Hello From Texas

Post by Tom Summers »

My wife and I have a small engraving business in East Texas. We started out mainly doing designs and projects for friends and family and then officially opened as a business in January of this year (2022). We have a 100 watt red and black 5070 (which has been the bane of my existence lately) and we just added a 50 watt JPT fiber laser. I am the type of person that likes to know "why" something does what it does and not just be told, what/how to do it. I really appreciate the thoroughness of Russ's videos and am ready to learn more from the community.

Thank you.
