  • my entire life was unlimited zekk works
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, 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

Window 2:

   July 4, 2020 @ 10PM Eastern
   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.
