Some can still be sourced via ebay; http://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?_odkw=Occre+tram+kit&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=Occre+tram+kit&_sacat=0

Must have gone out of business...

Kind  of a long sad story, of how the original maker David C got ripped off by a copycat manufacturer.

For the tram try this link: http://www.occre.com/model-tram/san-francisco.html

As far as the laser cutter goes. It looks identical to the one Micro Mark sells. Reason? They are made by the same company in China. Take a look here and read about the problems many have encountered buying these cheap lasers.

http://www.cnczone.com/forums/general-laser-engraving-cutting-machine-discussion/

Just take a look at the subject lines and you can see these lasers are not trouble free.

Trev, I wish you and your buddy's luck with the laser.

Bernd

BTW they offer instalment plans to buy kits. This is scary....

Tom--

Thanks for the name correction!

Trev--

What are you and your partners going to do about an air compressor? Isn't a small one running flat out going to have too much pressure variation even with a regulator?
