    Default New guy... Where to Start?

    Hey y'all, new here.

    I am interested in starting to do laser engraving, primarily for firearms.

    Forgive me if this is one of those "every other day" questions, I'm on my phone and didn't see a sticky or have any success with searching.

    What I'd like to do is start as cheap as possible, out of my garage. As time progresses and I am able to reinvest, have an actual workshop setup, etc. etc. I have an addiction to gadgets and tools, so quality equipment (aka overkill New guy... Where to Start?) is definitely on the horizon, but just not budgeted for yet.

    So where do I start? 30w fiber? Dedicated PC, software, accessories, ventilation, etc?

    Thanks a lot. Again, sorry if this is constantly asked and addressed. Perhaps there's already a thread y'all can point me to?

    The first place to start is getting your federal firearms license

    FFL is a given, thank you though. That would be disastrous without it. I'm a gun fanatic, so everything in that aspect is by the book and overdone. Gun nuts typically never jeopardize their ability to exercise their rights.

    What I am looking for is assistance with the ewuipment. I know very little. I am a self starter, quick learner, and research junkie, just need a push in the right direction and also hoping to get the advice of those with experience.
