Hello All,

I have mostly good news to share this fine Saturday... with just a little bad too, sorry.

The good:

These things came out SO nice. Iím really pleased with everything and as you can see, the polishing, fit and counter sinks are all perfect.

The bad - well, itís masking as more good for me. Not ideal for everyone waiting to strap these babies in. I cashed out the frequent flier bank and weíre off on vacation for a week. Iím sitting at LAX with a sleeping Ruby on my lap, boarding shortly for Kauai. Sorry, not sorry.

I had really hoped to ship un-engraved this week, but the polishing house was slow. They did good work, but I picked them up after work yesterday, so nothing will get out until next Monday the 15th.

Apologies for that, but life is always so busy in the fall. I did wake up extra early this am to test the fit in my LSv3 here because I just had to know everything was good before I left. It felt heavy in there and looked great. Everyone will be stoked. Remember that I did this all just because I wanted these in my boards and Iíd be really happy to receive this hunk oíbrass, so Iím excited to see them in everyoneís rigs.

There are still 6-7 invoices outstanding. If youíre one of those and happen to see this, please message me and let me know if youíre still in or not. Willing to work with you, as needed, just kindly let me know.

As a reminder, Iím going to invoice everyone for shipping and polishing as I send them off. Shipping will be $13.95 flat rate box for everyone CONUS and $5 (optional but appreciated) for the polishing fund.

Have a good week, yíall. Thanks so much for everyoneís support all along the ride. Itís been fun and the end is in sight. Aloha!

These look absolutely gorgeous and I'm glad that the fit is good. I kind of wish I could make my SaiB-CP weight (the GB runner shared the design file!) under this manu and polishing service -- I wonder what the MOQ is? Please do let me know any details on this if it's doable.

Enjoy your vacation  :cool: I'm not in a particular rush to get this weight! Here's my rebuilt Lightsaver v3. It's ready and waiting for its weight. :thumb:

Awesome news, it looks great.  Now I'm just wondering if I'll get the weight first or TC-V3...

At this rate, I'm thinking we'll see the weights before we see the TC-V3s... Either way, I'm stoked for both.

Have the shipping invoices even gone out Mikiberry? I have an unengraved and haven't received a shipping invoice yet.

Mine was engraved. Not sure what happened to the original timeline either. Was hoping for an update since the project kinda started on June.

Hi All-

As updated two weeks ago on my way out of town, I have all brass polished and in hand. Plan was to ship unengraved this week... but Iíve been without a car- mine was totaled. Neither here nor there, as we all know, life happens and Iím 100% committed to getting this project done asafp. Sadly, this week Iíve been mooching rides/ getting dropped off by wifey at work, thusly, carrying a bunch of brass around was problematic.

I will be dropping off all the NA unengraved orders and as many international as possible on Tuesday. Iíll ship first and send the invoices after to save everyone a day or two.

Graphics for engraved weights are ready, just need to get the engravers our brass. This will be much easier with a car. Planning to take them brass Tuesday and will ship as soon as they give it back with awesome graphics.

Iíve tried hard to bring everyone on the journey of a working dad of three who loves keyboards way too much running a little GB. Clearly by the anxiety level, Iíve missed that mark a bit lately and apologize. I warned of my pathological optimism and Iíve tried to temper that, but yes, we are past projected ship dates. I think weíll end up at a little more than one month past... believe my original (or second original?) timeline was to ship engraved by early October. Itís safe to say that will now be around early Nov. May get them out by Halloween if the engravers are fast, weíll see.

As luck has it, I will be at the Mechanicon 2018 meetup in Frankfurt next month. If any euro folks waiting on a weight will be there, please let me know and Iíll mule it over.

Also, as someone definitely hoping to snag a spot in Orion V3, Iím happy to run a weight GB again. Now that the process is worked out and only running one size, i think we can put that together and have weights done before the boards.

Thanks for hanging in there with me. Have a good one, everyone. Iíll post when the first wave has been dropped off and is headed your way.  :thumb:  :thumb:

No worries dude! I may be one of the few, but I know I got an engraved and an unengraved - can you hold my unengraved until the engraved are done so I am not paying shipping twice please!

Anyone interested in taking over my spot for Jetfire weight? I don't think I can wait that long anymore as I will be travelling for the next 1-2 months from early Nov'18.

Hi All,

First 10 boxes are in transit! I'll be messaging those folks with tracking information and invoicing for shipping. I'm going to add the PayPal fee (for US, 2.9% + $0.30 fee) this time since I'm charging you the exact amount I paid for shipping. Also, please remember, I decided to polish all the weights because I wanted them to look awesome. I'm asking for $5 extra to cover polishing- OPTIONAL only. I made the mistake in not accounting for the countersinks and I'll eat that. However, if you want to help offset that for me, it's much appreciated and I sincerely thank those who have already sent a few extra coins. :thumb: If you do choose to add that $5, I think you can just enter in the invoice amount + $5 as you pay... early invoice folks, please let me know if that's not the case.

As I've been packing the weights, I noticed that there is a bit of polish residue left on the back (unpolished side) of some weights. More than I'd like anyway- it's ok aesthetically, you won't see that face when it's mounted in your board, the polished faces are all lovely but I still don't like the look of it. I'm reaching out to the metal finishing company I used today to see if they have any suggestions for removal so I can try getting rid of that and/or share information with you all so you can get rid of it if you'd like on yours.

Going to keep dropping off packages/ sending shipping invoices and tracking every day until they are all out. Will have all of the un-engraved US orders out in the next couple of days, then on to international and then engraved. Really hoping to get the engraved weights back early/ middle next week so I can get them moving.

