I like the idea behind "Integrated." I think it could be a really cool GON-esque design.
QFR (62g blacks) | MJ2 TKL | Realforce 87U | G81-3000 "Schumiboard" | Varmilo Bulgogiboard (Keycon 104) | KBD75 (MX silent blacks) | MIRA (soon!)

ahh, thanks puddsy. can always count on your snarky informitism

I try to make everything affordable but that isn't possible with something like the FJELL.

I'd say under $180 for now.

I'm all in for the FJELL HHKB if it ever happens. The FJELL as it is will be used for a project that can easily be adapted and even more suited toward the HHKB style case, since my aesthetic goal is for an HHKB layout with high pro key caps (Alps, of course). I'd be overjoyed to own the HHKB version.

If that happens, I'd probably pass the original FJELL to someone who really wanted one and take the HHKB version if it proved to be more suitable for my idea.

That said, all of your case designs have nice concepts, Leandre. Your "modular" project is something that I'm keeping my ears perked for too. :)

I wanted to do the FJELL in a HHKB style, but LeandreN hinted he had a project in the works for HHKB layout but I didn't expect it to be a FJELL as well. I'm pinning my eyes to this tread.

Hey LeandreN! Will the HHKB be a two part case, with the plate being top mount?

So excited. I really like the Simple one as well, will that have a brass weight too?

Yes the case will be top mounted :)

Glad you like the simple case, to keep the price down, I don't think it will have a weight, however, if that is something people really want, I can work on adding it.

I see you like tray cases LeandreN. You should totally make blockers for your tray mount cases so people can also use hhkb or wkl layout  :thumb:

Examples of what I mean: 1u ones Underside

I generally concentrate on the stop light. When that **** turns green its mother****ing Nürburgring time.

I need blockers so bad, its near impossible to get it right now. Someone should reverse engineer and reproduce it, and make it available to everyone, immediately...

Honestly, that would be a reason for me to go back to a Topre board. I used to have a Novatouch, which was okay, but the upstroke clack was too annoying. Then there was a meetup, where I could try the FC660C and the HHKB 2 (Pro and S), which felt much better. I really dislike the FC660C with the odd design choice for those 2 extra keys on the right side, but the Type S was very pleasant to type on.

Do you already have a rough estimate on how heavy one of these cases are going to be?

Really like the Simple.

Is it going to be possible to actually buy one, or is it going to be another raffle?

Hey All,

I am doing my first build (Very Exciting). I purchased a Banana Split 60 PCB. Im looking for a 60% Case and love the FJELL Black case.

Are you releasing more of these cases soon or have I missed the boat?
