Hans and I made a great cork pop gun. We lasered the gun stock and he painted it camouflage. You’ll shoot your eye out.

Laser O Rama

The lasering continues. This time I built a secret combination lock box. You have to move the shields in the correct manner to reveal the goodness inside. Too bad I don’t have anything to hide inside. Thank you laser.

Engraving Hans into some wood

Here I am experimenting with engraving in wood.  I carved “Hans” out.  It works like a charm.

More fun with the laser.

Here is a laser cut do nothing machine.  The finger is cut out of fluorescent acrylic.  The box is held together with 1/2 nuts and screws.  Only had to cut this once as i designed it in Inkscape and all the pieces fit like a glove.

Sample laser cuts

Here are some sample cuts I made. The pacman is three different colors of acrylic put together. The lock an tumbler are from thingaverse.com. The pattern had some errors but they were easily fixed.

Let there be lasers

20111228-124506.jpgWell here it is baby, laser cutter. I’ve wanted one for a long time and now I have found a great one for a reasonable price. I got it from fslaser. The laser tube was damaged in shipping, but they sent me a new one super fast. So far I have cut wood and acrylic up to a quarter inch thick. Yeah

Pinball Posts

I wanted to add some real pinball posts but didn’t want to buy them from ebay so I made a mold of a post from my Target Alpha pinball. They turned out great. Now I can make as may as I want in any color.

Here is the post from Target Alpha

I decided to move it into my office and do something one it every day. The kids are always asking me so dad are you ever going to finish you pinball game? I have some of the main board installed and is starting to get fun. There is still a lot of work to be done bt at least it is starting to get somewhere.
