D60Lite - 6085 Edition:

Wei from KBDfans surprised me by offering to run a special 6085 themed D60Lite keyboard kit alongside the keyset.
The inspiration stems from my old, discolored Xerox JD-2.

Pricing information for all vendors will be added as it becomes available.

Wei provided me with renders to give people an idea of what's to come:


*Photos of the physical sample will be provided as soon as they are available.

A special bare-bones kit will also be offered to pair with the D60Lite:




Marco - thank you for the amazing renders and for putting up with my constant changes and last minute asks. You're the real MVP! Marco's socials: Instagram | Twitter

Great style, amazing kitting. I really appreciate 2x3u spacebars in the spacebar kit.

A day 1 cop for me of most kits.

Bought everything except the norde kit.

That 40'S kit IS INSANE. There's enough keys to ALMOST  cover 2 boards with just the kit and 2 sets of alphas. I fully plan to borrow some mods from the base and novelty kits to cover 3 boards.

Is it too late now to add a tab key on the cyrillic/hiragana alphas kit? With an extra tab, you can use the base kit and an alphas kit on two boards.

I would say it's probably too late... Yeah. I already paid for mine. We are past the point of no return.

Just buy the novelties kit.

I would have added a secondary tab if there were extra/accented enters in the base kit, it doesn't make much sense to include extra tabs otherwise. However, the novelties kit provides a tab and an extra ANSI and ISO enter. But yes, it is too late to make any kitting changes.

I am out of Con-US and the quote for shipping was hefty. It is a shame vendors did not work out an agreement for competitive shipping pricing. Even more, considering the multiple order they are getting nowadays.

I just tested a Burbank address on Keyspresso and I'm seeing a $11.55 shipping option for a base kit. If you're currently based in LA, you should go with Keyspresso.

was just about to cop but is it just me or are there keys missing from the 40s?


I ran the 40s kit by the 40s discord awhile back when I was working on the kitting. It shouldn't be missing anything major.

dammit those ****ing casuals let me down, most of the bottom row is missing.
it has been pointed out to me that those keys are covered in the "base kit", but who the hell want to spend 100aud for maybe 10 usable caps. ok sure technically not 100 because i guess the alphas count for something. fine 60ish aud for a few caps.

idk man "base kits" are bull**** and this is why i ****ing hate that its the standard form for cherry. why tho, why do cherry set runners get rock hard at the thought of a "base kit" when  kat, sa, dsa, (others?) so casually just keep mods and alphas separate? its because of gmk isnt it, they are the big bois on the block, they set the standard, they are loathed to do anything outside of normie kitting and use "base kits" to emphasise that.
sorry if this feels personal, its not. i just ****ing hate that gmkunts has that much influence and am slightly tilted that the 40s discord would let this one slip. thanks for making an effort, its better than most.

Check on https://dailyclack.com/ too. I looked at the Cyrillic alphas kit and postage is only $15 AUD ($11.64 USD) to California. That makes the Cyrillic alphas delivered $44 AUD ($34.14 USD).

Sounds like we found a solution :) they're a good vendor too.

I also got the D60Light, it looks like it'll be a really nice retro aesthetic combo.

Sadly I had not touched the idea in a long time (last thing I did was get a GMK version of the legends).
But on the plus side, I guess I'll finally be able to have a set with the idea I had

no offense, but I'm kinda glad you didn't.
ePBT has gotten so much better lately and I really like the compatibility and extras in this set that just would not have been possible with DCS.

No offense taken. Back in the day the only option would have been SP DCS.
The last time I had looked into making this set was 2018 when I had OutragedPudding make some GMK compatible legends for me. I just suck at putting anything out (I had originally made Sky Dolch before it was a thing https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=71629.0).
If I would be making this set today, it would have just as many options (I just would have done a few things different).
Right now I'm just happy I can get my hands on it, since I have have not been active in the keyboard community this past year (+) and might have missed it. I just wish I got a message on my thread that a new set was being planned (even if I understand that it's so old that people were not aware of it)

I wish I went ahead with my same idea from a few years ago https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=77809.0
Sadly I had not touched the idea in a long time (last thing I did was get a GMK version of the legends).
But on the plus side, I guess I'll finally be able to have a set with the idea I had

no offense, but I'm kinda glad you didn't.
ePBT has gotten so much better lately and I really like the compatibility and extras in this set that just would not have been possible with DCS.

No offense taken. Back in the day the only option would have been SP DCS.
The last time I had looked into making this set was 2018 when I had OutragedPudding make some GMK compatible legends for me. I just suck at putting anything out (I had originally made Sky Dolch before it was a thing https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=71629.0).
If I would be making this set today, it would have just as many options (I just would have done a few things different).
Right now I'm just happy I can get my hands on it, since I have have not been active in the keyboard community this past year (+) and might have missed it. I just wish I got a message on my thread that a new set was being planned (even if I understand that it's so old that people were not aware of it)

Hi! Oh wow, I was unaware that anyone else ever proposed the idea of making a set based on the 6085 keyboard. Had I been aware of your old thread I would have definitely hit you up.

Also I still think DCS is great. However, I'd be more tempted to go the Alps dyesub route for that  :p.

Really cool set. Walks the line of being understated and interesting really well. Picking most kits up for sure.

I noticed that the color quite similar to the epbt ivory. May I know are both the exact same color? (Alphas and Mods)
If yes i may grab one to mix and match with my Ivory set.

Of course, I don't know for sure, but as these colors are custom-matched against keycaps from nu_types' keyboard, it is highly unlikely they will be a perfect match. Also, these here have maroon legends on the alphas, so keep that in mind, I guess. :) /Johannes

Johannes is correct. This set is color matched to caps from my Xerox JD-2 keyboard. This will likely not be a perfect color match to any other ePBT sets.

Such a great key set design, thanks for running it! I went in pretty deep with the kits. Hope the Rama Works key cap makes MOQ.

I love the fact that the right cap set or keyboard at a certain time can grab another unsuspecting member of the public and pull them into the madness that is this hobby.  Welcome to the fold PixelPlays, start looking for things you don't really need, to sell them.  You are going to need more funds once ePBT 6085 arrives and you get to feel it.

This is instabuy for me. This is the only set that I'm truly interested in right now.
So much better than other GMK GBs right now.
