Holy cow, a kilogram of pure metal case. That's amazing.

Also holy cow - $22 to ship the Banana Split to Australia :/

I'm not sure I can justify $140 AUD for just a PCB and plate...

$40 once you add a case hehe. I've already placed my order but if you're in Sydney we could perhaps combine? PM me if you're interested.

Perth here, so it probably wouldn't help, lol. Thanks for the offer though.

What is the weight of blood wood retro60? I'm really interested aesthetic-wise, but I'm afraid it could move on my desk, which I would hate.

I started looking through some case compatibility in regards to the BananaSplit USB C. Looks like your standard low profile gh60 cases work, hammer clone cases work, and the standard plastic cases work as well. All of these you can find on aliexpress. Playing around with more custom cases the Tina hole cutout was a little small. A little filing opened it up and now it works with R2 revision pcb.

No, it's the same. I've had a pok3r board and banana split board in the same case - though I've never actually put anything else into the pok3r case. The good news is the pok3r plate is wider than the banana split plate by 1-2mm so there'll be plenty of room.

Am I wrong or you bought the KBDfans 5 deg. case? Did you get it? What about compatibility with BS R2? I red there are no issues with R1 PCBs apart a little misallignament with the side mounting points, but I'm waiting for a R2 one, so...
Thanks in advance man (and sorry for my bad english...)

To add on round 2 side holes have been fixed :). There shouldn't be any alignment issues.

I'm a little boring, I know..... Did you receive your case? (Nice, isn't it?) Any issues with usb C connector? There's some debate on this in KBDfans case GB thread.
Thanks in advance

I still have not recieved it it's in Compton and I live in SD, with the current fires looks like it'll probably take a little longer. I can see it in not being fully compatible with the R1 revision but it should be fully compatible with r2.

C'mon, it's only about 2 hours by car...... I saw some satellite pics of that fire: it's really scaring anyway.....speaking about usb C connector, I measured the hole in the case and it's 12 mm. large, so, if the hole is properly aligned, there should be no problems (if I'm not wrong the C type connector is 8.5 mm.....)

This almost makes the waiting worse!

Although since I have everything else ready and waiting I should probably figure out how to setup the firmware for it once it gets here. This will be my first actual build. Very excited!
