so @pierre and I did a quick inspection today after the workshop. The laser is out of alignment. It also not hitting in a round circle shape as you would expect. This may be due to damages mirror or lens, or hitting side of one of the mirrors on the way. We need to set a few hours aside and do a full inspection and realignment of the mirrors.
I do not think it is unsafe to continue to use the laser for now, however you may notice reduce cut quality.
I have just breezed through and love the idea. I would like to make one of these for myself. I have good quality jobsite tools that I have brought to the space before and am willing to bring for this. Most importanty I have a table saw and daddo set to 3/4. If anything else is needed let me know.
it looks like he bolted most if it together which would definitely make it easier to move if required, and make it easy to shim the linear rails as you say. It is hard to make out from the video but it looks like the large tubes on which the linear rails are mounted are themselves adjustable up and down? It looks like a well thought out setup … relatively easy to get it setup.
It looks very solid but also looks heavy … could the bed be made with smaller tubing?
