I am using this to engrave Tactical Velcro Patches. So far so go---- The machine took about two weeks to get here from China, They could put a 1.4 inch grid on the engraving platform,, would be nice when setting up material. But I made one and set in up. So far so good--
I've been using my Neje 1000mW laser engraver for a few weeks npw. It has been absolutely sterling. No problems at all. I use it primarily to monogram custom wooden pens, but also have used it to make leather bookmarks, wooden tags, etc. It has its limitations because it is very low power...only one watt...so it will not burn plastics or metal, but it does a very great job on wood, cardboard, leather, etc. I have even used it to cut veneer. It can't burn on anything taller than an inch, and it's maximum burn size is about 1 1/4" square. Given those limitations, it does an excellent job at what it CAN do, producing clean, clear engravings. It's software is super simple to use, and you can import any black and white jpg file into the software and burn it on to wood. You just create your graphic, or use clip art. Drag and drop it into the Neje software and you are all set. The unit is powered off the usb port on a computer, so there is no power supply. (I run mine off an old XP laptop!) You have to focus the laser each time you change the distance between the laser and the work, but it is easy to focus...just turn the knurled ring on the laser until you get the smallest possible light on the work. It will "preview" the burning area by drawing a rectangle around the area that will be burned so you can position your object in exactly the right place before burning. I recommend taping a piece of graph paper on the bed so that you can make sure your item is straight and square before burning. You will want to use a little desk fan or something similar to blow the smoke away while it is burning to get the clearest possible image. I use a little six inch desk fan and it works fine. You don't want to look at the laser while it is burning because it can damage your retina, but the software shows the progress of the burn by changing color on the computer screen as it burns. You can also pause the burn at any point and examine the work, then resume the burn. If it isn't quite dark enough, just click on "recarve" to go over the pattern again. You can increase or decrease the burn time to adjust the darkness and depth of the burn.I just bought another one for my 11 and 15 year old grandsons for Christmas.
Makes my product look great! Also, you can't beat the price!
