I got the Meterk 1500 because it has a cooling fan directly above the laser unit. I'm not sure if other brands have that or not, but there was a lot of discussion concerning cooling the unit down with external fans so it made sense to try the Meterk.

I also have the T Shadow & Co. rotary jig linked to above which has performed well and customer service has been fantastic too.

I really have not had any issues with the laser light - the glasses provided with the Meterk work just fine and help pinpoint the focus. Watching the laser while it is operating has not bothered my eyes.

Good luck!

Default In need of the software

Anyone got a link to download the original laser software in the thread? I had mine packed away for some time and need to do something...of course a new computer since storage of the laser...and I have no idea where the software is now. I've looked on truster...tried several downloads and none work. Ones I did get to install, would not allow me to "Drag Image" to burn. Of course the little laser has no id of model.

Thanks

Did you install the driver as well or just the burning software, you need both. Here is a link to the one on trusfer, if that doesn't work for you I can load mine to my website and you could download from there.

No cigar.

Everything loads and installs. When I try and "drag an image into the area"...I get the Red Circle.

OK, installed it now on w win7 computer. It all went fine this time, I could send the image into the software.

Now it traces out the size but when I click "Start", laser fires one point...then just returns to center.

Guess it's now junk :(

I had so much fun with it but I had it put into the closet until I recovered (heart attack in 2015). Just now getting out all the toys to play (lathe, laser ect).
