Not sure how to share this video on this format, so I'll just paste the facebook page.

I saw the video in Facebook under Alan Goddard's page, not sure but I think he has one.... Mind you he has and needs all kinds of exotic tools.

Neat tool to have, don't suppose they sell them at Harbor Freight?
PS don't shoot yourself in the foot.

The units can be bought for (500watt) $380,000. I think that I'd want to take one for a test drive before buying it though!

The "portable" machines has been around for at least six years and sold commercially. That's not the first use of lasers to remove rust, paint or corrosion. It's still a slow process and line-of-sight only. And it still leaves behind loose ferric oxide just like electrolysis method (soda conversion).

Entertaining but not new.

Guess you can do just about anything with a laser. Remove rust. Remove hair. Grow hair. The possibilities are endless.:-)

We have a laser cutting machine at work. It will make short work of cutting any profile in steel up to 5/8 or 3/4 thick. Beats the heck out of a torch or plasma cutter quality wise and beats a water jet time wise, but for thickness of cut, the water jet wins hands down. We don't have one of those, but we know someone who does and have them cut our thicker stuff. No rust removal though.:-(

That's pretty impressive. Looks pretty satisfying to use too.
