A K40 Traitor am I ?
After many years true my K40, I blame my MAAD* for falling prey to a sale on a 20W laser diode machine. I am now down the Vigotec VG-L7-X rabbit hole.

My Vigotec Expectations & Plan
- Build it…stock
- Get the stock configuration working and characterize its abilities
- Create documentation for the unit; controller schematic, stepper wiring, laser diode wiring & control
- Convert/flash the unit's controller to Laser GRBL
- Drive it with Lightburn
- Design and add safety and laser protection features
- Design enclosure and lift mechanism so it can be used in a portable mode
- Put in use, maybe engrave my yet-to-materialize electric dulcimer.
