Laser Open Hours

This meetup is open to the public and dedicated to the Laser. If you've taken our laser basis usage and safety class, you can use this time to run your jobs with an instructor present and brush up on your skills! This is a requirement before going solo! Please note that this is a shared time so we ask that you do not come with a job that will take longer than 15-20 minutes. Please note: to use the laser non-members pay $20 and $1 per minute for job-time, which is defined by when the laser is actually cutting or engraving. FCFL Members get 3 hours of job-time included every month and pay $0.50 per minute after that. If you haven't had the class already, come enjoy a laser demo!
