    I am thinking of adding laser engraving capabilities to my OX CNC. I just want to engrave wood (for now) I am looking at the laser engravers on ebay. How is the laser configured to use VCarve Pro and Mach3 to turn on and off? I also need to know what post processor to use. I'm using a Gecko G540 -4 stepper driver to drive my motors. http://www.cncrouterparts.com/gecko-g540-4-axis-stepper-driver-p-40.html) Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Check out DTR laser shop. He has some really good diode lasers for a reasonable price. I have one of his 6.5w lasers, it actually puts out more like 8W.

    Thanks, but I have ordered my parts already. I need to know how to connect them and set up Mach3.
