Title: [IC] zekk.works Ogre -- Seamless Gasket 60% - Raffle on July 4th!
Post by: zekkin on Mon, 18 May 2020, 20:29:33
Hello all,

I'm zekkin -- I've been around for, wow, about six years now, with only the last two being spent diving into keyboard design. Until now I've mostly kept to posting my work on the MechKeys Discord server (pretty much exclusively in #kb-kustoms), my Instagram (https://instagram.com/zekk.works), and in various smaller Discord servers amongst close friends. I have a few keyboards that are in the wild, none being from a public group buy, at least in the sense that it was posted here, on Geekhack.

During those two years I only ever designed things with sandwich or top mount and wanted to try something different. I was not too pleased with the general public's aversion to reveal the "secrets" of the fabled OTD 356mini (despite there being very high resolution images of the board available), so I decided to make something that should, in theory, replicate the mounting style, but mixed with my own aesthetic flavor.

Anyway, here's Ogre.

Raffle Information (Dates! Pricing!):

More


Group buy slots will be allocated based on the results of a raffle. There will be two separate 5 minute entry windows to account for different time zones; one in the morning (Eastern), and one in the evening (Eastern).

The link to the raffle form will be posted in the first post of the GB thread just a few minutes prior to opening and will close immediately after the 5 minutes have lapsed; the same process will repeat for the evening window.

Date: July 4, 2020

Window 1:

   July 4, 2020 @ 10AM Eastern
   https://everytimezone.com/s/aeec084b (https://everytimezone.com/s/aeec084b)

Window 2:

   July 4, 2020 @ 10PM Eastern
   https://everytimezone.com/s/7d004761 (https://everytimezone.com/s/7d004761)

-----

Layout and Color Choices:

   You will be able to choose from Red, Dark Gray, Black, or Silver anodizing colors. There is only one top piece available -- there is no WKL or HHKB available in this group buy.

Entry Process:

   Everyone will be permitted to enter in the raffle once -- please choose one entry window. Due to the potential for multiple entries, I will be going through them with a focus on weeding them out. Discovery will result in disqualification from this and future zekk.works group buys.

   Your desired configuration (color, plate choice, etc.) will be determined from the choices you make in the entry form, so please make your choices carefully.

   During entry, please use the email you use most for communications.

Raffle Results:

   The 35 raffle winners will be chosen on the morning (Eastern US time) of July 5, 2020 and winners will be notified shortly after. Notification of winning the raffle will come in the form of an email from support@zekk.works as well as an invoice from my Shopify storefront. Notification of not securing a spot in this GB will be sent from support@zekk.works.

   Completion of the raffle will also be noted in the Geekhack group buy thread.

Order Changes and Payment:

   You will have 48 hours from the time of invoice receipt to make appropriate changes and pay for your slot. If, after 48 hours, an invoice remains unpaid, the slot will be re-raffled and allocated to a new winner*. This new winner will have the full 48 hours to make any changes and pay for their slot. Should there be a second instance of non-payment, the slot will not be re-raffled but held by me to sell after GB units have been fulfilled.

   As a very serious reminder, PayPal will not be accepted as a valid form of payment.

   All order changes or inquiries must be sent to support@zekk.works, no order changes or support questions will be answered via Discord or Geekhack PM.

Pricing:

   $400

   Kit Breakdown:

      - 1x Top
      - 1x Bottom
      - 1x Plate
      - 1x PCB
      - 1x O-ring
      - 1x Daughterboard
      - 1x Daughterboard cable

   With the choice of:

      - 1x extra plate (red/silver full aluminum OR half polycarbonate, +$45)
      - 1x extra PCB (+$40)
      - 1x extra o-ring (+$5)

Shipping:

   Shipping invoices will be calculated and sent at the time of shipment and no shipping costs will be included in the initial invoice.

   All domestic, US-based addresses will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail, with signature confirmation, with no exceptions.

   All international orders will be shipped via DHL Express, with no exceptions. The customer will be responsible for all shipping costs, including import fees.

Q&A

Q: Will you change something small to fit my niche needs?
A: Never.

Q: Will you offer something custom like a color or layout?
A: No. What you see is what you get.

Q: Will you consider increasing the quantity?
A: Nope. I'm one person with a full time job. It's like you people really want to end up in a perpetual group buy with no delivered product.

