I've never had problems reworking 1oz boards (several cycles) if they are quality fab boards. 2oz is probably better though I don't know if 2oz is bonded to the substrate any better than 1oz is. I gue

no room for it ... if you want a better CCS you might do a T2-Style on a separat board

Order placed with PCBnet. Will keep you posted with updates.

Just returned home  a few hours ago from an unexpected, overseas trip. 

The boards have arrived. They look great and have a heavy, solid kind of feel to it. Since we ended up ordering more than 15 pairs the cost did come down a little which I will reflect in the shipping cost. 

Will sort things out in the next day or two and start sending the boards out. The rotten part is I leave again for a business trip in a few days so may not get around to ship all boards out before I leave. Apologize ahead for the delay.

Each set of boards dropped $2 US due to the larger number of boards ordered than originally planned. This amount will be deducted from the shipping cost to you.

All Europe-bound boards were sent to MLA this morning for distribution to the individual GB participants. 

All US-bound boards were sent via USPS Priority Mail this morning as well. USPS raised the postage on Jan. 22 this year, it's now $7.20.  The US GB participants please PayPal Gift me $5.20 to cover the shipping charge. For gepardcv it's $3.2.

For those that did not use PayPal Gift please add extra to cover the PayPal fees.

Thanks all for your patience.

Boards received today, they look great! Thanks mwl168!

Can anyone point me to a thread that discusses these boards? (tips, BOMs, results)

I know nothing about the KGBH BJT version. Haven't had any luck searching for it.

These boards are relatively new from Kevin. I don't think there is much discussion yet here in this forum. I plan to start a build thread and post a BOM. But will need to wait till I return home from my business trip.

Indeed :)

Coincidentally, I walked by a 450+ BHP Volvo S60 Polestar this morning when going to a meeting at work; I briefly considered "borrowing" it and just make a run for the border with gwrskien's boards.

You should have gone for it!! I`m going down to Gothenburg Volvo Plant in a couple of monts to machine on the presses that press whole sides of the cars...We did the same thing last summer, i would have tried to explain why you just had to "borrow" the car... :D

Interesting. Always was a Tuborg fan; guess the exotic stuff from other countries taste better :). Also, In Sweden, beer commercials were not allowed when I was that youngster age, so the only promotion available was from Tuborg.

- Du Perikles - ka' Du sige mig - hvornår smager en Tuborg bedst?

- Hvergang!

Guess that had an influence...
