[GB] Round 7 / ALGOL-style / Deadline 2018-11-30

A lot of people don't realize that the 7bot is hand-cranked (I'm not kidding).

I believe you. That's probably why he changed my escapes from HoneyB to HoneyC and from locked to unlocked.
No idea why I get that 1$ rebate on round 7 though.
I just hope my red escapes are included else my set will be too dull.

Sometimes the prices of kits you've ordered go down.

Think this is a case where 7bit doesn't have the stock on hand & will be ordering the HONEYC replacements alongside Round 7 caps, hence why it triggered the $1, 25% discount for a Round 6 cap/kit.

So the HoneyB red escape keys I ordered as in stock leftovers will be replaced by new still to be produced HoneyC keys that will be delivered in 4 years or so?
If that’s the case my whole full set and heaps of leftover sets are for sale as soon as they come in.

White alphas, grey TKL mods as base sets and 160 worth of leftovers for 60 to 75% keyboards in grey and colors.

Sounds like my Oblivion set! Hagoromo alphas, Monochrome mods. It's for my "midgame" board while my Round 7s are for my own full custom I'm tinkering with when I have time & inspiration.

If only that was black alphas and and grey mods. So close to my dream set that may never be, since white on black isn't an option in round 7.

A few standalone green keys seem to be missing

e.g.

ALGOL/RETRUN225/GREEN
ALGOL/LOTUS/R1U100/GREEN

would love to order these!

Hey guys! Not sure if this is the best place to ask, but do you think 7bit will keep some the faulty Round 7 keycaps in the factory? I just can't afford the regular caps and I thought about asking if I can buy a bag of cosmetically faulty ones that would be thrown away otherwise. I hope I don't sound greedy.

:o

And Round 7 will start when I shipped Round 6.
:-)

@7bit: Will there still be a Hyper7 kit? Apparently it's not listed among the other kits.

Also: What does "Start of GB" mean? Is this the date where you send a final order confirmation to Singnature Plastics or is the production already starting then?

I believe everything is shipped to 7bit, and he then creates 'okay leftover kits' from those or sorts them into grabbags himself to purchase and go through.

Let us know how it goes, I might be interested as well depending on the price :)

I'm not trying to be cheap or ungrateful, but I hope he won't charge a lot for them. If I can get a half of a normal grab bag full of random cosmetically faulty ones for $20 or something like that, I will be very very very happy.
7bit is a notorious(ly good) thug in the keyboard world. And he's only a single blue keycap!


Luna I hope you'll find that red keycap.

7bit still has R1 red LOTUS, KBDRUNNER & HELVETICA in stock (at least as of my last WASSUP a few days ago) that'll be the right colour & profile to sub in for an ESC.

The SA Oblivion Monochrome mods come with a R1 ESC key in RAS that could match, but they're not out 'til June-ish. Oblotzky would be the point man to ask how much of a match they'll be to HONEY* runs, but you might be able to find someone who's not using their red caps (also comes with blue & grey variants in the set).

Thanks!
Yep, I already checked the leftovers, the Lotus could do it for me.
But I might have found someone willing to sell me an actual escape.

Awesome! I'm going to be using my red keys from Oblivion, else I'd have offered you mine (if it was a match).

SA Oblivion uses GAL for legends though, a light beige so it wouldn't be a perfect match. I myself am also looking for red ESC and RETURN, and blue ESC, though the RETURN is the important one as I have novelties for the escapes :)

I managed to gather white alphas, gray mods, a red escape a blue enter, black cursors and a few Fn keys in different colors all for a VA68M. Should be sweet!

Sounds very similar to the initial scheme I envisioned for my 96 when I bought Oblivion until my RAS spacebar from PMK came in & I decided to go all-in on the red for accent colours.

Just saw pics of Oblivion on a Planck, I thought those high caps wouldn’t look good on such a small keyboard but it looked awesome. Might try my dev/tty on it.

For Algol I think I’ll go with Violett/Cream and some gray accents.

7bit said R7 will lift off once R6 is done shipping, which he plans to wrap up this month or so I think? Then I would assume orders will close for Violett&Cream as that is the first color to be produced, while pre-order remains open for the other colors until it's their turn.
