I think I'm just not the target demographic for this. Which is a shame because I bet they are going to look gorgeous.

It's definitely not for everyone. I think it's a good value for what it is: an extremely niche product, made accessible for a reasonable price. For people who are willing to spend upwards of 200 dollars for hammer or mkc cases, this one is actually cheaper. It's even price competitive with TEX aluminum cases even with the acrylic mid piece. This case will definitely be one of the most unique around  for a long time.

Yeah, a niche product in a niche hobby does not a large demographic make :p

Yeah the price looks amazing. I almost pulled out my wallet, then I thought "Wait, do I need this?". Looking forward to photos from you guys

I grew up racing motocross and carbon fiber was the crème de la crème. I used to drool over cf exhausts. I knew I'd be in on this buy before I even finished reading the title.

Since this is getting so close to fruition, would any one have any recommendations for shielding a pcb from the case? I know ngt mentioned using a sheet of rubber but would just a sheet of neoprene stuck to the bottom half work?

Neoprene should do just fine as long as it's not too thick. Basically anything that isn't conductive and has a little bit of cushion.

Wait why do we need insulating material between the pcb and case??? Isn't carbon fibre non-conductive anyway?

I'm not sure why it would be needed either or at least I don't remember why. As the case is empty in the middle for those who didn't take the middle piece, the PCB should not be in contact with the bottom of the case, should it?

With a board that has an SMT controller using 3/8in spacers the usb ends up pretty close to the bottom plate but not enough to short.
People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

The dumber the reason the more it must be done

Pretty sure orders are closed since hwood's already placed the order for the plates. We might have left overs or something, you could always try and ask.

Orders still open.

Up until this point, the company I'm currently going with has been pretty prompt in their responses, but for some reason getting this final quote seems to be taking absolutely forever.

Hello Hwood!


Did you get your quote back from the shop? I hope they will not take as long for the machining as they did for the quote!  :))

This shop is just being unprofessional at this point with the lack of updates. I have another in line that seems pretty happy to take on the project (and even recognized it was a keyboard)

Has the money been sent yet or are we still waiting to hear back from this new place? I was wondering if I could get my money back, kinda lost interest in 60% at this point.

Otherwise putting my set up for sale. Standard plate + Acrylic Mid, paid $127 total.

Branching out my range of searching, just emailed around 10 new places both in Virginia and elsewhere. Many of these places specialize in smaller projects over industrial stuff, so I'm assuming these will work out much better. It's taking longer than anticipated by a long shot, but rest assured I will get these cases done.

Yeah, I feel ya there. I really got this started because I was super into 60% then. Even though I kinda moved on from the layout, still really liked the idea and wanted to see it completed :thumb:

Could I get a PM/refund as well? Paypal address is mxraca277@gmail.com. I asked 2 weeks ago and I thought you said you were going to let someone take over my order? Next step will be a claim through paypal.

Awesome! That's pretty good news. I may have to actually start finding a PCB/switches/how to make a keyboard.  :blank:

Another update: still talking with 3 separate places, though I'm almost surely going with one already. They've been great with quick responses (usually within 10-20 minutes) and right now are testing something out for me. So expect an interesting update Monday, possibly updates from the other two places sooner.
