They have had light use being pulls from a now redundant package handling line.

length of travel is 40cm

Looking for £75.00 each P&P should be about £10.00 to the UK only Please.

That interesting, i was just about to try and mark out a pattern into some litho or try to cut it. (if 80w will do that)
I've seen some spray on stuff to mark alli with a laser, but it's so expensive I've not bothered with it.

What adhesive did you use and have you tried it on any other materials ? I've often thought about trying to melt a covering onto a metallic background but haven't had time to try it yet.

Nice work tho. the detail looks good, lets hope it lasts.

I have used a usb a extender on a webcam to keep an eye on the cutter from my office, it worked fine for that. However it was removed along with 300 others from sites because they were
unreliable before i got it.

Another option could be a dongle with a aerial socket and put the aerial up the pole.

Or a 3G/wifi router  http://www.solwise.co.uk/3g-routers.htm

Or a Iphone / smartphone with tethering ?

The comment was not meant to cause offense it mealy highlighted the differences in our cultures.
i would not have believed the U.S. could be in such a bad way (still don't ).
The Gun law over here was tighten up as a response to an number of what we would view as unacceptable incidents, multiple murders, this may be common place in the u.s. I neither know nor really care it's not something i need to worry about,
It had a direct impact on my shooting to the point were i didn't carry on with it.
I didn't agree with the new laws, but I live in a real(ish) democracy and as such will abide by them. Just because I think I am right doesn't make it so, neither dose
it give me the right to force my views or religion on ANYBODY.



If, "Manners maketh man" as someone said
Then he's the hero of the day
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
Be yourself no matter what they say

Takes more than combat gear to make a man
Takes more than a license for a gun
Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can
A gentleman will walk but never run


Here this is humor with a capital H or not if you don't want it to have one that is.
ether way Have  nice day.  ;D



P.S. don't blame John, apparently it wasn't him.

Have  safe and above all happy new year.

yeah, scaled the slots for 1/8 birch ply and cut.

came out at about 12" in height

will probably cut a dragonfly but will take the time to tab it properly first.
That's when i can find the time to do it.
