    As a retired Paramedic,  and often in a fast response car, the idiots I encountered were mind boggling!!! We eventually had cameras installed before my own RTC. And everytime we encountered dangerous driving,  we would mark it for the police later, before that we just took a number plate and called it in. 👹👹👹👹👹👹

    Marking metals is going to cost you serious money.
    Laser £5-10k minimum.
    2 axis writing head using galvos and software maybe £3k
    Focussing optics + other stuff required £2k
    Proper industrial laser marking systems can cost you 5 - 10 x this amount - hence the budget comment earlier.
    Suggest staying clear of Chinese lasers; think about after sales & service issues.
    There was a very good industrial laser manufacturer that specialised in marking etc based in Rugby, England called JK Lasers.
    They became Lumonics ( Canadian owned ) but a few years ago changed back to JK.
    They used to publish application notes on laser marking and engraving.
    There is / was(?) an association of industrial laser users called 'AILU' who was run by Mike Green from an address in Oxfordshire.
    Lots of different industrial lasers nowadays - diode-pumped solid-state, fibre lasers, fibre coupled laser diode, femtosecond etc etc.

    Yep, but it's ok. I am not in need or desperate for money. I have alot of pieces which I will list. 
    The Proof cost me over £120,
    Space red was about £140
    Multi metals £140
    Blue £140
    Anx finally the BU £25.
    Total= £565.00
    Not to mention the hassle to get them, or the waiting etc. 
    So happily withdrawn.

    Cutting and engraving are for industrial lasers which can be expensive ( or not depending on your budget ).
    If plastics and wood you can use a carbon dioxide laser with 10-25 Watt output but for metals you need to look at much more expensive solid-state like Nd:YAG and fibre lasers.
    These tend to be q-switched meaning they operate at extremely high peak powers in the Megawatt region, to ablate material rather than heat it, but very short pulses at high repetition rates with mean powers of several watts.

    jonrms reacted to Goldmick in High power lazers   
    Im not sure what you need to cut. The beam is easy to adjust and the gold one should be able to be mounted im not gunna lie im not sure about cnc stuf but its a strong lazer i would say its good for plastic and the darker the stuf you can burn is easier

    Thank you for the heads up.
    It appears we have uploaded the incorrect photo. The photo uploaded is indeed of the replica Guinea which was taken when we received it into stock in 2009. We will update the page to show the correct photo. You can see the photo was originally used on our old website here http://taxfreegold.co.uk/saudiarabia.html with the correct caption.
    I will also check stock for replica Saudi Arabia Guineas if anyone is interested, and post the outcome in due course.
