So, I don’t know how common my situation is, but… while waiting for my 'Forge, I joined a makerspace to get access to lasers. And quality materials sourcing is a bit difficult; the makerspace has a bit of retail which is REALLY convenient, but isn’t very good about keeping things in stock, and is a limited selection to begin with.
Would you consider opening up the proofgrade shop to those who don’t have their forges yet? Even if I have to dial in the settings on a non-GF laser, having access to quality materials that I can reliably order online would be a big boon to my process.
(Plus, you know, I’d be spending more money with you as opposed to someone else…)
