Re: SKB75 / SKB65 / SKB60 (All parts arrived!)

Emails for address and order confirmation went out. Not all though, I can't send all of them at once. The rest goes out tomorrow and the day after.

Re: [IC] HADapter Round II (Pok3rFox, Diamonds, Splitkit) <= PRICES

YES!
suggestion:
since it isn't just an addon kit but ment to adapt old cherry keycap sets, let's make the bottom row caps F-profile ONLY. onr at least as option. I'd love that!

UPDATE: packing time!

The last thing missing were the standoffs. They arrived today. Tomorrow I can start packing the accessory bags. Over here you can find some recent, smaller updates.

UPDATE, address change: quite a few have contacted me because they moved and have a new address. I don't respond to all of these messages, but of course I'm aware.

Re: SKB75 / SKB65 / SKB60 (in production)

Regarding additional orders: Some ask if they can still get an SKB case. Like I had mentioned a few times already, "extras" don't mean there is any kind of additional production. I have simply ordered more cases that are currently ordered (a few of each version, more of the popular versions, less o...

UPDATE, continuing as planned: OK, I wanted to wait for a good amount of feedback on this. I conclude that I proceed as planned - sorting, packing, shipping! TBO, anything else would be nuts. I'm at a point where I can hardly justify to put more time and effort into this. Getting into a dispute abo...

Re: SKB75 / SKB65 / SKB60 (in production)

exactly, it is like traces that let you get a hint of a direction. only visible in bright daylight and under a certain angle. this was also a top part where it was more visible than on the others. on others is was more happening on the sides flanges, not the top face side, if at all.

Re: SKB75 / SKB65 / SKB60 (in production)

UPDATE / Quality Control: Over the last days I've been digging through the boxes whenever I had time to. I'm happy with the edges, flanges, overall precision and the anodizing. However I'm not entirely happy with the bead blasting. There are spots, where the bead blasting does not seem to be applie...

Re: SKB75 / SKB65 / SKB60 (in production)

since I can't do anything but wait at this stage, I wanted to get some distance from the skb project and did't check the forums for the last two weeks - really needed a little rest from this.

but I have a new ETA now:

Damn. Is there an expected, or even provisional, date for the procurement of the new materials?
all I can say now is that they told me they definately will have the material again this month. that basically means they can start making the bottom parts again in about one week from now.

UPDATE: let me keep it short: another delay why: they messed up most of the bottom parts. consequence: order more of that sheet metal alloy. they only do that together when they order their standard stuff as well, so more wait. when they have redone the bottom parts, then all parts can go to bead bl...

hehe, I just had a fun idea.
before he was refunded, omikron was in for a SKB75.
before I ship everything, I'll make another raffle with this SKB75.
so thanks to him one more SKB75 will be given away :D

Hey, on the plus side, if the cases are made AFTER the basins have been cleaned, there should be LESS to worry about regarding anodizing defects, right? Well I should say "YES, TRUE" in order to get something positive out of it, but the truth is probaly that this won't make any difference. Defects ...
