Laser Cutter Gas Containment Chamber

Fume Containment Box

I saw this post over at the Make Magazine Blog.  This is an interesting method of containing the exhaust gas on a particularly nasty material.  It basically puts the work in a box with an IR transparent window.  The box has a fitting to suck out the fumes.  It uses a polished silicon wafer as the laser window that was bought off eBay.

I probably would have put it in a Tupperware box, because the seal might be better and it is probably more resistant to the nasty fumes.  I could have used this when I tried my vinyl record cutting.
