They make a stone stripper but I dunno about atomizing whatever chemicals are in that when it comes time to Laze it.   :o  dunno if its worth the hassle.

I'm wondering if these could be wet sanded to erase the engraving. If so, I could have a reusable test piece.

I have wondered about that too.  I dont have any high grit though. 

Im burning my first set of commissioned coasters! I probably wont be paid for them since they were commissioned by family members lol.  but the point is I was noticing that this set had some marks.  I wiped them down with a dry paper towel and got the marks and alot of dirt off.  that might be causing the little bit of flaking I still get from time to time.  This set is clean now so we will see the result in a few hours or so.

hmmm ok well if you get some free time why dont you try to create a public folder and ill see if i can add to it.  I know you can with an emailed direct link (thats how my dad and I share a folder) but that wouldnt work for a whole community like us.

nice!  I grabbed these at joanns too.  they are mdf coasters same size as slate.  come in a set of six.  good for a prerun of a new design or to try color inversions.  obviously speed will have to be much higher so the settings wont be quite the same.  cant remember what I payed for these though.

well i created the shared folder... went to my other account and downloaded it to my account which seemed to be the only option.  I added 2 files.  logged out and checked the link... but the files arent there.  Hmmm again i think i did it wrong.  plus i have no file called public.  do you have dropbox pro?

ok lets try this.  Here is a dxf shared folder from my new dropbox.  It should allow anyone with the link access to the folder.  here is the link.  can you see if you can put a dxf file in there? All my dxf's are in the garage so I'll go add a few from there too.

Ive done that in the past but only access for my dad and I so I could "fix" his power point presentations.  FYI i hate power point because it never works right! well I created.  I've never tried to do a public access folder

Ive seen forum posts from Bob Puckett but I cant remember where.  Was he here for awhile?  He could probably sell a few of those things in this community if he still had the bug to do it.

hmmm I have a drop box.... but I also have 3 email addresses.  I could always sign up with one of my other email addresses for the cause.  This could be a good solution.

Sorry I think I update this post too much but its my post and I dont care.  So I have some spray polyurethane for wood. I may give that a try as a sealer.  I am also tempted to try a spray paint then engrave over it.  I might have to use a tape mask if the paint creates smoke that will affect the rest of the painted surface...

I have only ruined a few pieces so I try to only experiment on those ones.  I need to stop being cheep lol at $.75 a coaster I can afford to fail a few times.

Never used it before.  I signed up.  I can see how you can enter and save code but not files.
