What kind of machine are you running. I never looked at laser welders before I saw your post, seems like the sky is the limit on price, but I know nothing about them, nor have I ever met somebody with any experience with one. Edumacate us pleaseI do production work on it, and some mold/die repair. Might try to find more work for it soon, but considering I’m in the middle of trying to purchase a cnc machine shop, the laser welding might take the back burner.
Im surprised other companies don’t laser weld there bolts, it looks so much cleaner and consistent and doesn’t put heat into the part like TIG.
what machine did you get? I’ve been looking at the 160 ever last machineI just picked up a little DC Tig welder to do this type of work. Mostly for other projects. Spent a hour on it this weekend and like it better than my mig. Takes a bit to get use to but I picked it up quick. Good looking welds, less filler and a bit less heat for small things. I mostly do sheet metal welding.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
