I just noticed one of the holes on the switch plate is enlarged (position near the spacebar stabiliser), is there anything special about this switch position?

Erm... I just noticed that too.  I may have goofed on the design somehow... This is what prototypes are for!

EDIT: Files are fine, I'll talk to the manufacturer.  I was a little bit drunk when I looked it over last night so I somehow missed that.

I'm going to get one of the weights polished to compare.  I'm moving 650km on Sept 2nd, so I'm going to be holding off on shipping it until I have a shipping address in dorms.
That weight... Holy ****.

27, do you have a rough timeframe for when you will run the GB and how long the buy period goes for? I would appreciate it if you could push it to a bit later, October perhaps... Helps with my budget  :thumb:

I can't decide. Should I join Mech27 gb or wait for Mira. If Mech27, black or silver case would be a safe choice to match with keycaps, but this gold case is just gorgeous. What keycaps set would fit it well?

Alright I'm talking with the manufacturer, seems like it was a toolpath issue that caused the hole.  I'm going to receive those plates as-is since I'd prefer to have them sooner rather than later, and they'll fix the issue for the full run :)

(Yes I'm being reimbursed for the mess-up)

For the actual sale? I missed the deposits too. Was going to get number 10 for Guy LaFleur; can't get much more Canadian than that.

Every package will be sent with tracking if possible. I've never had any problems with them, and it seems like the strike crisis has been avoided :)

Yes.

No.



I'll be trying to get orders opened sometime next week after I receive the prototypes, but may postpone it so I can wrap up my Fosen switch groupbuy.

What are everyone's thoughts on having delivery in December?  The lack of storage and transportation here in Ottawa may be a huge limitation, but if I send everything to my parents I could have it all shipped out in mid December when I return after the semester.  This is just an idea, and I definitely want to know what you think.  If I did this I'd be able to complete the groupbuy much more reliably, but obviously there would be a longer wait time.

I kinda assumed it'd be around December anyway. The only bad thing about December is it's near Christmas, so there will be a loooot of mail. (Not sure if that's really an issue)

Delay on the opening of the GB stage is good for me  :thumb:

December is fine too, I am quite busy with work so even if it gets here early I wouldn't have the time to build it.

Agreed. many lost package because long holiday (chris - new year)
for international orders its better to sent it early december or early january
avoid mid to late december. I remember buy caps from pmk on mid december it takes 2-3 month to arrive
And i buy caps from pmk again on early january it only takes 10 days

Can comfirm that. Even within Europe shipping is fd up over christmas. Domestic shipping is usually no problem (maybe a day late) but when I order something from the UK it takes at least twice the time  when it gets shipped mid-late december compared to early december or january.
