Title: [MechSupply.co.uk] DSA Royal Navy Double-Shot Keycaps
Post by: UKKeycaps on Mon, 16 May 2016, 13:08:42
Welcome to the official discussion thread for the DSA Royal Navy group-buy!

DSA profile double-shot keycaps available to UK and European buyers without the worry of insane shipping prices or import tax/customs fees!

ISO-UK keys included in base alphas and mods so you don't need to pay an obscene amount for an ISO-UK board.

Lots of child deals available for specialist layouts!

Here is a render of the keyset:

Can you post the composition of the non-standard?  I think I know what the keys are from the pictures, but I just wanted to be sure.

The set images show a tiny circumference and asterisk and upside-down (IMO) single and double quotes, but the renders show them large and right way up. Which is correct?

Is the Ergodox set short by 2 x 1.5U? The infinity needs 12off and the layout is showing 10. Please confirm intent, since to make this up with another set makes it a little uneconomic.

From the /mk thread, posted by /u/UKKeycaps

"The base set and modifier sets need to hit MOQ for this group-buy to go ahead. If someone purchases a set and the group-buy goes ahead but one of their child deal options does not reach MOQ, they will be refunded and notified. If they wish to have the whole order refunded then that is no problem and they will be refunded in full."

Alright, thank you! Let's hope the numpad set reaches the MOQ.

I'm in! Really hoping that the Non-Standard set reaches MOQ! If it doesn't I will be willing to purchase a few extra sets to make it tip, and hopefully a few other Non-Standard buyers will be willing to as well.

Bu-dump.

Really want that Non Standard kit. 30 more to go though...

Novelties would be nice too, but the MOQ for those is pretty massive.

Chinese vendor has over 100 orders taken for this GB, not sure which packs that includes though. I will make a push for this GB mid-way though and also near the end and I'm sure MOQs will be hit.

Edit - Also, if you guys want to see the numbers grow, you may want to subtly mention the keyset around Geekhack, or put a banner in your sig. I'm not really allowed to post about commercial stuff outside my own sub-forum

Yep. Just got my email too. Ergodox didn't hit MOQ but still being produced, thanks MechSupply for fronting the cost, at additional charge.  Looks like the France kit didn't make it. The Euro kits have the option to pay more if people want it produced.

Is there an update on the current schedule? The website is saying "Placing order" for quite some time now and it's not mentioned on PMKs keycap status page, so "September 18" seems like a hard date to hit.

Number of leftover sets remaining:

Base = 50
Modifers = 50
Num-Pad = 21
Novelties = 31
Non-Standard = 19
Planck = SOLD OUT!
Ergodox = SOLD OUT!
Euro = SOLD OUT!
Homing = SOLD OUT!

This means the Euro set never made MOQ? Or it is literally sold out?

I don't really know why I'm asking that :p What I really want to know if its still possible to get the Euro set as that is kinda a dealbreaker if not.

The Euro kit didn't meet MOQ, however I believe the people who got the Euro kit during the GB period were given the option of paying a little bit more to get the set made anyway. I don't know how many people took that route, but probably at least a few.

I did.  I think it was only an extra 5.  Kind of makes me think for smaller group buys the tip point should be set to 10 and then lower the price from there

Though I must say the Novelty set is a bit stale compared to the likes of Nantucket Selectric, but I do love me some more red! Basically a 16gbp enter key I guess  :))

DSA is uniform profile so chances are you will be able to fit your board just fine, unless there's any specific keys missing? If you leave a picture or KLE layout of the board you're trying to fit it might be better.

So the big things I'll need for the 68 key board i want (https://www.massdrop.com/buy/red-scarf-ii-68-key-custom-keyboard-kit) are a 1.75u shift key and 1u Ctrl, Alt, and Meta/Super keys. Below is the Layout for reference.

Shipping will start on the 7th of November without delay (unless of course there is some major delay :D )

These are actually in the UK, just in customs currently. I will need to be notified, pay the customs charge and then I'll get my hands on them. Just a little more patience required.

Of course if your patience has run out, refunds are still available!

