DIY article how to fix your laser headHP Persson
If you want to do the upgrade yourself, here is the article for you!
And here is why you want to upgrade your laser head
The screws bend and rust/oxidize and get stuck very easy (brass). New from steel will work much better.
The harder springs will prevent the mirror from vibrating in higher engraving speeds
The oring will stop air from leaking out from the nozzle
Hot glue on the air assist inlet will stop any leaks
Bigger hole is because the laser beam is wider than stock hole, with 4mm you dont heat up the nozzle and easier to align the beam vertically.
What you need
3x M3x15mm screws
3x 20-25mm hard springs (buy them from 3D-printer stores, they are enough)
1x 12mm OD oring
Hot glue or super glue
4mm drill bit + a bigger one for deburring
