Hi LJ!

This time I bring here a more experimental project. I was intended to push to its limits the cheap laser engraver I own to make my own ruler. And the results aren’t bad at all. I understand this is not a must have tool on every workshop but it brings many possibilities to our work, due it’s presition and cleanlyness. It’s been really fun to play with a small laser like this. By now I’ve only tried it on wood, cardboard and paper but it can also be used in leather so there’s lots of potential uses.

I hope you enjoy this video. Please, feel free to make your comments here or in YouTube.

First neat project! The commercial rulers are usually not right fr a lot of jobs, slip, etc. when you need them to stay!

As I am a long ways from young; I have seen tremendous advances in almost everything!

And the rate of the advances keeps getting faster and faster too. I will be amazing to see what develops in the next 10 years or so.

Hi ww_bcn. That’s a great project to experiment with.
I just purchased an AS-5 laser and am waiting for delivery. You seem to have mastered the art very well.
