Make your own remote manual laser pulse unit to allow you to perform quicker mirror alignments and save time walking around the laser machine while performing this necessary task.
In the video on my YouTube Channel, I show two methods of making a manual pulse button for the Co2 Laser, to enable you to pulse the laser for mirror alignment without needing to pulse from the Laser Control Panel. This allows for quicker alignment and saves time walking around the laser machine.
IMPORTANT: Proper safety precautions should be used including Protective Eye Glasses when using the Co2 Laser Machine.

The 1st Method shown uses a potentiometer, enabling you to safely set the laser power to low milliamps for mirror alignment, and also features a safety switch to disable the momentary switch to prevent accidental pulsing of the laser tube.
The 2nd method only provides 100% laser power and does not include a safety protection switch. Extreme care should be taken when using this method, and MW Laser will not be held liable for any personal injury or equipment failure or damage.
