I know personally that I'd rather things done right than in a rush - also with COVID and all, the extended timeline isn't a surprise

honestly this is my favourite feeling because it means i didn't spend weeks/months being anxious over something I have no control over.

Update is in fact avail boys.

Paid for the boards last night actually, so they should be shipping soon.  Pray to your preferred gods that they don't have any problems in transit.

As for extras, I ordered a few yes, but not enough to have a large extra sale or anything, mostly just to keep a few on hand to make sure everyone is satisfied once they have them in hand.

Also any QC issues will be worked directly with the factory and replacements will be issued before anything ever ships out, and that doesn't really count as the extras.  The few extras are more of like a just in case.

Now for the not great news, which is the PCB delay.  Because of a few factors, the PCB production has been delayed quite a bit and probably won't be finished till after the new year.  But the fab has been paid so no worries there, just making sure the files are right for how they want them proved a bit difficult in addition to some other things.  So yeah probably won't be finished with PCBs till at least the new year conservatively.

So that means the boards should be shipping to you guys some time in Q1 of 2021 (hopefully but of course no promises, things can always happen and things can change), but I am hopeful for everything being done in that time.

I will be starting QC and working through any potential issues once the boards show up hopefully in the next few weeks, so I mean honestly with the amount of QC to do it would probably take until January anyway since I would be doing it all after work, so the pcb delay isn't all that crazy to digest, I think it will end up being around when the cases would be ready to go anyway.

So yeah that's where we are, probably not shipping till Q1 because of PCBs and the need to do QC but boards are paid for and coming soon and I'll take some pictures so you guys can see the mess that my spare bedroom will be for the holiday season.

Thanks for bearing with me through it and anyone who has emailed or messaged about address changes, don't worry I have seen it and will respond eventually.

awesome, appreciate the update weaston! one small question, did the manu do the cerakoting? in my head i imagined those would be finished after all the anodized units (since they're ano'd silver iirc) but wasn't sure if they'd ship later than the anodized units, and wasn't sure if they were also finished by the same manufacturer that did the ano? looking forward to everything hopefully shipping around new year!

No the board manufacturer does not do the cerakoting, I work with someone local to me.  Yes you're right those units may take some more time to get done, so I suppose I should start qc on the silver units first and get that boll rolling.  The turnaround time on those should still be within what I already mentioned I would think.  But yeah definitely something else to consider as far as all the moving parts.

You guys know if the Alps ABS plate weaston sourced were in fact 1.2mm, or were maybe thinner, say, ~1.0mm? I ask because I can't seem to find a plate cutting service who can do plastic at 1.2mm.

Edit: looks like there were no ABS plates for the official GB, as weaston could only get ABS plates @ 1.5mm. I think this is why, in Taeha Types's GSKT-00 build video, he mentioned that the switches didn't really stay in place that well: it was because @ 1.5mm thickness, Alps switches don't really lock in; the four little switch "wings" are just flexed back to accommodate that weird in-between switch position in the plate.

The way I understood it is that there won't be updates until 2021 with how things are moving. PCBs arriving next year as well as boards going out to us anywhere between January and March, and even that was a "hopefully".

Even without solid updates, it would nice to see some pictures of the boards in his hands at least.

Update time fellas

00 cases and plates were all delivered over the last few days so I'll start slowly QCing them and taking care of anything that needs fixing with that.  Will be taking the units to be cerakoted to my guy sometime soon to get those started as well.  So if you were on the fence about your color please let me know asap.  I will also go through and finally respond to all the address changes and make necessary updates there as well.  Still waiting on PCBs to finish but we have some samples coming soon so hopefully that will all be sorted by the time these are all ready to ship.

For now enjoy the promised picture of my spare bedroom, now keyboard cave, and have a happy holidays.

I didn't opt in for the cerakote option initially so is there a chance that I can pay extra and get the cerakote too?

He hasn't replied to my message on GH either. Guessing he hasn't gone through them all yet, but I do hope he sees my message before the boards go off to cerakoting as I sent him a message regarding that about two months ago.

Please let us know when the boards will go off to cerakoting so we can make sure you see our message before it is too late? Thanks, weaston!
