Knobster back in stock in the near future?

The outlets have kept pushing back the restock dates for months now. Will it really be available anytime soon? Thanks!

It will be available around mid April. The rotary encoders came in last week, after nearly 6 months (or maybe more I don't remember anymore), the PCB assembly company is doing their thing at the moment, then it is our job to put them together.

We already placed the order for new ones. The production of the rotary encoder takes 16 weeks, and we got our hands on the last stock of USB connectors, which was going out of stock for 32 weeks.

Ralph,

Do sit a workbench and do all the soldering? :P

Thanks for the update. I would love to get my hands on a retail knobster.

Yes you can. It'll soon be for sale at XforcePC as well. They're all hand made by family and friends (and us), so it takes a while to have enough stock to ship to XforcePC.

Thanks, just ordered one! I hope they are tested thoroughly. I had a diy one that was made for me that had issues as I wrote in the other thread. Thanks again!
