May be a weird question, but I forgot to ask before I ordered: are the PCB-mount pin holes Cherry spec? I'm not sure if anyone's been adjusting them to fit the thicker Gateron/Zealio pins, but I'm planning on using Cherry PCB-mount and want a tight fit.

Also, do you know how thick the PCB will be?

I've tested the holes with Zealios and they're snug but the switches can be removed fine. Cherry PCB mount is a slight bit looser, but still snug.

Just FYI, the upcoming v2 switches from Zeal are supposed to have the slightly smaller Cherry-sized PCB mount pins.

Yeee. I don't predict any issues

I expect there would be enough interest for a round 2 *fingers crossed*

a little late for the GB, but did the extras for pre-order already go up (and sold out?)

No, they haven't been ordered (or put up for sale) yet. I'm waiting on the blank ones to arrive so I can build and verify they're good to go before the large order.

The final prototype (ver 1.4) works perfectly with the original .hex files. There's a slight outline issue that I've fixed, and I'm ordering the group buy version (1.5) tomorrow.

Pre-orders will be available this week (Tues/Weds) for $50 per, I'll likely have 25ish available fcfs on my site.

I think I may have to delay the pre-ordering until at least tomorrow (Thurs 10/25) because I'm waiting on some more info from my manufacturer for the money transfer.

Seems that way. If the production starts at the end of this week I'm looking at ~4 weeks until they're shipped to me, then flashing/packing/shipping on my end. Likely closer to mid December (before Christmas) as I'll be out of town at the beginning of the month.

The EU proxy doesn't appear to allow preorders (the GB page shows out of stock).

Hiney could you allocate some stock over there? I forgot about this GB and missed out during the buy period so would be nice to grab one of the preorders before I forget. Thanks!

They have 20 PCBs heading their way, 18 are claimed iirc. They may have two left. I can probably get yours on their shipment, just PM me on Discord (@hineybush#0069) and we can set that up.

I'm a little confused why my shipping cost was $8.55 to the US (Oregon) given in the OP it should be a lot less (even including Paypal's fee)...?

The $1.30 is just the PayPal fee (which is actually the GB/$45 amount, the pre-order/$50 amount is a little higher), which is added to the normal shipping fee for the final cost of $8.55

Not exactly sure, but I expect to have them in 2-3 weeks.

I'll be out of town on a business trip from the end of November until Dec 6, I'm hoping they arrive during my trip so I can get to flashing/packing/shipping as soon as I return.

I still won't be able to work on flashing/packing/shipping until ~Dec 7 because of my upcoming trips, but that's still pretty nice

Only issues I've seen so far are a few of the 22ohm USB resistors touching, because I had the factory use them to replace the STF202 ESD chip I originally wanted to use. An easy fix for me. The chip caused a lot of issues with getting the PCB into bootloader mode, I think because it may be designed for USB 1.1 only? Not 100% sure. Regardless the PCBs work flawlessly without the chip, as long as the resistors aren't touching ;)

Sorry I don’t fully understand the issue.  Are a few resistors touching on all the boards, but it’s not a big deal? Or, on a few boards, there are resistors touching, causing those boards to fail QC?

It's only on a few boards. I can fix these ones to work normally.
