Regretfully Just Add Sharks Ltd has closed at the end of September 2017. Over the last year Just Add Sharks Ltd has faced challenges with the vanillabox crowdfunded Open Source laser cutter project and with leads times from their suppliers. Demand for low cost laser cutters has outstriped the supply. Lack of timely supply causes delays and disappointments to customers. This is further exasperated by the drop and fluctuating value of pounds sterling. Just Add Sharks Ltd will honour all customers manufacturers warranties.

Customers should continue to email their requests for technical support, software support, spare parts and warranty enquiries to or using the contact form below.

Make a DIY vacuum table for your laser cutter

We've made a DIY Vacuum Table for one of our Whitetooth A1 laser cutters to hold flexible and warped material flat while it undergoes laser cutting. The vacuum table allows full access to the surface, there is nothing to get in the way of the laser beam while it is cutting.

The vacuum table works by drawing a vacuum under the work piece, a series of holes in the surface of the table pull the material down onto it. The suction in this system is provided by a common household vacuum cleaner.

You can follow our handy Instructable where you can also download the cutting files and follow the instructions to make your own. We've also been entered into the Laser Cutter Instructables contest so if you feel we've earned your vote we'd be very happy to receive it!
