    Seen this before and find it hard to believe. Passing it over the finger without damage. I ha a 40w laser cutter and wont dare going near the beam with my finger.

      The video makes it look like it's a scanned laser so perhaps that make it safe for passing over human skin at the amount shown.

        It's got smaller since a while back, the finger exposure was surprising, fingers must be more reflective than rust I suppose, who knows!
        I do want one though!

          IIRC that unit was pretty expensive,wonder if they have the costs down to something less than NASA?
          I just need one more tool,just one!

            I wonder what exactly it does to the rust. Does it vaporize it while keeping the bare metal intact because of its reflectivity and short exposure?

              If it sounds to good to be true...it probably is.

              Yeah I'd love to have one of these units, would be great for a commercial restoration business, but at more than $450,000 US for the 1000 watt model I'll most likely stick with my sand blaster and a couple of jugs of vinegar.

              • Powerful, very short, rapid and moving laser pulses produce micro-plasma bursts, shockwaves and thermal pressure resulting in sublimation and ejection of the target material.

                Thanks Willy.

                Do you want to split the cost?

                    Hi Willy, How do you use the vinegar?

                      Yeah, sure thing. Get it set up at your place and I'll fly down after the first of the year with some stuff to try it out on. Can't come next week as I need a few more empty bottles to turn in for refund so that I can cover my half of the cost, one more good weekend should do it.

                      Soak the rusty parts in the vinegar in order to dissolve the rust. You could also use the vinegar for making pickled asparagus or string beans, but not after the rust removal process.
                      Come to think of it, if I need to buy enough vinegar to de-rust my old Ford winter beater truck, I may be cheaper off going halfers on the machine with Michael!
