Palmetto 60 background:
The Palmetto is a 60% unibody mounted with an o-ring gasket, featuring a thick brass weight and USB-C daughterboard. The typical tray mount screw holes are not present, but there is a center post to prevent shorting out from flex. The only screws on the board are on the weight and the daughterboard. There are large holes in the case the large brass weight fits into; once the weight is removed, this allows you to push out the PCB easily, similar to the TGR/Singa Unikorn. The name Palmetto comes from the Palmetto Tree, which is the state tree of South Carolina. Palmetto was designed by Van Dusen mfg with our assistance. Van Dusen is also machining the boards in South Carolina.

This has been a highly anticipated 60% for me. Happy I was able to pick up a ano green case

Thanks for the support! The green ones went really fast. Still have a few units left in black!

This is a really project and frankly I’m surprised they didn’t sell out instantly.

The preorder for Palmetto kits will close at 11 AM today, thanks!
