nice, love the signs.  For some reason I was expecting some jokes about the danger on them, not real danger;)

A friend of mine has just had some stainless fabrication work done by a company that cuts the material with lasers. He mentioned that I was constructing my own laser cutting head so they cut me this bicycle from stainless and said that if I could make one like this then I have truly constructed a machine to be proud of. (It is 1mm thick and 5mm long).

Don’t think I will ever be able to do it but it is one hell of a challenge.

I wonder - can anyone else cut one like this on a home built machine?.

Sorry for the bad photo but it is the best I can do without a close-up lens.

Cut out some training wheels, attach them, and then send it back to them.
