Potter has updated the status of the GB in discord

Edit: nvm, it’s been updated in the first post as well.

Update (from discord):

Potter has signed a production contract with the CNC company. If you haven't paid the invoice, please kindly either cancel the invoice from your end or let him know when you plan to pay.

Send AirPotter a pm (or through discord). He is at hometown for CNY now. But don't worry this can always be changed when he sends invoice for shipping

Update from Potter:(sync from discord)
I'm really sorry. I just fixed my VPN so that I can see this message now.😂
Report progress.
SPACE65 can complete 120 sets of CNC processing this weekend, then go to the radium logo, and then go to the anodization.
After the cartons are processed, the weight can be counted and the express delivery fee can be charged. Then they are distributed in batches.😁

There might be extras. Potter made extras to make sure if there are issues he can replace them. If QC all good and all goes well, he will sell those extras he made.

Airpotter said that it would ship in about 3 months so it seems to be going right on track with that estimate. I'd expect that list + sorting/packaging to take about a month to complete.

Gutted I missed this, is it ever going to run again?

Edit, just read through above and saw there may be extras. That'd be fantastic. Should I just watch here for that? Put my name down in advance or something? This thing is so gorgeous!

Please join the gray discord. Occasionally buyers sell their spots but go very quickly. The extras will be used for potential customer service issues, and if no issues they will be available after the GB completes.

Man, progress is screaming along! I'm so excited!

Odd choice to have the plates machined though... laser/waterjet cut would be quite a lot quicker and is almost always cheaper. Not complaining, just think it is an odd choice (as someone who deals with metal manufacturing on a daily basis)

Thanks! Lasercut indeed is faster and cheap but also less accurate than CNC though :)

I get lasercut parts ordered all the time that are within +-0.001" tolerance for thinner metal. Guess it just depends on the vendor. Like I said, for the customer's standpoint it doesn't matter  ;D

Brass parts are still being CNC'd (then polishing and PVD). All aluminum pieces are being sorted for anodization.
