Hello Brendon, I would really like to sign up for the induction. I am not a member yet but have signed up in December and completed the questionnaire , I have pledged towards the new embroidery machine and been to two open evenings .

I have used Trotec laser cutter for a few years and am quite familiar with how they work so this wouldn’t be a new concept to me at all, just familiarising myself with your set up really.

I have a bit of a time sensitive commission for LGBT+ history month next month that I would really appreciate being able to get done asap so this would be amazing if there was some way I could get in on the induction this time round ?

let me know if you think this could be possible :sun_with_face:

Hi Holly.

Inductions are usually reserved for members, for the simple reason that you can’t get Tool Control access to turn on the laser if you are not a member.

Given your timing needs, we can do the following:

  1. I’ll give you the space so long as a “full” member doesn’t request the place by 5pm today.
  2. I’ll note that you have done the induction but won’t request Tool Control access.
  3. Once your membership is confirmed, you can let me know, and I’ll then request access for you.

In the mean time, you can always request members (including me) to help you by operating the laser on your behalf.

Hi Holly. You are confirmed for the 24 Jan Laser induction.
You don’t need to bring anything.
You may wish to bring a memory stick to copy the induction documents for future reference.
If you would like to make a £5 donation, please bring the exact amount.
If your circumstances change and you can’t make, please let me know asap so that I can fill your space.
See you then!

Im so sorry I didn’t see this sooner! I have been pulling huge hours at work because of SWEP getting people off the street because of the cold , it’s been non stop for me.
I know its really un likely but there is no possibility that you or anyone else could run me though the basics this coming week/ next week ? I can of course bring a donation, Im so upset that I didn’t get to this sooner!

Thank you for going out of your way to get me on the induction

Hi Holly

Option 1: If your membership is active, then you can use the laser directly, once you have been inducted.
I can arrange an induction for you (and whoever else is available at that time)

Option 2: If you are not yet a member, a member can operate the laser on your behalf.
Either I can find a time to work with you, or you can post to the forum and find someone available at a time that suits you.

My Membership is not active yet, Thanks for getting back so quickly.

Do you know when the laser is free next week if at all? as i’m not a member I cant see that so perhaps I can be more specific when i see if anyone can host me as their guest .

Really appreciate your assistance on this !

Hi Holly,

Outside of our member’s meeting (starting at 7pm on Monday) or the welding induction on Thursday (also starting at 7), I am happy to run the laser with you an evening next week. I’m available til late. One thing to keep in mind is materials must be preapproved (e.g. ply that’s explicitly laser safe). Let me know what works best for you.
