Need help with the “Beam Buddy”

Machine: k40 with a cohesion 3D controller

Board: Cohesion 3D

Firmware: Smoothie

Problem/ Question:So I purchased the beam buddy over 2 weeks ago and I finally installed it because I couldn’t find a hose to fit. It ended up being some weird size that I found at a local hardware store (hose size is 2/32’’ in case anyone’s interested in knowing). The other issue that I’m still trying to figure out is focusing the laser. I tried to line method but all I’m getting is a rather wide line with no apparent focus point or rather meeting of the two cones to find the “sweet spot”. Anyone else having issues or found a fix for this with the beam buddy laser attachment?

Did you provide those pictures? We need pictures to understand your setup!

The optimal focus distance is 3mm from the bottom of the Beam Buddy head to the top of the material you are engraving.
