[IC] GSKT-00
« on: Mon, 06 January 2020, 18:49:17 »
GSKT-00

The first in the GSKT series. Gasket mounted, 6063 aluminum.





Introduction

Some of you may know me or know about this board, but for those who don't, I'm Weaston and this is the GSKT-00. I originally made this board around a year and half ago and it was a small private group buy for some friends. After all the time that we have spent with the board, it has become a mainstay on many desks. For this I am extremely grateful and proud, that people use a keyboard I made and enjoy it so much that it got to the top of their rotation. Ever since pictures and videos of the 00 began to surface, I have gotten many pms asking about the future of the board. Now that it has had enough time to really be tested and approved, it feels like it's time that I open up a public sale.

Some of you may have heard rumors about why I only wanted to sell them privately or about me not wanting people to share pictures of the internals. Keeping all this quiet was an attempt to just let the board exist without any hype or expectations around it. I wanted the people who had them to get to use it as honestly as they could so I could gather feedback over a long amount of time. So with that, I now feel comfortable selling them here, and I hope you enjoy the 00 just as much as me and my friends have. My personal favorite setup for it is a half plate with 62-67g linears, it really hits a sweet spot with the compression of the gasket, the flex and the sound.

The GSKT-00 comes in Silver, Gray, Black or Red.

Minimum 50 units, 200 unit maximum with 2 cases per person, 4 plates per person and 4 pcbs per person.

All components are priced separately, this is done to better inventory parts per order. Each case comes with 1 gasket and 1 sets of screws. Additional gaskets are $10 each and additional screws are $5 each.

I would like to start the GB as soon as possible. Shooting for January 20th as the opening date.  I don't know the GH process and if I need to get approval for a GB thread or what, so trying to give some buffer time.

More info about GB details will be outlined in the GB thread, but I included final pricing below.

Notes to consider

The 00 had very specific internals which made the usage of larger screws not possible (in it's current design at least) so it uses M2 screws for assembly. They are hex head and stainless steel but please be warned if you have a fear of small screws or cases that use them as you will need to be gentle and careful. The USB port also is fairly tight and has a bit more than the usual depth that other boards have. Most cables will work but those with large heads will not. Personally I know that Mechcables and Yarbo work, and so will anything that doesn't have an oversized head like a Lindy. Any standard "custom" cable with the heatshrinked head should be perfectly fine. I have not tested this thoroughly as I am not a cable connoisseur so I make no guarantees here, but you have been warned.

The 00 also does NOT support 6.25U bottom row, it is 7U only. This was done as preference on my part as I typically use 60% boards in WKL or HHKB layouts and I far prefer 7U spacebars.

Supported layouts below.  MX plates are universal caps lock (all 3 positions), split right shift and split backspace.  Non-splits are still supported by the plate.  ANSI Enter only unless you opt for an ISO plate which is ISO Enter only and split left shift also.  You will have your choice of layout on the GB order form.

The original units did not have bumpon cuts on the bottom, but they have been added to these units for ease of use.

Cerakoting is an optional service that can be done as part of the GB. Please be ready to wait at least an additional 3 weeks of time after the initial ship date for this service to be complete and have units ready for shipping. Colors on a board will differ slightly from photos online, so please pick your color carefully. There will be no refunds or free re-coating if you do not like the color.

Pricing

- Case: $225

- Plate: $25 Half - $30 Full

  - Materials: Aluminum (Silver, Gray, Black, Red), Stainless Steel (Brushed), POM (black transparent, expect slight warping), Acrylic (Clear), Polycarbonate (Frosted)

- PCB: $25

- Shipping: $25 CONUS - $45 International

- Cerakote (any non-custom color): $50

This is probably going to sell out instantly. Hopefully I get one of the 200 units. Impressively low price as well. Good luck with the GB.

Edit: would you consider making the plate file available for modification? I'm one of those weirdos who actually likes 6.25 on 60%.

Aw man I thought I put the link in the body, must have missed it.

You can get any H Series coating, that's the standard Cerakote.  Check them all out on the official site: https://www.cerakote.com/finishes/?tab=coatings&cat=HSERIES

It's cerakote so the feeling and color reflection will definitely be much more matte than ano, but it doesn't affect fitment because it's super thin.  The aluminum I use also takes really well to it, so there should be little to no inconsistencies in it.

FCFS, raffles are too complicated.  If the 200 fill too quickly I may open it up a bit more, not much though.  We'll have to wait and see  :thumb:
