Walnut blasting? Nah...laser blasting

Power cleaning with 1000 watt laser, to clean the intake valves.

Looks like it's much cleaner and quicker. Do you think it's possible to use laser to clean our N54's intake valves?

The only problem I see is the aforementioned "what about the other side of the valves" problem. I think I'll just stick to walnut blasting.

I do think turning the valves isn't impossible to do and would solve the problem. At issue at least to me is the cost of a 1000 watt laser. I don't think a DIY or shop could afford that.
Great idea however...
