Welcome to the new Concise RDWorks Learning Lab Series with Russ Sadler.
In this Introductory Session, Russ gives his reasons for starting this new series and his plans for how it will proceed. The Concise RDWorks Learning Lab Menu can be found here.
Over the last 6 years, Russ has built up a formidable YouTube following for his RDWorks Learning Lab series which currently has over 200 videos.
The original RDWorks Learning Lab series on his “Sarbar Multimedia” YouTube Channel, follows Russ as he tries to make sense of his new Chinese laser machine and to sort out the truths, half truths and outright misleading information that is available on the web.
Six years later with over 4 million YouTube Views under his belt, Russ has become the go to resource for everything related to the Chinese CO2 laser user or wannabe user.
In this new series, Russ has condensed his knowledge and experience of the last 6 years to provide valuable information and insights into the purchasing, understanding, use, repair and maintenance of the Chinese CO2 laser machines and their key component parts.

Session 00 – Introduction Transcript
00:00:06,210 –> 00:00:12,320
The concise RDWorks Learning Lab series with Russ Sadler.
00:00:12,320 –> 00:00:19,280
Introduction. As you can see I’m old, I’m grey, I’m fat, I’m ugly.
00:00:19,280 –> 00:00:27,440
Those are just some of the gifts that God has given me. I’m also a retired engineer if engineers ever retire.
00:00:27,440 –> 00:00:32,690
But when I started my retirement, I also started playing with these Chinese laser machines.
00:00:32,690 –> 00:00:37,930
Now, here I am on vacation beside the river and.
00:00:37,930 –> 00:00:42,190
I’ve left my laser machines back in my workshop.
00:00:42,190 –> 00:00:48,340
I thought now would be a good time to sit down and do something I’ve been promising to do for years.
00:00:48,340 –> 00:00:57,370
It was never my intention to set up a business. I only ever wanted to play with these laser machines and try and understand the technology.
00:00:57,370 –> 00:01:08,830
I found out very quickly that there was a lot of black magic, myth’s, blatant untruths and a huge amount of misunderstanding about this technology.
00:01:08,830 –> 00:01:16,150
So I decided to set forth the whole series of videos to try and document my learning journey.
00:01:16,150 –> 00:01:25,450
And I always promised myself one day I would sit down and try and condense all of my learning into a series of very
00:01:25,450 –> 00:01:33,820
short videos that would enable newcomers to quickly grab hold of all the things that’s taken me six years to learn,
Session 00 – Introduction Transcript (Cont…)
00:01:33,820 –> 00:01:39,520
although I’ve acquired skills in different types of laser machine, for instance,
00:01:39,520 –> 00:01:46,180
an RF laser radio frequency controlled laser machine and also fiber laser machines.
00:01:46,180 –> 00:01:52,270
We’re going to limit these learning sessions to the CO2 Chinese laser machine.
00:01:52,270 –> 00:01:58,570
Now, there is no intention in these sessions to tell you how to run your machine.
00:01:58,570 –> 00:02:02,440
This is not a manual for using a machine. What this is,
00:02:02,440 –> 00:02:11,980
it’s a series of sessions which will break down the machine so that you can understand the various parts of the technology and how they work.
00:02:11,980 –> 00:02:17,560
Now, these are essential building blocks that I didn’t have when I started. I’ve had to acquire them little by little.
00:02:17,560 –> 00:02:24,520
So what I’m trying to do now is to put them into a logical order that will enable you to understand the technology.
00:02:24,520 –> 00:02:27,010
Basically, what I’m going to do is I’m going to give you the bricks,
00:02:27,010 –> 00:02:31,390
the doors and the windows, and I’m going to tell you go forth and build your own house.
00:02:31,390 –> 00:02:39,978
So let’s make a start with session one.
