This actually looks way more appealing than I had thought it would! and great on the wires, it looks stellar! The blanks spots on the board looks really good, gives it a lot of character. But did you design the plate yourself? since it's a rather odd decision to include a 6.5u spacebar and block off...

Just popping in to say invoices has been sent out and that, AFAIK, you have until the 9th of June to pay. I guess this also means that you can place your order until then, if you haven't already.

ISO keys has also been added, and the price is now $55.

I am just gonna post this as a kind of bump, and because I really want this to happen. This set might not look flashy or as exciting as some other, but Cherry White-on-Black is hands down one of the most elegant keyset there is. It's like a good suit and tie for your board 8-) https://dangwang.files...

Re: Carbonated non-alcoholic drinks of choice?

Cherry Coke all day, every day!
(maybe it's more like a few a week, I want to keep my teeth)

If I can't get that, i much prefer regular Pepsi to Coke, much better tasting. Coke is too dry for me.

Hmmm....

It's "ICON" because there is no text on enter, shift, caps lock, tab and backspace.
Basically it's how the mods normally look on most ISO/Non-US Cherry key sets look.

Purple mods are fine, but they shouldn't have been the first colorway that was run. At that time a lot of WoB sets from 1800 boards (IIRC) was also harvested, to make people participate in the GMK group buys since the MOQ was so damn high. It would only have made sense to have run it in WoB. Fun fac...

Isn't Zealios switches just Gaterons with different springs, and then Zealios has exclusivity on the Cherry MX Clear equivalent stem? The purple one.
As far as I could gather, the new Gateron switches now share the same housings (clear tops and semi opaque bottom).

I used a very old jewelry file. It wasn't broad enough to fit the hole, so it made it harder to achieve a good result. But I also underestimated how much trouble a bad job would give me and rushed it. Should have been more patient!

Hey Broadmonkey: How much filing did you have to do for the stab clips? Unbelievably, I've still got to install mine! Steel keeps putting me off.

The 250 minimum order is for each key, that means you have to order that specific amount for every unique key cap you request, so you cannot split the order as Prelim asked.

Re: Face U/MX-mini U replica, acrylic/alu plate, KEEP ORDERI

There is no standard keycaps per se. There is what is often referred to as Filco layout (or modern) which uses 1.25u bottom row modifiers, 6.25u spacebar and a long left shift. This is also what a modern G80-3000 uses although I am not sure on the stem positions on the spacebar and caps lock. Afterm...

That highly depends on what keyset you want to use...

Getting a keyboard with the layout and form factor you want is one thing, getting your preferred keyset to fit your keyboard layout is another. Once you get into custom keyboards you'll start to notice how big a problem this really is.

I think there is a bit of misconception regarding the "piracy" issue of the PCBs. The part that is supposedly pirated is the actual PCB design meaning traces, choice of components, placement of said components and the actual work of putting it all together.
