wow, yeah, laser engraving is definitely next level.

i actually have the option to swap out my 3d printer printheads for a laser, that i haven't tried yet. it's probably underpowered for metal engraving though, but maybe it's worth a try.

Wear safety glasses since it'll likely reflect off the tin metal. My laser is specific to metals and plastics and a few other materials, even C02 isn't too ideal for metals but with some chemical coating application it can mark the tin but doubtful it'll cut it.

Don't support thieves like ckliang who copied my AIO to resell and is now cloning the mintyPi, support the original creators and not the thieves!

it came with a pair of tinted safety goggles :)

the laser i have is apparently "extremely good at engraving objects such as wood, plastic, leather, paper and even cutting thin materials like plastic" - so, my guess is it probably won't scratch the tin, but if i get brave, maybe i'll give it a try.

i think the likelihood that i lose an eye is slightly lower with the waterslide decals tho
