Without any devalue it would be at least 60. Assuming it is the AL1, I have too many things coming.

Can you check your old tracking and see if it departed from Taiwan please?

Undervalued to $100 is perfectly fine with me. I have to pay 23% so best case $77, worst case if they add duty its another 9%, which appears to happen here randomly, then its 32% or $108... at $100 it's only $23, I can live with that :D

So my Taiwanese package arrived today. It was indeed the AL1.

Packaging was pretty bad, when the driver brought it I thought how is there a keyboard in this thin box. When I opened it the board was filthy, marks and dust etc, there was even a cobweb in the stiletto side bit.

After a clean-up I am pretty happy with how it turned out, my only flaws seem to be on the inside. The weight is a mess and oddly the underside of it is clean aside from the machining marks. All the visible exterior pieces seem ok but not flawless, passable for the price.

Some comparison photos with a blackbird below:
195807-0
195809-1
195811-2
195813-3
195815-4

Good thing it arrived safely, despite the somewhat lacking packaging. Looks good.

In that last picture, the seam looks quite big towards the middle. Optical illusion, not tightly screwed together, or ???

Quick update:

Alsoran just shipped 5 kits (/u/homerowco, /u/terrymathews, /u/IIBorNotIIB, /u/Soggy_Stargazer, /u/speaktobrett). The photos look good to me. He will fill in the tracking numbers tomorrow.


There are totally 10 kits left including the replacement ones: Petch, /u/immaterium, odd, Oatburner, FeelHoodMuzik, noricon, MegalaDump, A10J12. These 10 kits, following replacement kits, and the 6 type 2 plates, are manufactured by ALF. The original factory did a bad work and was not cooperative so Alsoran asked ALF for help. I assume ALF will be much more reliable than the previous factory. 6 of the 10 kits have already been finished by ALF and are waiting to be shipped. ALF will ship the 6 kits to Alsoran for QC tomorrow. The left 4 kits need more time to be manufactured. I will have the name list of the 6 kits tomorrow.

I just travelled from the US to Shanghai, China this week. Was being pretty busy. Sorry for the late update.

If the kits you received have quality issues, please send me a PM. Don't send emails to me because I can't access gmail currently in China. You can also send photos to Alsoran (508881408@qq.com). He can't read English tho.

Triangle I think I PM'd you with photos from the kits I got but I can't see them in my sent messages... I don't want to spam you can you confirm if you received them?

@Triangle

I haven't seen any updates for my board yet and I don't see my name on the list of people waiting for their boards.

Can you please check?

You could try using a brass polish and seeing how that goes.
