L-Cheapo - Built to Last Since 2014May 6, 2020
We had an interesting support ticket come in recently; an original L-Cheapo Mk1 needed a PWM adapter to be moved to a new machine. After running for six years, we thought this venerable laser deserved a salute. We donít play around when we guarantee our product for life. (We sent out a custom-designed PWM adapter, of course).
The L-Cheapo laser cutter attachment started out as an Indiegogo campaign in the first half of 2014. You can still see the historical campaign here. We raised almost $40,000 and by the end of August, all the lasers had gone out to our backers. It was a huge success, and it was not long before we started iterating on the design. Over the last six years, we have released seven versions of the L-Cheapo laser cutter, refining the design and riding the bleeding edge of laser diode advancement.
Our lasers are made in the USA: despite the pandemic, we have boards ready to go and are prepared to start shipping the L-Cheapo Mk7 immediately. Click Here to Order
