I've honestly forgotten; are the spacebars in the wkl kit 7u, or is everything 6.25?

Building some boards in the near future and I want to be able to swap these on in November

Do you know if these will have any difficulties fitting on BOX switches?

[…] Two rather difficult keys to sculpt were ISO Enter and stepped caps lock. The latter came out simply delicious, if it weren’t PBT I would be probably eating it. […]

Fapped three times to the ISO Enter keycap and still good to go again. What a nice booty.

The bias against full satin finish is strong in the minds of PBT lovers. I blame IBM.

Very nice, can't wait for the delivery date :) I hope the final keycaps are as thick as the one in the logo / first picture.

The white prototypes I tested were nearly 2.0mm thick. If the final keycaps are anywhere close to that they will be mighty impressive!

Neat! I'd still prefer shiny sides and a satin top, like old Hall Effect key caps, but I'll take anything. :)

Could you perhaps make them slightly heavier so they aren't as hard to press down? I've found Bucklespring really latent due to the very long travel

- The Professional Ideas man
Does MT3 have R5 keys (molds) in all sizes?

From examining the MassDrop kits again I only see 1u, 1.25u, 1.5u, and 2u (and the spacebars, of course). What about 1.75u, 2.25u, and 2.75u?

R5 is the bottom row, so far we don't have all the key size for that, but we may add more molds the next time.

I got a second batch of prototypes. Everything is spot on. We are now fine tuning colors!

This, shiny sides looks so much better than textured

I am really anxiously awaiting my keycaps - I purchased a RF RGB that is waiting in a drawer to spring into action when these arrive!

Man, I missed this one. Hopefully there will be a future round. I imagine this would go well with the new WhiteFox keyboard.
