Sorry- wish I'd have had the foresight to pick up an extra or two for such occasions... Good luck- hope you find one!

Thank you... I hope I can find one.

What I could also do is that if I get the CAD file, I can ask my mechanical engineer friends to cut me one if possible.

UPDATE

The machine shop seems to be overloaded with other projects. With some of their tooling breaking it's created quite a queue. I have no news as to when this will be done and I don't want to keep saying "oh next week".

I apologize for the long wait and I hope we can get this figured out soon.

UPDATE

The update is that there is no update. I didn't receive a status email from my manufacturer this week. I've checked in as well and no reply. Hopefully he's just really busy with our weights!

In other news, I would like to publicly express my frustration and my apologies with how long this is taking. I understand that 3 weeks were wasted just waiting on materials but it's still taking too long. The good news is that I am still waiting for Duck to send me the CAD files for the Viper/Eagle, so it's not like I have a GB on hold. At this point I'm shopping around for other local manufacturers.

Any good news regarding a Viper/Eagle weight? Loved your Octagon weight :)

I'm thinking that there won't be a GB. I might just open an interest check, and buy what I think the quantities would be. That way people aren't waiting forever for their weights while I hold on to their money. It's just sad that my weight is taking just as long or longer as it takes Duck to ship the keyboards to us.

I believe he's saying that he'll just put in an order and have them up for sale, rather than the typical GB method where you wait for everyone to prepay and then do the order.

Will we have a way to put in a deposit? I'm 100% in for two Viper weights.

@merlin64 I don't mind the wait on GBs like this one, first of all since I am still using my Orion through all of this, it's not something that I 'need' for the board to be functional. On top of that plenty of GBs experience delays in manufacturing, shipping, etc. which is understandable, the thing I care most about it the quality of the product. If after all this time I receive a perfectly machined and finished weight, I will be happy. If I wait all this time for a dented/dinged weight that looks like ****, obviously the time will seem wasted. It's all a matter of perspective I guess.

I would be down to buy/pre-order a Viper/Eagle weight today, no matter the wait time, no matter the cost. What worries me about you buying them all and then just selling them is me not getting one.

Anyway, just some food for thought, keep us updated on the Blackbird and Orion weights!

I'm just trying to find a better solution. I said this GB wouldn't last as long as my previous one, but it's getting close. I'm already pretty confident about changing manufacturers but that also might come with higher costs etc etc.

I'm open to any and all suggestions. But please hold on to them until I can get an IC thread running. =)

I messaged him a few days ago and got this update, guess he forgot to post about it: 

Quote from: merlin64
I'll be making a post today about the weights. He's done, but I noticed on some of the photos that a plate was scratched, so I asked him to fix it. This was last week and I haven't heard back...he might have discovered more scratched plates and knew I wasn't going to take it.

I just do it to make sure people (and you) know who I am addressing. Makes more sense in threads like the Viper GB where a 'mini GB' for diffusers sprung up inside an existing thread with multiple people coordinating stuffs.

Anyway, hope to see some photos soon! I lined up an engraver for my plate ages ago now I just need to get it!

FYI, if you guys can't get a hold of me here. It's probably because I've been on reddit more. You can contact me via u/merlin36 there.

Reason being, the Seattle MKB community is on reddit so it's been easier for me to give/receive keyboard related advice.

UPDATE

Surprise Surprise...not shipped yet. But at least we are talking shipping now. He's finishing up the engraving on the last of the brass Orions. Everything else is done. So far so good. In other news..I finally built my Octagon V2. haha.

Thanks for the update, Merlin.

If you decide to run a Viper/ Eagle weight, you're going to a different manufacturer, right...?

UPDATE

Weights are in boxes and ready to ship to me! I actually asked him to hold on to it for a bit longer so delay is 100% my fault this time. Not gonna be here this weekend to receive such a large/heavy package figured it would be safer to just put it off for a few more days.

After receiving, plan is to test fit again on a community member's blackbird. Please remember that I have neither of the boards so totally relying on people with Duck boards to do this.

UPDATE

The package is currently out for delivery!! Hurray. I'm so excited to see these done!

QA on my part is next, which involves test fitting once again (this weekend), looking for any crazy defects, and making sure everyone has what they ordered.

Please keep in mind, I haven't charged anyone for shipping yet, so if you haven't alreadym update those PayPal shipping addresses.

Yo Merlin, I've traded my Black Bird. Should I go about trying to find someone that may want my spot or does that person already exist? :P

Maybe you should offer it to the person with whom you traded the Black Bird :)

I did. Didn't seem to know this existed and wasn't interested. I don't mind keeping what I paid for but figured I'd try and get it to someone who has a Black Bird :P
