A strip heater, to let us bend acrylic (and similar thermoplastics) into more interesting shapes. Should complement the laser-cutter nicely.
Not sure if we could get one second-hand, but http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hotline-Minor-Acrylic-Sheet-Bender-Strip-Heater-/261298129632?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item3cd6950ae0 is for a brand-new one
Expected cost: £460
We now have a strip heater
