Hey Tom,

I have been blocked from posting on the forum because I have cancelled my order. Sadly, even after I have placed a request to still be able to participate, my request was declined. Which is too bad, I don’t have any ill wishes towards the project or the community.

Either way, I had ordered a Full Spectrum Muse while waiting for the Glowforge to show up, and it has arrived. The Muse is a piece of garbage, and crashed almost immediately after a week or two of operation. Full Spectrum has horrible customer service and only issued a refund after lofty steps and BBB intervention. I have since ordered a Chinese laser and have been doing my own experiments for upgrades and tweaking to make it an amazing and helpful tool.

If you happen to wonder to my corner, message me back at tomvelure@

take care,
