Hi, just wondering if there is enough interest for spacebar kits for some of the new boards supporting split spacebars, such as VE.A, Golbat-40%, Clueboard, Van44, CP-SQ and other usually 40% - 65% boards that have a split spacebar or similar configuration.

The keys I'm thinking to include are,
- 1x 2.25U
- 1x 2.75U
- 2x 2U

All keys are blank bottom row.

These cover the spacebar on the majority of these type of boards.

Was thinking about doing some basic colors like black, Dolch greys, beige, and some bright colors like cyan and purple.

Production will be either via GMK or one of the numerous thick PBT manufactureres, depending on colors, interest and MOQ.

Your thoughts?

Will these spacebars have convex tops?
If so I will be in for a few sets.
And is there a possibility for one colour of ALPS spacebars?

Looks like these would work with the CP-SQ -  in for anything HF coloured.

HF = Hyperfuse?

This is not full set or adapter, but just blank keys to use for spacebar

Profile will be the same, tooling for convex tops will be too much. From my experience, if you flip the keys, they're surprisingly comfortable to type on, specially if you are into flipped spacebars.

Agreed! 
I'm planning on using a DSA keyset to deck out my VE.A and options other than the usual SP stock would be most welcome :)

Hmm maybe a neutral color pack (beige, black, dark grey) and a more vibrant color pack (magenta, cyan, yellow)?

Any thoughts on including  any 1u keys?  Some 40%ers utilize these for split spacebar.

Since these are for spacebars I would suggest using PBT above GMK.

What would you consider a fair price for a pack of the four keys made by GMK?

I'm interested, classic black / beige would be good, other colors to match JTK sets would be good since they have a high compatibility for weird layouts already as well.

I'm thinking along the lines of doing this in two packs of 3 colors, so total 12 keys in each pack;
--- Retro pack - Black (CR), Beige (L9), Dark grey (N9)
--- Colored pack - Cyan (UN6037), Purple (UN6046), not sure on the third color

Thoughts?

Sounds good, with Skidata orange for the third colour?

Yeah, was thinking about that as well, given the recent spike in orange sets (Although I pretty much hate the color, but this a community buy)

Profile? I got a feeling this will only be in Cherry Profile.

Cherry for the first round, maybe we'll do SA/DSA in a subsequent round.

With SA/DSA the issue is the numerous colorways out there, the limited colors of GMK work in it's favor in this situation.

N9 is the dark grey from Dolch, or do you mean the lighter one?

I've mentioned earlier, tooling for convex tops will be too much. From my experience, if you flip the keys, they're surprisingly comfortable to type on, specially if you are into flipped spacebars.

I would be interested in either GMK or Gateron (enjoypbt) caps.

love to see Beige, Light Grey, Black, Dolch. If GMK colors, I think Cyan, Blue (N5), Purple would be kool.
