Hey guys,
I’m a beginner. Quite confused with this: What is actually the difference between K40 and K50 in term of cutting? I wanted to cut wood and acrylic as well, so which one is better option. Does K40 good enough.

Thanks

K40 vs. K50 is mostly just power level (40 watts vs. 50 watts). The K40 will cut 3mm plywood in a single pass, and I believe it can also cut 3mm acrylic in a single pass (I haven’t tried that yet).

@James_Rivera thank you for your response!

You get more power with a K50 over a K40, but also typically a larger cutting area since tube length scales directly with power. I’ve cut upto 1/4" (6mm) ply in one pass with my K40. Just depends on what you want to do as far as what thickness of materials you want to cut and how big of a work area do you need. If you can afford the K50 you can never go wrong with more power and more work area IMHO.
