I create so few pieces that create is an important word to me so if I was mass producing I wouldnít get anything out of making jewellery or using my skills and continuing to learn new ones. The laser cutter at that price sent a flicker of interest but I know it wouldnít get used often enough to merit the spend and I havenít got any more space in my wee workshop
    Agreed and thanks from one old dinosaur to another! 🤪

    Hi Dennis,
    Yes there can be potential safety concerns using these machines but I suppose same as any workshop machinery. I think it's just a matter of taking adequate precautions ,ppe fume extraction ,ventilation etc.

    Hi Ian,
    No offence taken in fact I think you raised a valid point. I have to admit a similar thought lurks in the back of my mind, but I suppose a person that produces an item by traditional hand skills might find a use to embellish the item (as in the attached images for example) ? but as I say i'm just having fun experimenting with the possibilities at the moment
