You take the bottom off the laser
We'll see if this turns out the way I hope.....
Well, that's one way of doing it I suppose lol
WARNING! DO NOT LOOK INTO LASER WITH REMAINING EYE!
You know... Things like this is how shop accidents happens!
Hold my beer and watch this...
Hey guys, they actually make the bottom removable for this scenario. One of the selling points of the machine.
Well that took all of the fun out of it! We were thinking you would prove to be either hero or the new @Tclem of all jokes.
A 4,000.00 plus machine, I ain't a gonna do nuttin' to break it.
Do not show this too your wife and then go out and get drunk! No tellin what you're liable to find your backside branded with when you wake up!
Here is what we ended up with, 3 sections of burning. It's gotten 2 good wet coats of brush on WOP, It'll get knocked back a bit with steel wool in the morning and waxed. They wanted a more satin finish. I'm hoping they have a few more of these slabs around, would love to talk them out of some for a few projects of my own....
Cool...very cool. That looks sweet Colin!!
I've been meaning to do that to mine. When I move it to the new shop I'm going to set it up on blocks and have a removable block to slide in to use for the bottom on small stuff
I'm actually thinking about building a stand using four lead screws to raise and lower the bottom. kinda like a planer head....
Ok yeah that's what I was thinking. Just didn't say that. Send me your plans and I'll see if they look like mine
Does the laser head move up and down?
I thought you had to maintain a certain focus distance between head and board.
I just got my 40 watt Chinese laser back up and running and starting to learn how to use it.
You can adjust the laser height. Once it's set, since the board is a flat plane you don't change it until you move to a different work height.
