I am placing Ashes at a 8 month delivery time from GB ending, that number could potentially go up. I would put Apollo in line with the same delivery time. As for the rumor, it is 100% true, not a rumor, that GMK has a new tooling machine that they have been working to set up. They have been trying to set it up for a few months now so it's only a matter of time before it starts working on new caps. I'm sure there is a lot of calibration and QC testing with it before they can start using it for actual keysets. I'm super excited for this GB and can't wait for it to start!

Just wondering how much efficient "the new machine" is, and how it can help with current timings. Can 8 months be reduced to 5-6? or even crazier 3-4? - that would be amazing).

BTW: GLWGB :) pricing looks good as well!

For those not in the discord server, I've got renders done for the second deskmat design.
Both deskmats will be $17.

Enjoy!
