I am holding for a group buy from within the EU. I'm not interested in paying import taxes twice.

Re: [IC] T1 Tactile Switches

The Interest Check has gone really well. I am satisfied that there is enough interest in these switches to make it worthwhile to run a Group Buy. The GB will be run on my subdomain https://preorder.opticboards.co.uk This is purely to keep GB orders separate from my day to day orders. Just makes runn...

Just to clarify: So, "Durock" == "Lee" in that link about the "Stealios" controversy ?
And Durock has always been the only brand/manufacturer of the T1 switch?
That is how I read it, yes.

Re: [IC] T1 Tactile Switches

Hello! Just a quick update on the IC. We are 100 responses in, which is fantastic and it definitely seems like there is interest in this switch.

Just to let everyone know that Mike @ NovelKeys and I have came to the decision that this GB will succeed no matter what. I will be purchasing at least 10,000 and Mike has pledged to pick up whatever else is needed to meet the 96,000 that we need.

Just to keep everyone up to date. The current plan in case we do not reach 96,000 switches is too order 48,000 switches and fulfil as many orders as we can in the order that orders were made. The remaining orders will be given the option to cancel for a full refund or to keep their place in the queu...

Hello everyone! First of all, apologies for the wall of text, but it is worth a read. Unfortunately I have a bit of bad news. I have been informed by the distributor that the lead time for these switches is now **16** weeks instead of the 12 weeks before. This isn't really something that could have ...

I have asked my distributor this, however I think that if there is a price drop it may only be at 96,000 (twice MOQ).

Really nice price, I'm in for a set. Can you specify which switches it'll be? Plate/PCB mount and black/clear housing? These will be PCB mount, that way if you needed Plate mount then you can snip the extra pins of to make plate mount compatible switches. The Cherry Part No. is MX3A-11NW. Which are...
