Congrats to Julia in Pa. on her new Crafford laser. Mine just came in
yesterday and I’m pretty sure Doug Zaruba is getting/got his any
minute now. The training was really good and the rep had me doing
some kick-ass stuff the first time out of the gate. It’s costing me
an effort of will not to run into the shop right now to be with my
high tech toy instead of writing this but I would like to open a
discussion with those who have laser experience.
I would very much appreciate it if anyone would care to share advice,
settings, tweaking for the machines. I’m sure there will be very cool
uses I might not come up with on my own for months, not to mention
handy techniques and jigs for working inside the chamber. I have to
say I was very amused to find yet ANOTHER use for Sharpie markers
yesterday. It seems silver has a reflectivity problem that tends to
steal the potency of the beam, so a quick run over with a sharpie
dulls things out enough to get proper action on your metal.
Anyone have anything to share?
