I, like you, am a proud GF owner and user. As I read through the forums, I am in awe of all the projects being done,all the support and encouragement given, and all the assistance being provided to new memebers all the time. As more and more folks get their GF and start to discover all the amazing things it can do, I notice more and more new folks join the forum all the time.
A gentle reminder to everyone, and especially the new folks – read the manual. Pay attention to the safety instructions, the operating instructions, the cleaning instructions, and especially the Do’s and Don’ts.
I think you will find this can save you a lot of headaches – and prevent a lot of grief. With such an expensive, complicated, and amazing piece of equipment, it will be well worth your time.
