About Smoke & Mirrors

Smoke & Mirrors is a UK based online store and online community dedicated to providing quality laser cutter consumables, upgrades and spares as well as  CO2 laser cutters and engravers. We import the best quality spare parts, test them in the UK and provide timely shipping. We also provide LightBurn spares such as the LightBurn camera and the LightBurn bridge kit. At Smoke & Mirrors, we understand the importance of keeping your laser cutter up and running and the reassurance of having quality consumable parts on-hand with no-nonsense.  We specialise in upgrading your old Leetro laser cutter to LightBurn Software compatible machinery.

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! 

What about Just Add Sharks Ltd?

Just Add Sharks Ltd closed due to issues with the timely and cost-effective supply of CO2 laser cutting equipment. G Weike, the Just Add Sharks Ltd supplier changed their standard of stock in 2018 leaving Just Add Sharks Ltd with no reliable equipment supplier for larger machines. Pangolini Ltd (Smoke & Mirrors parent company) is committed to providing service and support to all former customers of Just Add Sharks Ltd during their warranty period and beyond. Pangolini Ltd has developed a relationship with another UK Laser Cutter supplier in order to provide a recommendation for the supply of large CO2 laser cutting equipment.
