eBay K40 CO2 Laser – Increasing The Cutting Area!

[amazon template=wishlist&asin=B07SQQMN3F]
In this episode, we will be exploring is bigger really better when it comes to increasing the cutting area of our k40 CO2 Laser? In this quick episode I am going to show how I removed a portion of the exhaust vent protruding into the cutting area of the laser as well as a 3D printed model I used to finish off the vent to (1) improve the looks and (2) to keep me from cutting my fingers!
