These instructions apply for most any pump, and it sure helped me out.
I'm now running nearly silent in standby.  I always keep the water running, even when the laser is off, so I don't get any air bubbles building up.

Wow, I feel stupid.  Learning this software is something else.

I feel bad about having to 'acquire' corel draw, but LaserDrw, while it works, it doesn't import any worthwhile formats.  Sure, it does WMF, but it screws up the scale.

Got my machine aaand... aside from 2 screws that fell out, it's in really good shape. Even more suprising, the optics were aligned.

Hi all, I don't have my laser yet, (waiting on shipping stinks), but I'm trying to get everything all set for it.  I've ordered a new air assist head from lightobject, and an 18mm lens to go with it, I have the hose and compressor for the air assist, a 5 gallon bucket with lid, 3 gallons of distilled water and a jug of automotive coolant, laser safety goggles, and a whole mess of switches (for interlocks).

What I'm really wondering about is the 10k wirewound multiturn pot that I ordered to replace the stock pot.  I was lookign at datasheets on laser power supplies and they generally specified a 5k-10k pot, but it looks like these use a 1k pot.  Is the 10k going to be an issue?
from what I understand it's just being used as a voltage divider as a reference for the output power of the machine, so personally, I wouldn't think it too terribly critical.

It doesn't need the 2W rating - I am using a 100mW cermet trimmer. Remember that the power supply will produce more power than the laser tube will handle. I have my pot set to a maximum of about 50%. This gives a maximum laser current of around 18mA which is the upper limit for the tube. Any more than that and you shorten the life of the tube significantly

I've done that.  Still not as expected, so at this point I'm just writing down what works and what doesn't

Popped a fuse.  Damn.  Now I have to go buy a fuse >_>  I haven't a clue what size this thing takes.
