    I have been poking around, I would like to build a nice sized laser cutter, roughly 1 meter by 1 meter (just a ball park). I think it can be done substantially less then the $7000 Lasersaur.

    Don't get me wrong I love the idea of a Lasersaur and it would be good for a larger entitiy, but I am thinking I could hit closer to the 1500-2000 mark.

    I have found some leads but nothing that has reached out a grabbed my attention fully yet, does anyone have any favorite laser resources?

    I remember looking at the Lasersaur BOM and noticing that most of it came from Misumi.

    If you buy Chinese parts...
