Title: [GB] J-02 60% GB 100% Complete - All GB Boards Shipped
Post by: Jae-3soteric on Fri, 31 January 2020, 17:21:07
UPDATE 10/10/2020

Hey folks, Wanted to make a quick announcement on the J-02 GB - There is both good news, and meh news to share...

Lets start with the good news:
All manufacturing has been finished and all vendors have the boards in transit to them! Some vendors already have them on hand (MyKeyboard have their allocation of Standard Editions on hand, and I have the Limited Edition ones I sold on hand. iLumKB and Upas have their boards on the way and should arrive within the next few weeks.

The 'Meh' news:
All Black and LE boards have been manufactured to spec. The Grey boards have been produced in a lighter shade of grey than we requested. I worked with the manu to adapt a colour to the grey prototype shown in pictures and on streams etc (same grey as the Lodestone base, J-01 base, and the J-02 Prototype). The manufacturer is not willing to refinish these boards (This is due to the fact that re-finishing can have a significant and detrimental impact on quality of the final finish of the aluminium parts), and has sent them to the vendors despite Upas trying his best to get them to resolve prior to shipping. You can see a picture below comparing the prototype finish top compared to the production board.

What does this mean?
Firstly - dont fear! We have some options and have taken some actions already.
All of the vendors have agreed to purchase additional units to be made in the correct Grey and Upas has arranged this with the manufacturer. This gives all grey J-02 buyers a choice. Either take the grey boards as they have been produced in the lighter grey shipping asap, OR, wait for the correct grey boards to be produced (targeting January as a manufacturing date). Each of the vendors will issue a form to their Grey J-02 customers so they can make an informed choice.
The boards that are left over of either the light grey or the correct grey will then be sold as extras at the vendors discretion.

I know this is not what people expected, and I am really sorry to have to share this news. The lighter grey actually looks spectacular, but its not the colour I envisioned and as such I offer my humblest apologies for any buyer affected. If anyone wants to discuss this with me - my DM's are open, although I cannot discuss Orders individually - these will need to be taken up with your vendor.


TL/DR:
Grey boards made in too light of a Grey - Manufacturer won't replace/re-finish
Black and LE boards unaffected
Grey boards being re-manufactured in the correct colour
All Grey J-02 customers will have a choice - receive the lighter grey asap, or wait and get the darker grey

--------------------------------------------

Hello everybody

This is the Group Buy for my second board, the J-02. A fully featured 60% with Brass internal weighting, removable pen rail, full isolation mount design, carbon fibre plate and with a USB-C daughterboard.

After the success in proving the execution of my first board (the J-01; more info and pics/videos HERE  (https://imgur.com/a/GmAf5lN)and a build stream HERE  (https://youtu.be/nuT5dkOWwVY)), I wanted to do something a little less extreme from a layout perspective and that was more accessible both in terms of layout options and availability.

Yes thatís currently the plan due to proximity. If youíd rather ship from the EU you can buy the standard edition on MyKeyboard.EU, or specify on the Limited Edition form

I'm really glad we added it. The original IC didnt show much interest for it, but the sense check a couple of weeks ago showed it was highly popular.

Iíve been using my j01 almost exclusively since i built it 2 months ago and I am quite excited to add a 60% j series to the rotation. The sound, feel, looks, design, and pure sex appeal of the j series makes it a MUST have. Amazing board by an amazing designer and person.

Germany should fill out the EU/US form - assuming you win an LE slot it would ship from the UK.

Standard edition for Germany will be on Mykeyboard.EU shipping from the EU directly

Thank you to everyone that entered for the Limited Edition spots.

We had over 380 responses for the Eu/US and over 120 for Asia (over 500 in total!!!)

The draw will take place later today as I and the vendors work through the detail and will be announced around 10pm GMT on 4th Feb (today). Currently Iím talking with the vendors about the demand and removing a small number duplicates (not counted in the above numbers))

Thanks again for all your support and I look forwards to the Standard Edition on the 8th February - reminder itís a 10am EST launch on Cannon Keys, MyKeyboard.eu and ilumkb!

Hi folks,

This post is to announce the EU/US winners of the Limited Edition J-02. Asia winners will be announced tomorrow as @iLouis_07 | iLumkb.com  is asleep :D

We had over 500 entries across the EU/US and Asia forms - way more demand than I anticipated. With this in mind we have made a slight change to the number of LE units avail:

EU / US has increased from 15 units to 20 Units
Asia has increased from 5 Units to 10 Units

This decision was made due to the volume of demand.



EU / US J-02 Limited Edition winners were selected using an online random list picker, and are as follows:

Lunr - Geekhack
Cedric#1852 - Discord
Fu362 - Geekhack
Morgan3wheeler - Reddit
Skewed#4033 - Discord

Congrats to all winners!!

Upas and I will be reaching out with invoices in the next day or so. Asia winners announced tomorrow

Sorry to all those that missed out - the Standard Edition goes on sale @ https://cannonkeys.com/, https://ilumkb.com/ and https://mykeyboard.eu/ on the 8th February at 10am EST - hope to see you there!!!

Apologies if this has been already posted but are there comparison images between black and space grey? The color shown on CannonKeys is what I'm leaning towards which I'm guessing is black?  While it looks great, I would not mind it if it was somewhat lighter, kind of like how Apple does it which is kind of what I'm hoping space grey is.

Ah ok so the silver looking one is space gray I'm assuming. Gotcha! Black it is!  ...well..hmmm... I'll make up my mind at some point.

