Hi everyone, been a long time keyboard enthusiast but a first time IC/GB runner so bear with me.

Introducing...

Rukia Wrist Rest

Rukia has been one of my favorite board for awhile and I decided to make my own wrist rest and share it with the community. I receive permission and the wrist rest file directly from Jaxx already so I'll let pictures do the talking!




GB Timeline: 11/3/2020 - 11/17/2020
MOQ: 20 units in each material
Location: limited to US and Canada. However, will order limited extras that will be open to internationals
Shipping: Roughly $10 via USPS priority mail in US, $15-20 for Canada.
Price: PC $80 / Alu $72 + shipping. This is my estimate for 20 units. Apologies for higher prices than most but I do use a slightly higher price manufacture just because ease of communication/previous transactions. If total units exceed estimate and price is cheaper, will apply differences toward shipping cost.
Time: 2-5 weeks
Color: Grayish Light Turquoise (More gray hue than Pantone below)


Details on quality/fitment:
The fit will be perfectly aligned. However, in order for aluminum to anodize, there will need to be holes for it hook and hang. Therefore, there will be 2 drill holes on the back of the wrist rest where it oxidize and liquid will drip down; resulting in tiny bleed spot as pictured below. My solution to this will be putting bump-on that will be included in the purchase.



For alice-style (non Rukia) owners, this will also kind of work for your board but with a caveat.
Rukia is an alice-style board but with slightly different bottom contour. This wristrest will still fit your alice-style board but most likely will have a slight gap. Please refer to picture below for a rukia wrist rest on a Lubrigante

Invoices have been going out if you ordered PC only. Alu have not meet MOQ yet but in talk with manu on negotiating prices so we can still make it happen!

Would it be possible to let us know how many orders you got for each one?  :D

I would want to wait until GB ends (or at least all payment received) since I'll be doing a giveaway next week to promote this GB. However, currently we are at 30 units for PC and 5 for Alu based on google form.

If Alu won't happen can we change our order to PC?

Alu has made some progress and now at 12 units! I think this might hit MOQ after all!

Even if we don't hit MOQ, I'll re-negotiate the price with manu to see if he can keep the same. If he decide to raise it, I'll send a separate email to alu buyers and offer option to either proceed at higher price or switch to PC.

As mentioned in the original post, GB will be open only to US/Canada (unless you have a proxy) because of the shipping cost/risks. However, I'll be ordering extras and open up those to international after receiving them. I'll go through the list and reach out to the individuals who are from EU and work with them on shipping/logistics if they are still interested.

Last week to place order. All invoices not paid by 11/13 will be cancelled.

Aluminum will have a slightly longer timeline. Will have a more definite answer in a few days

Tomorrow will be the last day to order!

Reminder: PLEASE pay your invoice. This is especially for the aluminum material buyers since we barely below MOQ threshold. If you change your mind, please tell me early on.

Thanks

any invoice unpaid will be cancelled and blacklisted. its ok if you change your mind and no longer wish to participate, just tell me so I can place the order with manufacture instead of waiting for your payment

just quick update: my idiot self did not account of thanksgiving/holidays. Just got payment through this week. should be only behind schedule by a week.

Timetable:
*UPDATE 11/30 - Payment made (1 week delay due to holidays and I need to go to bank to initiate international wire)
*UPDATE 12/8 - Manufacture started.
*UPDATE 12/26 - Happy Holidays! PC is now done. Getting sand blasted to ensure all frost is the same. Ano is in the color adjusting phase, will have to go through a couple iteration of this to ensure colors turn out correct... they lost the color card from the proto :facepalm:
*UPDATE 12/31 - PC wristrest picture from factory. still need to go through polishing to see how it'll turn out as far as 'frostness' goes. It does seem a bit more whiter than proto so hopefully polishing can fix it and don't have to be redone

UPDATE- PC all done and looks great! Alu color still not exactly how I want it to be and ask them to make a gray-ish hue tone tomorrow..

Please give some advice for those who are getting the aluminum version

Hey!

Alu buyer here, I could live with the current color but in my personal opinion, I'd definitely want it to be a more of a gray tone.

Thanks for the update!

alright. here's the new color. props to them for one day turnaround.
This looks pretty close to what I got. Gave ok to produce in this color. 



*Update 1/11 - everything packed and ready to go! There were 1-2 units with minor imperfection and waiting on factory to fix those. Please see pictures below, factory packed them individually for me and very nicely protected.


picture of minor imperfection that will be fixed (which is what we are waiting on):

Hi all!

Sorry for the LONG delay. I've been on vacation and went back to see family past 3 weeks. Only had my phone so it was hard to do much work/updates. I am now back and was SUPPOSE to have the wrist rest sitting at my door step. However, I check tracking and it's been sitting at the port waiting for DHL pick up for the past week  :mad:

I contacted shipping company and they said it's aiming to be picked up by today/tomorrow (2/1-2/2).. transit time is 3-4 business days from pick up. On the other hand, it is currently snow storming over at the east coast so even if I had them, I wouldn't be able to ship them out. Thank you everyone for the patience.



*UPDATE 2/3 - package FINALLY got picked up on 2/2 and should arrive to me by this weekend. will spend all weekend packing. delay at port caused by backlog before the Chinese New Year. thanks for patience again

*UPDATE 2/5 - item currently at NYC customs. DHL showing the following message so I hope this special clearance doesn't take too long and inspection doesn't damage any goods.

I've received 1/3 of the wrist rest! Currently invoicing for shipping in the order of your payment time.

You can check status of your shipping here:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vQJHJQxXv-uHtulG4mPguB8KkgsyRAxhwCAGZ_5EWujro3k4D-U37mxBH0wN4fChrrbCJHdmc__3zsm/pubhtml?gid=143157120&single=true

The surface of the wrist rest is not as smooth as rukia due to sandblasting. It will become smooth over time or you can wipe it down with non-scratch clothes or nail buffer/polisher (The smooth side) If you are absolutely unhappy with the quality or find any fault. Please contact me directly first to resolve.

Alright Aluminum finally got in! I digged through the 40+ PC on top and pulled out 2... it looks perfect EXCEPT under certain angles/lighting.. you can see machining marks on the bottom.

Completely devastated this happened but this is due to the back and forth on color. I'm unable to return these and factory is off for Chinese New Year.

However, I'm not sure if it is ALL of them yet. Factory sent me pictures and looked like it was perfect.

If I end up only have flawed units left, I have 3 proposals for solution:

1. Complete refund and cancel your order (unable to refund the paypal fee which was $2.39)
2. Offer a discount with free shipping which is roughly $15
3. Wait until after CNY and see what I come out with after discussing with manufacture

Hope you guys understand and my dearest apologies.
Here are the pictures for comparison. Both is the same unit but one not as visible and one is more visible.
