It's difficult to offer separate modifiers and alpha kits for GMK sets due to the pricing scheme. T0mb3ry, designer of Carbon and Yuri, describes it here. It might be best to approach designers to get their input as many of them have done both Signature Plastics and GMK-based group-buys.

I often wonder if I'm the only one who prefers the handbag Capslock symbol.


Me too!

I keep telling myself no more keysets.  Ah well.  In for the M kit.  I think I'll have to start buying boards just to put keycaps on...  LOL

I think it has to do with pricing and MOQ. If a set isn't very popular it can be hard to get to MOQ for just the base set, there won't be any extension available then/ or very expensive. But for a very popular set like 1976 it's possible since it will always fund + massdrop helps funding.

You're implying that if a set is unpopular, then it will be hard enough hitting MOQ for the main set. Therefore offering alternate sets is kind of pointless, with which I agree.

However, say you were offering a base set and an optional ortholinear modifier kit; I can see why ortho users would be deterred from getting the base set in addition to the modifier kit: it's more expensive and wasteful than getting only what you need. So wouldn't a standalone set simply boost the ortho option's popularity?

From there, we could argue that offering an alphas kit + modifier kits is exactly "getting what you need". Yet, I could see that (in the case of single colour sets) everyone is getting alphas anyway, so why not include them with each modifier kit? I will have to confirm with the manufacturer, but don't larger sets mean less $ per key?

Keyboards / Fixing a Cracked Standoff in an HHKB Pro 2
« Last post by dasein1980 on Sat, 20 October 2018, 13:49:00 »
I recently purchased a new HHKB Pro 2 and Realforce 87u.

I swapped the domes, but when I was putting the HHKB back together, I noticed that a standoff in the bottom case had a large crack in it.

I doubt I did this, because I only unscrewed it once before I noticed it. But I've already put too much work into this board to return it to the seller.

I'm a little bit of a perfectionist so I want to fix this, even if it's not causing any real problems.

I looked into ways to fix plastic screw holes and found these videos that use epoxy, teflon tape, and screw on YT:

Does anyone have any experience with this method and some wisdom they can impart?

If not, can anyone see any potential problems with this?

Thanks!

Where would you guys put the decimal or the plus key?  Are you just going to use the top alpha row plus key for tenkey entry?

^ There is a blue/purple WKL on the site now if you like that combo.
