Great design!!!
What color protector do you use? Link? I found this would that work?
Is this is the laser that you used?

Hi. That looks very much like mine, although I have the 5W one.

Hi. Yes, that looks just like mine. More expensive than the 2.5/3.5W ones but I decided a bit of extra power might come in handy sometimes. I've blogged about materials I've tried cutting with it at www.cncmakerzone.co.uk if that helps :-)

Great idea. What laser do you use ?

Just a cheap 5W diode-LASER, although it cuts very well (see my cutting tests at cncmakerzone.co.uk if you want to see). It's one of the ones around 44mm square with an external driver board and PSU.

If you dont get to it before I do, I might remix this by replacing a window on the side with a vacuum attachment for fume extraction. Very nice project.

Hi. Funnily enough I started this project out with a vacuum attachment then decided to do the vacuum extractor and shield bits separately. I'll look forward to seeing your remix :-)
