    Got me a 50 Watt CO2 laser coming

    I got it to do custom work on kitchen cabinet doors and glass. Any other thoughts as to money making with it after it is done with its intended purpose?Already going to use it to cut out buildings for the HO train and move some of my coffee mugs/tumblers up to the next level but I want more!

    That is a badass tool when used skillfully. Is it mechanized on a CNC table?

    12 x 20. X and Y head movement and Z is adjustable. No Z programming. I got one the size I need for cabinet doors and glass. I have found that I can also work with denim and cut leather

    Very nice!

    I do stained glass but that's a bit out of my range. Still, you could cut some very nice shapes.

    I am thinking a panoramic scene on top cabinets, laser engraved wood designs and then stain with lots of polyurethane. Imagine walking into the kitchen with a mountain or cityscape panoramic (360 degree) view.

    To be honest I wanted one of the ebay lasers but I just did not want to throw my money at ebay and pray it would be good.