Q: Will there be extra keyboard kits?
A: Nope.

Q: Why do you limit extra add-ons?
A: It will make things easier for me in the long run if I can keep the packing process as streamlined as possible.

Questions answered or tangentially addressed in this Q&A will not be answered or commented on in this thread.

---

Thanks for checking this out, I'm looking forward to both your interest and criticism. Hopefully I can bring you guys a nice keyboard.

Feel free to post any questions here or send them to me on Discord (zekkin#0001) and I'll answer you as best I can as soon as possible.

Gotcha. Well. Gasket mount provides you with a softer bottom out and more consistent sound. Half plate adds to the flexy / soft bottom out even further, and obviously changes the sound since the alphas are pcb mounted. That being said, Iíve never used a mini or gskt. So closest thing Iíve felt to this is a Unikorn. And itís the best (Mx) typing experience Iíve had.

Thank you for the answer! Why is it a better experience vs a PCB mount with no plate? Wouldn't the plate make for a very uneven typing experience between alphas and nums/mods? Is that part of the appeal? I'm really tempted to join, but it's hard to know if this is for me when every similar board had been ultra exclusive. Oh well, since this is apparently 35 units FCFS, I'm probably gonna miss out anyways because I won't be able to fill out the form fast enough with my slow ass 40 wpm haha. Props to zekk for this great looking board!

experience is an interesting thing -- we can only describe it with other experiences, which are, by their very nature, different from person to person.

personally, the variation between the alphas and mods on a half plate is a non-issue -- most of the time i'm on alphas, and i'm sure you are as well. if you're concerned about that, go with a full plate as that will maintain a similar level of rigidity across the entire plate.

as far as exclusivity goes, it is not my intention to create a hype machine and drive up aftermarket prices due to scarcity, i'm just one guy in a relatively small NYC apartment trying to share my designs with a limited number of people so that i don't end up in the same situation as some folks who will remain unnamed.

please do not let FCFS discourage you -- i can guarantee everyone will be tripped up enough to make it a much more even race  :cool:

i noticed on the proto that the spacing of the gasket posts (for lack of a better term) is wider on the south side of the case than the north side. is there a specific reason for this or is it just for aesthetic purposes? my thinking was that it could soften esc/backspace but not sure if that was the intended goal or not

hm, i didn't do it on purpose, i tried to pick mounting points that made sense without much thought about how it would/could affect sound.

anyway, i'm just waiting on a PCB to make sure everything assembles properly and then we'll get the show on the road. i'm hoping to get started before we get to July!

On the fence. I've never had any luck with Raffles, but FCFS benefits folks in timezone with free time and a fast internet connection.

Quantity is quite limited, so I think FCFS is a small target. A 24-48hr raffle might be the most equitable.

Hi all, thanks for being patient. Here are the raffle details:
 
---
 
Raffle Timing:
 
There will be two separate 10 minute entry windows on July 4, 2020 to account for different timezones; one in the morning (Eastern), and one in the evening (Eastern).
 
Layout and Color Choices:
 
You will be able to choose from Red, Dark Gray, Black, or Silver anodizing colors. There is only one top piece available -- there is no WKL or HHKB available in this group buy.
 
Entry Process:
 
Everyone will be permitted to enter in the raffle once -- please choose one entry window. Due to the potential for multiple entries, I will be going through them with a focus on weeding them out. Discovery of multiple entries will result in disqualification from this and future zekk.works group buys.
 
Your desired configuration (color, plate choice, etc.) will be determined from the choices you make in the entry form, so please make your choices carefully.
 
During entry, please use the email you use most for communications/purchasing keyboard things.
 
Raffle Results:
 
The 35 raffle winners will be chosen on the morning (Eastern US time) of July 5, 2020 and winners will be notified shortly after. Notification of winning the raffle will come in the form of an email as well as an invoice from my Shopify storefront.
 
Completion of the raffle will also be noted in the Geekhack group buy thread.
 
Order Changes and Payment:
 
You will have 48 hours from the time of invoice receipt to make appropriate changes and pay for your slot. If, after 48 hours, an invoice remains unpaid, the slot will be re-raffled and allocated to a new winner. This new winner will have the full 48 hours to make any changes and pay for their slot. Should there be a second instance of non-payment, the slot will not be re-raffled but held by me to sell as an extra after GB units have been fulfilled. PayPal will not be accepted as a valid form of payment.

