I've been following this site for awhile now, however  I finally decided to join today :D  so this is my first real post.
This is an xda 1U cap that I want to share, I am still designing the final touches, so any input would be great  :thumb:

That is stunning! What alloy is it?

I have a few zinc/pewter? IBM caps from several years ago that have acquired a "patina" that is pretty well impossible to remove.
“The mass of Trump companies is justifiably called Byzantine. It’s a deliberate labyrinth of connections, some of them intended to maximize Trump’s tax benefits — like the company that supposedly owns Trump’s planes and leases them to the other companies, all of which are just Trump, allowing for a double-dip on deductions. Other companies seem to exist for no purpose other than to make investigating Trump’s finances more complicated and more difficult to penetrate.”

Thank you I appreciate that you think it looks good.
I haven't made this keycap yet, I am still deciding on what materials and finishes to try out.
Hopefully I will have something made by next month.
