      Hello Group!! The K40 Co2 laser machine Project is Alive!!!


      Here is my current idea that came across my mind after getting my K40 laser machine.
      Note: Do not attempt to make or build this or a similar machine if you are not familiar with CO2 laser machines, this is not a toy, this thing can harm you or even kill you.

      I decide to get another one to just take it all appart and do something more usable working area wise using every single stock part of it but of course noy the X Y stage frame that is the current limitation of this machine not only by the size but also the poor quality of it (that crap is not square and to small)

      Based on what I haved learned in my previous builds i was able to accomplish what I wanted using the vslot linear rail system.

      The machine is build using 95% of the K40 stock parts, the only main part discarted was the X Y stage for obvious reasons, so lets frame it, make it bigger, thanks to @joetemus for many great ideas that I'd discussed with him also thanks to @Peter Van Der Walt on some safety recommendations that i saw across my investigation prior to start the build.

      Sorry but English is not my primary language,,, I'll do my best on it cheers
