As much as I would love for every board to be perfect, no kit can be 100% flawless. There can be small grains under the surface of the cerakote and the internal surfaces may be more coarse than external surfaces. Other caveats are as follows:
- No scratches on exposed / user facing parts of the keyboard (after installation of plate & PCB).
- Possible marks close to screw area (top and bottom pieces).
- Possible machining marks / micro scratches on the inside of the kit / pieces not exposed to the user.
- Brass patina: brass as a material tarnishes over time, you can clean it but note that it's a form of oxidation that we cannot control. This includes the weight and brass plate.
