    Hello, I work at a small independent school and I don't have a laser cutter.
    Would anybody be selling one or recommend one that I could get that isn't too expensive.
    Thanks

    Hi Andrew, which school are you from? I may be able to assist here.

    HPC lasers do them really cheap (compared to others). Their after sales is not great but you get what you pay for!
     
  4. We have a Rayjet from Trotec. Very easy to use but not the cheapest and quite small. If you get a chance go to BETTS or another education show have a look round. I would go for the biggest and most powerful one your budget can stretch but also think about proper extraction. Get some advice on the extraction side and the filters used and this may use up a chunk of your budget. Most of the tubes will last a while but again can be expensive to replace - some are air cooled and some are water cooled.
