    4. Laser Don'ts
      1. Never ever ever ever leave the laser unattended. A fire could break out at any moment and destroy everything. There is a paintball C02 fire extinguisher in addition to the big fire extinguisher.
      2. Don't ever cut lexan / polycarbonate. It produces hydrochloric acid during the cutting, which will eat up everything inside the laser and in the exhaust system.
      3. ^ Same goes for PVC
      4. Don't leave your laser 'slag' in the laser cutter.
      5. Don't leave your laser scraps in a pile on the laser table.
