I broke my K40 Laser Engraver

Yes folks, it happened. I came out to the Tinkerspace and my K40 laser engraver wouldn’t turn on.

I had been testing out the emergency stop button the night before and I turned it the wrong way. This loosened the nut that holds the switch into the control panel and as you can see from the video it lead to a critical failure.

Luckily there was no permanent damage done and gave me a chance to make this project video.

I’d love to hear if you’ve had any similar experiences with your tools.

For now though, thanks for stopping by.
