New Laser Proposal

From Ace Monster Toys Wiki

Propsal

Our current laser is starting to fail and will require significant rehab to stay viable - such rehab will require signficant down time.

We have the opportunity to get a newer version of our laser for approximately 3K in expenses. 

Asset AMT148

  • The new laser is 120 watts
  • 1300 x 900 mm bed
  • New controller
  • It is currently locacted in a space I acquired on Murray street for rehab and Terry E. owns it. 

The plan is to rehab the laser in that space, then swap it out for our existing laser. 

Challenges

Funding - This proposed budget has been reworked the budget based on some likely outcomes to fund this project. It is detailed here (see change log).

Timeline - Swap out the weekend of Sept 4th ... so an ambitious timeline

Rehab resources - We will need the following rehab rerouces

  • A person or team to build a new fob box
  • Time to work on the controller
  • A team to clean the laser (so dirty)
  • A team to work on the mechanicals and ensure safety (rehab the z, test/repair interlock, safety disconnect switch, etc)
  • Minor parts like belts needed
  • Truck rental/possibly movers
  • optical alignment, mirror cleaning.
