Getting Jiggy with it


It's not just about the things you can make with a laser cutter, the laser can also help you make things to make other things. I've been making these internet boxes for quite some time now, each one has a hole in the top and two holes in the side. I've been drilling them by eye for far too long so I finally got round to building a jig to hold the boxes in the right place for me. The vertical slot lines it up to drill a hole in the top. The horizontal slot is larger than the side of the box, pushing it to the top lines up one hole, pulling it down to the bottom allows the second hole to be placed just above it.
