Hahaha sorry man, I only remembered about the note when I'd finished taping it up hahaha
It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

Ok so. My new pricing works like this, $15/hour + $10 shipping.

Just as an example of how long a normal board modification would take
10m to open
45m to desolder keys + LEDs
45m to spring swap and lube
20m to resolder
5m to close and test

so just over 2 hours = $30

The reason I'm switching to this method is because a lot of services I assume take a certain amount of time, and when they go over. like. way way way. over. I'm losing a lot of valuable time for the same price as something that only takes 1/2 or 1/3 the time.

This new pricing goes into effect now!

I'm taking a break from this for a while. No more new PMs, if you've PM'd me already, I'll honor whatever work you want done. Everyone else is on your own.

Can you do a Duck viper assembly with switch tuning (lubed, stickered, spring swap, sip sockets)? How long do you think that would take? I would gather all those parts and ship them to you, unless you have some parts in house.

Yeah I can do that, turnaround would probably be a day or two once I get all the parts.

Sorry guys, I was busing moving and holidays these past few days, this should be going full-force ahead now that I've found my soldering iron again.

I was wondering if I would have to provide you with switches/springs/stickers/lube if I wanted to swap my cherry MX Browns out for cherry MX blacks with 62g springs and lubed/stickered? Thank you for your time! ^_^

Hey Kmiller, I tried to PM you about getting my ergodox board repaired, but I got an error saying you can't receive pm's.  Are you open for business?

Are you taking on any new work? The_Chemist is out of action temporarily, and am inquiring as to yoru availability.

This would be for full assembly of a 75%.
