So either Hoff, Mashby or Spamray has your order as they are the US people in charge of shipment.

Technically you last posted 6 months ago but that's ok. :P

Mashby is your proxy and he is currently MIA however given his past trustworthiness and being an all around great guy I'm sure it is only a matter of time before he can come up for air and check in. Last update we have from mashby is he was covered up with real life issues much more important than keyboards.


Honestly for anyone moving for any proxy it shouldn't be an issue as we will send a paypal invoice for shipping charges you have to pay before we ship anything thus you have all the power in regards to what address we ship to as we will ship to your paypal confirmed address.

Have we come up with how we're going to handle the diy kits with smd components, I know the plan was to ship these separate from the other kits because there were a lot of parts. Any updates on that?

I believe the below quote is the latest information on the DIY kits

Really happy that something is finally coming my way, but just curious if a decision was made about DIY orders?

I have been waiting to see if the DIY kits are needed after all this time.  And also (well, primarily) procrastinating on dealing with that little box of evil.

However, I have now received two separate requests for info on the DIY kits.  I'll go open the box and see what it will really take to deal with.

And as always, anyone who wants to take this delightful little task off my hands is welcome to it!

Ok, I went and looked at this.  Lots of taped parts, so maybe I can use a ruler to cut measured lengths of (e.g.) teeny tiny diodes.  I'll try to make up a couple of kits just to see.   Shipping will be annoying because a blank PCB has to go with each kit.  Perhaps they could be shipped in Priority Mail envelopes?

If there is a person or two in the US who would actually build a DIY kit, let me know and I'll drop one in the mail.  (You have to already be on the list as a buyer, of course.)

Also, the little GH60 stickers ARE in there as well.  Those will be simplest to just drop in the mail in a regular envelope.

I would love to build a GH60 from a DIY kit. What do you need from me to make this happen?

Will there be extras or another chance to get in on the group buy?

This group buy is 4 years old. I don't think there will be another round but if you want a board check http://techkeys.us/collections/accessories/products/gh60

I feel like the pcb mount 6.25 stabilizer doesn't work with the plate. The metal part of the stabilizer hits the bottom of the plate causing the mx mounts of the stabs to raise.

It's like there isn't enough clearance.

have you tried turning the wire over, like flipping it so the kink in the wire heads towards the pcb rather than the plate

It's been so long I can't recall how many DIY kits I had ordered, but I believe there were more then a few. I'd be in interested in getting them if possible. In fact, given the quantity you could probably drop all the little parts in a Ziploc bag and ship me those and the boards in a small flat rate box. I originally wanted to take on another soldering challenge, but that was a few years ago, I'm still up to it again though...

You ordered qty = 8 DIY kits according to the master spreadsheet.  Please PM or e-mail me your shipping address and we'll see what we can do.

Thanks!

Costar stabilizer had to be turned around as well. Wire still hits that switch but it works without a problem.

What if I use my backup plate mount cherry stabs? Do you think that could work as well?

I have multiple 2u, 6.25u, and 7u cherry stabs.
