    Default Co2 Laser tubes ebay

    so... I nearly hit buy on one of these yesterday -

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/40W-CO2-U...YAAOSwal5YGs7p

    but at the last second bottled it!


    I came up with the idea of modding my cnc router to add aco2 laser to it. There are lots of co2 tubes on ebay at good prices, but there is a lack of matching psu’s.





    Im interested in an 80w tube like so –

    there are a couple of psu’s floating around like so -

    anyone have any experience?



    Also what would you need to get a co2 laser into a fibre? Andthen exit correctly the other end for cutting?



    I may decide this is all to much faff and just buy the 40wmachine

    Chris Short (Swamidog) built a laser cutter from scratch (including the X/Y gantry), and it's got a CO2 laser at it's heart. I'm sure he can give you some pointers.
