I bought a $50 tool stand from Grizzly.com and it came with a wooden table top. I have never secured the machine to the top but I might buy some u-bolts and attached it by put the bolts thru the wooden top.
If you need parts or accessories, try Stringway as the old LaSerFibre is now Stringway. If your machine does not have a brake, you can get one from Stringway for $12 in parts.
As a technicality, Laserfibre was always
Stringway. They weren't secretive about rebranding/partnering when they were selling the machines
Stock and prices were always linked to the exchange rate, and you had to call for price quotes
The brake tip is gold! I'll have to forward that info to a friend. The one issue I had with the machine was the complete omission of a brake. Even though the implemented brake is pretty discrete, it'll do.
