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.

Blast Gates

Over at LAMM Space, Ian Norton has been working on some electronically controlled blast gates to help manage his dust extraction.

As Ian notes, blast gates are not a new concept, but they come in a set range of sizes, and there was nothing available to fit the 110mm pipe that he is using. Head over to the LAMM Space blog to read about how he designed and built it, and grab the files to have a go at making your own. He has yet to share how he implemented the electronics, so you'll have to make do with this sneaky peek he tweeted recently!

You can follow Ian on Twitter to keep up with the latest on this project, and to check out more of his work! This project was made using one of our Greyfin laser cutters.
