How will B-stock Units be handled for people that pay during the group buy phase? Will some people just get unlucky and not get an A-stock unit or will you order extras in case some boards do come with manufacturing defects?

I will be ordering a few extras. With the love tkl I ran, the only B-stock was due to my own fault, so I am not expecting to need to replace any but I will be ordering extras just in case. Any extras will go up for sale after GB boards ship though.

yup. similar to kc mounting except that one side doesnt have a poron gasket. plate will be isolated by plastic tabs. you can change if you want the poron gasket to be on the tabs you put on the top or the bottom in order to change the feel.

How many exactly because the love tkl had a pretty high percentage of B-stock units.

i am not sure exactly right now. maybe a few in each of the colors. packaging will be higher quality this time around to prevent any damage due to shipping. will be denser foam than last time, and will be packaged in a more well fit custom box.

 It might be helpful to share some kind of diagram or render of the mounting system, which I think might be confusing to some people.

What is pp full plate? Itís prolly some sort of plastic but I canít stop laughing.

What do you mean by desk saver? Is it because of the thin bezels and the 0.25u gap between the f row, alphas, and nav cluster? Or is it something else?

Pretty board, good luck with this!

very nice!

Did you have any inspiration from Matrix boards?

- Side profile is very similar to 1.2 OG
- Fixed cable as 2.0 OG
- Rear horizontal weight similar to 2.0 OG

I like it a lot and will be following this closely!

Side profile based on what I liked from older OTD boards, with inspiration from TGR 910 CE to do the parallel cut on the back on the bottom of the board. I prefer the look of fixed cable so that is why I chose that. And the nameplate on the back is inspired by the 8XV2.0.

PP = polypropylene. DK Saver layout as in it is an F13 layout keyboard just like the DK Saver which started it.

Very interested. Fixed cable is the only thing that could potentially hold me back but I'm into the design enough and after seeing your previous board I'm more than willing to give it a try.

I will be including the JST connector itself as well as the crimps so that you can make your own cable with it. I am also maybe thinking of including solderless USB connectors in order for you to be able to make an entire USB cable without soldering if that bothers you. You will just need to provide yourself with the cable itself and the other materials you might need. ( Zapcables is a good source for this stuff it's usually priced very well )

Sounds like a good idea, don't wanna have the cable be the point of failure and then having issues finding another pcb to replace it.

Fixed cable using either a JST connector that will be provided and you have to assemble that, which isnt too hard, or you can solder the cable straight to the PCB.
