gets shipped and its a big if you will find that not half of what was promised will probably not be. I hope I'm wrong but all indications are that it will change a lot.Maybe you will get a machine like what most laser cutters are. These are not 3d printers like DS says anyway there just an engraver cutter.

    Still like to see the other laser companies use the camera idea in their systems and have software to use it.

    The camera is a good idea but getting it to work the way its suppose to could be a challenge.

    Most of the laser have a camera add on if you want to pay for it.