Hope all of this makes sense. Prices and exact timing of the raffle will come very soon.

Excited for the raffle. Will both time slots be put into the same raffle or are half of the boards raffled during each time slot?

not too random -- as the PCB is from hiney i'm going to guess it will end up being matte black. thickness will be 1.6mm.

Sorry if this is a silly question as I don't have much experience on GH, but for the 10 minute window entry at what time would that be for PDT? Say morning time?

The windows for entry for the Pacific timezone will be 3 hours earlier than the listed time zone, Eastern, which was specified in my details post above.

A small piece of advice for someone who is new to Geekhack: please, please, please, for the love of whatever higher being you believe in, read.

Thanks again to everyone being patient and bearing with me as I work through the details of the raffle.

Without further ado...here's the information you've all been waiting for (with a repeat of all the stuff I had in my last post just in case people don't want to read back):

---

Group buy slots will be allocated based on the results of a raffle. There will be two separate 5 minute entry windows to account for different time zones; one in the morning (Eastern), and one in the evening (Eastern).

The link to the raffle form will be posted in the first post of the GB thread just a few minutes prior to opening and will close immediately after the 5 minutes have lapsed; the same process will repeat for the evening window.

Date: July 4, 2020

Window 1:

   July 4, 2020 @ 10AM Eastern
   https://everytimezone.com/s/aeec084b (https://everytimezone.com/s/aeec084b)

Window 2:

   July 4, 2020 @ 10PM Eastern
   https://everytimezone.com/s/7d004761 (https://everytimezone.com/s/7d004761)

-----

Layout and Color Choices:

   You will be able to choose from Red, Dark Gray, Black, or Silver anodizing colors. There is only one top piece available -- there is no WKL or HHKB available in this group buy.

Entry Process:

   Everyone will be permitted to enter in the raffle once -- please choose one entry window. Due to the potential for multiple entries, I will be going through them with a focus on weeding them out. Discovery will result in disqualification from this and future zekk.works group buys.

   Your desired configuration (color, plate choice, etc.) will be determined from the choices you make in the entry form, so please make your choices carefully.

   During entry, please use the email you use most for communications.

Raffle Results:

   The 35 raffle winners will be chosen on the morning (Eastern US time) of July 5, 2020 and winners will be notified shortly after. Notification of winning the raffle will come in the form of an email from support@zekk.works as well as an invoice from my Shopify storefront. Notification of not securing a spot in this GB will be sent from support@zekk.works.

   Completion of the raffle will also be noted in the Geekhack group buy thread.

Order Changes and Payment:

   You will have 48 hours from the time of invoice receipt to make appropriate changes and pay for your slot. If, after 48 hours, an invoice remains unpaid, the slot will be re-raffled and allocated to a new winner*. This new winner will have the full 48 hours to make any changes and pay for their slot. Should there be a second instance of non-payment, the slot will not be re-raffled but held by me to sell after GB units have been fulfilled.

   As a very serious reminder, PayPal will not be accepted as a valid form of payment.

   All order changes or inquiries must be sent to support@zekk.works, no order changes or support questions will be answered via Discord or Geekhack PM.

Pricing:

   $400

   Kit Breakdown:

      - 1x Top
      - 1x Bottom
      - 1x Plate
      - 1x PCB
      - 1x O-ring
      - 1x Daughterboard

   With the choice of:

      - 1x extra plate (red/silver full aluminum OR half polycarbonate, +$45)
      - 1x extra PCB (+$40)
      - 1x extra o-ring (+$5)

Shipping:

   Shipping invoices will be calculated and sent at the time of shipment and no shipping costs will be included in the initial invoice.

   All domestic, US-based addresses will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail, with signature confirmation, with no exceptions.

   All international orders will be shipped via DHL Express, with no exceptions. The customer will be responsible for all shipping costs, including import fees.

A heads up, for window 2, it says 10PM eastern, but the time in the link seems to be 2 hours off (displays 5PM when it should be 7PM for me).

Can't wait to loose another raffle! Maybe my luck will change and I will win this one. I really want to try a board with this Oring style gasket mounting system and I really like how you have made the case 2 part so that it is sandwiched in instead of just friction fit like the Unikorn. That red looks amazing but I would have to change my whole setup to match so I will probably just play it safe and go with black.
