Anywhere I can subscribe for possible r2 or left over stock about this PCB? I don't always check this forum and really am interested in picking up a PCB sometime.

Not sure what post GB plans are but there will be extras and probably other stuff.

I've put up a form for if you want to be emailed when there is news: https://forms.gle/AuwkYoE6p6PvZoRX9

Now I feel like I should have gotten the white pcb. Was planning on having an all black setup, but the contrast of the pcb with the case and keycaps in the render looks great.

Thank you very much! I was following the github recently for this and had plans to order a PCB. Just dont always check this forum as often as I should

A busy week this week with good news and bad news.

Let's start with the bad.

The PCBs arrived on Tuesday and I soon realised that I'd somehow ordered some boards with the non-USB-C design. You order PCBs in batches of a certain number, so to get the numbers we need in each colour, I needed to order multiple batches. To save from uploading the gerbers over and over for each batch, you can select the pre-uploaded file from a menu. It seems that this pre-uploaded one was actually from a previous upload before I'd added the USB-C. Totally my fault, I should have triple checked the IDs on the gerber upload.

A second order with JLCPCB has been placed to correct the error and since we're ahead anyway, shouldn't affect delivery time.

Now the good news.

I built up one of the USB-C PCBs and tested it, everything worked first time, so very happy about that. It's really nice to plug everything in and see VIA popup recognising the Lumberjack.



I've updated the build guide with images from the test build https://github.com/peej/lumberjack-keyboard/blob/master/guide.md

The FR4 plates are good, I've done a test fit and they add a nice amount of sturdiness to the PCB.



Acrylic covers have been ordered and are due to arrive in a few weeks.

Most components have arrived:
  • I am short some micro-switches so I've ordered more.
  • The big capacitors are on backorder, so I'm waiting on them until I can start bagging up.
  • I also waiting on screws and standoffs from China.

There will be plenty of non-USB-C kits available as extras, I'll probably be stuck selling these for many months to come or I'll have to make a space in the back of the closet for them.



I've created Google form for people who want to be informed when extras become available https://forms.gle/AuwkYoE6p6PvZoRX9

Thanks again for your support, have a nice week.

These updates are awesome. Love the new build guide too! I am just starting out with soldering and working with electrical components. Looking forward to putting this together!
I don't know zip and I'll die a fool.

Thanks again for keeping us so well informed. Very sorry about the mix up, hope you can sell these extras quick enough. I, for one, am fine with just USB mini and will look out for the extras.
