Has anyone cut fiberglass before?
Both raw and expoxied
Mostly small holes/slots.

If you can get it to cut at all, it will char badly. The 'glass' will not cut, and the epoxy burns.. Try cutting a hole in a old circuit board and you will see what I mean.. A cnc router would be a much better choice..

Or a table saw with a laminate blade. Wear a mask!

Thanks, too bad. Just for the 'need mask' reason is why I wanted to laser the cloth.

That's what I do when I want the neighbors to enjoy what I'm working on too:D
