[IC] Alps DCS Alpine Winter 65% Add-on Kit w/ Arrow Keys
« on: Tue, 02 October 2018, 14:29:56 »
Hello everyone,

I recently reached out to njbair for his endorsement on running a small GB for in order to fill out a 65% keyboard with Alps mount DCS Alpine Winter. Skully sold a small run with extended compatibility for the clueboard, but even that did not have a blue R3 key for a proper layout.

LFK Keyboards has a 65% Alps PCB which supports the Cherry PCB mount stabilizers and is compatible with RS68 and Tada68 cases.

This is what will be included in the kit:
Qty of 1 R1 BGA Blank
Qty of 1 R2 BGA Blank
Qty of 1 R3 BGA Blank
Qty of 1 R4 BGA (GTL legends) Up Arrow Key
Qty of 1 R4 BGA (GTL legends) Down Arrow Key
Qty of 1 R4 BGA (GTL legends) Left Arrow Key
Qty of 1 R4 BGA (GTL legends) Right Arrow Key


KLE link

I chose blanks to keep costs down and the arrow key legends will be the same as those used on DCS midnight.
Shipping and Paypal fees will right around $5 for users in the US and $16 for Europe.
Hopefully this will not cost me too much out of pocket.

Pricing:
25 sets      $12.62 per set
50 sets      $7.52 per set
75 sets      $5.82 per set
100 sets    $4.97 per set
150 sets    $4.13 per set
200 sets    $3.70 per set
250 sets    $3.45 per set

Please fill out the google form if you are interested

The 60/65% Alps hotswap PCB I've been working on is almost finished too, please let me know of your feedback or any suggestions!

I’d definitely be in for a kit or two. Any chance of being able to add a function row blanks kit? Would love to use these with a tkl at some point. Will be in regardless.

I'd be into it if the entire set gets ran again.

Think you're looking at a small amount of people who have their set still.

I was hoping for at least 15 kits and I would buy out the rest but it's not looking like there is sufficient interest.

might have to run the full set to get enough interest.
I've never done it before, but I'm pretty sure I'm good at it

Yes, I would love to join if it's a full set either. Always want Alpine winter for HHKB layout, but either it's hard to get or were available when i were broke :). I fortunate enough to have a DSA granite Alps though, even though i not a really fan of DSA.

Sorry everyone, it has been a long time since it originally ran but I'm not interested in being the person to re-run it. I'm just not that invested in the colorway and wanted an easy 65% Alps keyboard.
