Looking for Small Laser or CNC machine

Hi all
Im looking for a Small Laser or CNC Machine that i dont need much ventilation dont want the hassle of ducting and something smaller than 3’ x2’ sort of area to do small CnC Work I originally wanted Laser but i have an issue of wanting to cut a Brushed effect material which I believe they dont do in laminate, I’m currently spending about £500 with a supplier and am sure i could get a better price if i did it myself, as my customer is on demand sometimes next day we need a quick turnaround so my supplier sometimes struggles as he’s got lots on himself and also they can be one-offs which is a lot of hassle for them.

Re: Looking for Small Laser or CNC machine

You can buy brushed effect laminates for use on lasers, try Gravograph, their stuff is very very good.

What other uses do you envisage? The problem is a lot of sign materials use PVC, and this is a HUGE no-no on laser.

And you will always need to vent a laser, either using a BOFA or similar, or out to air.
