I have a question,

for those who has ordered the plates before, I'd like to know. Does the red in the red plate look something like this?




I'm looking for a nice bright chilli red kind of thing.

And for the plain silver one, is it a mirrored finish/highly reflective or is it something like this?



Pardon me, it's abit hard for me to figure out from the pictures he posted.

Thanks in advance for your help

no, it's not.   as a plate, it's not necessary to make it as hard anodized.

These look great.  I like the fact that the new design supports universal layout.

How thick are these? 1.5mm?

What SpamRay said.

You can create all kinds of crazy layouts with this plate and a GH60 PCB.  ie true HHKB clone with 1x backspace, 1.75 right space etc.

Bear in mind, this plate doesn't compatible with poker2.
However, it is really good imo for most custom 60% pcb like 38GT, GH60, FaceU/W, ThumbU etc.  :thumb:

I think he was talking about the LEDS near the spacebar on the Poker2 pcb that's why it is not compatible.

I think i see what you mean. It's like how the plates that are used to demo the colours have that round slot near the spacebar stab but this universal one doesn't right?

Any idea if it will work for the KBT pure? I havent had the tools to remove my keycaps to see where the LEDs are though..

Sorry I can't actually answer your question since I don't have a KBT pure but this is a universal plate and base on the switch hole arrangement, it will support it. But then again your problem if there is a LED in place. I am not an expert on this but I guess you could just remove the LED if there is one. Someone correct me if I am wrong though.

Does that mean I won't be able to order anymore? :(

Reason why I'm not able to order is cause I will be changing address within 3 weeks, so depending on when they ship, I might have to change my address before it gets sent out.

Let me know if I should place my order now and change the address midway or if I'm still able to order this in 3 weeks time

I'm just curious, the plate in the 1st picture looks different than the plate in the last picture. Is there any reason for this? which plate are we getting?

By "Universal" does this mean it supports both the poker2 layout and the pure layout? I still can't decide which layout to go with for the gh60.

And if only they had white :/

I think it was said earlier in the thread that this plate design won't fit the Poker2 because the Poker2 uses plate mount stabilizers.

Besides I think the GB is over.

Hmm, im unfamiliar with universal layouts.

From what I understand the stabilizers have to be pcb mounted while the switches are plate mounted?

And since the holes were enlarged to accommodate different layouts, would this have any effect on the stability of the switches that are placed in these locations? (Enter,shift keys etc)

Main question: Should I get PCB mounted or plate mounted switches?

Main question: Should I get PCB mounted or plate mounted switches?

To answer your main question, depends on what your PCB supports. If your pcb supports pcb mounted switches then you can install pcb mounted switches along with this plate for added stability, otherwise just get the plate mounted switches. I have a universal plate which I bought from sprit's GB and I use plate mounted switches on 1x1 keys and pcb mounted switches on larger keys for added support since the holes for those area are too large for the switches. This plate might be different but I'm not sure.

Hmm, im unfamiliar with universal layouts.

From what I understand the stabilizers have to be pcb mounted while the switches are plate mounted?

And since the holes were enlarged to accommodate different layouts, would this have any effect on the stability of the switches that are placed in these locations? (Enter,shift keys etc)

Ok Thanks! I'm planning to use them with the gh60 so PCB mounts shouldn't be a problem. :)
