Anyone here have expieriance with fiber engraving lasers? I am looking to get something in the "40 watt range" for engraving and stipling I have seen deals from $50 -$25,000 and it seems like a do all Chinese laser could be at my door for around $4500. A USA made laser is upwards of $10,000. I basically want to do mainly only gun stuff as I am working out a plan to get my FFL / SOT

Check out Glowforge. A fully kitted out version sells for about $6k, and I believe it's made in Seattle:

https://glowforge.com/order

I've had my eye on one of these, but haven't been able to convince myself to get one...yet.

I am by no means an expert ( that’s why I am asking here) but I have heard glow forge is way on the low end of the scale when it comes to production and deep engraving. But lasers are a lot like guns people will defend their favorites as well as bad mouth other good ones just to justify their $$ outlay.

I have no real skin in the game, this is just one that's caught my eye. I'm interested in the best bang for the buck, if you come up with something better, I'm all ears.

Just google search “ Chinese fiber lasers” literally no one even names them it is simply named by Coker of the machine’s once you google that you’ll have as much info as me.
