My husband and I had watched the Tested review, and we discussed that it might foreshadow a delay. I saw the delay, and went to bed without reading the whole email. We just slept on the bad news.
This morning I got up and read Dan’s email. I see more good things than bad things.
I am honestly quite disappointed about the delay; but I don’t want one of the Glowforges from the left side. I don’t want to send it back. I don’t want to call Rita with problems. I don’t want to hear apologies. I don’t want it to be waiting for repairs. I want it to work. I want reliability.
Aside from reliability, I’m looking forward to these good things:
My head is exploding over the interchangeable head. I know these guys are building a phenomenal laser and they aren’t cutting corners. Many a multi-tool is not a good idea; but if they are as obsessed with quality on future interchangeable heads, then I’ll probably buy some of them, too.
My head is exploding over 50 sensors that nobody noticed. As long as they don’t fail regularly like the O2 sensors on our old Jetta, those are good and amazing things. I’m so excited over the thought that has gone into this. Team GF already figured out that I’m likely to accidentally put something somewhere wrong - and not realize I’ve done it. I’m one who loses my car keys regularly.
Dan’s twins look great in hardwood; but I’m even more gobsmacked over the multi-level engraves on that Glowforge token. Maybe I’m easily pleased; but that looks amazing and I’m so tickled that I get to do something like that.
Thanks for the supplies and for the free designs. That is, to me, unnecessary but very welcome. Thank you. Thanks for extending the warranty.
I think there are other good things here. Lots of them.
I realize that there are folks who don’t agree with me… who won’t use the same features that I will. For sure, there are reasons to be disappointed.
I’ll be ok to wait for a Glowforge from the right side, rather than the left.
