[Lab] cheap laser cutters

I have one.. got it a few years back for around $800 with shipping and taxes.

Software that comes with it is terrible but has an ok integration with coreldraw so you can just laser from there.

Quality is good but really needs air. The lack of an adjustable table is a pain... bought that as an add-on after. Pretty much can count on at least $300 more to add those two things and could go much higher if you want to toss the electronics and put a real controller in there.

A friend of mine received one that had been smashed all up during shipping... only got money back for the price of the unit, not shipping so had to buy a standalone laser and bend all the steel back into place to get it running.
