As we do not know at the moment where Harald's PCBs are gone and whether China PCBs run at all I looked for a European supplier and ordered 3 sample PCBs.

Just finished first solder and test job successfully. Using lead-free solder was a new experience for me ;-).

With all other parts already on my side I am going to order some 20 more PCBs. Then I will start to work on your orders. Cause of shipping times boards will most probably not arrived as Christmas presents, but after Christmas is before next Christmas ;-)

Of course I'll give an update before everything is ready for shipment.

Sounds great! Thanks so much!

If I may ask, why use the lead-free solder? In a manufacturing environment is one thing, but from what I understand for hand piece work, it's nothing but trouble... more difficult to achieve a good joint and the higher temperature needed is tougher on equipment, board, and components.
Just curious for your perspective on this... I know you guys are the experts. :-)

Kind regards and much appreciation,
burkhard
