There was an announcement earlier today on the discord that said: "Minor update: Quotation received :slight_smile: Crunching numbers up next!"

You probably all ready know, but the majority of IC's post updates 1st, and more frequently on their discord. (probably becasue GH has stupid, childish, rules, and just kind of sucks)

Hi all!

Sorry for the lack of updates here in the geekhack thread. I tend to update my discord channel more frequently :)

We have had a few delays regarding quotations from factories etc, but we have a final price now.

Prices for R1 raffle tomorrow are as follows:
Eclipse kit with WKL/Standard top, Solderable PCB, PC plate, Brass weight - 390 included VAT and shipping
Extra PCB: 45
Extra PC plate: 35
Extra brass plate: 41
Extra POM plate: 35
Optional SS Weight (Mirror polished): 65

Colors:
Dark grey
Green
Lilac
E-White



Raffle will be held through mykeyboard's new raffle system and I will post a link as soon as I have it.
 
Just to have it said as a disclaimer: There may be a delay for the raffle, just due to the fact that the raffle system is fresh and we gathered all the details a little bit late.

Post any additional questions here (I have most likely missed stuff) or in my discord server, and I will post an FAQ later today.


I am setting up a GB page today.

UPDATE:

Things got a little bit out of hand here and to give myself and you all a little bit more time, the raffle will be pushed to the 31st! A nice clean date.

New raffle date: 31.05.2021

So sorry about the confusion and let me know if you have any concerns/questions :)

Hi all!

Mykeyboard is still working on testing the raffle system we will be using, but I'm hoping to open the raffle at 18:00 CEST!

If not, I will post a new date and time here and in my discord channel. You will not miss the raffle if you are interested in this board and follow this thread and/or are in my discord channel.

It will be open for 24 hrs at least so there should be good enough time for everyone who are interested, to join it  :)

I will post the link and info about the raffle here as soon as I have it! It will also be posted in my discord channel, my instagram and on mykeyboard's instagram.

I've posted a proper GB thread but it's still on hold until a moderator approves it :rolleyes:

Again, 150 units will be raffled, worldwide :)

Any questions, feel free to reach out to me here or in my discord :)

just wanted to compliment you. finally a nice looking board in EU.. and someone like me that uses ANSI hahaha..
i like the layout it's something diff something i don't see everywhere.. i like that it's going to be happening on mykeyboard.eu

i think i'm a bit late to the party and i still need to read all the comments.. chocked me when i saw 12 pages hahaha..
i also think that more space between the arrow cluster .. i mean the sides are thicker. The design of the board is all about THICK nice sexy clean design.
At least that's what i see. i don't know if you made a render of how thick you can get that part .. need to read all the history.

Greetings from The Netherlands..

Thank you so much for your comment! It seems you got the right idea about this! I get some comments about the sides and the top, and understandably so. It's a board dedicated to thick sides and the classic look of the asymmetric thicker top. As well as splurging with the extra space to the side, for the nav cluster. It's not exactly a space saving design, despite it being limited by the missing function keys. It's not a board for everyone. So I'm hopefully left with the ones who this board is perfect for  :)

Thanks again!
