As far as I know these are not made yet, so I would expect a couple month.

Oh cool! I read so many people saying they were either going to proxy it through Tao Bao or that said they already had done just that, that I figured the PCB was already made.

I got no problem waiting a few months, will be healthier for my wallet and give me more time for the Gaterons to come in :). Thanks Ivan!

Just placed my order, yay!... but I've never done this before. Is there like an official Getting Started thread for keyboard building? I poked around Making Stuff Together and have gathered that I need PCB Mount switches, do not need diodes, and will need my own stabs. That all correct?

First time too, would love a getting started guide!

The guides on the site are great.  I did a build log of my octagon group buy that you can find by clicking the website "globe" icon in my avatar.  I go through all the steps you would need to go through as well as the parts I used to build your keyboard including stickered and lubed keys, leds, ect.  That can help anyone new to building.

Any idea if you'll be making the essentials available when this kit comes in Ivan?

I will for sure have MX blacks available for anyone that needs enough for these. I am not 100% about stabilizer yet.

Yes everything but switch and in switch LED is already done on these.

Production is over, so these should be heading my way pretty soon.

Still waiting on my shipment of clear switch covers to come in so I can sticker+ lube them all.

Sorry... I only sent out the first wave of these today. I got called away and wasn't able to get them out, then the holiday weekend. I will get them finised send tomorrow, except for one unlucky special edition order, and one unlucky dark grey bezel order... as they have severe damage to one of each of those so I won't be able to fulfill you until I can get some replacement pieces. Sorry.

For those of you who ordered the special edition, I didn't get any bolt to affix the weight and didn't see a reason to delay shipping them due to this. You can source your own size M5*8 countersink type bolt, or I can source some to send at some later time.

What does M5*8 mean, you mean M5x8? Can you confirm the exact size/length please? Thanks

Yes, those would be perfect. Maybe brass color would blend better, but whatever you like.
