When we have blogged before about folks laser-cutting old records to make stuff, readers have been quick to point out that laser-cutting vinyl is dangerous because it releases chlorine gas which, in turn, presents two hazards: A) you don’t want to breathe it (and probably shouldn’t just vent it into the atmosphere), and B) it will corrode the metal parts of your equipment.

Well, Andrew Hyde and Matthew Wettergreen of Record Monsters seem to have figured out how to do it. But, for perhaps understandable reasons, they don’t give any details about their process. And they’re using it to make these cool wooden-dinosaur-style models out of old records. More pics of the prototype in their Flickr set, and an (already-funded) Kickstarter here. [via Dude Craft]
