Laser Rust Remover

So when are we all going to chip in to buy one of these for use at Cub Fests? Plus, I wonder how long it would take to cook a steak.

Could I use one on the hair on my neck? I am tired of shaving it!

Pretty neat. I can see a lot of industrial and commercial applications for the laser. If you were in the tractor restoration (painting) business, might be worth the investment.

Not sure it would cook a steak, it didn't harm the guys finger.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Me to. It would have everybody waiting in line at the Bash to use it. :lol: However, at over $50,000.00 I doubt my shop will ever have one of its own. :(

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I don't want one.... Rust is the only thing keeping most of my stuff together.

What if you 'seasoned' your steak with a rust dust dry rub first? :{_}:

Well when I shave it's just my neck and the sides of my head anyway, God blessed me in many ways but hair wasn't one of them (not on top of my head anyways).

There was a startup company a couple years ago trying to make a laser razor that they called "Skarp". It looks like it pretty much crashed and burned, but maybe they'll figure it out eventually.
