I’m happy to report that machining has begun on the production order! Thanks again everyone for your incredible support on this project.
Incidentally, as I’ve been tidying up various loose ends on the project, I discovered an earlier prototype that I still have. It is the one shown in the below image, which was about 1-2mm higher-profile than the final design.
It has no logo badge badge, an aluminum back-plate, and the Aperture texture powder-coat finish applied.
If any of these quirks particularly appeal to anyone (it’s quite big and blocky), I’m happy to sell it. TAKEN
