Today is the last day to order.

All kits will be made.

Reminder that you shouldn't stretch yourself thin, especially with the COVID and it being the holiday season. If you have to pass on this because you don't have the capital to do so, it'll be okay. There will be plenty of extras.

Thanks to everyone that has joined so far, it means a lot to me.

Next update will come from dvorcol with the final numbers.

Hey, any idea on the pricing of the extras?

Nope not yet, we'll probably know closer to when they'll ship.

No kidding about the plentiful extras. I guess it all works out for Hoody T.

Am looking forward to that Griseann, and also took the opportunity to get some black minibars - should work well with just about any old WoB set.

I will say, for GMK WOB, Hiney does rerun spacebars atleast once a year so I would get those.

Has production started for this set? JTK seems to have issue fulfilling GB as early as early 2020. Any insight would be helpful.

Novelkeys and I both have had trouble recently getting in touch with zF (the main point of contact for JTK). Once I get more info I can relay it back.

For our timeline, this set will not go into production till much much later because the molds need to be created.

Like the end of 2021 or some time in 2022 or almost 2023...???
Heard that they already have their mold - but hope they at least take their time to make everything right.
Wishlist: 1) nice thick Alps caps; 2) Cherry profile POM; 3) Hi-pro Iris/Kyria with adjustable tenting;
More
Wishful-list: 1) POM key caps; 2) We order from keyboard-layout-editor.com; 3) usable Trackpoint module

IBM M13 black
IBM SpaceSaver II
IBM KPD8923 Trackpoint
Choc mini Gateron black
PLUM 84 'Topre-clone' 55g Korean dome
HHKB Pro 2 HasuBT

I still have hopes that JTK can produce up to par (GMK / perfect alignment and no weird font oddities) keycaps so I'd be ok waiting long if that could come true

These are brand new molds (since different legends), so it'll take some time.

I am hoping for this as well.

Mike and I are trying to resolve this quickly and seamlessly.

Hi,

Feel free to say "no update". I was just curious about production not wholly because I'm impatient but in part because I enjoy hearing how things are going and all the neat nuances of production.

Cheers!

Looks like I missed these posts.

Haven't heard from zF/JTK in a bit, will post here if I get any useful information.

Now that we are coming up on a year since the GB started, are there any updates on this? NK still has the ETA as Q4 2021, I'm assuming that is not accurate?

It's been a while, but will we be prodding on JTK / ZF for any updates?

it's been difficult to communicate with JTK as of late, but if y'all get really desperate i can always try

but i haven't heard anything from them about my projects (i.e. not this GB) for a while now. not in like a concerning way, just in like a "oh you guys are clearly really busy" way.
