Lets replace the tube

I propose the random power value of 25 to use as a something for us to define when we buy a new tube. The laser now cuts at this value.

Here's my reasoning: If the original min power value is 10 and its maximum is 75 then the creep up to 25 suggests that its lost 23% of its cutting power value range. I propose a 23% loss is a good enough indicator to buy a new tube.

Proposed Purchase:


£500 (plus postage? websitse doesnt say, so £550 at a guess?)
