Laser Cutter Down

That could have been a lot worse, imagine if I had a failure last week. My laser is still cutting on the left hand side but not on the right hand side, the power tapers off as it goes from left to right. The lenses are clean so I think it's an alignment issue. The laser beam also appears to have been wandering off from vertical for a little while now so I think the two problems are related. It's a pain for my current orders and for item #52 but I'm hoping that if I pull it all apart and clean it up tomorrow night I'll be back up and running soon enough.
