Looking good! Btw - what kind of screws are you using for holding the parts together?

Sorry to jump in a bit late.. but, would it be easier to use the smt header row like the snes pcb board made by prerunnerseth?
From the pictures it looks like a solder through hole.. (sorry if I'm saying wrong things)

But it looks great anyway :)
Cheers! :D

I don't think there's room for the additional thickness.

Nice idea, though!

There is no room for headers of any kind and you only really need to solder 19 pins not all of them. But as we have it now if a tiny bit of solder is added to the controller pcb gpio pads just screwing both the pi and controller board like Wermy has in his pictures will make enough surface contact where you will probably not need to solder anything!!

Don't contact me about obtaining my board files (as you will not get them). If my Boards or PCB Kits are sold out, they will be restocked as soon as I can get them and there is demand for them. You can join the mailing list on my Website to be notified when they are available.

So, to anyone who has done something like this before, how long do you expect before we can start ordering these?

A few weeks so we have everything tested and are ready to be made.
