Where do you buy your laser tubes and other consumables?

We buy our laser spares from the most prestigious suppliers, usually in the PRC.

What does Smoke & Mirrors aim to achieve?

We believe that CO2 laser cutting should be accessible to all creatives and not just geeky engineers. We understand that a CO2 laser cutter is a powerful, but often mysterious and scary tool. By providing a "no stupid questions" non-gatekeeper'ed community, videos and tutorials we make laser cutting accessible to everyone. We aim to help promote the work of those using laser cutters at the highest level in the UK and around the world, forging their own creative practices and small businesses. From the custom jewellery maker, to the table-top game developer, magician's assistant, architectural model maker to the rapid prototyper and beyond. We're less interested in geeking out over the technology than we are in what amazing things our customers can make!
