Just discovered the magic of Alps switches - so much better than Cherry! Eagerly awaiting any leftovers that might be available for sale. :)

No no, those are the bad ones. The ones that keep me awake at night. I'm talking about the ones that came on the AEKII.

Does anyone have an extra Tab key that they wouldn't mind letting go? I bought this set second hand and it came with a broken tab (I bought it knowing that it was broken, tried to do a stem swap but wasn't successful). With people getting replacements soon I'll take any good tab key.

Is it the shorter space bar wire from the Infinity kit? If so, you can have mine as I will not be using it.

Well it's been a long, busy "day off," but I've now got every remaining order boxed up and sorted into two piles: ready to ship, and waiting on blanks. I'm about to start sorting blanks now, hopefully I can get that done tonight. Then it will simply be a matter of weighing all the packages, invoicing the shipping costs, and sending them out.

This is the most progress I've made on this buy in a while, so that's really encouraging. I'm hoping to wrap everything up within the next couple of weeks. Thanks as always for your patience, everyone.

I've been showerthinking about this for weeks: does anyone know how much Massdrop is paying their third party shipping company for sorting and shipping keysets? Could be worth a few bucks extra per set to not put this AMAZING amount of work on the buy runner...

UPDATE: All orders are now boxed, all that's left is weighing, invoicing, and shipping.

My wife and I managed to go through and sort all the blanks last night, and got them boxed up with their respective orders. So I'm going to borrow the postage scale from work some night this week, and get everything weighed. From there I can start calculating shipping totals and get some invoices sent out.

Same here, I'm hoping we are pretty close now though. It's been a couple weeks since his last update, and from what I understand the only things left were weighing, invoicing, and shipping.

No invoice here either. I do have faith that it will come together... but...  when people have been waiting this long, getting 4 weeks of silence is a bit ****.
