Hello all! This is my first post. My wife gave me the option to buy a tool i dont need but want for christmas. Id like to get an xcarve but i dont know that id really use it for the price. But!! If i add the laser engraver (https://jtechphotonics.com/?page_id=3565) i could see me getting 2 tools for 2k and id be ok with that. One reason id like a laser is for egraving pistols (a few glocks) and for the price of getting it done, i can buy the laser myself. Also, ive been seeing people stipple the glocks via a laser (obviously more accurate than a handheld soldering iron to a noob like me) so i was wondering if anyone has had experiance using the xcarv with a laser engraver on firearms or if i should be looking at something else. From what ive read this laser cant cut steel(which is fine) but should be able to engrave it.
Again i dont have one yet and am deciding what route to go.
Thanks for any advice!!
