Loren: The Madd Mann: And it wouldn't scorch whatever happens to be sitting 10 feet behind whatever you're cutting. And it wouldn't take a couple MW power source.It's not scorching what's behind--note how the overshoot beam is a big circle, not a point. The laser is obviously focused at only one point. And that thing probably only draws tens of watts.
ReapTheChaos: There's way better handheld cutting tools that cut far better than that slow and awkward thing. A plain old oxy/acetylene torch would have done the same job in 1/4 the time and produced much smoother cuts.
