    Raising and lowering the bed

    Hi all,

    I recently purchased a new cheap 60W Chinese laser cutter, and the up and down buttons aren't working. I'm pretty sure the reason they aren't working is because they are missing

    My question...since I don't know how long it will take to get a new control panel (one that at least sort of matches the eBay picture), is there a way to raise and lower the bed using software? For example, can I use laserdrw? I've searched through posts, and it seems most issues are because the buttons don't work, not because they are missing.

    Thanks!

    Is there a knob at one of the corners of the bed? You may not even have a motor for raising & lowering the bed. Check to see if there is a motor. You were either shipped the wrong machine all together or, the wrong photo was posted for the ad. Verify the info.

    Re: Raising and lowering the bed

    Hi Rick,
    Is there a screw in any of the corners of the work table? Normally in this type of machines height regulation is manual.
    Could you send more photos of the machine?
    Does the machine have screws for the table to go up or down?

    Best regards,

    Yes, the machine has a motor connected to a chain that encircles the 4 corner threaded rods. I was able to contact the seller, and they said I received the new design. This design has a toggle switch on the side for moving the bed up and down. Unfortunately, the motor only works in one direction, so they are sending me a new motor.

    I'm attaching more pics of the machine. Apparently, the toggle switch on the side is supposed to control the height-adjustment motor. The bad news is that the center point of the switch is extremely finicky, so the slightest bump activates the lifting of the bed. I ordered a pair of momentary switches, and they are working much better. Now I just have to wait for the new motor they're sending me since the existing motor only works in one direction.
