  • Birthday on tuesday will be 69 so birthday tips WITH ENGINEERING CONTENT

    I HAVE ACUMULATED APPROX £300 POUNDS AND WOULD TOP IT UP AND BUY EITHER YET ANOTHER GUITAR A JUMBO, or staying on topic perhaps a small laser cutter used or new andy tips before I buy? Alistair

    Happy birthday for Tuesday, Alistair, I think you should buy the guitar, you can pick it up at any time and use it, the laser cutter is too limited in use.

      Unless you have a place that is well ventilated and can have a powered exhaust vent to the outdoors, avoid the laser cutter. A guitar has no such limitations.

        That depends, what kind of guitar?

          I didn't even know you could play music on a laser cutter.

          Oh well, you learn something new every day. Happy birthday Alistair!

            Did it require a lathe to "turn" 69?

              He's just a youngster, I wish I could turn 69, again, it would need help from a dirty lady friend for what I would like though!

                How many guitars and what type do you already have? Might make a difference.

                  And another early Happy Birthday to you! ! !

                  Are the guitar and laser the only two options?

                    How about a resin SLA printer?

                      Happy Birthday.

                      People say I'm getting crankier as I get older. That's not it. I just find I enjoy annoying people a lot more now. Especially younger people!!!

                          Does Your machining go better than Your guitar playing? If Your guitar playing sounds like a set of bagpipes being tortured the answer would be different.

                              Well, he did start out with good intentions. But we are a very skilled lot at derailing even the best of intentions.... 😎
