Having access to 4 watt and 5 watt diode laser cutters, I was excited to see how powerful a 10 watt system would be. The Endurance Laser website made some big claims and I built my MPCNC Lowrider2 with this laser in mind. Unfortunately, my experience has not been positive and I can only conclude from the 20+ hours I’ve put into testing that this product does not match what is advertised.
This laser was provided at a discounted price of US$300 by George from Endurance lasers to make a video guide/review. It cost me another ~AU$50 to send the first defective unit back to Russia. All opinions expressed are my own.
The video is so long because I’m trying to give this product every chance at success before forming a negative opinion. I hope it is clear from viewing that I have tried to be fair in testing the laser against the advertised claims on the website.
I emailed George several times during my testing to ask for help with issues and point out my concerns. I emailed a final time on Sunday 18th August with an exhaustive list of my concerns as outlined in this video. This was to give him a chance to address anything he felt was unfair or incorrect. He acknowledged receipt but has not addressed any of my points.
My plan to salvage this investment is to source a G7 lens with a longer body locally, and create a proper air assist system. I will also keep reading to see the maximum current and voltage I can safely run the laser at.
