[Noisebridge-discuss] Moar Laser Cutter Infos

Also, another (kinda cool) option would be to simple hook a parallel port supporting laptop up to this thing and see what happens (assuming the software supports it).  We could get a DB25 cable and hook up a T40 for example (once I work on the mainboard a little).

 Hi
 All,
 I just spoke with Full
 Spec and they said as it's EoL it's $750 for a new
 board and converter.
 The support tech did admit it's
 just a USB to parallel converter: I'm going to venture
 this might solve the hardware problem: https://www.cdw.com/shop/products/C2G-USB-to-DB25-IEEE-1284-Parallel-Adapter-Cable-parallel-adapter/1282038.aspx

 Thanks for reply Eric!
 
   What's your skill set right now?  that would be a
 good place to start. Right now it needs:
 
 
 
 1) someone to bug the manufacturer and see costs and
 possibility of replacement parts (via links i posted
 below)
 
 2) hacking a new controller board which is likely parallel
 to USB adapter (Henner seems to know about this)
 
 3) order new transistors for the power pcb (once i take it
 apart to diagnose- might need to bring it home where my good
 equipment is for that)
 
 4) taking out the controller board that is there and writing
 down part numbers to reverse engineer as much as we can.
 
 
 
 and 5) googling for more info / replacement parts!  people
 are still selling these around if you dig.  maybe we can
 find another unit cheap.

  Hi Zach
 
  and the Laser Cutter folks,
 
  My name is Eric, Mitch told me after
 
  I stopped by for the first time in years that some
 things
 
  needed love after I asked about the status of a few
 pieces
 
  of key equipment. Focusing on the laser cutter I was
 curious
 
  if there was anything I could do to help, and figure
 out
 
  what was blocking at this time.
 
  Nice to meet
 
  you,-Eric.

  So I brought this up at the meeting tonight and then I
 
  did more research.  Found some more useful info.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  model #: MLR-40 
 
 
 
 
 
  40w Full Spectrum Laser
 
 
 
 
 
  Manufacturer website:

  And here are the pictures I took:

  Here is the controller board we are missing:

    (manual)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  There is a second hand one for $1500 we could raise
 money
 
  for.  That way we have this one for parts.  That's
 one
 
  option.
 
 
 
 
 
  Im going to try emailing the manufacture to see what
 
  replacement costs would be.
