LASER TECHNOLOGY IN TURNING
The laser is used when doing deep hollowing of vessels. The red laser dot is used on the profile of the hollowform while the cutter is invisible on the inside. The pictures are of my setup, and my first attempt at laser guided woodturning.
Thanks for all the tips and help Dennis Laidler and Andrew Riley. Dennis Laidlerís Homepage
