Got it together yesterday – Had to swap back to Marlin from Repetier. Seems Repetier does not play nice with the laser – it thinks it’s being clever and it executes the fan commands early, and changes the settings before it completes the next move command. Probably fine for 3D printing, but kind of wrecks havoc when it’s controlling a laser.

Trying to use 3DPBurner, but it seems the default wood setting of 3000mm/min makes my machine vibrate just a little too much – might need to adjust Marlin’s default acceleration settings some more.
