Tried to get in on the group buy, but my selections are all OOS? Am I doing something wrong?

Ordered! Bought 2 to make the shipping more worth while! Great prices!

Are you selecting "Assembly?" You shouldn't select assembly. You're gonna have to build it yourself.

Quick update, the assembly slots have all been sold. They filled up a little faster than expected and we even went over the planned limit by a good amount. This isn't a particularly challenging build, but we will be streaming a couple of builds before the GB ends. It will also serve as a Q&A to answer any questions you might have. We will announce it in advance here and on the Discord server as well.

The site is a touch misleading/confusing with regards to the LEDs.

You're given an option to choose the type of leds with the kit but there's also LED's listed under "Add-ons" and not "Extras".
The "Extras" section indicates that parts listed are already included in the kit. The "Add-ons" section does not.

So it gives the impression that LEDs may or may not be included with the kit.

I assume they are because you select it from the dropdown with the kit, but it might be a good thing to clarify.

You are absolutely correct. Thank you for pointing that out, I will make the change right away.

dang i guess i saw the GB too late and missed out on the assembled kit. :(   Any chance there may be more released at some points?

I don't have an iron and last time i soldered was like 15+ years ago to questionable results lol

I grabbed two of them, One black and one white + an extra knob. This will be my first solder project and I'm very excited  ;D

On the group buy page for this on MechWild, there is an option to add Pro Micro Sockets and Pro Micro Socketing Pins to my order. What would these do for the Murphpad? Do I need it? Sorry, I'm pretty new to custom keyboards, and this would be my first time assembling anything like this. Thank you in advance!

You don't need those, unless you want to make the pro-micro hot swappable. You solder the socketing pins to the pro-micro and the sockets to the pcb. Then the pro-micro can be removed or socketed into the pcb just by applying pressure.

This link explains the process clearly https://docs.splitkb.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011263059-How-do-I-socket-a-microcontroller-


Meanwhile, this link explains the reasoning to do it

why not putting the screen on the bottom side so it is more visible instead of putting it  behind the knob?

Probably so you can use the keys down there with your thumb?

that makes sense, but the knob could be in the way.. I have a bdn9 and the knob is really high, is there somewhere the height of this numpad when built?

edit: last thing, if I purchase a battery, is there some sort of reserved space and suggested battery size? or I'm on my own if I need to slot a battery?

Most nice!nano sellers carry the 301230 battery as it fits between the controller and the PCB.

Hello! Just want to ask if the OLED space on the top plate will be reduced in the final product?

Love that it's mirrorable, how likely are the 3DP cases?

Any chance there's a way to get one of these if you weren't part of the GB? Found out about it too late and these look KILLER :(

We'll have plenty of extras that'll be posted shortly after the MurphPad GB units ship.

Any expectation of roughly when extras may be available / what’s the best way to hear about them? I missed the GB, but I *NEED* this.

Just completed my kit last night, it's freaking awesome!

I'm curious, what was the intention with adding the 3 function buttons on the underside of the PCB?
