Talking Frog Machine

Hello all,
While I’m super excited about my newest random project, I’m bummed because my machine spontaneously stopped cutting through in the middle of the last cut in this project. I was able to cut the last bit and finish it off by doing multiple passes with the laser. I’m now on my third exchange of emails with support, so I hope to have it up and running again some day. I got past the part of the support conversation in which I photographed my lenses and windows, which are all fine, and yes, my fan is clean. I only got the machine at the end of October, and haven’t used it that much yet. I sent them images of the Gift of Good Measure not cut though, but what with the holidays, the conversation is gong at a rate of one email per day. Anyway, at least I can sit here and crank my frog. I’m practicing making him sing Deck the Halls.






Thanks for looking, and happy holidays!

The frog is brilliant (will you make Toad next?). Sorry to hear about your laser, though.

Aww, that frog is sweet! I love automata! Here is a fun book I have on my shelf. I think your project would fit right in!
