Title: [IC] Kangaroo Left Handed 108
Post by: JonoColwell on Thu, 24 September 2020, 00:29:26
Update: couple of new pics,
https://imgur.com/a/9OZhoQP

Kinda scuffed this one because I didn't specify tolerances for electroplating on manufacture, so I had to use a dremel and smash it with a hammer to fit it together, gonna get it cleaned up from all the finger marks etc on it and take some more pics later.

Note: Not sure if the Rose Gold will be offered as an option, if it is it'll be pricey, it's proper rose gold so it's about 10x as expensive as a black would be etc

Anyone interested in something like this?

Edit: original was a bit disjointed

I originally paid to have this drawn in October of last year.

I assumed gold faith on the part of the artist however I can clearly see the similarities here

I have contacted the original artist to discuss a resolution

Edit2: And it's been resolved.

I think this a Perfect! I am drafter that this Keyboard is exactly what I am looking for! If you make a few prototypes I will buy one from you.
I in Australia too. The desing is optimal, i dont have to remove my hand from the mouse. There is a lot of southpaw Keyboards but they keep the arrows in the right.

Please plenty of spot for us Aussies on the GB.
AE boards and Rama always put America first, many American Group Buys are exclusive to Americans or are priorities.
Group Buys open to them first and then the rest of the world.
AEboards dose not priorities the Australian customer.
Like the SOUTHPAW75 was focus on Americans.

No, but i am kind of interested in a keyboard with a closing lid.. or a keyboard in a wood box.

The gravitational force of this keyboard will mean that you need heavier springs.

Excuse me?
Who are you? You've got 2 posts on geekhack so I assume you are new to the community.

I'm running the Australian commmunity server and gave friends and family gb slots to people in there. I've not run a public group buy in a long time so I'm unsure of what your accusations are.

What does Southpaw75 have to do with AEBoards or Rama?

Updated with additional pics of the prototype, I've had it electroplated, unfortunately I didn't  get tolerances put in for electroplating, so that needed to be dremel'd down and bashed with a hammer a fair bit to fit it together, next time definitely get the tolerances right.

https://imgur.com/a/9OZhoQP

Couple of additional prototypes lined up, some which are just blasted and sealed brass with anodised tops and another couple I'm looking into which I'm planning on getting plated with proper tolerances etc.

Note the rose gold on this does not have the protective coating on it, so it's very prone to scratching, I elected to not have the coating as it would add additional thickness and I knew I would already be running into issues with that, overall this thing is very stiff to type on but that's not so bad because I like tactiles. Not 100% sold on the sound of if, but that's at least in part because I'm using U4s unmodded because I'm kinda lazy.

This thing looks insane. Is this a top mount? I couldn't find the mounting information. I am a leftie and am interested.

I stumbled on this looking at some AE Boards.

This is exactly what I was after.

Expressing interest in all brass but would take anything for the layout. I'm expecting it's going to be excessively expensive but that's fine if your plan comes together.

Whats the angle going to be?

BTW it's not really left handed so much as sensible keyboard design. The arrows and number pad on the right is a remnant of the pre-mouse days. Saying that I suppose the qwerty layout is as well.
