I wonder if we are having more polycarb kits in stock? Thank you.

Hello! I have two questions as this would be my first high end custom. If I were to use Bsun housings, would I be able to use the hotswappable feet (built in holtites, I guess?) with the PCB or would I need to remove them and solder? And could I use either screw in or plate mounted stabs?

This is such a wonderful looking board and I can't wait to see it in person. Hoping this is my 75% endgame!

BSun switches always need to be soldered in. They just have little Holtites that get soldered in so you can pull the switches out after soldering.

Hello, if you are using screw in stabs please put a washer before screwing in.

Also, pcb mounted stabs only.

Does anyone have any suggestions on mitigating the scratches on the polished nameplate on the inside of the case?
Came pretty beat up with a dozen or so small scratches and several more relatively larger scratches. Elaine has mentioned someone suggested polishing oil of sorts but am unsure if thereís been any success with this or another method. Any recommendations are welcome. Thanks!

Hey, as I said in my email, the minute scratches are inevitable due to the kind of surface it is. The way it is polished, it will have hairline scratches regardless, I am not sure with polishing it with a varnish because it is chemically polished it will probably remove or change the look of it.

Maybe someone else who has tried can chime in

I just saw a Navy Singa for the first time last night and I fell in love.  I had no idea the color and the anodization were so nice.  Are there going to be any more available??  It's the first board I've seen in a while that I really want. :O

Yeah thanks for the tips!  Just curious to see if anyone here had any luck with getting the scratches out or what not.

Hey all,

I received a polycarb singa a little while ago but I'm only getting around to building it now. I'm not too sure I know how to go about soldering on the rgb underglow pieces. I thought I remember seeing a guide on the singa website but I can't seem to find it anymore. Can anyone walk me through it so I don't screw it up? Or if there's a guide I can reference?

Thanks :)

doesn't the PCB come with underglow already? if not they are the small surface mount LEDs you've gotta just solder them in, they are pretty small.

Ah, yea I understand what all the parts are. I'm just new to soldering smd parts. Like I assume they're similar to in-switch leds in the sense that they need to be oriented a specific way, but I'm not sure which way.

One of the corners on the SMD LED is notched. Each LED spot on the PCB has a square solder mask also with a marked corner. These corners should match when orienting the LED.

With the USB facing away from you, start at the pad to the right of the USB port.  That is the first led to get power and they all run in parallel.  So solder on the attiny chip first (the printing on the pcb will show the orientation) then start with that first led.  Once on, plug in the board, go into bootmapper to the far right tab at the top, and then click Connect and toggle on your leds.  Make sure your total led count is set to 18.  Just make them all white for now and then click disconnect, the attiny will retain the settings.  If soldered correctly it should light up. Unplug the board, solder your next led to the right, plug in the board and test. Keep going clockwise around the board till all leds are installed and working. 

I recommend taking a tiny bit of solder and tin one of the 4 led pads.  Then, get your tweezers, hold the led in place, heat up the tinned pad so it grabs the led and it should hold the led in place.  Now solder the other 3 pads and then add a touch more to the first pad.  It's pretty easy once you get a feel for it.
 each led should take about a minute to get in place and test.
