Thanks Daniel, I’m still in the process of improving my setup, and I think really the Emblaser 1 is suited to the person who likes to tinker and modify things.
Although it’s a fantastic bit of kit for the money, there are certain aspects which can be improved upon, and that isn’t a slur against Darkly Labs as they have produced an awesome laser cutter that’s affordable for the average person and I admire all the work that they must have put into developing it.
The biggest issues I had was the underside of the material being cut getting scorched and damaged and the difficulty in aligning the material.
The aluminium honeycomb virtually eliminates the damage to the underside of the material, I got that from ebay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/141759884244?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
And I decided to raise the cutting base above the surface to allow for airflow and the possible future addition of fume extraction, the perforated metal sheet was from here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B015J1O8ZW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I then just raised the perforated sheet above the base using some small nuts/bolts after marking the A4 cutting area and adding holes to fix the alignment corner bracket, which is just an L shaped bracket from B&Q, I then sprayed it all black with some high temp spray paint.
Hope this helps
I’ve just added this video to youtube showing the smoke escaping from the gap between the raised perforated metal sheet and the original base.
