Was amazed on the demo. What was more incredible was the fact that I found my way there in the first place, long old drive up to that there north

Order placed for laser cutter

Got it from HPC Laser up in Halifax, really helpful bunch of guys.
And yes David, looking like I’m going to be doing to doing my mad professor impression over the weekend!
After a day on it, I can see it maybe forcing us to buy a cnc due to the limitations of material it can cut, fret cutting composite & foam can’t be done on a laser, but on the plus side, it can cut 10mm acrylic up to 1600 x 900 like butter

Excellent choice! As you probably know, anything PVC is a no-no. HPC Laser are on my highly recommended list. I have had 8 from them, and still have 6 of them. 4x1290s and 2x6090s. Its the backbone of the business. We also have a trotec Speedy 300, but that was bought for engraving mostly.
