    Default OMTech Laser opinions wanted

    So I have had a little K40 for years, I've done several modification to it and it works pretty good. I'll link a couple of videos of it. I've made a lot of good quality cool items with it !

    But now I'm looking for a larger machine, I was thinking about the Boss LS1420 50 watt at around $4500+

    but then started looking at the OMTech MF2028-60 at about $2800 seen here: https://www.amazon.com/Orion-Motor-T...854038&sr=8-27

    I would like to get some opinions on this machine and company please, would I be wasting my money by going with the OMTech or is this a decent machine ? I can easily fix almost any quality control issues, such as tightening and aligning, replace electronics, motors, etc.

    Or should I just pay more for the Boss Laser with smaller cutting area and 50 watt tube ?

    Any info on this is appreciated.

    A couple of videos from my little K40...

    I’m looking at those same Omtech machines, the 80-100w range. What little I’ve learned is that Omtech seems to be the only ChiCom company that has a presence here in the US that offers a small modicum of support for what they sell. There is more info over on Reddit, try r/ChineseLaserCutters or r/Laserengraving.
    Cheers,
    Spike

    Did you ever end up purchasing one of the OMTech offerings? I've been stuck in the Analysis Paralysis mode for a few weeks now trying to sort through the myriad options of CO2 lasers out there. I have heard/read some folks say that it's best to purchase OMTech lasers directly from their website (omtechlaser.com) rather than from eBay or Amazon. Something about warranty and shipping. And then there are those that brave the direct-from-China importation which can save a few bucks on the transaction as well.

    P.S. - And I'm guessing your avatar is a still from the 1967 film Cool Hand Luke. "Boss Godfrey" played by Morgan Woodward.

    If you can return through Amazon, that is probably a good way to go, just know what to check and what the return policy would be.
