Omtech 60W CO2 with Ruida 6442B/C
I know this has been discussed adnausium (spelling).
I am losing power on my laser. Haven’t cleaned mirrors. Bought almost two months ago but not used heavily as in eight hour days six or seven days per week.
I suspect the mirrors need cleaning. Would someone point me to the best method?
Don’t want a fancy method just tell me how to do it or give the link to the directions.
My very old hands and fingers aren’t as steady as they used to be but I have no doubt I can do the job.
Also: The nozzle of my laser head collects some char on the end of it, expected. When I adjust the height I usually allow the plastic guide I use to scrape char off. Do I dare use anything to probe the bottom of nozzle to clean any little bits of char that may be in the end of nozzle? Don’t with to screw up the focus lens.
My laser has the little diaphragm air pump which seems to do a good job when I am not burning something deep into substrate. I get more smoke in the cabinet than I would like. I have the built in 6" exhaust fan, an inline 6" exhaust fan, and a 16" exhaust fan in a cube where all are exhausted to the outside of the building. The smoke clears out in a minute or two and quicker when I open the cover. I do clean the plastic cover on the machine most every day. Should I just connect my large wood shop air compressor to the line going to the head and adjust the airflow, I have separators and air controls on everything. I could easily adjust pressure to laser.
