laser sharpening

Postby oldbot » Mon Apr 01, 2013 9:49 am

I had a problem with my Ebay imported laser.
At first it cut well, but after a few month, the cuts became ragged.
Finally, it would hardly cut at all.
David Davidson at told me this is a common problem with
inexpensive lasers.
For only $41, they sharpened the beam for me and now it cuts better than new.
David told me, “the optics are fine, it is the beam that needs sharpening”.
If you have this problem with an imported CO2 laser, here are some links to help you: ... ning_sale/ ... april.html

I am going to have a chisel point point on mine for calligraphy.

I have a CNC milling machine, not a laser, but I gave David a call anyway. He said that, for the same price, they can also grind carbide end mills with a right angle, so that you can mill sharp internal corners with them. No more bisect lines and dogbones! Totally worth every penny.
