So after my recent unexplained optic alignment shift.
I decided to look to see what I could find for better mirror mounts. I knew CloudRay made the K series optic mounts that supposedly would fit a K40. On Amazon they were like $50-60 USD but on AliExpress I could get a set for $36. Then I found there was a CloudRay clone company called FireRay. I could get the apparent same set mounts for $24. Decided to give those a shot.
I know this set is not a true drop in replacement and will take some work to install.
Looks like I might need to print a new carriage plate for the laser head as it apparently sits up higher then current head. Several versions available on Thingiverse.
Even a laser cut version.
I’ll keep everyone posted after these arrive some time in the next month or so. If anyone has experience installing these in your K40 please feel free to chime in with any tips.
