    1. How are your setups working any changes?
    2. Is the 2 watt laser adequate for most work or should I go with 2.8?
    3. Do you have any additional comments that would help in installation, setup or use?
    I'm about to add my new 2.8w to my Pro4824 as well, but I'm still working out the details. I think I have the right connectors and parts and hope to have some time soon to put it together.

    Not a j-tech or CRP-800 but you get the idea. A clamp around the bottom of the spindle, off to one side another clamp for the laser. I 3D printed mine but if you don't have access to one there's no reason you couldn't use the CNC to carve the same kind of thing out of an HDPE chopping board from the two dollar shop.