It is unfortunate, but understandable, that you don't have control of the entire supply chain, so depend on others, and sometimes their estimates are not spot on.  But you've been communicative at every step of the way, and I have no trepidation that I won't receive it, so this has been a good buy for me.

Is it held by CCL? I have had more luck just ringing them directly and giving them the tracking reference number, they will then give you the payment ref and amounts to pay, then you can go to the website and pay it directly, their customs payment slips routinely take 1 week or more to get to me, and I am too impatient for that.

DSA Royal Navy Shipping Update 3 - The Final Stretch!
The image above is an image of DSA Royal Navy in natural light. Unfortunately the nature of this email is to inform of a further delay to the shipping of the keysets.

Signature Plastics have sent all the keycaps to MechSupply as 6 seperate consignments, 3 of these cosignments have arrived and therefore real images of the keyset can be showcased. However, shipping cannot begin until the reamining 3 boxes arrive. These packages are being held currently in UK customs, pending review of paperwork which has been submitted. Therefore the exact date of shipping cannot be estimated due it depending on how fast customs processes the remaining packages. A rough estimation of 2 weeks from this date is appropriate.
Therefore the new estimated date for the start of shipping is 28th of November 2016. Apologies for the delay in shipping of this group-buy and for any inconvenience caused. I appreciate there have been numerous delays to this group-buy, however all have been out of the control of MechSupply. If you would like to cancel your order and receive a refund, this is still a possibility. Reply to this email if you have any questions or queries regarding the group-buy.

A few more points for you all:

  • There will be no more delays, the keysets are 100% guaranteed to ship on or before the date stated on the product page (therefore they'll arrive in November for most customers)
  • It seems there will be a few sets left, these will be sold as special edition sets, with a few extra goodies/keys/bits thrown in
  • More high-res pics to come

NICE

I think i speak for most of the none-EU buyers in that we do not expect our orders to arrive tomorrow, we are merely expecting our orders to be shipped out since that is what was communicated/posted on your site not too long ago.

You don't speak for me.  With this amount of orders, I don't expect that shipping will be immediate, just that it would start on the 28th.  This group buy has been run very well, with delays based on factors outside of immediate control.

Just received mine here in States. Thanks for getting this all together. I'm sure your full of complaints by now but the packaging. I really wasn't expecting to receive my $200+ keycaps in a zip lock bag. I surely hope they all came overseas alright. Make me wonder if the keycap maker just sent you one huge box of millions of keys for you all to separate. Better this than nothing right?lol I'm sure fancy keycap boxes would have been more $$$ and taken longer. Unless I missed something at check out. Anyway, there here and quick glance they look fine.

Most of the time in the buys that I've been in,  this is exactly how they've been packaged,  unless you pay extra for a tray if it is offered (usually GMK),  and even when I get them direct from PMK they're packaged similarly.

Shipped percentage is now at 70%.

Sorting, packing and shipping this many orders is a large task, it's true, especially getting it done as fast as everyone wants it to be done!

Just received mine here in States. Thanks for getting this all together. I'm sure your full of complaints by now but the packaging. I really wasn't expecting to receive my $200+ keycaps in a zip lock bag. I surely hope they all came overseas alright.

Thanks for the replay. I figured that how it was with group buys. Not pissed as I know how much a PITA group buys are.
May move some keys around but here's a quick version.

There must be some sort of secret code in these missing/extra keys.  Keep reporting.   :p

Just checked my order and out of the five kits I ordered, no extra keys. Not sure if it was a mistake or not but I didn't receive a blue or red escape in the plank kit but luckily they were included in the modifier kit. This would have been an issue if I were trying to use these caps on two different keyboards.

I guess you're going to make me check my kit.  And if I do check it, I'll have to check all of the ones that have come in right after each other.

It would be a good idea to do so, no extra keys here but I'm missing a 1u Super key from the Non-Standard kit.

I got mine yesterday and found my "Z" has some kinda of dirt.
And there is only 1 "Super" in Non-standard set instead of 2.

Seems many are missing keys. I am missing an E, Alt, and two ESC keys. Hope after the holidays Joe can straighten all this out.

I'm missing the 2 Esc keys from the Planck Kit.

Has anyone heard on the proper way to handle missing keys?
