Was looking for the cheapest material to cut with my 1600mw A5. The Home Depot has full sheets of 0.1" ply that cut like butter.  8 passes at speed 75 cuts fully thru the ply. I cut the sheet into 5" x 7" pieces and get 108 of them for my $10.

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