How to Make Money With a Thunder Laser

Looking for your next side hustle, I can’t wait to share some ideas on how to make money with a Thunder Laser!

When my husband retired from the military in 2018 we knew we needed to start our own business.

I had already established a pretty good following on social media through our woodworking business.

After the last few years, and having a hard time keeping up with custom orders, we knew it was time to step up our side hustle.

After a ton of research on laser engraving cutting machines, we knew Thunder Laser was the company we wanted to work with.

I have heard “How did you afford such an expensive machine?” The truth is you can pay it off quickly especially if you are producing products that people want.

Let me tell you a little about the machine we chose and why!


The Nova 35 laser engraver is one of Thunder Lasers’ most popular machines. It is available in 80w or 100w and has a 35″ wide cutting area.

I love that this machine is made right here in the USA. Thunder laser stands behind its products 100% and its US-based customer support.

Knowing I can get support from someone local is so important to me.

Let’s talk about some bells and whistles, this machine has so many!

Next is the Hybrid-Servo motor the LeadShine HBS57 closed-loop stepper motors which are capable of engraving speeds up to 39″ per second.


The pass-through doors allow you to work with pieces larger than the size of the bed.

I could go on and on about all the accessories but I want to get to the main point, making MONEY!
