Mark this under "Laser Envy!"

LaserDuo is an open source laser cutter machine designed and built by Daniele Ingrassia and his team. LaserDuo integrates two different laser sources as key feature, being able to laser cut and engrave a wide range of materials with just one machine having available a CO2 and a Yag laser under the hood.

Found a great source for some wood puzzle plans. There is also a lot of information on how to clean up files found on the internet. It has a lot of content, I only made it 1/4 though in an hour! You will need to register for the forum to access the files.
Enjoy!

I made this for a friend at work who has horses.
The tail is real horse tail from her horses.
The horse is made from leather cut on the laser.

Here is a fun site to get some ideas.

52 projects has turned into 130 and counting!

About us from the site;
"52 Lasers is a collaboration between Pixelaser and Isette, showcasing one new project per month created with an industrial laser engraving & cutting platform. The blog was born out of a need for an artistic challenge and a huge list of things we want to try, but never seem to get around to doing. Expect to see a variety of different uses for laser engraving and cutting here—trying new materials, making functional objects, creating unusual artistic pieces, even documenting the experiments we’ve been meaning to do and feel would be helpful to the laser community at large. To that end, for each project, we’ll select one thing from an ever-growing list of ideas and turn it into a finished project. Then we’ll take some pictures and write some things and share them with you here! While the name 52 Lasers came to be when we were posting one project a week, our current main project schedule is monthly."

Found a nice older DVM for $5.00.

Of course there are better ones these days but I bought if for the nostalgia of it!

+Don Kleinschnitz This one is for you!

Finally got my rotatory working this weekend.

The cup is an insulated cup from Starbucks. My daughter is into dragonflys and her nickname is JAX.

I was able to make a stabilizer end out of some firm foam I get from work. It is interesting that math trumps common sense! The first one has an outer diameter of the larger end. You would think that this would make the angle of the cup straight but no! You have to add enough extra so that the cup is actually straight. Geometry finally paying off!

I found this chiller at my local university surplus outlet. Not bad for $5.00!
Now I need to add a water temp gauge. My simple monitor has now gotten a little more complicated!
