Looks amazing Max! Been following this project from way back in MechCult, happy to see it reach proto phase.
Definitely in for an upcoming GB!

I really like what I'm seeing so far. I agree that you might need to change the XXXX on the brass weight but other than that.. good job! This mounting style seems very interesting so I'm once it goes to GB!

Thx a lot!  GB will start later.  I think in one or two weeks.

Wow. If you are planning to start a GB in two weeks, even if it starts in a month, i believe that everything is finalized already.
But i'll ask my questions anyway=)

1. Do you have plans on suggesting PC wrist rest to match keyboard? Front edge seems to be quite high and such add-on would be nice to see.
2. Are you sure that you don't want to suggest a half plate as an add-on? I mean your plate support standard PCBs and there is enough room between PCB and the bottom of the case. I think combining half plate and something like wilba's weirdflex or plain-flex-60 can give quite nice result.
Or at least have you think about taking commissions on a half plate?

Thank you for your feedback.
I will answer your questions:

1) Wrist rest is not planned. The keyboard is not high.

2) Yes I am sure. The keyboard is not designed with flex. The distance between the PCB and the bottom is too small. This distance will prevent flex the PCB.

The keyboard supports WT60-D, Plain 60, etc and Instant 60, but only tsangan layout.

Yeah, i also totaly forgot that usb cutout seems to be very tight so any flex is no good.
Do you mind sharing some specs? Front height and weight(built or not).

4mm POM? That is awesome. Is there anywhere online to get some 4mm plates lasered? I like the sound, but hate the flex.

Plates are CNC machined, not laser-cut, because thick plates should have notches for proper switch installation.
4mm POM plate has literally no flex whatsoever, but if you REALLY want more solid experience, I am offering 4mm Brass as extra option ;)

 :rolleyes: It is a great pity that there is no ISO support, I would definitely have been in!

Anyway GLWGB!
