Hello keebs, i'm Geon

I am very excited to introduce my first foreign market product, Vanquish65.
I run a CNC factory in Korea and now I'm producing F1-8X keyboards and selling them.

The Vanquish65 is my second keyboard in a new attempt, and will show our direction and philosophy.
It designed as a 65% tray-mounted keyboard with a torsion beam structure.
I'm sure, it will eliminate prejudice against tray mounts.

Sorry, but it is difficult for me to communicate in English, so please use the link below for quick reply.


Discord - https://discord.gg/Znt2Fdn
Instagram - https://instagram.com/geonworks



252536-6

The housing is single-structured with the material A6061-T651


252538-7

The Vanquish65 is a 65% keyboard with supporting two types of CAPS LOCK, BACKSPACE and SPACE BAR (6.25U and 7U).

252540-8

PCB will be manufactured exclusively.

252542-9

A total of five pcb brackets are used and a variety of materials are available as options to change strength.

252544-10

The section was enlarged so that it could be seen directly rather than explained in words.

252546-11

I changed the exterior design by the opinions from the discord. Because I am focusing always more on basic things than the exterior design.

252558-12



252548-13



252550-14



252552-15

It is the keyboard that focuses on usability, therefore excessive logos and names of keyboards would be not printed or engraved.

252554-16

Screws are invisible from the outside.

Housing Material : Aluminium A6061-T651

Really cool idea for mounting. I would say that when you liken it to suspension, you are missing the damping aspect though. Possibly leave a tad of room for some foam/silicone padding to add that damping factor

Very cool mounting mechanism but like beigeandbrown pointed out, you need damping or it will vibrate too much and ping.

ISO is thinking about what to do because the order quantity for F18X is only about 1 out of 100 units.

Hey Geon,

I saw that you ran a Korea group buy for the F1-8X. I am Korean and wondering what forum or what site do you use to run these group buys so that I don't miss out on them.

This is extremely interesting. I am very interested to see what other materials you use for mounting and the affects it has on the typing experience. I may just have to pick this up. I'm honestly hoping the group buy is still a ways out though. I normally wouldn't care too much, but I would love to see hotswap on this board. I am concerned that Kaihl sockets would interfere with the mounting posts though, so it may not even be possible.

I'm not gonna lie, I was disappointed to read that this was a tray mount until I opened the thread. Thank you for opening my eyes to my own tray mount prejudice. I will strive to become better.
