Cutting through leather…

Hi I am trying to cut leather and I used the preset for medium leather. Should I be using the thick setting if I am having them come out with a hairy fringe?? Thanks!

Can I add a photo here too?

It depends on the weight of (how thick) the leather that you’re trying to cut through. Medium is good for about 3 oz leather. Thick is good for about 5 or 6 oz leather. Anything thicker you’ll have to play with the setting a little bit.

If you click the upload button in your text box while you’re typing it’ll let you add a picture or file to your comment.


Thank you!

What leather is this and how thick is it?


Use an arc lighter to burn off the fuzzies. If you do not have an arc lighter you can use a candle. It only takes 1/4 of a second when the flame is on the leather.

Also if you put on gum trag on your leather before the laser there are no fuzzies.


I actually didn’t know this. Thanks for the tip!
