Finless Bob is a cool dude with a great sense of humor. He has a couple more funny ones, but most of his vids are how to and information vids. His vids are clear and easy to understand.
He has a set of Swift build videos that I am going to follow when I receive my Swift NX 550.

Best build tip I ever got wasn't about building, it was about clean-up:

White vinegar dissolves Bondo off your hands like magic. Turns out, the stuff hates epoxy and polyester resins!

Define "normal laser"? Industrial applications are the most common use of laser technology, and a CNC cutter would certainly qualify.

I meant in australia that getting hold of any laser, dangerous or otherwise, is pretty hard these days.

My Dad's advice was to buy a tool only when you need it, because your most expensive tool is the one you use the least.

A good habit to get into is to put everything away after a job is completed even if you are about to start another. Nice to always start with a clear bench.
