    This is why I love words like technology, innovation, modernity, progress, future and UPDATES, of course. In another post people fighting each others over blades, settings, pressure, speed, offset bla bla bla and here this marvel that will soon be available also for us and no one else will fight again... actually, I’m not sure. LOL!

    Always amazed that cutting paper products in a laser doesn't result in fire
    I'm told this is because the actual burning happen the quickly it so there no time for the material to catch alight.
    Although I heard of some horror stories of fires they to recommend to have a fire extinguisher close by and never turning you back away from a operation laser unit and and either remove the offcuts or wet them down with a spray of water

    I've been keen on getting a laser for some time if only the units that are around the cost level of a hobbiest (cheapskate one at that) were not so variable in quality / build
    The old saying you get what you pay for but with the k40 laser it appears to be pot luck you receive one the is assembled well and or works and continues to work without a major component quickly failing

    I had a customer who bought her first KNK after burning down half of her house because she left her laser cutter unattended while it was cutting cardstock for her wedding invitation business. You don't leave them unattended.  You also have to be careful about what materials you cut. For example, cutting vinyl with a laser will produce toxic gases.  I think they're very cool cutters, but I persoally would never attempt to write a user manual for one or provide technical support because I don't want to get sued when something very wrong happens.

    Of course, that the environment is different and must have a fire extinguisher nearby. Also no one would buy a cutter like that to cut a single Christmas Card per year. But this technology promises and if improved and adapted for personal use or for small business budget, I’m in!

    @SandyMcC - If KnK starts a new project with this technology are you sure that you’ll step back?

    I'm sure they can contract someone else to write the UM for a laser cutter.  It makes no sense for my small business to accept the liability for something that could burn a house down.
