here is the disc that was offered with the package.  also the laser.  This size comes with a rolling cart with shelved to hold all the accessories.  also a pic of the screen I work from.  If you call or e-mail the main co.they will send you a brochure with prices.  a dealer will come to your home or guide you to a demo so you can spend time watching in person and ask questions.  there are lots of you tube stuff as well.  it is mesmerizing to watch.  just like a new truck, don't drive one if you do not want to buy one.

I have two.  Mine were much less, but like Doc said, you get what you pay for. 

1.  Epilog Summit (antique):  A backburner project, but despite offering almost no parts for this machine and having bought it used, Epilog support was first rate!  Great company!  (Dare I say the Woodmizer of laser engravers? ;D)
2.  ******(not going to name drop publicly):  US "supported" laser.  My current user.  Good to learn on as it was cheap ($2200 used).  12x20" work area with a drop out floorplate for larger surfaces.  Terrible to learn on as customer support is only available by billable hour.  Youtube and forums have been my friends to learn to run this thing.  They also wanted a $300 ownership transfer after 80 hours runtime since I did not buy it from them.  >:( >:( >:(   Got that taken care of without paying, though I had a week of downtime, and now have good results most of the time. 

This is my first paid project.  30 Christmas ornaments.  Printed straight from MS Word.  Did them on Baltic Birch disks from Hobby Lobby before I figured out vector cutting. ;)  Deadlines you know.  ;D

made a couple of squirrel feeders for some friends with a house in town, and one referred to as a cabin out at "the farm/shooting range" along the river.

did another honorable discharge paper for the neighbors Ron and Sharon.  The maple is easier to read than the origional and we will make one for anyone in the family who wants one.