Thanks to all for the patience and support- these babies will be in your boards soon!

Thanks- good to know. I tried the next couple of invoices with the option to "add a tip" on... maybe that will work to add the polishing if desired. If anyone wants to just send it friends and family instead, that's just fine- I didn't go that route so everything could be invoiced and disputable should there be any issues, but at this point, pretty sure you know I'm not absconding with a carload of brass. :)

Another round out today, shipping invoices to follow shortly. Thanks to everyone for paying these quickly so far, much appreciated.

I spoke with the metal finishers, a little thinner takes off any excess polish on the back/ sides of the weight. Again, apologize if you see a bit of this, I'll make sure they get rid of that for us on the Orion weights.

I'm getting my routine dialed in and will be packing up the rest of the un-engraved over the weekend. Hope to have an ETA on picking up the engraved weights early next week. I'll keep everyone posted.

Have a great weekend! :)

Thanks for the email- replied.

To all- no sweat to change addresses, but please do let me know asap if you would like it shipped somewhere other than where PayPal is going to tell me to send. I'm doing this in a slightly odd manner to save a little time- I'm going to the post office, dropping packages and then invoicing you for shipping after it's already sent. This means by the time you see the shipping invoice, it's already in motion. Please email me (smlsmith9@gmail.com) if you need an address change- easier to track there than the various PM platforms.

Another batch heading out today, including some international folks. Chewing through all of the un-engraved weights... more slowly than I hoped, but I don't want anyone getting a bent or dinged weight. :)

Have a good week!

Does anyone know how much is international shipping? I have a US proxy address too so if it's too expensive I might opt for the latter.

AFAIK even Steve does not have the exact quote for int'l shipping as he ships them first then sends invoice accordingly.
However, by roughly guessing looking at the CONUS shipping fee, I think using proxy would be cheaper in most cases.

FYI, I have decided using proxy too, for cheaper & faster shipping.

Does anyone know how much is international shipping? I have a US proxy address too so if it's too expensive I might opt for the latter.

AFAIK even Steve does not have the exact quote for int'l shipping as he ships them first then sends invoice accordingly.
However, by roughly guessing looking at the CONUS shipping fee, I think using proxy would be cheaper in most cases.

FYI, I have decided using proxy too, for cheaper & faster shipping.

Does anyone know how much is international shipping? I have a US proxy address too so if it's too expensive I might opt for the latter.

Ok, all the shipping questions together...

International shipping is a bugger for everyone! I had my first five international boxes ready to go, customs forms filled and went to send off. I used a USPS Priority box and for that to go international, it would have been $39!! If it was in a non-priority box, it would have been more like $17 (this was to Canada). SO, I'm trying to pick up some generic boxes for the international orders. If you have a US proxy, that's extremely helpful- please let me know (if you haven't already) if that may be an option. Otherwise, I'll find some good boxes to minimize your cost and chew through the international shipping as fast as I can. Thanks for your patience!

US shipping is going well. I have a big batch being dropped off tomorrow. Getting close to done with non-engraved orders.

Engraved weights. None have shipped yet- I have yet to get the engraved weights back. Seems that we were behind another big job for this shop and they will have them done Monday or Tuesday. Sadly, I have another week-long business trip next week, so engraved orders will begin shipping on the 12th.

Thanks again to everyone. Really enjoying seeing the early pics of weights mounted in boards and hearing feedback as you're receiving them.

$17 for Canada shipping isn't too bad. I can't wait to get my shipping invoice, so jealous of everyone else getting theirs already haha.

Woot! Glad you like!!

Got my weight on last Friday. They fit pretty good. Thank you Steve for the GB :)


Looks awesome- thanks for the pic and enjoy!

Looks good Steve. You really did a good job!

Sorry if this is obvious, but I donĎt really understand: If you ship to a US proxy, the shipping to them would be cheaper ofc, but if the proxy ships it then outside of US, it would cost the same then, right?

My proxy charges S$ 3.99 per 500g (actual weight and not volumetric), I'm fairly certain it's cheaper than UPS or USPS etc.

(Attachment Link)

YES! Looks awesome. I think when I add this to my Jetfire, it may challenge the Blackbird for favorite Duck status!

Any updates on the engraved weights?

They are all done Tuesday, but I'm out on business travel until the weekend. I'll pick them up Monday and get them boxed and shipped asap!

Shoot me a message here or Discord (same name). I think I'll have an extra at the end I can get you- had about 10 weights or so go unpaid. I've found many homes, but I'm pretty sure I'll have one for you.  :thumb:

Hello All,

Back from Germany... several schnitzel-related pounds heavier. More weights have been shipping this week- keep an eye for the shipping invoices. Should have a big bunch dropped off tomorrow... including... the first of the engraved weights!!

Picked everything up yesterday evening- they came out really nice!! :)

Pics (and sorry, turns out it's really hard to get a good photo of polished brass with an engraving in my messy workshop that doesn't include my face or phone in the reflection!):









Thanks to everyone for their patience. Should be able to pack the rest of the orders up over the weekend and get them headed your way. This means last call for address changes, please let me know asap if you'd like it shipped to anything other than your PayPal address if we haven't already talked and confirmed an addy change. And many thanks to those adding the $5 for polishing on the shipping invoices- that helps minimize my red ink on the project a lot, really appreciate that!

Have a good one!

Sorry to hear that. No, they generated engraving files from the artwork Gaiden put together (the files in OP). There are a couple of wobbles in there and I did ask how we can provide better artwork for future runs. I may also shop around for other engraving shop options next time to make sure we get the highest quality art on the brass.

Any chance you have an unengraved TC-V3 I can swap for?
