Laser Safety / Acrylic Orange Shields
« on: February 22, 2017, 09:31:45 AM »
Most of our laser diodes have a wave length rating of 445nm -- make sure you KNOW what the rating is for the laser diode YOU are using.

You can buy a 12x12 inch acrylic Orange shield from the link below, if that size works for you:

General Discussion / CO2 Laser Grounding Safety
« on: February 20, 2017, 06:40:38 PM »
If anyone owns one of the 40/50/60/80/100 watt CO2 laser machines from China, this video is an absolute must see regarding electrical grounding safety.

Particularly interesting at the 9:30 point of the video regarding the bucket of water used for laser tube cooling!

10:50 point talks about safety glasses.

There is a lot of information about laser safety on the internet. For the safety of your eyes, Google and read about laser safety.

Everyone who buys, builds (option) and operates a laser machine is responsible for using it safely -- and -- is also responsible for the safety of others who are around the machine when it is in use.

By far the biggest safety issue is the wearing of laser safety goggles with the correct wave length rating for the laser diode they are using. If you buy another laser diode, you may also have to buy different laser safety goggles. I have 4 or 5 laser diodes but they are have the same wave length rating range so I can use the same safety goggles with any of them.

Another safety issue is to NEVER leave your laser machine running unattended! Never!

General Discussion / Emblaser 2 taking pre-orders
« on: February 12, 2017, 08:33:02 AM »
Normally $2500.00 now on sale for $1300.00.

They claim they can cut 6mm wood. Install a Z axis on your 250.00 KIY laser machine and use BCL (with z axis support) and cut 6mm wood too!

Rules / Signature Rules
« on: February 08, 2017, 11:21:47 AM »
Please do not advertise your business website, Facebook or any other social media links in your signature.

Do not include your phone number or email address.

Your first and optionally last name would be nice so everyone can associate a first name with a @username.

Exceptions: To help promote those who are developing software for these low power laser machines, I will allow developers of software targeted towards our machines to have websites and email addresses in their signatures, so users can contact them.

Thank you...
