The Epilog 50 watt laser engraver is one of the most popular tools in the shop, and often times one of the first tools members use.
If you have a digital design, image, or text that you want to either engrave cut out of a material, the laser may just be your go-to tool. Wood, acrylic, paper, glass, and cloth can all be laser-cut and laser-etched to great effect.
