Hi all - lurker logging in here!

Anyone else having issues with FedEx and Address and communicating this to Senter?

I am in New Zealand and I have now received 2 emails from Senter, just over 1 week apart advising that FedEx is holding my package due to "incorrect zip"

I have replied to him and followed up to confirm the address (it is correct both in my original order and in my replies and I regularly receive FedEx deliveries here!) bu have got no confirmation that this is being resolved or that he has received and understood my response!

 :confused:


Panic over - it has just rocked up here in Auckland!

I'm also in this situation. Did waiting solve the problem?

I didn’t get any interaction from Senter in the process - just two lots of emails saying my zip was wrong according to FedEx and they needed my details.
My address hadn’t changed from the original order, so I just reiterated (twice) that it was the correct address.

The second time I also included a screenshot from the NZ Post address/post code lookup showing my valid address early this morning. I guess this worked and FedEx were actually holding my package locally in NZ - not in China - as it arrived safe and sound and with no issues from customs today.

Got mine yesterday, and build it.
This thing is gorgeous. The silver coating on the brass is mirror like, flawless, absolutly beautiful.

Post pics! I'm still waiting for mine to ship.

I also replied back but no update :(
Not having tracking number is so frustrating lol.
Guess I'll just have to wait.

it is annoying yes!

Like I said, I had no response to any of my replies and I didn't get a tracking number either sent or on my order page...and it still turned up, so hopefully yours will be the same

So my Light Green on Green WKL is assembled with Zealios 78g and ready for caps!

Will be waiting for my GMK Fox to arrive in Q1 22 for endgame, but have a cheapo white and green retro set on order for next week in the meantime.

Overall I am really happy with it! Great fit and finish. Only small "wish" would be a bit more weight. My Polaris is certainly heavier!

I have the PC version of the bottom case. I noticed these machining marks on the inside of it. Sadly these are visible from the outside. Is there any way to remove them? 277841-0277839-1
Especially this black dot.

IMHO if you are not already experienced in trying to re-finish these kinds of materials, I would leave it well alone as you are almost certain to make it worse…

Anybody that has built their Leaf: What do you think of the skeleton plate?  In your experience is it comparable to any other plate material?

Sorry again if out of place but since they don't have a discord I might have a shot here (outside of /mm)

I'm still looking to trade a hotswap PCB for a solder one.

Excited to build mine once I find a solder PCB.

Great board.. love it...



Anyway, all my communication emails about address changes and what-not went to junk.  Imagine for moment if there was like a discord community or something where people could get news, talk about the products, share experience, etc. 

Lol, never mind, dumb idea.

Thanks, I'm in the same boat. Fingers crossed they ship this week and that there are no component issues when we get them!

Nope still waiting  :(

Also, I went with WK, but now I wish I had gone with WKL. If I find someone willing to swap, do I need to swap the PCB and plate, or just the top case?

Update for the last batch crew. I didn't get an email from Senter, but I have it setup so that I can log onto my FedEx account and see any packages that are being delivered to my address from them, and I see that a label has been created about 90 minutes ago from China for a package.

I'm assuming this is the keyboard since I can't think of anything else it could be.

Edit: Just received my shipping notification from Fox Lab.

Just want to mention that mine was supposed to be in the last batch (around 200) based on an email update early October and already dellivered within the mentioned timeframe (mid October). It seems that the part issue in your order makes your situation rather peculiar.

Yeah I was in that last 200 batch email early October then got another email in late October saying parts needed to be remade
Was also confirmed it would be shipped the following week

Now just received another update today saying that parts will need to be remade again

Disappointing that these issues weren't caught/rectified earlier on but appreciate the Senter/the team wanting to provide a perfect product

Same delay for me.

But it's no big deal. I'd rather my order gets shipped with everything working and not scuffed rather than get a defective piece and have to deal with additional shipping.

Same

Also on Team "Last batch to ship > Last 50 needing parts remade > Last 10 needing parts remade again". It is what it is - at least we should be getting A+++ grade Leaf 65% as the parts are being meticulously QC'd.

Does anyone know if the aluminum is 6061 or 6063? The material on my Leaf65 seems a little rough compared to my other boards.

good rule of thumb is every board is 6061 unless noted otherwise, this one included
QFR | MJ2 TKL | "Bulgogiboard" (Keycon 104) | TGR Alice | Mira SE | Revo One | z | Keycult No. 1 | AIS65 | CW87 Proto

Does anyone know a rough estimate when plate files will be released for the Leaf65? I got my leaf65 but I'm waiting on the files so I can build an Alps leaf65. I messaged Senter but no response on any platform (GH and Insta).

since the via layout file was quite barebones, I updated it to have layout options for backspace, leftshift and the bottom row.  I tested it on mine and I think i mapped all the keys correctly.

feel free use this and add to it for iso enter.  I omitted it since the plate doesn't support it.
