Laser Log Book
Please add an entry to this page whenever you use the laser, it give us an idea of the problems we're facing with it, when it's used, and just general notes.
Please try to include a rough idea of how long you used it for (laser time, not actual time), and what you did. General free-form text is fine. If you did something cool, mention it, as folk may want to grab SVGs from you.
Add new entries above existing ones.

Laser cut several sheets acrylic - made case for Arduino Mega + BreadBoards, 3x 'jigsaw' Maker Faire logos; gave Laser Training.
30% speed, 100% power, 14mA, 2 passes seems about right for 3mm acrylic.
Laser ran for about 30 mins total I'd say.
