    Very low angle. I can't answer in reference to the cabinet scraper, never used one of those. Believe me, as much stuff as I have engraved over the years, I can promise you I wouldn't be doing...

    I showed it as an example as to how the process works, for reference. As to it being relative to the engraving area, that's nonsense. In my experience, the smaller it is, the easier it is to deal...

    Oh, I don't know, masking with transfer tape is pretty quick. Did this one recently. Took about 15 seconds to mask it, and about 15 seconds to remove the mask, scrape it with a plastic razor and be...

    Good catch Dave! I missed the "LP" part. A vinyl plotter won't cut a record, no.

    You'd want a vinyl plotter for doing that kind of work. Not very practical to try and make a laser do that kind of work.

    I think you make them work. They'll just take some time and skill. I have no skill, so this is 5 minutes with no skill....

    I think with maybe 15-20 minutes in Photoshop or Perfect Resize (I don't...

    That's interesting. When I was searching around about it, it appeared that acrylic tanks were commonly done. In fact, there are a couple of tv shows that show people making tanks and all they use is...

    Figures, we did a lot of cast in the past and after having some specific issues with a customers products, we changed over to extruded, so I can't sneak a side panel here and there out of it :(

    That helps a lot. Do they use mainly cast or extruded acrylic? I keep saying I'm going to make my own tank, but seems like we use a lot more extruded than cast, and cast seems to be what people say...
  11. I hope not. He's not a big company you'd be...

    I hope not. He's not a big company you'd be stealing his design from, he's a guy with an idea that's trying to do right and make it. I'd hate to think if it were your idea that you'd be happy about...

    Yes, but you said in your initially posted the following :



    I hope you aren't planning on copying the design the guy at AquaBox developed.
  13. I didn't cut that box in that photo so I can't...

    I didn't cut that box in that photo so I can't comment on that. The customer started with us, bringing us jobs to "laser" and more often than not, they ended up on the router, not the laser. After...

    Something isn't making sense here. Dan has listed his location as being in Ontario, but the name on the product is AquaBox, and I've personally made the prototypes for the inventor of AquaBox in...

    Getting customers is easy. Getting ones that pay top dollar for work is the secret :D

    12 posts already? You did realize this thread is a year old right?
  17. Maybe your price is too low? :)

    Maybe your price is too low? :)
  18. I didn't say it couldn't be done, I said it...

    I didn't say it couldn't be done, I said it wasn't the best way to do it. Why have to go buy a jointer with the laser, when you can just use the router and do it all in one step. Not to mention the...

    If my memory serves me correctly, your partner already owns a router, doesn't he? I seem to recall him telling me that he bought one about 1 1/2 years ago.

    Lasering is not the right way to make that box. If you plan on gluing acrylic the important part is that the edges are square. A laser cuts on a taper because the beam is shaped like an hourglass. If...

    Mark, you are correct, that's the wrong lens. As Mike said, the black is 2.0", the silver is 2.5". I just measured the focus tool for the silver one and it's about 12mm longer (further away) than the...

    That's interesting Paul, we primed the entire boards, painted them with exterior paints and planted them with 4" x 4" posts. Those things would move all over the place. Not to mention bowing. We had...

    I wouldn't call anything is does "micro". I'll never use it again. Not to mention the fact that it's so heavy it's not funny.

    Extira swells when wet. A great deal of swelling. I wouldn't recommend it.

    My point is you're constantly comparing your brand new Chinese machine to your 10 year old other machines. If you want to say how great it does, then compare it to a new western machine. That would...
