That subject comes up on here every so often. Not heard of any results, but many ask about it. The ones at that price use a laser diode, not a laser tube. Are you sure you can focus it? The one video I saw, it burns one pixel at a time. If you buy it, please post the results so there is a reference on the site. The smallest wattage of a typical laser engraver is 25 watts. Most folks use a 60 watt or higher if they are cutting the inlay kits. The one you saw is really on the verge of being a toy. Tiny stepper motors, tiny work surface, even more tiny laser source. Also if you get it, wear laser protective eye care. With no enclosure around it, a reflected laser source can hurt your eyes.
