5-1-21 Finally was able to do some testing and do some test cups. This weekend will be uploading files and information on build.
I wanted a rotary engraving setup for my K40. I wanted the unit to be adjustable and use readily available components. If you have access to a 3d printer it is an easy build.
Independent adjustable left and right
Adjustable Z height
Will provide more pics, and the parts list after testing is performed.
Laser Rotary Attachment
