I don't have my VE.A anymore, so if anyone is looking for one I'm down to transfer my order (black walnut + oak) before I pay for shipping, as long as bendrexl is cool with it.

I just noticed your PM, and that's no problem. If you find someone who would be interested in a Wenge set, they are welcome to upgrade - one of the oak+walnut rests cracked, so I'm looking to remake one anyway.

That was confusing - my fault.  Either way I missed the date - why? Simple answer is that I don't want to over/undercharge on shipping, and I haven't had the time to nail down the exact amounts for each of the 12 orders on my bench at the moment.

"Wait, what do you mean you haven't had time, Ben?!? You've had dozens of days, DOZENS!"
True, and I am really feeling the pressure to deliver quality product to all you incredibly patient folks. The more involved answer is that my own personal/IRL issues affecting this project's delays are real, but they're my own responsibility and I don't want to use them as excuses. I also don't want to cut any corners at this stage, so I'll take the time required to get it right. Keep in mind that I'm not exactly getting paid hourly and I can't take on any other projects until this one is done, so I'm very motivated to get this done and out the door!  :)

What I really want to communicate is that there is *no* danger of not getting exactly what you already paid for - the only question is the exact date of delivery, which I am apparently incapable of estimating :P  I am still making steady progress, and it won't be much longer now.

(on my phone, sorry for short message)

Shipping update: I started sending out invoices for FedEx & UPS shipping, but decided to switch to USPS to save everyone some cash. Anyone in the US who has already received an invoice will get an updated invoice notice, and those who've paid will get a refund for the difference. If you don't want me to use Priority service, let me know.

Also, if anyone's concerned about PayPal's buyer protection window closing soon, feel free to get in touch with me directly - delayed though it is, I don't want anyone feeling like they're trapped or being taken advantage of. Refund/re-up is an option

Thx for the update Ben! Much appreciated =)

Are all the wrist wrests except for surface finishing done?

Since mine is supposed to stay raw/unfinished, will it be in one of the early badges if I may ask?

I too would like to know whether orders will be delivered within their paypal protection window.

For those of you receiving these in the mail - please take photos of the box if there's *any* sign of damage. These are all fully-insured, but they (understandably) want evidence of damage if there's a damage claim.

if there's any damage to the rests after opening, please keep the box and all packaging and let me know so I can make a claim and arrange repair/replacement. Thanks!

I can try!

But seriously, I'll be taking it home to Germany and will have to pay import fees if importerd items exceed 400 value total.

So it probably wouldn't make much sense anyway xD

I'm sending these out as they are ready, since I wasn't able to get any significant discount on shipping them all at once. Yours should be packed up by the 17th - let me know if I should wait.

It's so great to see these in action, and I love the board!

I'm sorry the Padauk set was damaged - it looks like USPS just approved my damage insurance claim, and they haven't asked me for anything else, so I'll follow up with you about returning & repairing it once I confirm they don't need to inspect it.

Yes pls hold the package and send it around 25th pls.

Will do - I'll plan on sending on the 25th unless you tell me otherwise, thanks!

Looks like I might be able to use these after all.

Someone in China made a VE.A clone... Acrylic sandwich, but same layout, and the assembled kit is only $76, not sure what disassembled costs.

https://world.taobao.com/item/556970472669.htm

You have to contact the seller to request an unassembled kit, or the normal page is an assembled board w/ your choice of switch.

I haven't ordered from taobao before, anything I should know as a US buyer?

taobao is kinda like eBay in China, and you have to use a proxy to do the shipment (the seller ships to a warehouse in China, then you pay the warehouse to ship it to you). Most of the websites are in Chinese not English, so you have to use a lot of Google Translate or find a buddy that can read/write simplified Chinese.

The first two options are assembled w/ red Gaterons, or brown Gaterons ("tea" is brown), last option looks irrelevant, I think they're just saying no keycaps. So I don't think you can pick the color, just black. Could always ask though.

I might just order 4-5 unassembled kits to help out whoever wants one, only $60 + shipping.

There are a few English Taobao proxies who are happy to take your money and even (partially) translate the site for you.  I've used Taobao Focus before without any problems.  Expect the usual 30 days shipping from China.

Take the item number from the Taobao URL (556970472669 in this case) and plug it into your English proxy's web site.

"Tea" is brown, by the way.   ;)
