The mounting procedure is very easy it is only a matter of removing the spindle and connecting the laser head. I have designed the head to use a standard cat5 cable for power and control. As far as wiring to the Arduino there are only two wires a grnd and power.
If view the kickstarter the main video shows the spindle being swapped out.

Wow, that's awesome. I don't have the cash to kickstart anything at the moment, but I'll definitely be looking for a kit at retail later. Thank you!
