  • Hi B'ville - As author of the tutorials posted on the forum I was also looking for a way to make them easily accessible again but having tested Ruffle out your suggestion is much easier to use than mine.

    Over the next 24 hrs I'll edit the original posts to include the info on the Ruffle...

  • Melanie, Tim - thanks for the replies and the useful information which I'll certainly take note of.

    Melanie - I've already tried the borax tip and it does make a very big difference to the intensity of the engraving which is a positive, the negative is that it emphasizes errors in the engraving....

  • Another thing - I just realized when looking again at this engraving that its not just the tail of the 'p' which is not aligning up. The letters M and E below are also out of alignment compared to their positioning in the Lightburn design layout.

    @Rolf and interested folk - engraver update

    A couple of weeks ago I posted a thread in this section about the new toy I was buying, namely an Atomstack X70 Pro 10W laser engraver/cutter. Having now returned to my home base from my US trip and with Easter vacations out of the way I finally got to play a little with it.

  • Thanks guys for the compliments and appreciation of this post. As you can probably tell, I found the history behind the screw pile lighthouses fascinating and now have another gem of trivia wedged into some obscure corner of my brain to regurgitate at any opportune moment in the future.

  • Hi - You can fold the sandpaper in two with the abrasive side facing outwards. The idea is to lightly sand the clamp faces to remove any 'polish' effect they can get on the surfaces which clamp to the blade.

    Ref tilting the table. There is no fixed angle. I just find 7 degrees is ok for...

  • Be brave Carole! - instead of using an aluminum bar against the top of the chuck as in the video use a short length of hard wood about 1" x 1" in cross section that you can hit sharply with a hammer. Before doing this spray the top of the chuck taper with some WD40 the night before and also...

  • I also have a 788, however, mine has a home made MDF tabletop after the original got lost in luggage whilst I was traveling overseas. A long story which I'll not go into.

  • Hi Jim - I stopped at a small place in Hatteras village to have a very late breakfast - can't recall the name - where I ate clam chowder.
