TopClack build stream monday august 30th @ 4pm PDT

Special Thanks:

OneCreativeMind for the original concept and name along with all of the feedback and support.

Nox for helping fund the prototypes




FAQ:

Is a PCB included? I will not be designing a PCB for this as there are already so many 60% PCBs made that it would just be a waste and silicon shortages are already a massive pain for prototyping even. It has been confirmed to work with the ANC-60, Plain60, h60, and WT60. Basically if it has a type-c connector it should work but I can't test every single option.

Can you add a top left badge blocker? No.

Can you release the files so I can 3D print it? No.

Will there be an aluminum version? At the moment there isn't plans for it but maybe later down the road.

Can you make it in X color? Unless it is listed in this post already, it will not be added.

Looks great and I love the back weight design.  Atomic purple is calling my name.

As mentioned in the google form, split spacebar support would be great.

Also, looks like brass and CF for the plates. FR4, Pom, or PP would save me money in the future.

I forgot to mention that in the post when I first made it. But I am thinking of POM and PC plates but just haven't made a final options list yet (hence IC  :D)

wow, this is so pretty! Excellent work. I was going to say though, it's kinda hard to see the curves on the bottom and I was wondering if there is a better pic showing off that curvy butt.

Is there any chance you'll have a WK option as well? Polycarbonate WK 60s are few and far between and I'd love to pick this one up.

why are the prices astronomically high to select from on the IC form? Is that what the prices for this will be?

The point of asking in price brackets is to determine level of interest at each bracket. This is so once I have a good idea of the level of interest and get a quote for the needed volume I can know if it is able to succeed at said level. It is not to determine how much profit I can make, if people are going with that mentality.

If the lowest bracket of $350 - $399 is astronomically high for you then maybe this isn't the board for you. I am not sure the final pricing atm given I don't have picture of how many people would be interested, Hoping to get the lower end obviously but volume matters a lot for that to happen.

By O-ring top mount do you mean burger mount? (Similar to how Cannonkeys' Brutalist line boards are mounted)

Yes on burger mount, not sure about the second bit as I haven't seen one to know how they are done.

Update:


I have asked for a quote and also looking at the cost of adding a WK layout as an option. Depending on this quote I might add the option.

Update:


Pricing has come in as well as a quick option update.

I have added a WK top option as there was enough people asking and it didn't affect pricing much at all. These now brings it to 4 color options and 3 top options, which is going to be fun.

Default plate material might change but this is not guaranteed at all, fill out your preference on the IC form if you would like to possibly influence this to change.

Pricing: (MOQ 80)
Dyed - $375
Clear - $370

As for dates, I am not too sure yet but looking at maybe october or november, if you have an opinion please let me know! (in the form if you don't want to post elsewhere  ;) )

I'm not really seeing much justification for the price just from a preliminary glance at the pics, but hey, i don't know shat about the cost of manufacturing and stuff, and there are plenty of other options if people don't like that price. Just looks like an average sized 60 to me, without a pcb, i would of excepted the price to be more in the 275 range, but like i said, i'm ignorant... and i don't care for PC anyway.

While I would love to be able to sell it for that low, unless I manage to sell hundreds I don't foresee that being possible. If interest turns towards that being likely, I will requote and change pricing accordingly.

A few boards that are somewhat recent (and prices have only gone up since these were made):
 - PC Sirius (no pcb, POM plate, brass sheet style weight): $325
 - PC Bumper (no pcb, no plate, tray mount): $295
 - PC Bacca60 (no pcb, brass plate, similar sized weight but in aluminum, I designed this for Chewwy, he and 3Dkeebs ran the buy): $360

To put it into perspective, the bottom/rear weight alone is 1.1 Kg of brass that has quite a bit of machining done to be able to fit the profile properly. Also has an extra part (or three) compared to the above, which yes only adds a small portion overall but enough to more than make up the difference.

Hopefully this helps explain that a bit.

That makes sense to me. You know how people are though, some are going to throw a fit no matter what. Because you know.. you're forcing them to buy it..

The board is looking clean. A slight tad on the pricier side, but considering its a low quantity run (I assume great QC then) and dyed polycarbonate is rarely done, I still think the price is pretty fair. Great looking finish on the prototypes - a pass for me as I've got an unbuilt 60 still lying around and the bottom + weight design doesn't quite align with my tastes (but it does look really great still) but GLWIC!
