Launching soon!


After a grueling almost 8 month wait, weíre finally here. The RAMA M10-A is finally launching! Since the beginning Iíve always wanted to hit a price point that would make it accessible to as many as people as possible - thatís why I teamed up with Massdrop to make this product a reality and to get it to everyone as affordably and as time efficiently as possible.

The M10-A is really a premium product, from itís heavy weight to its monolithic structure - no detail was spared when designing this product from the ground up. Especially with Machine Industries working in parallel to make sure that the M10-A is as easy as possible to program and use.

I would not have been able to bring this product to the market without the immense support from members of the community. So thank you all for always been so supporting in my products, my designs and my work. The M10-A is only the beginning.

If you have any questions regarding the product, feel free to ask and Iíll answer it as soon as possible!


$99.99 with free domestic shipping (USA), switches and caps :)

Wow, that price point is incredible! The M10 looks fantastic, congratulations Rama. I'm really tempted to get one even though I can't solder, just going to have to get a friend or someone else to do it for me - I'm assuming pre-assembled is not going to be an option?

Thank you for all the work you've put in!

Yeah dude, I'm so happy with the price point we got it to, I was always aiming for $120. And this is including everything you need too!! There's an assembled variant for $8 extra :)

Cheers mate!

Sweet.

OH, we in there 100% then, probably going to order a couple, one for the wife and one for myself, perfect! Price is beyond great yea and cheers for offering assembly, honestly, that helps a ton for people who are a little inept (or just lazy) like myself.

Hopefully there's a tiny gap between this launching and the JC65 coming out haha, wallet needs a breather!

Super excited, very keen to see it all together after staring at it on a screen for so long :)

Yeah, I think they'd look great next to eachother, both high profile :) Colours is definitely the toughest choice to many :P

Was the only way to bring it to market, I'm just not well placed here in AUS to meet the demand :( And to get it to that price point as well X_X

Unfortunately not bro, all the units are not passing through my hands - wish I could help out. Only way is to get it through MD  :p

Hey Rama - is there any practical way i (or maybe a special shop could) can recolor the silver M10-A to the offwhite color you have, so it matches the case of white hhkb, without potentially ruining it or the finish? Super excited to get it but the color difference wont be ideal #firstworldproblems

Yeah for sure, a few automotive shops or specialist powder coating places should be able to do it for you :) I've used paint shops quite a bit here in Melbourne, especially during my University years for models/prototypes. You can just give them anything and they'll paint it - Only the outer surfaces would have to be painted as well - fairly easy :)

Else, if you're good at spraypainting you can lay down a good primer then try it out yourself :P

Cheers :)

Hey rama

Q1) about to get my M4A powder coated - do you happen to know what color that hhkb white is you used?  Not sure if there is an accepted color code or something for it instead of shoving my keeb in their face.

Q2) Also since i know you are busy af, i will put this here too.  Do you (or anyone else) know offhand whether holtite sockets fit the M10 and M4 pcb?

Hey man!

Q1) If you're referring to the initial prototype of the M10, the color is Pantone 427U. I don't have a colour reference for a stock HHKB case though, but the M10 prototype looks really nice next to it:
(http://i.imgur.com/JhKcDEl.jpg)

Q2) I will find that out for you and get back to you :)

Thabks duuude!!

I always just assumed you had color matched it to your hhkb for some reason.  Yah though, the prototype is what i was referring to.  Keebs and keycaps have made me realize how awful i am at judging colors hah. 

Don't worry about the holtite question actually.  I was thinking you may have known offhand.  I already have a sack of them in route for the m4a so i will know soon enough.

No worries man :)

I really love the colour used for the prototype, cool greys are amazing. But yeah, most powdercoaters should be able to do something with that reference color, it's very widely used! You gotta share how it turns out on the M4, that's going to look pretty unique :) Also, make sure that they don't paint too much inside the area where the nylon piece sits, there's about 0.1mm of tolerance around the inside of that cut.

