Upgrade the laser?
Is it possible to upgrade the laser module to something more like 2W? All the higher powered laser modules seem to be square when the 500mw is round. The photos seem to show that the mount for the laser/motor on this mill has round holes... perhaps there is an optional part that allows for the higher powered lasers to be used?
@gNerd The 2500 and 1600mW are round, or really close once focused. Yes you can upgrade, no problem.
Sorry, I meant the housing of the laser. The hole in the mill that holds the laser module is round but the body of the lasers greater than 500mw are square.
@gNerd Oh I see, well in that case you've got a problem. Square peg in a round hole... perhaps you could make a different mount?
Right. The gist of my question was whether or not anyone knows of a replacement part that will fit the other lasers.
If I have understood well, you have this machine, with a round slot for the laser.
Maybe if you were contacting the manufacturer and asking him to send you the two plexiglas from this accessory.
Of course, in communication, they are not very good, but you do not miss anything to try. If I were in your position, I would buy it to have spare parts like the motor.

That looks like it could be the solution. Thanks!
If I use 1000 value(5volt) for laser x-stepper lose steps... I must use 500 2.5v have you the same problem?
