The laser is this one (Based on a NUBM44 diode) : http://optlasers.com/en/home/78-clh-5000-engraving-laser-head.html
Since I’m using a Kress spindle the 43mm laser head fits in the same mount.
I don’t have any more pictures yet, the wires and driver is tied on with zip ties at the moment 😀

I did not use blower assist for that test, the seller claims that its able to cut 10mm plywood so I figured 6mm should be easy 🙂
After checking I realized that I was actually using the 3 element lens and not the included single element lens (some kind of aspherical lens, not G2), the results might be even better with that one.
