Thankfully my plate screws work well enough but the brass weight screws are almost entirely useless, any tips as to what I can do ?
also either it came that way or (more likely) in my rush to get this thing up and running i might have knocked off a piece of the pcb that now makes the insert key (top right most key) not function. how involved would it be for me to fix this?

It's just a diode so it's an easy fix.  The part is a couple of cents at most.
You could replace it with another surface mount diode or get creative with a through hole one.

I epoxied my weight in. It's not going anywhere plus no more concerns of shorting the pcb out on the weight screws.

I had to do more work to this board aside from having to epoxy in the weight. I had to put new helicoils in the indicator light trim piece, plus i had to rethread every single plate screw with 2.5m hex bolts. Now my JER Mini is as solid as a rock. The tolerances on the machine work are fantastic and the finish is nice aside from one minor scratch but the quality of the threads and the use of helicoils is unacceptable. It could always be worse though. I gotta say, while the issues with this board are unacceptable, I was able to work around them and that work has made me like the board even more. I'll definitely purchase another plate and PCB if the JER Mini runs again.

I have 1 plate screw that just spins endlessly but rethreading it is something I'm not familiar with how to do. Any tips?

You may need a longer screw.  A few people have been having problems with the plate screw being too short.  Try getting some m2 6mm screws.  I'm getting some tonight to see if they fit.

Teflon tape will work if you are lucky, or a longer bolt. I opted to use a larger bolt of a much harder metal. Carbon steel bolts cut through aluminum with ease.

I tried that but I think the hole is actually too wide. Maybe I'll try an m2.5 bolt

Hey Frosty,

Do you have any extra JER Mini PCBs? I accidentally spilled water on my JER and now the TAB and ESC buttons dont work :(. If you have any extras of the bar that lies at the bottom of the keyboard, I'm also interested in that.

Thanks!

I had emailed about a year ago for a plate file and received this. I don't have a program to open it and see it, myself, hopefully this helps.
