Now that I’m finally retired I’ve decided to start a business with my Laser. I can cut or engrave most every type of material but steel. The detail you can achieve is incredible. I bought a 60watt laser about a year ago with a LARGE work table 36” x 24” with up to 18” in depth…. One of the Lumberjocks came down to visit recently to have me engrave some pens.. I live in St. Catharines Ontario.. Say hi anytime..:)

Those are very cool, thanks for sharing. I’ll let you know if I need a project cut, and I may very soon.
Don’t forget Christmas ornaments, they’ll make you some cash especially if you personalize them.
You can download hundreds of snowflake .dxf files online. Let me know if you need some and
I’ll email them to you. Nice job.

Thanks for the comments… @LoneTree.. I lived in Colorado for years.. My girls still live in Colo. Spgs. I miss Colorado..
The biggest thing now is figuring out what will sell with the Laser. I have thousands of vector graphics to work with.
The machine operates from CorelDraw, so that’s how I make up my patterns. Anyhow I look forward to working with it more now. I just ordered another Lens for it that will allow me to cut 1” acrylics. The possibilities are endless. I’ll post more things as I complete them.

Lasers are awesome! I worked as an engraver and cutter at a local shop for a number of years on everything from 60watt CO2 to 4000watt CO2 to 120watt YAG. We even had an old dinosaur die cutter CO2 from early 90’s that we picked up from Hallmark. (think snowflake xmass cards)
I had tons of fun making and engraving all sorts of things.

Quick easy way to clear up the smoke that is around the wheels on the bike in the first picture… Cover your piece with masking tape before engraving. We used to get large rolls of masking paper. You can do all sorts of things with vinyl too. there are a variety of products you can purchase that will help you etch all sorts of materials from ceramics to metals. Just stay away from gold copper. Highly reflective I caught a shirt on fire while wearing it.

Good luck with the business. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to give me a shout. I’ll help if I can.
Have fun!!
