Picked mine up at UPS just now. Upside down and ripped box

I haven’t looked inside yet, I’m still clearing out a spot in my office as we speak. It looks ok on the inside. But it was obviously upside down and someone tried to use that hole as a handle. I’ll know in a few hours.



OUCH! I hope everyting is okay once you get unpacked.


Yeesh, that’s stressful. I hope all is well on the inside.

I hope it is safe! Mine is supposed to be on it’s way. I am planning on picking it up at UPS in hopes that one less time handling it, will make it more likely to be in one piece. I will have to go with my son, Tesla Model S, or fiance’ with a long Prius wagon in order for it to fit inside! That’s ok because I can’t lift it on my own anyway. :wink:

It’s the shape of the box and the weight distribution that make it weird to carry on your own. I can carry the 80lbs, but the handles are on the bottom ends. Also, the top of the box “slides off”.

This was obviously a seasonal worker. She had on street clothes and a UPS vest.

Good luck – hopefully everything is ok. Also, love the bumper sticker and license plate.

Mine was also delivered this way, but it seemed to survive the experience.

Everything was fine. Got everything setup and a few burns in. I also used the GlowForge.

Merry Christmas! Mine took 769 days from when I ordered it. I can’t believe it’s here! It’s much larger than I could picture. It’s also pretty loud! Not sure how many late night burns I can do with this at that volume.


Let us know how it looks once you open it. (like I reallly needed to say that)

Seeing your seats flipped up kinda makes me miss my Element!


I like the vanity plate. :smile:


I was thinking the same thing on the plate. So glad that it is working for you @tonybarnhill. Despite the box damage.
