I helped kickstart Full Spectrum Laser’s 5th gen 20×12 hobby deluxe laser last year. They delivered the laser, and I tried and failed really quickly at building my own fume extractor. I bit the bullet and purchased an industrial strength fume extractor, and now I can use the laser without polluting the air. Yay! So: game on!
My head is overflowing with new ideas that feed off these initial tests. All very exciting!
