Lasers are cool, and so are CNC machines.
With a little help from ebay and Jesper I have a steady reliable laser module that I have mounted on my CNC machine.
The laser is always on (I’m gonna fix that) and the color is in a spectrum that is not visible by humans, the good news is that it is visible by my iPhone. So I shot a little video:
You can see the light emitting from the laser LED and at the end you see the result of the laser. man oh man will this be fun to play around with.
The cooling seems to work as well!
This is exciting!
