We have a Vytek FX/2 where I work, does some damn fine work, you might be able to find a used one in your price range. We've never had any issues with ours.

I got an email from Chewbarka Tags with a special August-only offer on an infrared laser engraver.  I submitted my information and got an email with some literature, but no price.   Then later in the day I got a call from a sales person letting me know that the normal price is $21....thousand dollars, but right now it's on sale for less than $18,000.

 

That's a complete system with laptop computer, software, and more.  It's an awesome looking system, super-duper fast, watching the videos it looks like magic, but do you have any idea how many $5 pet tags I would need to engrave to pay off an $18,000 engraver?   They did include a link to a finance company and they told me that I could finance it for as little as $300 per month...

 

So, if I buy the anodized aluminum pet tags in qty of 1,000 and get them for $0.60 each and can find a market for $5 engraved pet tags, I only need to sell 69 pet tags every month for 6  years to cover the cost of tags and engraver... and more if I actually want to earn a profit...   I just don't see that happening in a town of 25,000 people, and if I do online sales then I need to sell even more to offset the costs of online sales and shipping...   And it looked so cool, too...
