Re: who has a laser in thier shop?

I bought my laser about three years ago from Epilog. Very nice to have. Epilog is a very good company in Colorado with great service and well built machines. I got the 36 x 24 120w model: http://www.epiloglaser.com/legend_36ext.htm but they do make smaller machines.

Be prepared to answer this question on a regular basis at any given fun fly or event....."So, if I give you a plan can you just scan it in and cut parts for it?" Some non CAD folks just don't understand when you say you have to draw all of the parts.

Nice looking machine you got there.

LOL, Yeah I already got that like 50 times. then it is like....what is autocad.
I don't mind working with people trying to help them but it just takes soooo long to convert a raster to a useable vector. I would love to find an easy and accurate way of doing that.

Re: who has a laser in thier shop?

Ok, here is a little project I have been working on. Not related to RC bit cool. I have designed my own poker table and chips and need an opinion. below are pics of the table so far and what the chips will look like. the question is should I make the other side of the chips the same as below or do something different?? Decisions Decisions...

Re: who has a laser in thier shop?

LOL, what really took up the time was the 10 seat poker table complete with custom chips, and case. . I assume by "tags" you meant Tabs to interlock everything? if so Yeah, I am trying to spend more time designing the jigging into it now so I don't have to do it later. and then.....you change things on me.. LOL, j/k it is easy to do and worth it in the end for sure! Let me think about the kit thing, we may be able to work something out. Didn't know you flew electric.

How hard would it be to mount one of those frickin' lasers to the head of a shark?

I know this is resurrecting an old thread but are you still digging the rabbit laser?

I've currently got an itch to get a laser engraver/cutter to play around with and rabbit is one of the ones I'm considering vs. paying twice as much for an epilog/universal desktop setup.

I know Universal and Epilog are top of line. But how good are the Ebay clone imports?
