About Fred Hayen
45 years as a mechanical design engineer working in the precision medical component metal stamping industry. now less than a year away from retirement I'm looking at getting into Laser engraving as at least a part time business. One of my hobbies has always been wood working and construction. I was even a building contractor in another life. Currently actively looking to purchase my first laser for my personal business use although I have purchased several lasers at well over 200K for my employers over the years. In fact i actually have 2 laser related pattens to my credit. All of which means nothing when it comes to starting and running a laser engraving business. so here to get as much information, help, and even an occasional kick in the pants from those of you that are the real experts.
Central MN & SW WI (I get around LOL)
Wood working, construction, mechanical & architectural design, travel, metal detecting.
Engineering Manager


Planning is just as important as the doing. If life were easy it wouldn’t kill us all.
