I used square aluminum tube to encapsulate my C02 laser, It serves well for cooling and holding the ceramic laser inside safe. The laser out end of the square tube was also modified to fit and hold lens holder with proper alignment.
Installed my E-Stop button. This button kills all motors, laser and the Pokey57CNC controller. You must re-home system in Auggie when pushed.
