Disclaimer and Safety


Lasers use intense beams of light to create heat and fire as a normal part of their operation, and depending on the laser, the light might not be visible to you. When used safely, a laser cutter is an incredibly useful tool. However if the proper safety measures are ignored, you could burn or blind yourself or someone else, or start a fire that could damage or destroy your home, or in the worst case, kill someone. CO2 lasers use high voltages, and if wired incorrectly could kill you.

Do not leave a running laser unattended.
