"Amazing!" exclaims commenter @maureenjacobs1.
User @mark_92abc seems to agree. "I love lasers," he says.
"Does it just take off the grime or does it also remove layers of the wood?" asks @gaberealking.
Video viewer @ryan.kean2014 replies, "It's basically a hand-held laser sander. If it can laser it, it’ll layer it."
"Does this cause any heavy metals in the coatings to become breathable?" asks @sarahmorais88. "This is cool, but makes me worry."
According to cnctlaser.com, "A laser cleaning machine enables you to effortlessly get rid of the toughest rust, dust, oxides, oil and other contaminations as well as paint coatings from metal, plastic, ceramics, glass, stone or concrete. Laser Cleaning is an innovative technology for surface treatment of metals, rubber, plastic, glass, oils, wood and much more. The laser cleaning machine uses a laser beam at the surface of the material to break down the layer of rust or paint, it is a contactless method that only breaks down the layer without causing any harm to the material itself."
