Both colors. Might sell the one I don't like as much but probably keep both.

Turned out it was really quick.  Local shop that I can drive to FTW!

Now it is still going to do some magic to make it Filco compatible.  It is going to take me all weekend if not longer.  I still have hardware parts arriving on Tuesday.  After that, I need to put every case together, and then figure out a good and efficient way to pack these.  Then print some labels, lots of tapes, trips to the post office, etc, etc.  So I won't be able to ship these out for at least another couple of weeks.

Meanwhile, Hopefully I will have time to post pictures as I go.

Very creative. I like the layered approach for these cases.

I still have a couple of each color combo available.  Most of them are paid for already.

Ragnorock is organizing a group buy of a set of red on black 87-key set with an add-on kit for Phantom (1.5x modifiers and 1x diamond keys).  Also available is a 104 add-on set. There is also an ISO add-on kit if it reaches 15 orders.

I think this set would look pretty good with my black+red acrylic cases.

For the first time, here is the opaque black with transparent red acrylic case.  Keep in mind that the red will actually be darker when a keyboard is installed in the case and block out some light.

So TIL that my Kustom Filco REALLY needs a new case.



Any chance there may be an extra case litster? I would buy it in a second!

I'm the only one who doesn't like the big screw heads? I'd prefer a slick smooth seamingless (does that word exist?) acrylic top.

I believe there's a few left but not many so you should PM him and get in on this

Flat screws will require gluing of the different acrylic layers to keep them in place from my understanding. While I'm not a Huge fan of it myself, litster says it doesn't interfere with you when you're typing so that's fine :D

I think if you get the case you can just saw off the screws to make it flat, but like I said glue might be needed

Seemingly there is no word seamingless.

Thx. So I indeed made up that word xD

Yes, I'm sure that the screws won't interfere, my concern was entirely aesthetic. I'm also sure that the vast majority likes the aesthetic touch of the screws, not my case though.

I'd love a completely flat acrylic top (not even screw holes), but a flat head embbeded shiny screw would be interesting. I should stop threadcrapping at this point, I'm not even taking part in this buy :tongue1:

I made one with sunken screws and nuts.  It looks good, as good as my current design.  But it required gluing the top 2 layers, the middle 2 layers, and the bottom 2 layers.  I made a mess gluing them and it took a long time for me.  I could ask the shop to do but it would cost more labor.  

My current design works pretty well.  the case is actually thinner than your regular Filco case.  So even with exposed screws, they don't come up very high.  If currently your palm or your thumbs touch your keyboard's case while you type, then the screws might interfere with you.  But if you do type like that, you are doing it wrong :-).

KL, you got PM.

the red and blue is just the border of the case right?
i just thought how awesome it would look if you cut out some logo or letters above the arrows and the red/blue would be visible from the layer underneath :D
