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.

Our Customers

Our machines are in schools, workshops and homes all over the UK being used by teachers, engineers, architects, hobbyists, artists, and makers; in fact people just like you. Laser cutting can seem like a mysterious skill at first but here at Just Add Sharks we hope to remove the mystery and help you make the most of your laser cutter.

Silvertail A0 Laser Cutter Customers

ModMyPi "So good we bought another!"

Dave and Jacob run ModMyPi, along with Dexter the dog; they stock various embedded development kits including Raspberry Pi and Arduino, and produce cases in house to protect them. They told us "After taking the decision to add some in-house pew pew to our range of Raspberry Pi cases, Just Add Sharks were the stand out winners when we were searching for a supplier. Their expertise with laser cutting resulted in us making a clear and informed decision regarding which cutter we required, and the level of service in installation, maintenance and troubleshooting is simply superb. We've been so impressed with the service and quality of cutters that we made the decision to purchase a second this year!"

You can check out all of their cases on their website; including their Pi Zero Case, Tyler Head Case, 7" Touchscreen Case & Stand, and the Genuino 101 Zebra Case.
