40W CO2 Laser Engraving/cutting Machine Help/Training


New User
I am new to laser cutting and right off have some issues. I would like to get some training. Any ideas? I have a $400 chinese laser ( 40W CO2 Laser Engraving Machine). I have no illusions that this machine will do what I would like to do but I thought this was a good way to learn without laying out a bunch of money.

I live in the Fort Mill, South Carolina/Charlotte, North Carolina area and would be willing to travel. Any online classes?

If you can't find anybody else to help, my neighbor (not a member here) has one. I can put you in contact with him. We're up on Lake Norman.

I think I watched every You Tube video on this type of laser. I power up the machine and it comes on ( the lights, fan, pump, but not the laser itself. Not sure if something is wrong with the laser or if I am doing something wrong. This morning I did get a email from Suncoo and they asked for a video of me booting the machine up. Lets see how that goes.

Thanks for all the feedback.
