We would buy all of these tools again, more or less. The laser cutter and 3D printers have all been used extremely heavily for years and have held up very well.
(There are some tools that we bought that haven’t held up so well, but they have been omitted from this list.)
|Laser cutter||Universal||VLS 3.60|
|CNC router||Inventables||X-Carve 750mm|
|Dust collector||Laguna||P-Flux 1|

We have Dewalt DCB201 batteries for most of our cordless tools. Periodically, we test them by discharging them with a Makerhawk electronic load. The batteries are discharged at 3 A to 15.3 V. Their nominal capacity is 27.75 Wh (5 cells at 3.7 V x 1.5 Ah).
