Either I'm mis-remembering or I have lost the reference that I thought I'd saved or I'm just going crazy. :D

I thought is was a kit from J-Tech.

I think J-tech only offers a 3.8w kit, IIRC the 5watt discussed was a hack with a Chinese laser.

We built our own (6W) and attached it to our Shapeoko 2.



Here is where you can purchase components to build one yourself.
