Hello Steve,

I am inquiring your services to build me a laser harp. I absolutely love your design. I am very anxious to own and use your harp for my music project.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience to discuss the details and pricing info for the harp.

Thank you Steve, hope to hear from you soon…

Best Regards,
Lucio B. Duran

We are interested in creating a custom sculpture integrating a laser harp for our upcoming 2011 productions. The first one would be for our show with the Kansas City Symphony in May. The next would be the Wakarusa music festival in June.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience so we can discuss options.

Hello Steve,

I am interested in purchasing the Laser Harp plans, but they are currently unavailable. Would you be able to give an indication as to when these will once again be available? Alternatively, if you can provide the costings for the actual harp then I may be interested in buying a pre-built version from yourself.

I sold the design of the laser harp last year to a company called Lightwave International. That means I can no longer sell the plans. or produce the units independantly.

I would urge you to sign up for my mailing list to be made aware of any changes in current situation.

Dear Steve,

My classmate and I have seen your project of the laser harp. We are working on a science project. We are from the Netherlands and we are in the 11th grade of pre-university education. The laserharp was very interesting and we would like the built one of ourselves. The only problem is we cannot write the code. Is it possible to get this code from you to upload to the arduino board or is it possible to get the whole software? Our design will be a lot more easier than yours. We would like to use 8 laser beams and that is it. I look forward to your answer.

Yours faithfully

Hi Steve, looks like you have been doing some amazing projects with your cnc machine. I am a professor at the University of Delaware and was wanting to build a three axis machine. Would you recommend what you have?

I have been unfolding forms on Sketchup, feeding them through a laser-cutter and scoring the fold marks so that I can make models out of paper. One of the things that interest me is the ease of shifting scale in the 3d modeling. If I began cutting the forms out of thicker material I would need to account for angles (something like changing the degree of a table-saw), would I be able to do this with a 3-axis cnc?

Loved seeing the projects you have been working on. Just did a clock-modification project with my Freshmen in what we call “research studio.” A conceptually driven art class at the University.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Lance,

Thanks for getting in touch.

Yes I would recommend it – it’s very much a hobby machine (it needs some care and maintenance) but Patrick is a pretty good guy to deal with.

…and yes you will have to account for the thickness of material – probably using a 45 degree conical bit – the basic 3 axis machine will only be able to cut straight down.

Hi Steve – Pencil me in as a buyer if you end up producing a Pitch to MIDI Tracker kit.

Good work!

I have been trying to create some products from cork and have been cutting 24×36 sheets that are 1/2″ thick by hand. I have just recently started thinking about options of machine cutting. Do you know what the best way would be? CNC, laser cutting? I guess I am at the very beginning of my research. Can you point me in the right direction?

Hi Steve i was woundering do you ever make the second modulator system up for people with no electric skills or do you know anyone who dose. PS im on about the Dalek voice. thanks

David Archer July 10, 2012 at 9:00 am

Hi Steve just wondering if you make any of the dalek voice kits to sell to people with no electric skills or do you know anyone who does make them and sells them. thanks…

I saw you plands for your Laser Harp on Instructables.
Will the Sharp GP2Y0A2YK work in place of the two you listed in the parts list?
The Spec. seem to be the same.
Thanks, Larry
