JLCPCB are ridiculous. I placed the order in the evening of March 23rd and it arrived on Wednesday. That's 4 days from China, including manufacturing and shipping for a total of 42$ for 5 PCBs delivered! Everything was packaged professionally and arrived in good condition as far as I can tell. Looks as well-made as any mass-produced PCB I've seen so far.

Unfortunately some muppet with the German customs office decided it'd be appropriate to charge 20€ customs on a 30$ shipment (the invoice wasn't accessible without opening the foil wrapping and there was no declaration of value on the outside, so I assume they estimated it after X-Raying and going like "Whoa this is one huge chunk of Elektronik! Verboten!" or something). I'll look into getting some of that back.

Now to wait for the rest of the components, yay. JLCPCB Y U SO FAST?!

They have improved then. Usually four days was the manufacturing time alone and then they shipped. Nonetheless one would receive PCBs within one week, or so, from payment.

Es tut mir leid. Unless they removed the option, you could ask them for the declared value of goods at the checkout. I usually go for USD 20,00 and haven't paid customs duties ever.

Now to wait for the rest of the components
For future memory, you can order components at LCSC and have them shipped along with your PCB for free (meaning that you pay solely for the PCB shipment).
Now lay back, relax and take your time. You have 117 diodes to solder which could compromise your mental health. I speak from personal experience.

I can confirm this PCB fitting into a G80-1192 case. Here's some pictures.

EasyAVR now officially supports this board. Make sure you're running at least v3.00.00 beta.4.
Big thanks to metalliqaz.

TalkingTree, thank you for making this PCB and making it open source. I've wanted a full size custom based on QMK for a while now and this has inspired me to get into keyboard diy.
It will be a while before I can finish this but I will post pictures when it is done.

pngu, since you are also in Germany are you interested in selling two PCBs from your order? I do not need 5 PCBs now and would rather not have them lying around.

Hi Ian!

I'm still waiting for the slow boat on the parts that LCSC didn't have stock for, I just checked the tracking and the latest info shown is the parts being handed over to the airline at the 4th of April. As I mentioned in this thread this will be my first time doing surface mount soldering, so I can't really promise anything right now (I feel like selling an untested assortment of stuff is not something I'd want to do); I'll get in touch with you when the rest of the components are here and I turned them into a working board.

If you want this ASAP it's best to order the raw PCBs and parts yourself, JLCPCB are fast and without checking I'm fairly certain you can source the SMD components from Reichelt. I've already been approached by another person who'd like one of these and I told them pretty much the same thing, you'd surely find a way of getting rid of your spares if you decide to make 5 boards.

We really need a group buy for this. Is anyone willing to start it?

Hey pngu,
I meant only the raw PCBS. I didn't think you'd interested in selling full boards :)

I only want to make two and buy the parts for two as thats really all I need right now and if I had 5 PCBs I would feel bad not to finish them all.
For now I've gathered some G81-3000 To scavenge for cases and keycaps. I am just not sure yet if I want to try and also add a plate.

Giorgio, I would buy at least two but I do not want to handle a GB since I am new to this community.

@Ian: Sorry but I have components for 5 PCBs and plan to assemble them, else I would be kind of stuck in the opposite of your situation :P

@TalkingTree: There is an issue with the parts numbers in your post, you list both 22Ohm Resistors and 22pF capacitors with the same numbers. Please update it to save idiots like me from missing parts when ordering (I have the 22pF but no resistors, I'm not quite sure what I did when I ordered but I guess I cancelled the backorder on the resistors because of the 2 month restocking time and then went through the parts numbers in my order and in your post side by side and got the missing components, and "CL21C220JBANNNC" "Resistors" were not missing :P). The BOM on EasyEDA is correct though.

Bad bad me, the part number is correct for capacitors, hopefully no one is short on 22 ohm resistors.
I actually had the same mistake on the other projects as well.
Thanks a lot for the heads up pngu.

Well anyone who knew what they were doing would have tripped on that, I didn't.

Good news is that SMD soldering really isn't quite as hard as I originally thought it to be, just need some flux, a pair of tweezers and moderately steady hands, so this project is definitely more accessible than it might seem. The crystal was probably the trickiest part because my 1mm pointy tip couldn't really reach the pads anymore once it was on there, I'll look into getting some finer tips and a chisel one for my iron.

Thanks for your work, got the resistors in the mail and will report back :)

I'm looking forward to your projects. Thanks for giving this PCB a shot.

I might buy some pcb's soon and I obviously don't need 5 either. Do you want two of them, unassembled?
