Yes, backup plan is in full swing. the samples still haven't arrived. Everything else is prepared to build them, take pictures and make the reddit post. Then I assume it won't take long until I get enough new orders to make up for the still missing payments.

UPDATE: SUPERMEGAFINAL SMAPLES ARRIVED

the samples (2x SKB60-WKL and 2x SKB75) arrived on friday. I spent the whole weekend modding switches and building the boards (including a ghetto mod, hint: bottom row of the 75% boards). Today I went out and found a nice spot where I took pictures.

Sorry that the boards (especially to one with the tai hao caps) are quite dirty on the pictures. I hadn't noticed that before I went outside and at the spot I didn't had anything with me for cleaning.

Attached to this post is a little teaser before I'll create an imgur album with a lot more pictures:

Will have the reddit post ready in the coming days. Regarding this I came up with another way of throwing some more extra SKBs at you:
The two who will be the most helpful (answering questions for example) in the reddit thread will receive one extra SKB of their choice :)

UPDATE: BOARDWALK SUPPORT (SKB60-BW)

some time ago I was asked by one of you if I would consider offering a plate for a PCB that was then called the "Ergo60". Back then I declined because the project was already complex enough. Now that I have to make up for missing payments and after two more asked me about a plate for that PCB, I contacted shensmobile and I got his blessing to offer a SKB60-Boardwalk version as well.

How will this go down?
I won't support all the possible layout for the Boardwalk PCB since the plate wouldn't look nice. I'll offer not one but two different Boardwalk plates (the only way to avoid huge holes in the bottom row). If you already are a part of the SKB-GB and you want to switch to a SKB60-BW version or add one, please PM me. If you read this, want SKB60-BW but are not jet a participant in this GB, then please have a bit more patience. Once I post on reddit, I'll have new pictures ready and by then the google order form will have the SKB-BW versions included as well.

Here you can see how a Boardwalk version will look like:

Here you can find more pictures including the plates:

If one or both of the plates get a minimum of ten orders, then they will happen.

Lovely photos and lovely samples... I will try to help wherever I can when the thread is up.

Excited to hear of more progress as we move along.

hope I can get your help there.

Not sure if the GB is still actually open, but I finally caved and submitted an order (via the form linked in the reddit post).

The main reason is of course that the final product looks like it will be something really special. But what tipped the scales for me was all the hard work and care PlastikSchnittstelle has poured into this project. That has to be rewarded!

Now, I ordered the 65% version -- is there a list of suitable 65% pcb's anywhere?

I just paid my invoice, but noticed too late that it said SKB75, not SKB65. Not sure if I made a mistake when filling in the form or what happened (it's a bit hard to figure out since you don't get receipts for Google forms).

Anyways, I've sent an email regarding the issue. I assume this is the correct address?
