I should have my laser up soon, just waiting impatiently for connectors from China. I went with the 2.8W sub $100 laser detailed on this site by Leo, as I originally was intending to etch and engrave images. Then I ran across a bunch of other types of laser projects that I’d be interested in.
Besides etching/engraving, I’d like to try a few projects that involve actual cutting, but I am unsure of its capabilities with cut depth. As far as materials, I am looking at birch plywood. As far as thickness, I am looking at 1/8 inch and 1/4 inch. Can this laser handle the job and is just a matter of making multiple passes?
