KLE is labeled wrong I think, that left spacebar is 2.75 not 2.25
1us are also labeled 1.5 and 1.25

Looks fun. How does the middle of the plate feel? I imagine something as long as this, mounted just at the corners, might feel a bit unstable in the center?

Its a bit softer in the middle but the difference is negligible.

Changing the weight so after the heat treatment it gets clear coated so the scuffs dont come on it.

I hate arrows (except for TKLs) and numpads, but this board is so lit I want it.

This degree and price. That's... Nice.

GLWIC and hopefully GB!

This is the layout I never knew I needed, but will work so nicely on my desk by being much less deep than every other board I currently own and use. Very creative design and looks great too! Any rough ETA on when this will go to GB? Definitely intrigued & interested. 👍

I enjoy the design, and love that weight look. the skyline is beautiful

sadly the "oil slick", "rainbow", or "prismatic", etc. just makes me hate what ever it's placed on. it's just over used imo and doesn't add much other then the metal equivalent of RGB rainbow barf

Just completed the Dino104 GB. This will be an in-stock drop if I decide to run and the full aluminum would be around 300. If price permits the brass will be 420.69. This would be for 10 units, 5 aluminum and 5 brass.

Will fix this eventually, seems like its the KLE.
Just ordered e-white proto as well as brass from new manufacturer. Set to come in 2 weeks. If everything is good will order 10 units to sell.

While the KLE is down, I have a question about the layout. I can see from the plate that split space is an option. Will there be a 2x3u bottom row?

It is a 275 225 split space.

Protos have arrived! Brass has a couple scuff marks so if you were looking to buy that version keep that in mind. Board is now offered with or without engraving. You can also get raw brass or aluminum if you would like.
