What is the usual GAP?


#1

Between the Proofgrade goody box arriving and the Glowforge?

I just got alerted this AM that my PF box was coming today.

Trying to decide if I need to panic getting the spot ready.


#2

Got my proofgrade email last night and will get delivery today (perks of living in TN). I got my magic email on Oct 30th. From everything I have seen the average time from email to glowforge in hand is around 22 days. I do not expect to see mine until the 20th, but as late as the 30th.

I’d say slow steady rise to PANIC --> then DELIGHT. :sunglasses:


#4

My gap will be exactly 2 weeks (Glowforge arriving this Thursday the 9th, Proofgrade box arrived Oct 26th). Seems that for most people the gap is about 2-3 weeks. I’d note that I got the UPS My Choice notification about the shipping date of the Glowforge at least a week in advance of the email that Glowforge sent out.

After seeing Joker’s reply. I think I will ramp up to panic quicker than a slow steady rise. :slight_smile:


#6

The slow steady rise had been the last two years. :nerd_face:


#7

Depends on your location (amongst other factors). Some west coasters have gotten the forge before the Proofgrade just because of transit times from Milpitas compared to TN.


#8

ROFLMAO. DUH. No kidding. What was I thinking?


#9

I’m in Kentucky so I figure the journey from CA is going to be a long one.


#10

Don’t worry. You will soon experience time dilation, and it will seem to take forever.


#11

Wh!t city in TN? I am in Knoxville. I think it took about 10 days.


#12

Blountville, just on the other side of Johnson City.

10 days from when? 10 days from PG to GF?


#13

Yes


#14

My Glowforge arrived ahead of my proofgrade; but I don’t think that’s been a thing for several months.
In any case, a little nesting and prepping is probably a good idea, if you can make time among your current responsibilities.

Well I just got an alert that a house we really like has just had a price cut. So now it is in range. so gee now there will be NO sleep.
