My buddy just moved into a new apartment and was forced to downsize his workspaces. As a result, he sold me his partially assembled Zenworks CNC for CHEAP. I immediately set out to get it up and running.
A buddy of mine runs a ring of food trucks, and told me his dream: a stylish lamp that could clearly tell his customers when the kitchen was about to close. Thus, the Last Call Lamp was born!
My goals for this device were twofold: to allow me to *see* the coolant circulating thru my Laser Cutter, and observe its temperature in real time.
It was a bummer to discover that my retail air-assist nozzle didn’t fit, but in 30 minutes I made & installed something even better!
As my first really practical laser cutting project, I created an acrylic enclosure for a voltage regulator.
The K40 lasers are legendary for their shoddy quality and unreliable components, but as far as I can tell, those might be issues of the past! I’ve been getting excellent results—here’s what’s it took to get there.
