Swiss cheese bottom row is when the bottom row is absolutely teeming with holes.

Update 4/30/2018: oof

Final quotes have just arrived, and they're actually a lot higher than I expected them to be. I am considering running this at a lower volume because I do not believe I can reach MOQ otherwise with this increased price. The new case would cost near $550, and the PCB, plate, gaskets, and screws would end up costing more. The revised kit pricing would be around $675, which is unacceptably high to me.

I'm going back to the drawing board a bit to see if I can make any changes that lower the price at all.

I am also now considering overseas manufacturing, but as a complete newbie in the field, I don't know where to go and what to use. As a student with finals week approaching, I don't even really have the time to look into it at the moment.

What do you guys think of this change in plans?

PS: If you've got another source I could look into for machining, let me know.

PPS: Also considering running 2 cases and ending the project.

I think taking your time to get this project done at an affordable price and in the hands of more people would be a worth while endeavor.

This project would be done at an affordable price for fewer people. Now that I'm looking at more affordable low quantity options, I can get as few units of this board made as possible, as was the original intent.

I'm currently looking at quantities of 2, 5, and 10 boards made from a few different recommended manufacturers.

If you're looking to get it manufactured in the US, then this is one of like six projects that has gone the same way.

If you'd like to pursue overseas manufacturing, there are plenty of other designers around here who I'm sure could connect you.

A spare set of gaskets would be sent out with every plate, but now that we're moving away from mass production into small scale private production I'm not sure.

Gaskets are silicone so they won't degrade like rubber.

I've moved manufacture of this project to the East, and thus, the original intent of getting a very low quantity buy can be re-fulfilled. 2-5 MEMEs will be made, and none will be available publicly.

This post marks the death of the project for the public.

This has certainly been a learning experience and I will take everything into my next project, which will also be not only gasket mounted, but also cheaper.

Thank you for your continued interest in the project.

Apologies for those of you who I accidentally hyped.
