The process itself was a bit clunky - the lasercutter is an unintuitive Chinese import with a crappy Windows XP laptop to control it - but man, is it ever satisfying to watch once it's all set up.

I tried making 6 wheels. Two of them ended up not cutting right because of mistakes, but the other four turned out very neatly. As they say in Dutch, wherever one chops one will find splinters.

BUT WAIT, WHAT'S THAT IN THE CORNER? I also made Forever Labs cutouts! Hope you don't mind me breaching copyright stuffs. They're about the size of a poker chip. I made five, where can I send them to? mk thenewgreen b_b

Is that gif real-time speed? That's pretty damn fast.
