After a year of work saving and planning, on Friday my 'secret project' arrived - imported directly from the manufacturer in China. A 60w Laser Engraver/Cutter. The delivery driver placed it at the end of my driveway and departed.
The first thing was - OMG! It's huge! The pictures on the Internet really don't convey how big this thing is!
No, it's not a mail-order bride called Cathy
More photos after the jump!
Since I had to wait for help to arrive to bring it inside, I decided the only thing to do was to start unpacking it right there in my driveway.
Everything was well packed with no damage after it's trip half-way around the globe.
After some grunting and groaning and with the help of 4 additional people, it was finally inside. It's such a bulky machine, it took 5 of us to wrestle it into place.
All setup and connected to the PC
The laser tube is 1200mm long!

There's a couple more photos on Flickr.
