I am not able to take the whole Glowforge outside but getting the crumb tray outside would not be so hard. and cleaning with a garden hose or sprayer you would use on the side of the house that you would not consider near the electronics would be ok on the crumb tray,
What I would like is a way to make one light gray so easier to see against dark wood.
I tried hose cleaning on the PRU tray…with less than stellar results.
I suspect it really needs to soak - I’m going to try an oil drip pan and some Simple Green when the time comes for this one to get a bath. (I brush it off frequently with a stiff brush and it’s held up really well for over a year…doesn’t need cleaning yet.)
it’s a big plastic tub that contractors use to mix small batches of concrete on the jobsite. If you have some home improvement store like Home Depot (we call them “big box” stores) or even a contractor’s supply house. They are pretty sturdy and fairly shallow because contractors mix the concrete with a hoe and then use a shallow shovel to get it out. They get beaten up a lot with the shovels & hoes so they’re thick polypropelene and pretty cheap (the largest one here is about $12 - 15 Euro).
The amazon link is a flat shallow pan to fit under a wire cage dog crate, I suspect that bit you worked out though. I think the important thing is the crumb tray fits as it is only about 2.54 cm deep
The zep product is also available on amazon.co.uk seems to be listed with the engine degreasers but that sounds like overkill to me.
