Laser Engraving
#8
  
I am in market for a small Laser Engraving machine.
I have seen so many machines on the market so it is confusing to make a decision.

Any one using such machines, what is your experience?
 I am not a computer geek so would  like to buy that will work with Windows 10 and easy to make designs,/programming

Let me know your thoughts.

Is your budget around $290. Then I have one I recommend

Yep. Have had one for a few months and been real happy with it

It does require a bit of assembly. 

There is a youtube video of assembly on that amazon page. Watch it to make sure you're up for it

I can post some examples if you wish (there is a recent post in woodworking where I did)

I have an Ortur Laser Master 2 that I would highly recommend.  There are a good number of resources out there on this particular laser that are helpful as you get into this space.  Happy to answer any questions you may have.

I am following along as I am interested in an engraver.  What do you see as the advantages to a laser engraver as opposed to a cnc router like this one?

Laser engravers work on a variety of materials that a CNC would not easily address.  I use my engraver on leather, tile, powder coated coffee mugs and tumblers, etc   I have a larger hobby CNC (Shapeoko) that i use with wood for templates, patterns, signs, etc. so I see them as complementing each other.
