One of the motors in the machine went bad. We have ordered a replacement, expected to arrive on Tuesday. We will install it when it arrives and get the machine running again as soon as possible.

The laser cutter is back in service. The problem turned out to be bad wiring to the X-axis stepper motor. We fished some new wire through, and it works again.
