This might be worthwhile; they have a lot of cool designs.
Link didn’t work but the website shows a Lifetime subscription for $2000.00. Little out of my price range
Huh. Here’s the text:

with all the Issues and Health Problems the World is Facing.
This has put a Strain on Many Folks Financial Situations and Many People
are Trying new Ways to make a Living using Lasers and CNC Routers and
even Scroll Saws and other Crafts to make Products and Sell them.
And, of course, Many other Folks are Finding that During the Lock Downs
and other Things going on that They have Time on Their Hands and are
Learning New Skills and Trying New Hobbies.
To get to the Point, if We are able to Take all the Emails and Messages
We get as Truth then a Lot of our Customers would Love to have a
Lifetime Subscription but Just Can’t afford the Cost of Coming up
with the $2,000 to get in the Door.
We Do Run some Pretty Good Sales at Times but even Then it is a
Stretch to come up with Over a Thousand or $1,500 to Get In.
So I Talked with Julie and We are Going to Try and Help You While also

Julie and the Crew here at make CNC !!!
Stay Well and Safe Folks !!!
The link you posted worked for me…but all those additional caps in the text were driving me crazy.
I’m sorry to say I have purchased several of their files and found them incompatible with the GF. I could not pull the shapes apart to make them fit on the bed.
I actually tried to sentence-case it, but my app that does that apparently hasn’t kept up with MacOS, and doesn’t work anymore.
They’re not always drag & drop ready for the GF. They often take work to split across multiple files so you can fit them and the sizing & kerf adjustments are all still issues you’ll need to deal with. They’re nice starter files but they’re not Cricut or Silhouette type of ready-to-print.
This is the second special deal they’ve run this year. The last one was so they could merge their two sites’ content together and provide 1 subscription fee for all the content. The lifetime subscription was supposed to go up last year but it didn’t and it hasn’t this year so this special is another play on the same FOMO that folks were accusing GF of for the Premium subscription. If you’re using their files and you can find $500 worth of them that you would really want then it’s a good deal but if you’re just worried you might someday want $500 worth of the files then you might want to give it another thought (that’s 3 years of GF Premium).
There are some lifetime subscribers (the $1500/$2000 version) here if I recall correctly. It would be interesting to know if they’ve every used that many of the files. I’d also be interested in the overlap with Steve Good’s files and even a lot of scrollsaw pattern books out there as well.
I have purchased several of his files and they work great (sometimes a tweak or two are needed… but hey, they are priced right)
One thing to remember when evaluating this offer is that they are always adding content to their offerings so you will not only have access to all of the files currently available but to all additional files that become part of their offerings in the future.
For those interested in this offer, don’t wait. I received my invoice yesterday because they have reached their goal of 100 subscribers and the offer ends at midnight on Friday 13.
