HEY CHAD!! What laser cutter are you using??

I was thing about building a CNC laser cutter to cut my own balsa / foam for scratch builds. What are you guys using?

Also, can anyone else recommend a DIY kit/site?

Aww, come on! $9k can buy A LOT of #11 blades -- and setup is free!
#11's are highly over rated. Go to Wally World and buy a 100 pack of Stanley Heavy Duty Utility Blades. Since they are double ended you get 200 cutting blade tips. Price is about $18 with tax. They handle foamboard for many more cuts than #11's. CNC with a Drag Knife is MUCH cheaper than $10.5K

This one was developed for foam cutting:
