Due to a failure in one of the shock absorbers, there has been a period of un-even pressure on the hinges of the laser cutters lid. This has ultimately resulted in one of the hinges totally being destructed. The rather not appropriate material (cast iron) did not help neither. BRM (the manufacturer) has been informed and will send replacements in due course, but this may take some days. In the meantime, please be carefull and if you need the lid in the ‘open’ position, for examply when you adjust the lens, we suggest you use a cardboard tube to support the lid.
