We found a dealer in the UK who imports the cheap Chinese laser
cutters and provides spares for them. We bought a 40W, 800x600mm
(24x32") model for less than a third the cost of the equivalent Epilog

We have had a couple of problems with it, but primarily due to cooling
issues which were our fault.
