When you pre-ordered, you probably didn’t expect it to come for at least half a year. Two and a half years is an insane amount of time to wait for it and it’s not as if you would forget the matter entirely considering how much the machines cost… However, I was under the impression this was a product which was ready for order. I’m now wondering if I’ll have to change my initial business plans which were going to center on Christmas related items at first because I won’t have time.
I’m not in a position in my life where I can wait 2.5 yrs on a supposed/ promised possibility for a result. I’m in my early 20’s so if one thing doesn’t work, it’s time to move on to the next.
I’m trying to get the right timing for leaving my current job and starting a small business. On that timescale, 3 weeks is enough to make me anxious when I have not even heard back from glowforge with a confirmation of my order. If I had a tracking number, I wouldn’t be on edge.
For all I know, it might not just be 3 weeks either. I’m new to this community so I have no experience to reassure me this wait time might not be further delayed. Just as 6 months to a year of wait time turned into 2.5 yrs of waiting for you, for all I know this 3 weeks could really be 3 months. That’s almost too long for it to work with my personal plans. So I turned to the community for guidance.
