Laser Cutter Maintenance Log (Perpetual)

Going to start a topic for logging laser maintenance minutes. Thought it might be easier to track if we keep records on a single thread, rather than a new post every time.


Checked mirrors, lens, alignment yesterday.
Mirrow 2 and 3 were slightly out of alignment so I adjusted those. Mirror 3 and the lense were dirty so gave them a cleaning.
This was the mirror

Everything is looking good now.


Yesterday I cleaned the lens and mirrors as well as aligned the mirrors.
Mirror 1 was ok and didn’t need aligning.
Mirror2 was dirty and very misaligned as was mirror 3.
Lens was also very dirty
