Hello from north west London

Thought I would say hello and introduce myself - hi
I am head of faculty (art, Design, music, dance, drama and everything else they throw at me!) at a special needs school 11-19 in north west london. Myself, I am a practicing artist who enjoys the vertical learning curve of new technologies.
Within my technology dept we have embraced CAD/CAM and operate our own CNC milling machine running off Galaad software purchased 10yrs ago). We also have invested in several craft robo vinyl machines and have recently purchased a graphtec pro to develop pupils skills in vinyl cutting. Currently I am sorting out a purchase of a laser cutter - a Mercury 12w
I am hoping to gain more knowledge in the use of these machines and looking through the forums this appears to be the place to come.
Initial questions I have
1. any thoughts on the mercury 12w? we will need to engrave and cut acrylic, mdf, ply and if possible some material
2. we have come across conflicts with the graphtec and croftrobo when on a network, currently having to run graphtec pro and a stand alone although this is proving difficult in the transfer of work
Any feedback will be great fully appreciated as I have a lot more questions/need for advice
many thanks
paul

John I was kidding.
Most people at Sign UK last year never heard of Pennsylvania, or Pittsburgh.
But everyone knows where New York is.
(we're only one state under it)
