I am a noobie and need to get some advice please. I got a K40 today from a courier and purchased the machine from eBay here in Australia.
On unpacking I noticed even though the box had a rip that no major issues but a couple of slight dings and scratches in the outer covers which is not a major concern but you always wonder what is going to be on the inside.The hose some squashing - not worried.
3 things I noticed and would appreciate any feedback / advice:
1 - the water tubes from the CO2 laser had water in them but were not plugged - is this normal or has it been tested / returned to supplier and then I got a second hand unit?
2 - there is a wider ribbon cable laying in the bottom next to the lhs of the gantry - where does this go to? there is no light in the back but guessing this is for control of the motors / sensor. Can someone confirm and maybe add some photos if possible as it has printed text on one side and blank on the other so guessing it maybe critical.
3 - my MAJOR concern is the lhs motor mount does not look standard and the laser reflector bracket kicks off so guessing this has had a knock on install at the factory. Can some confirm that this is not normal and any advice please.
any help would be very much appreciated while I am trying to remain calm …mmmmmm
ps was going to add a few photos but since being my first post I am not sure how to add them.
