Just got mine from USPS today. I Have to echo what everyone else said, nice tight fit and sturdy construction.

The blue seems a little darker in person but I can't complain about it at all. Looks great :D

I got  my keyboard and case recently so I've got some pictures of my awesome  new case!





Tomorrow it gets to go to work with me, needless to say I'm excited.

Sooooo, when will custom orders be open again?

I would love to get one of these for my up and coming V60 Mini and maybe my KC 84...

I agree  :) It is inspired by the design that Binge drew a while back:

this is going to be intense.

(Attachment Link)

Rigid edges and botton for the keyboard to sit on, snap buttons/magnets depicted in magenta, handles are represented in black.

extra fabric folds over the top and connects to enclose the e-dox, edox case then folds in half where the handle then meet and someone can carry it around keycaps facing out.

Such art - so fabulous.

Well, right now we are waiting on some materials to come in so we can finish up a few cases from the last round. So we should be able to take some more in the next 1-2 weeks.  :)

f

I have been quoting 30 days for delivery, but we've been able to ship many orders within 3-4 days of payment. The next time I start taking orders, I will try to give a more precise timeframe.

It's been first-come first-serve so far, and I'll prob. do the same in a week or two when orders open up again. This is just for the sake of fairness and because it's the way we've been doing it. However, there is a good chance I'll change it to a different system in the future so just keep an eye on this thread.

Sounds good. That gives me enough time to work out what colour scheme I'm going to go for on my V60. It's a lot harder on backlit boards though :(

The only thing that I wish it would have was inner foam lining in case you have keyboards with smaller cases.

That would really great especially if you get smaller profile keycaps or like a tex case. You'd have a bit more space in there for the keyboard to move around but at the same time if you have a usb cable in there it'll probably keep it from moving

ErgoDox cases are sold out, but there are still 4 $49 Poker/HHKB cases. These things are about a million times better than the HHKB soft case, so get 'em, people  :p

Here is an awesome custom case we just did for mashby. It's based on the Penumbra keyset.

Intelli78 should still have the measurements from my JD40 case. I had DSA caps on mine so it might be a little off if you use a different profile.

Guys, there are now 2 more ErgoDox orders available for July but ONLY IF you place an order by Wednesday night. If you do, you get guaranteed shipping by the 16th. The artisan will be on vacation the rest of the month following that.

PM me if interested!

My case arrived on Friday, but I've been slammed and haven't been able to take proper photos, but I just had to share how much I love this case.

The craftsmanship is superb and I'm surprised just how sturdy the construction is. It's an extremely well made case. I packed up my daily driver and took it home for the weekend to get a feel for what it would be like traveling with my board and was very, very pleased. Intelli78 recommended installing the handle all around the case, which was a good call on his part. The Hammer 60% case is rather heavy, but the full-length handle makes holding it very secure. Yet, at the same time, since the handle is tucked between the fabric on the sides and bottom, it still looks quite elegant.

I can't recommend these cases enough. If you're looking for a secure, solid and great looking carrying case for your keyboard, this is the one to get.

Guys, thanks so much for the great feedback! I am thrilled that you like your cases. I really do believe that these are the best cases on the market. Beats the HHKB soft case by a mile. Shockingly, no one has purchased one of our cases for a HHKB yet!  :eek:

So... I have an update on the ErgoDox cases. A kind user donated some SA caps for case testing, and it turns out there is enough clearance in the current case design for SA caps. :) It is just wide enough to accommodate them without causing unwanted key presses. Here are a couple pics using various SA profiles:






So...anybody want to pull the trigger on these last two ErgoDox orders? Guaranteed shipping by the 16th if you order tonight.

I got one of the custom HHKB cases from you. I am very happy with it (although I have not had much opportunity to use it). I will probably use it to stick my HHKB in my backpack when traveling out the California this weekend :thumb:

Will see what can be done in August...artisan is booked for the rest of the month.

We picked it because we think it's the nicest color we have, and we know many GHers love purple (e.g., Purple GMK set). U no like? :-[

In other news, there is one more ErgoDox order available with guaranteed shipping by the 16th, but it has to be claimed tonight. Otherwise, no more orders until next month. Anybody want it?

Why just ergodox orders? I'm sure someone would jump on a custom order for another case. I know I'm eagerly awaiting the next round of custom orders so I can get something done for my QFR.

Is there an outer solid shell and then padding inside? What are the insides padded with? I'm interested in a few.

It's just a matter of specialization -- it's easier and faster to focus on one type of case when possible, so we just wanted to run ErgoDox this time. Plus, these cases are really just a side project for this artisan, so there is limited bandwidth. We'll open it back up for other custom orders early next month  :)

Is there an outer solid shell and then padding inside? What are the insides padded with? I'm interested in a few.

Yep! There is a hard interior foamboard shell -- very strong -- covered with synthetic fabric and protective padding inside. (Couldn't tell you off the top of my head what material the padding is made of -- something appropriate -- I can check with the artisan if you'd like.) These cases offer way more protection than something like the HHKB soft case. They fully prevent key presses and stand up to quite a lot of abuse.

Hard to tell but how much padding are we talking about? I'm in need of a protective case for all my boards that will withstand shipping overseas for example.
