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:

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

Is my CG correct?

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.

That is a skill that I simply HAVE to acquire.

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.
