K40.se is a very popular for user who are going to buy a K40 laser, or already bought one.
We are missing out on some of the work with the setup and we thought buying a K40 from scratch, testing it, installing it for the first time, fix all issues and after that upgrade it to 100% perfection was a fun idea to document.
We have ordered a K40 and got it delivered Dec. 9th.
