Want a $160 Laser Engraver?

The Wainlux K6 is a compact, powerful, simple-to-use laser engraver. It’s also incredibly low-priced at around $160 for an Early Bird pledge.

I don’t know about you, but just about every project I build could benefit from at least a little laser engraving (some would benefit from a full-blown industrial laser cutter, but that’s a story for another day). Well, my chum Charles Pfeil just sent me an email with links to this video and this Kickstarter project along with the subject line, “It seems to me that this is a ‘Max Must Have’ gadget!”  
As we see from the video and the Kickstarter, the Wainlux K6 is a compact, powerful, simple-to-use laser engraver. It’s also incredibly low-priced at around $160 for an Early Bird pledge. I’m obviously not alone in wanting one of these little beauties, because they’ve already raised more than $800,000, which isn’t too shabby when you consider that their original goal was a tad over $10,000 and — at the time of this writing — there are still 14 days to go. Money is a tad short at the moment. I’m manfully trying to fight the temptation. What about you? Could you be enticed by one of these little beauties?

Seems tempting. One question- from the video you just plonk the laser mechanism on top of the target- I can’t see any process or aids to align the print/graphics so that the appearance on the front of a piece of equipment, say, is rectilinear.