Hope the holtites fit too! Let us know :)

Let me check that for you, Machine uses a specific SIP socket - from what I recall it's not Holtite but another brand. I have left him a message and he will get back to me with the model and make :)

Yeah really not a big deal man - already soldered everything anyhow.  I should have actually looked up sizes before ordering hah. 

One other question,  is there anything i can do to stabilize the 2u keys? I put an two SA 2u on and they both shot off because i hit the key on the sides (where they have no switch).  I put two DSA caps on there instead and they are fine so this could be an issue with the actual SA keys themselves but either way curious about stabilizing.

Hey man! They're: Mill Max 0479-0-43-80-34-27-10-0.

As for the stabs, they are not supported - call me strange but I enjoy the rocking action - I think it's sort of ergonomic to hit it when it's angled and your finger pushes in on an angle rather than straight down :p

PS we want the spinner!!

edit: the Mill Max do not seem to have a groove for press fit -- so they need to be soldered to the board to act as a hot swap socket right?

Very likely! :)

Spinner is coming, looks like hopefully next month :D

As for the Mill Max socket, it has a flange so I'm assuming it sits flush - then yeah I guess you solder it, but I'm not too sure. I'll see if machine has an answer :)

Mine just shipped from Massdrop! I ordered a M10-A with clear switches, so I think it was supposed to be delayed slightly due to issues sourcing the switches.

I'm pretty excited about this, because the CNC and finish looks amazing on the M10-A compared to most macropads/numpads. Except for my M4-A... :)

Was this gorgeous work a one-off good sir or will there be a second run?

Edit: oops sorry I'm impatient, saw your answer a few replies back, can't wait :D

I'm really really hoping to score this and have it next to a M65-A (if I can get ahold of it!) You make gorgeous stuff!!

Duuuuude,
The TMX-INJECTOR looks amazing.. I guess that would replace a :~$ynth and has a built-in box so no need for legos right? I've been wanting to get into cap making, that looks great!

A bit sad to see no Goblin color on these SAs but sweet nonetheless. I'll go for a Moon. I don't suppose there'd be anyway to combine with the Goblin key I also bought? Not really a big deal, but thought I'd ask heh.

Hey cheers man! Yeah, built-in box too :)

Ahh sorry mate, won't be able to combine them since the R3 waves will be shipping much sooner than the SA waves :( You're going to love them though!

Oh hey!! You got it :) Glad you like it mate!

That's really no good that you received 8 switches instead of 10, contact Massdrop ASAP and they should sort that out for you! :)

Hey rama the top left hex bolt on the bottom doesn't tighten anymore...  The corresponding screw hole on the top piece of the metal housing shed some type of coating and now the threads don't catch the hex bolt when i try and screw it in.  It sounds like i am grinding something when i screw in the other ones and I am really concerned this will happen to them too... What is that and how can I fix this?

Sounds like their may be beadblast material or something inside the threads - does it feel scratchy? Best to get some compressed air and blast it in to remove the particles

thanks for the response! I will get some compressed air in there to clean out the others to prevent what happened to the stripped hole.  Can you tell me the size of the hex bolts or a reference so that i can go buy a longer bolt for the stripped hole? the threads at the bottom are still in tact but with the size of the bottom body piece, the original bolt is not long enough to reach l.

They're M3! I think you are supplied with M3x8, so anything longer then that should be sweet :) hope that helps!

They're M3? Uhhhhhhh... I thought they were M3.5/M4 as my M3 screws don't work with it.

100% M3 screws, 0.5MM pitch, guaranteed! Not using DIN screws or something?

Hexagon A/F (aka the size of hex key you need) is different, guess I didn't notice before ;D

Ohhh, yeah, different manufacturers may use different head sizes and allen sizes - but thread etc should be the same and it should screw right in :D

I suppose round 2 will have the same pcb as the round1 or there are improvements? (please! let us know for us looking on second hand markets... or wait until r2!)

Round 2 will most likely be a new PCB :)
