Dary's tank!

I pretty much had tried almost every suggested remedy trying to get some of these canisters apart including a suggested assortment of oil filter wrenches, vice grip like wrenches, strap wrenches etc,.. the only thing that worked for me was the metal water filter canister wrenches ( pictured earlier ) with the longer than average handle ,... All I had to do was just design something to hold everything safely,steady and securely while you put butt puckering pressure on the wrench .... ( of course my canisters were extremely tightened ) , the average hand tightened canisters I'm sure would loosen just fine with the supplied plastic wrench.

Got the laser, it's identical to yours. It blows holes thru cardboard boxes pretty fast. My old acrylic aquarium is spreading the beam too much. Did you cutoff all flow before you got yours working?

I wear protective glasses with mine and angle it diagonally through the glass/acrylic. It's attached to a DIY tripod. My laser is a little upgraded. You have to buy it piece by piece so it's legal. No one/pets in room with me while using. Careful lasering

I didn't cut off flow with mine but I'm sure it'll prob be better (?). Your glass ( acrylic ) maybe thicker than mine also... I didn't have much trouble blasting what I needed to do anyways .Yep it'll burn a hole thru a cardboard egg carton pretty quickly

I think super clean glass and a tripod may do the trick. Mine came with all parts and I don't see any modification I could make to better it.
