Check out our buyer’s guide for the best laser cutters on the market. Plus an introduction to laser cutting, services, and materials. The cutting process was one of the earliest processes to be discovered, which used a laser beam. Ever since its discovery in the 1960s, laser cutting has become an extremely common process in many industry sectors. However, in recent years home and office laser cutting machines have become accessible and affordable. Once strictly used by industrial manufacturers, laser cutting is increasingly adopted by small businesses, product designers, makers, and even hobbyists. In the following article, we’ll provide insight into the best laser cutters on the market – ranging from hobbyist to semi-professional machines.

DAMIAN D’SILVA IS trying to explain to you what bolu koku is. We’ve never heard of

DAMIAN D’SILVA IS trying to explain to you what bolu koku is. We’ve never heard of it, and maybe you haven’t either. Which is the whole point. The heritage chef’s greater mission is to educate Singaporeans about some of the sweeter things in life that we don’t even know exist. Such as this traditional Eurasian cake that is said to be the precursor of kueh bolu – the tiny, crispy-on-the-outside, fluffy sponge cakes traditionally baked in a special mould over a charcoal fire. Bolu koku, on the other hand, has a sponge base but with grated coconut, brandy and spices that fill the kitchen with an amazing fragrance. “Eurasians aren’t just known for making sugee cakes or pang susie,” says Chef D’Silva. “We do a lot of different cakes and kueh such as bolu koku and blueda – which is a Dutch cake that’s like a torte, which uses toddy instead of baking powder to make it rise.” Chef D’Silva is one of the champions of artisanal recipes who will be demonstrating how to make bolu koku at Kueh Appreciation Day (KAD) on July 28 as part of the Singapore Food Festival. Organised by Slow Food Singapore, the annual event started out in 2015 to draw attention ...

The bottom blowdown valve features a unique angle design that offers quick and problem-free clearing particulate and dissolved solids from the bottoms of steam and hot water boilers. Additional controls promote trouble-free operation over a longer lifetime.

Two styles of quick-open angle blowdown valves are available for high pressure conditions – pneumatic-powered or manual actuation...

Harvest season is always hectic, but late spring planting this year will mean an especially busy

Harvest season is always hectic, but late spring planting this year will mean an especially busy time for farmers over the next few weeks. The Illinois Department of Labor urges farmers not to forsake safety as they race to bring in the 2019 crop. “Harvest season reminds us how important farmers are to Illinois’ economy and our way of life. But this busy time also brings additional risks to agriculture workers,” said Michael Kleinik, director of the Illinois Department of Labor. “We want farmers to head home to their families safe and sound at the end of each day.” Vehicle safety is an especially important focus this time of year. Tractor overturns are the leading cause of fatalities in the agriculture industry, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. These accidents result in about 130 deaths each year nationwide. “The roll overs and left-hand turns by farm vehicles on roadways seem to be the top two safety issues,” said Dave Newcomb, Ag Rescue Program Manager with the Illinois Fire Service Institute. While tractor roll-over accidents most often occur on the farm, roadways also pose a major safety hazard. Too of...

Why You Should Explore The World Of Sicilian Red Wines

Sicily is better known for its red wines, even though they are only about a third of the Mediterranean island’s output. Many a pizza or pasta dinner has been accompanied by Sicily’s inexpensive, ubiquitous red wine Nero d’Avola.  The island hosts a large number of red wine varietals. International varieties include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. More interesting are the several dozen, ancient, indigenous red wine grapes, in particular: Nero d’Avola, Nerello Mascalese, Frappato and Perricone Nero d’Avola is Sicily’s best-known red wine grape and, at 18% of vineyard acreage, 34,000 acres, its most widely planted. The grape, grown all over Sicily, is named after the seaside town of Avola in Sicily’s southeast corner in the Syracusa region. Plantings of Nero d’Avola have begun to appear in Australia, and to a lesser extent California, although 98% of all plantings of the varietal are still in Sicily. It reaches its most sophisticated expression, however, in the neighboring province of Ragusa, to the west, where along with Frappato it forms the basis of Sicily’s only DOCG (Denominazione di origine controllata) appellation: Cerasuolo di Victoria. Nero d’Avola, also known as Cal...

Taming The Beast: Pro-Tips For Designing A Safe Homebrew Laser Cutter

Homebrew laser cutters are nifty devices, but scorching your pals, burning the house down, or smelling up the neighborhood isn’t anyone’s idea of a great time. Lets face it. A 60-watt laser that can cut plastics offers far more trouble than even the crankiest 3D-printers (unless, of course, our 3D printed spaghetti comes to life and decides to terrorize the neighborhood). Sure, a laser’s focused beam is usually pointed in the right direction while cutting, but even an unfocused beam that reflects off a shiny material can start fires. What’s more, since most materials burn, rather than simply melt, a host of awful fumes spew from every cut. Despite the danger, the temptation to build one is irresistible. With tubes, power supplies, and water coolers now in abundance from overseas re-sellers, the parts are just a PayPal-push away from landing on our doorsteps. We’ve also seen a host of exciting builds come together on the dining room table. Our table could be riddled with laser parts too! After combing through countless laser build logs, I’ve yet to encounter the definitive guide that tells us how to take the proper first steps forward in keeping ourselves safe while building our ...

Grenfell Tower cladding identified as cheaper and more flammable option dezeen-logo dezeen-logo

The cladding used in the Grenfell Tower renovation has been identified as a cheaper and more flammable variety, amid confusion over whether the material is legal in the UK. The cladding used in the recent renovation of the west London tower was the cheaper of two options offered for the job by manufacturer Omnis, according to The Guardian. The Reynobond PE (polyethylene) panels selected over the Reynobond FR (fire resistant) panels were £2 cheaper per square metre. The aluminium-composite panels, which have a core made of the flammable plastic polyethylene, were installed as part of a recent £8.7 million overhaul of the 24-storey tower near Notting Hill. The cladding was quickly identified as appearing to help to spread the fire – which broke out at 1am last Wednesday, and has killed at least 79 residents. London firm Studio E Architects and contractors Rydon oversaw the refurbishment of the 1970s building, and completed the work last summer. Rydon claims the works met all fire regulations and health and safety standards. But chancellor Philip Hammond has claimed the cladding – which is banned for high-rise buildings in other parts of Europe and America – is illegal in the UK. ...

Women Get an Unwanted Surprise by Mail: You’re Pregnant! (They’re Not.)

Chelcie Gette’s mother called her early Tuesday morning to tell her she had gotten something in the mail. The two went on FaceTime and opened it together. “It was a cute little card congratulating me for my soon-to-be baby,” Ms. Gette, 27, said. There was one hiccup. “I knew I was not pregnant, so it was very confusing,” Ms. Gette said. “My mom thought this was my way of telling her I was pregnant!” It’s likely that thousands of women across the country in their mid-20s to early 30s received such a package this week: correspondence from a stranger congratulating them on their pregnancy, along with several gift cards for baby products. Many of the women who received it, though, weren’t pregnant. The card was purple and had a cartoon avocado with a heart over its pit. It read: “Holy guacamole! You’re going to avo baby!” Inside was what looked like a handwritten note, signed with a heart from “Jenny B.” It said: “Congratulations!!! I’m so excited for you! I hope you like these.” Included were a handful of coupons, five gift cards that amounted to $245 and a receipt proving their value. Lena Ghamrawi, a 27-year-old lawyer who lives in Silver Spring, Md., said she opened her own card...
