Laser Cut Mitre Joints

 

When laser cutting with most laser machines you can only cut straight down. How can we cut angles? Make a jig, Martin Raynsford from Just Add Sharks shows us how.

Here at Just Add Sharks, we’ve been running some experiments using these cutting jigs and the results are pretty promising. The first and arguably most useful jig holds the material at 45 degrees to the laser beam. The panels that make up the box were cut to size before the machine was set up to accept the mitre jig.
