[IC] CNC-milled switch lubing station - (June1-June7)
« on: Fri, 29 May 2020, 01:06:22 »


[Update] GB is live for 7 days: https://graystudio.club/products/grays-switch-lubing-station?variant=32447414927460

It will include a switch lubing station, 2 brushes, and custom-made packaging. Thank you! GB will run for a week, and the production should take less than a month.

--------------------------------

Hello friends, May from the Gray Studio has designed and prototyped a premium acrylic switch lubing station. The lubing station has been optimized a few iterations and prototyped to work very nicely with various switches.

We will consider holding a GB on Graystudio.club soon if there is enough interest. Thank you very much for your attention. The cost will be a bit higher than 3D-printed ones but affordable.

I will still be focusing on keyboards. And for these peripheral items' GB, they will not take that long to produce and fulfill as keyboards, and therefore I have assigned May to take care of them. And for such small items, I will not be posting a separate GB post on Geekhack, but will announce it here in the IC page and my Instagram page for GBs or sales. Thank you all.

Appears most 3D-printed ones are $25 to $30+shipping. This one is CNC milled; it is high quality and has multiple parts. And we also made special packaging for it to make sure it is safe during transportation. Cost is high, so GB price will be a little bit more expensive than 3D printed ones, but won't exceed $35 (with all fees included, excludes shipping). I will try to keep shipping cost low as well with EMS.

Thanks! We haven't designed a switch opener yet - maybe something to consider but there are quite a few good ones out there already.

But we will include a couple of brushes for ya.

+1. Would really like to see it made for 70 switches. Getting in a groove and then needing to come back for 10 switches is a bit inconvenient.

Also interested, particularly at support for  70-75 (split backspace and spacebar guy here)
Also, is 10mm sufficient to keep the pins from poking through? Don't have calipers on hand to check

Plan to keep the item price <=35, at least for the first GB. Will have more details on the shipping cost soon. Keeping the form factor smaller so the shipping cost will be low.

Looks fire! Will there be a bigger version (more switch seats) and possibly other colorways? Switch opener and other keyboard tools would also be nice! Will be great as a "kit" - with a Gray Studio touch!

There are a couple of questions about whether 10mm provides enough clearance for the pins. Yes, just sharing a pic showing that below.

Also, the "60 Switches" Printing will be changed to "Switch Lubing Station"

It could be both. CNC doesnít necessarily mean milled. Laser cutters are also CNC, just like water jet cutters, CNC lathes, and a bunch of other stuff.
