Prolly reminds one of hot steel burned into MNB.

But you still can't get sharks to shoot frickin' laser beams from their heads.

That'* great stuff, Bill.

I also would like to see pics, but then those are probably Classified for now. At least until the patent goes through, I would imagine.

Believe it or not, I successfully welded glass and aluminum with a laser as part of that one.
You welded glass to aluminum? Or glass to glass and aluminum to aluminum?

I've a few things to patent myself, but wow, at 10 grand a piece, I just can't do it yet...and I'm too suspicious of other people at the moment to try and find any investors. I've had one stolen from me by opening my big fat mouth.


EDIT: I really need to read the whole thread before I reply, hehe. Wow, glass to aluminum!! That'* fantastic!
