Laser head and nozzle info

Postby Gene Uselman » Mon Jan 09, 2017 10:40 am

A month or so ago I was talking with someone (Dustin? ) about laser heads / tubes / nozzles / extensions and particularly this one from aliexpress. Being the adventurer that I would like to be :D I ordered one, advertised at 25mm tube- which is very close to the tube in my large machine- but about a half mm larger as it turns out. Nothing ventured, ya'know how that goes. Anyway the tube is threaded at both ends for the lens (and it turns out mine is too- have taken it out countless time in the last year) and the threads are the same on both tubes so I can use my old tube. The upper position is about 100mm or 5inches so I am not sure how useful that will be. Anyway- we know more now, right? Gene

BTW this is available with at 21mm tube as well

How long is the actual tube ? The stock one on my machine is only about 60mm long and I'd like to get something thats about double that length.

I have some oddly shaped objects that I'd like better access to when engraving through my pass through.

Thanks
Don

The tube is 3.625- that is without the nozzle or extensions which add about 3/8" each. The nozzle (less threads) is 1.25". Gene
