Absolutely, but I’ll clarify that the router is actually still on there, and the laser is just an add-on. It sits to the right of the router, affixed to the top two screws of the DeWalt router clamp.
I initially bought the JTech 2.5A driver, JTech high resolution lens, and an DTRs Laser Shop NUBM44 laser. The 2.5 amp driver was never going to be enough for this incredibly powerful diode laser, so when I stumbled upon somebody selling their 5 amp kit on eBay, I purchased it.
Wiring was pretty simple. I did not purchase the full kit from JTech since I figured I could source the molex Jr connectors and wiring for cheaper, which worked out just fine because the JTech driver only really requires connectors for fans, the rest can be screwed in.
JTech has a pretty solid graphic on how to wire it, but ultimately it’s really simple. The driver connects to my x controller via the spindle PWM. The laser is connected to the driver. The fans are connected to the driver. And a large laptop sized power brick is connected to the driver.
I started using laser web 4, as it’s a stellar and free software. Had no issues using it, but saw LightBurn as a reasonably cheap upgrade, since the gcode version that we would use for our machine is only 40 bucks.
Amazingly, JTech also has a full write-up in their blog on how to connect and what settings to use for connecting LightBurn to your machine.
I realize this is wordy, and not terribly specific. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
