The phone rang. A client wanted 300 USB wine bottle corks with their logo lasered into the ends and I had 5 days to do the job. Blimey!
This jig gave me a chance of getting the logo spot on.
Fortunately I could laser one end, then turn them over and do the other end, cutting the corks in half after to give me two caps per cork.
After that, I had to create a jig to hold the lasered pieces on my drill press so I could drill out slots for the USB gubbins to fit into. The constant repeating actions gave me cramp so if the job happens again, I’ll design a better hands free jig.
Having the Glowforge makes jobs like this so much easier, never mind the ability to engrave logos etc.
