ill throw out the proper numbers before bed

the purple set is $58 (including all fees bar postage)
black set is $53 (again including all fees bar postage)
the purple extension set is $30

104 mx/topre sliders in coloured pom will be $15 with any of the above sets



definitely going to pick up at least one set. the caps look really nice, and i'm sure i'll find a board deserving of the sweetness.

although it's not in the current sets, i'm looking forward to the day full hhkb support is offered! bunny pls make my dream come true

I second looking forward to the HHKB love!

Will the pom sliders be better than the 3D printed ones? I heard that they were wobbly and weren't really something you would want to use on an entire board.

Considering the price and similarity to original Cherry and GMK stuff I think these sets will be top priority for a lot of people. Wouldn't surprise me if Signature Plastics starts seeing a downturn in business from here.
It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

I'm in for one or both of these, and unless they have some unforeseeable downside (like they're actually made of cream cheese cunningly disguised as ABS) then I can't see myself ever ordering from SP again.

we can add additional spacebars to the gb

they come in a pack of 2, so a 6.25 and a 7x

a 2 pack of white would be $2.50
a 2 pack of black would be $2.50
a 2 pack of purple would be $3.50

i dont have a graphic prepared for them yet, but could i get a show of hands if people would like this option included

Would it be possible in the future to add a HHKB/Realforce (I'm not sure if it's the same on the realforce) MX spacebar that's compatible with the topre stabs? Seeings as this set will be sold along with Topre-mx compatible sliders? And the right 6u size?

i'll probably buy one of the first sets just to support the effort (very nice job with the quality and the pricing), but i agree in that some mx-to-topre compatible spacebars would be a real plus for the future. you'd be able to enter your own market space there as well, as now the only accessible replacement option is the black spacebar. every other color currently requires the purchase of an additional set/keyboard once the spacebar starts to develop shine, which is a real terrible position to be put in for topre owners.

i am curious though, do you know if topre/cm has a patent on the mx-style slider? i didn't see anything on the usa patent page, but with ya'll pricing the sliders so aggressively, you're actually likely to hurt cm's novatouch business. and i know they paid for a part of the tooling at topre's plant for them, so with all that money invested they'd be very likely to protect their patent, should they hold one.

will be any time now

also to note

we have a bit of an issue with the validation settings on the site for the spacebars, so they are gonna be 50 cents more than i mentioned above for a 2 pack, because the site is auto rounding the prices up, and we dont have time to fix it prior to the buy going live
