Trimming the exhaust vent

The exhaust vent inside the K40 juts in quite far and actually obscures the laser path when Y is zero.

Unfortunately taking out this vent to trim it on the bandsaw require removal of the gantry that is in the 

way, in turn this would require re-aligning mirrors.  I decided to do it differently.

       Success!

Ooops...

Incidentally, later I discovered that I did not trim enough to clear a 3D printed air assist nozzle and had to trim for the second time.  So, if you decide to do this, be more generous in trimming. :-)
