The "Ferrari" of safety ...

If you want to improve your safety around your DIY Laser machine, have a look at:

Explanations in German, but the pictures illustrate what is going on.

Do you have already thought about a solution yourself or is a part of the problem sitting in front of the screen?

He certainly did a great job - well thought out.  I reckon that will bump the cost of the whole project jp a fair bit!...... a sheet of acrylic the size he used for the cover, costs around  36 UK GBP for a start ...never mind the rest of the items used for the enclosure.  Def 10/10 for the project  though!  He has some very nice attachments on that laser   ;D

Lasers are wonderful machines..not ONLY  can they cut a finger off BUT  they can also cauterise it at the same time.....

SAFETY -  IS NO ACCIDENT

I roughly calculated the additional cost by finding the most economic sellers in Germany and ended at about 200 - 250.  But it is a professional investment in your health (smoke, laser ray). Once completed you will be protected against 99% of potential risks while operating your machine.

A wooden alternative would also be around 100+ incl. fan, hinges, power supply and some metal plate etc. As my health is worth that little investment I will copy the main construction for my laser.
