Maximum Feedrate is 500mm/s for engraving, and 50mm/s for cutting, above those speeds it may skip or jump position and ruin your work
Absolute minimum power appears to be between 1.5 and 1.75
Absolute Maximum power should be 18mA on the meter, this is around 7-8 on the dial. do not exceed this value as it drastically shortens the lifespan of the laser tube.
