Tips and Advice

  • We'll eventually collect all the forms people have filled out when using the machine and document them here
  • Be sure to focus the beam using the 2“ tall wood block stored just inside the lid of the machine
  • The black knob to the right inside the lid raises and lowers the table
  • Try not to bump the machine while it is running, the magnetic safeties are sensitive and will kill the laser if it thinks the lid is open
