Well, what’s all this then? Ah! Geeks At Large now has a website of its very own! Our Etsy store will remain open for the time being, but some items may not be available there. This move to an ecommerce site of our own allows me to create bundles/combinations much more efficiently while not making the site a chaotic mess and shipping charges that are way out of line. On the whole, I believe it will be a significant improvement for myself and you, my customers.
To kick off the website, I have a couple of new products for you! Owners of D1 Pro machines can now get replacement laser module cables in 1.5 meter and 3 meter lengths. These cables are sleeved end to end, with shrink tubing holding the ends to the cables. Standard (Classic?) D1 owners with 20W modules, I now have extension cables for the extra power supply cable. These two have the woven mesh sleeve and shrink tubing. Oh yeah, and, uhm, there is Hybrid 1 Proof of Concept version, a solution made specifically for standard D1 owners who have ended up with multiple modules but only one machine to use them on. Hybrid 1 is a smaller general purpose engraver chassis, with about 10″x10″ worth of engraving area, and most all the features of Devil1.
Lastly, I’d like to thank some really awesome people.
Doug Brown of Viper Designed, who has challenged many of my assumptions, mentored/schooled me in areas where I am weak, and is the creator of the Devil1 logo, something he took upon himself to do because “it had to be done.” Did I mention that he’s a pretty awesome guy that lets me listen to his rides purr and roar, shows me some of the things he finds out his way that I’d love am arm to have over on the west coast?
Daniel Gonzales of Alive Pixel, the lead behind the team that built this new website. In the last 6mo or so, we’ve worked together on a lot of new things. Sometimes his products, sometimes mine. We’ve established both a friendship and a business relationship which I hope can be expanded to encompass more of the product designer/makers in the community. Oh yeah, and I get to tell his significant other that no, really, the stuff he does is totally normally for guys like us.
You the reader, the real reason this is all here. Without your support and confidence, Geeks At Large would not be where it is now. To you, my biggest thanks. I will continue to strive to deserve your praise and support.
