    Hi Rick,

    Sure has been a long time! I vaguely remembered that name, but now I will have to forget it again...

    I got your email and now I better understand your situation. There are a lot of "fly by night" suppliers in China and you will get junk if they think it is a one time sale. My choice for selecting Bodor lasers came after looking at many factories and then making my decision. I do have an advantage of having an employee close to the factory and being able to screen the parts relatively easily. I will be stocking common parts soon for my model laser, and I can look into the power supply information with China tonight about your power supply problem. You are on the west coast so probably I can call you tonight before it is too late if I get a quick answer back.

    We will talk soon.

    Regards,
    John

    Thank you John, Appreciate it. I look forward to speaking with you. Sorry to stir the pot...LoL!! Just remember ber that there isn't much worth remembering!

    An 80 watt tube will cut 3/4 plexi / acyrlic well. I suspect that a 110 watt tube will do an even better job.

    Have you considered offering a 150-180 watt set up that will cut thin mild steel materials?

    For those of you with Novakon's Bodor Lasers, have any of you changed out the Final focal point Lens from the standard?

    Interested in the process to do that. We've taken the tube off of ours and it looks pretty easy to change, but obviously if you change the focal length, then the spacing that you adjust the red tube to the material is going to have to change.

    Did you get a different tube?
    What is the focal length of the standard lens?

    Thanks in advance,
    Scott...

    It is very easy to change from the supplied 63MM (2.5 in lens to the 101MM lens If you look at the tube, it is threaded on both ends the 101 mm lens installs in the opposit end of the tube.
    it is a long thread you just remove the 63mm and insert the 101mm in the other end of the tube,
    make sure the flat side of the lens if facing the work, drop in the o ring and screw the retaining ring down to snug the lens.
    If you have any more questions or would like a pic or two for clarification let me know

    Thanks Ray,

    With the 2.5 (63mm) lens we use a 8mm spacer between the end of the tube and the material. Do you use a 46mm spacer with the 101 lens? (101mm - 63mm = 38mm + 8mm = 46)
