    Help/advice

    Post  Zala on Thu Sep 30, 2010 7:58 pm

    Hi ladies, hubby and I are thinking about buying a laser cutter to cut out various things (he's into flying model aircraft) but mostly crafty things like embellishments for cards possibly pendants for jewellery etc. If we did go ahead with it what sort of designs would you like to see made??

    this is just an example of the sort of thing we would be doing it's not ours as obviously as we havent got the machine yet.

    long story short, they are expensive but it's not us that would actually be buying it, nick works with another modeller who is a little old man and cant do too much himself but isnt short of a few pennies so he is talking about buying it and keeping it in our garage so he can use it or nick can use it on his behalf to make model planes in return and for a small fee we can use it to do what we want with.
