Blackpool laser cutting service

Description

YOUR design, my laser cutter and my workshop and 15 minutes time.  Well when i say workshop it’s really a shed.  Its a nice shed and it’s my shed.

I charge £15 per every 15 minutes laser cutting time

To give you an idea 3mm plywood, acrylic and MDF cuts at 9mm per second

I have some poplar ply which is 2.8mm (it’s supposed to be 3mm but isn’t) that cuts very nicely at 24mm per second

Paper/card cuts at 90mm per second!

Your design will need to be in either cdr or dxf format – or I can offer a design service also

I can tell you to the millisecond how long your cut will take before you give me the go-ahead

You can wait for it and have a coffee (as long as I’m not busy elsewhere).  Car parking usually available midweek.
