The brass really looks nice - next round Bent Brass clear coated ;)

UPDATE - QUALITY CONTROL

Over the last two weeks I spent my available time to go through the case parts and upgrading the warehouse with shelves. I was mentally prepared to find parts that are out of tolerance or faulty in some way and that their would be a certain amount of parts that would have to be remade. The more parts I got off the pallets and into the shelves the happier I got because I realized they are all good. Looks like I don't have to complain about anything which is a huge relief. Of course there are some damaged parts but the amount is so tiny that it isn't relevant at all. I was not expecting that.

Here are some pictures:

UPDATE - PCBS ARRIVED

20 boxes from china have arrived. The PCBs look very nice. I tested a few with a keytester - all work as expected. Nothing special to report here.

Production PCB pictures:

NEXT

Next up is powder coating. I hope I will be able to transport the first batch of case parts to the company that does the powder coating next week. First all of one color, after that the next color batch. In two weeks from now I should be able to tell when I will have the last batch back from powder coating. So next update is expected March 4.

Seeing those pictures, I hope everyone who loudly and angrily dismissed concerns about storage space take a second to think about their words. Obviously it's no simple thing to receive that amount (and weight) of product and then distribute it to hundreds of customers. I have nothing but respect for you for taking this project on, and seeing it through.

Amazing job!  :thumb:

I believe the problem was more like OP sat on the money for months before getting a warehouse or ordering parts.