Us and Asia sold out very quickly (2 mins for all 100 in USA)

EU was expected to take a little longer and did as you couldnít complete checkout unless you had an EU address. If that had been open I suspect they would have sold just as fast as US

Post by: hkiri on Sun, 09 February 2020, 05:35:20
Damn, all of the Asia and US boards have been sold. Good thing im in EU. Not getting in on this would`ve broken my heart.


Us and Asia sold out very quickly (2 mins for all 100 in USA)

EU was expected to take a little longer and did as you couldnít complete checkout unless you had an EU address. If that had been open I suspect they would have sold just as fast as US

Really glad we (EU) had our own stock that was basically untouchable for outsiders. It's always so hard for FCFS GBs with a single source when you have to compete with the huge keeb community in the US. Would be great if this is something we will see more often in the future. And not for EU only, just region locked stocks at regional vendors in general.

Only with custom PCB and custom plate. Neither the PCB (https://imgur.com/bKxVdwR.png) nor the plates (ISO (https://imgur.com/TVXPLm8.png), ANSI (https://imgur.com/40ITWe8.png)).

But why don't you use mod_tap?

right Shift: RSFT_T(KC_UP)
right Win: RGUI_T(KC_LEFT)
right Menu/Fn: LT(1, KC_DOWN)
right Ctrl: RCTL_T(KC_RGHT)

Pressing right Shift/Win/Fn/Ctrl alone will act as pressing up/left/down/right arrow, pressing right Shift/Win/Fn/Ctrl with another key will act as Shift/Win/Fn/Ctrl modifier.

Will the vendors reach out and ask about color and layout? There was no option while ordering. (mykeyboad n my case)

That's a good workaround tho, but some time I just need to press left/right for long. emm like while watching video?
thx for ur suggestion anyway

Press right Ctrl, release right Ctrl (the keyboard will send a single Right keydown event), press right Ctrl immediately again and keep it down, and your keyboard will send Right keydown events continuously until you release the key.

For those interested here is the build stream of the J-02 Production Sample, this is the first board off the production line with some QoL improvements to the original prototyped design.

ChangeLog as follows:

Awesome design Jae, the plate pressing cleanly into those gaskets looks so so satisfying. Sounds excellent too  :thumb:

Any updates?

Currently in manufacturing. We made some tweaks I covered on stream and wanted to be 100% certain first. Upas from Cannon Keys is in constant coordination with the factory. Due to Covid etc we are looking like September currently. Upas posts regular updates on his site and discord as do I if you want to track updates more frequently. Or just tag me here. Always happy to post the latest

Title: Re: [GB] J-02 60% GB Done - Shipping to Vendors + UPDATE
Post by: Jae-3soteric on Sat, 10 October 2020, 05:51:31
Hey folks, Wanted to make a quick announcement on the J-02 GB - There is both good news, and meh news to share...

Lets start with the good news:
All manufacturing has been finished and all vendors have the boards in transit to them! Some vendors already have them on hand (MyKeyboard have their allocation of Standard Editions on hand, and I have the Limited Edition ones I sold on hand. iLumKB and Upas have their boards on the way and should arrive within the next few weeks.

The 'Meh' news:
All Black and LE boards have been manufactured to spec. The Grey boards have been produced in a lighter shade of grey than we requested. I worked with the manu to adapt a colour to the grey prototype shown in pictures and on streams etc (same grey as the Lodestone base, J-01 base, and the J-02 Prototype). The manufacturer is not willing to refinish these boards (This is due to the fact that re-finishing can have a significant and detrimental impact on quality of the final finish of the aluminium parts), and has sent them to the vendors despite Upas trying his best to get them to resolve prior to shipping. You can see a picture below comparing the prototype finish top compared to the production board.

What does this mean?
Firstly - dont fear! We have some options and have taken some actions already.
All of the vendors have agreed to purchase additional units to be made in the correct Grey and Upas has arranged this with the manufacturer. This gives all grey J-02 buyers a choice. Either take the grey boards as they have been produced in the lighter grey shipping asap, OR, wait for the correct grey boards to be produced (targeting January as a manufacturing date). Each of the vendors will issue a form to their Grey J-02 customers so they can make an informed choice.
The boards that are left over of either the light grey or the correct grey will then be sold as extras at the vendors discretion.

I know this is not what people expected, and I am really sorry to have to share this news. The lighter grey actually looks spectacular, but its not the colour I envisioned and as such I offer my humblest apologies for any buyer affected. If anyone wants to discuss this with me - my DM's are open, although I cannot discuss Orders individually - these will need to be taken up with your vendor.


TL/DR:
Grey boards made in too light of a Grey - Manufacturer won't replace/re-finish
Black and LE boards unaffected
Grey boards being re-manufactured in the correct colour
All Grey J-02 customers will have a choice - receive the lighter grey asap, or wait and get the darker grey


Edit:

I'm not effected, but big props for handling it like this. Gives me confidence in future GB by your team! :thumb:

Glad to see a lot of the bards going out, with build streams, pics etc!!

Just a quick Update as well:

Thread wont be closed until after the replacement Grey boards have been manufactured and shipped -  this is well underway, and vendors will keep their buyers informed.

I've been asked a lot in the past week if there will be an R2 - the answer is not any time soon - vendors still need to resolve the grey units and sell the extras. That being said I have started to consider taking commissions, and one colourway is already in development.

I might've missed this but where exactly does one inquire about commissions and commission pricing? Thanks

Not sure if they are still taking commissions but it's worth a shot!
