Can I cut Brass Sheet ?

Post by mickb » Mon 25 Nov , 2013 11:45 am

Hi there - Can I safely cut brass sheet say 0.2mm thickness with my 50W VLS 4.60 ?

If so what settings would you suggest ?

Thanks

No!

It will not cut any metals. You can etch some metals but the surface would need to be coated. Metal marking compound, anodised, etc.
