Was aiming to replace the 35W laser tube on our machine it started to get weaker after 5 years of age and usage. I bought a new lasertube from Cloudray, but it looks it has some issues with the positioning of the electrode tube within the glass tube. Have seen many tubes, but not one with this kind of deviation.
Have contacted the seller in the interim, anyone in the Lightburn community has experience with this kind of anomaly? It’s inserted on an angle, so that it looks it could partially blocking the beam exit mirror. As well there seems to be a tiny haircrack in one of the glass water connections.
It’s a bit of work to dismantle a running machine which my wife uses for her business to replace a tube with a product which may be defective. The shipping was very quickly, in around one week. Any thoughts? Send it back?
