13 July 2022: Everything has been paid for. I'll provide an update on the manufacturing status in the coming weeks. I'll get to cutting case and plate foam by the next update.

31 July 2022:
Cases: Things are moving quickly here. Cases are being anodized and e-coated.

Plates: I've received all FR4 plates. Brass plates are being cut by the case manufacturer and will arrive with the cases.

PCBs: Daughterboards and PCBs have shipped. If you haven't been following in 40s Discord, I decided to add a 6u spacebar option for some sweet sweet symmetry. I didn't advertise this because I made the add mid-groupbuy and didn't have the time to prototype it. This was a relatively easy add since we already had 3u bars and no other layouts needed to be removed to support it. Once they arrive, I'll be able to test it out.

Other Items: Plate foam is done. I still need to order the material for case foam, but that will arrive quickly and will get through my laser queue much more quickly than the plate foam. Off the shelf items I still need to pay for are bump-ons and JST cables. I may op to make my own cables, bet either way, this won't hold us up.

Hopefully things keep trucking along!

25 August 2022:
Cases: The manufacturer is in their QC phase. Hopefully shipping is not too far away.

Plates: I've received all FR4 plates. Brass plates are being cut by the case manufacturer and will arrive with the cases.

PCBs: All PCBs have been paired with their JST cable and Daughterboard and flashed. The 6u spacebar add was test fitted and works.

Other Items: All plate foam and case foam is done. Bump-ons and case screws have been bagged.

16 September 2022:
Shipping is (effectively) complete! There are 2 customers that have been contacted about their order, but everything else is delivered or with the post office. This was pretty quick! Just over 2 months past the end of the purchase period and about 6 weeks before the deadline! Those remaining 2 orders should be taken care of as soon as I receive parts in the next couple of weeks. Extras will go up at as soon as they receive their packages.

Hey guys! We're one week in and things are cruising along. We've definitely sold through enough units to make the whole batch. A couple of notes for those that have already placed orders:

-There was an issue with some orders where shipping was not being charged. I'll need to correct this as there is no free shipping with the keyboard. Look for an email from me over the weekend (likely Sunday).

-There was an extra item that was not having a charge added when placed in the cart. I believe this only impacted one order, and I've spoken with that person. If this has also happened to you, I'll be reaching out soon.

-Some countries are not showing. I've been contacted about India and Indonesia specifically. DM me if you are experiencing this. I've already done one purchase through Paypal invoicing, and will do others if you have this issue.

Spread the word guys! This is a great board and I know you'll enjoy it if you pick one up!

3 days left to grab a board!

I'm still seeing an issue with Shopify shipping. If it says free shipping, it's incorrect. Complete the checkout and I'll reach out to you to sort things. :thumb:

Update bump. Check the 2nd post.
