I need (ok, want is a better word) a laser cutter so I can offer more detailed images on my Mash Paddles that I make as well as other woodworking products.
Here’s my dilemma…......
While the images I’ll be carving aren’t big (3×5 inches max), the item that I have to cut on averages 50 inches long by 4 inches wide.
Imagine having to cut a logo in the middle of a 4 foot long 2×4.
My CNC Router can easily do this as its “Y” Axis is totally open on both sides which allows very long products to be affixed to the table – It can only carve 18” of this area at a time, but that’s just fine.
Anyone know of a laser machine with open sides or the ability to be placed over an object?
I’ve seen a product called “Mr. Beam”, but have no clue on how to purchase it.
Oh yeah – reliability / ease of use would also be a good thing! ;-)
