Is there someone willing to take the group buy further from Wodan ?

Maybe we could split the responsability and organize somehow....

I would, but running a GB from Norway with import taxes and high shipping costs would be a challenge :oops:
I'll gladly offer any help I can give to anyone who wants to run it though!

I wouldn't have any taxes if the stuff comes from Germany, and sending as mail tracked (no insurance) would be a bit cheaper in my country (@5.5->6Eur(EU, for USA/Canada/Others might be 1-2 Eur more) Packed in an bubbled envelope).

I would jump in to get everything bulk and proxy them forward to other people, but I wouldn't want to handle the gathering of the money and ordering the stuff with GMK etc.

So basically I would jump in with getting them bulk and then sending to the list of people that joined.

Haha, nice :)

So we need someone to collect the cash and submit the order to GMK :)

Would you help that person with everything needed to do that Wodan :) ?

A prrofile molds will be available for 1.25 mods now, after the recent carbon drop. Another reason for this set to be made.

Nope.

Someone needs to take it on. Someone with money (not me) and not soon to be in an ex officio territory with unknown shipping and customs arrangements (not me x2).

Deutsche Post killed all group buy plans for German people. Unless someone else picks it up this project is most likely dead.

I can take care of shipping if that would help. Worldwide untracked 4 Euro up to 500g. Deutsche Post is only a little bad :)

I really want this kit to be run; but, I really do not see the connection with the Korean's kit.

I would agree with this. I think they can be kept separately.

Please, let's run this. I would help with organizing to keep strain off the former runners. I would be in for multiple kits.

YES!
suggestion:
since it isn't just an addon kit but ment to adapt old cherry keycap sets, let's make the bottom row caps F-profile ONLY. onr at least as option. I'd love that!

I asked Wodan, if he would be ok with us running a similar kit. He said, it's fine as long as we don't call it HADapter.

Just as an info, here's the pic in the opening post of the geekhack thread:

I note that while it looks like this set features some keys not contained in Wodan's HADapter and HADditional sets
(and apparently some standard keys existing in original Cherry sets anyway),
it has no diamond keys, no symbol Win and Menu keys,
and above all no AltGr key.

No Wodan no HADapter. Cheap spinoff, will not participate.

Hey guys, before this discussion goes into the wrong direction. Of course, I have contacted Wodan before doing something like this and he has approved it.
This is not trying to be a copy of Hadapter so some keys will be different. It is more the attempt to bridge the gap between a modern keycap set and the keycaps sets you can find on old keyboards.
The demand for something like this is quite high at the moment in the community and many people were asking for it.

I had read the disclaimer in your previous post and was by no means implying you aree cheating or anything of the kind.
My post was just a note of some differences betwen your set and Wodan's HADapter (+HADditional).
In my opinion you are adding some useless keys (as they already exist in standard OG Cherry sets) and forgetting exactly those which made Wodan's sets so remarkable.

By the way: hi Wodan :mrgreen:

I really approve of this new GB!
And it doesn‘t mean HADapter II isn‘t going to ever happen.
But it really takes the pressure off me and allows everyone to get their bottom rows right.

Also HADapterII might take a whole different turn now that this GB is covering these caps. As mentioned before, I will be getting some kits myself for sure.

Also Hi kbdfr! Always a pleasure
