Because, yes, I am that new Glowforge owner who made it 50 of the 67 miles home from her studio before she remembered the blast gate was still open.
This is great, now all you need is an electronically controlled blast gate so you can close it with an app when you walk past the sign!
@awebs76 YES!! I need exactly that!
This is so cute!!
@rvogt Thanks! Hope it works!
I put a magnetic door sensor on my gate, and plugged the gf into a smart outlet. I turn the gf off and on by opening & closing the gate.
@johnj Wow!! That’s amazing!
Lol, definitely cute!
@ptodd Thank you!! So far so good. No more return blast gate closing trips!
Great reminder! I need one for my garage that says “Take off you sunglasses!” since I want them to stay in the car but they always end up in the kitchen instead
@jamely Thanks! Oh yeah, bringing in the shades is a pain.
I know the way my traitorous brain works, it would only take a few days of having a sign like this for it to turn completely invisible.
@chris1 I’m worried about this too. Thinking of making a second sign with an attachment that overlaps the lock on the door. Can’t get out without physically MOVING the sign. Hahahaha
Very cute. I hope it serves its purpose.
@Marcello Thank you! So far, so good!
Hang it on a string from the ceiling that you have to bump into. Then it’s always going to be really in your face. Prevents invisibility.
@jamesdhatch Good plan!! My studio ceiling is only 6 feet high; it wouldn’t be difficult!
