Order Form: https://goo.gl/forms/Yq5dHNULRnBADooj2 (https://goo.gl/forms/Yq5dHNULRnBADooj2)

Shipping:
The boards will be bulked shipped from China to me in the US. I will then ship them out to customers from the US. I'm sorry if you live in Asia I don't have a proxy :blank:. I will charge for shipping once I receive the boards.

Order Changes:
I will not change anything once the invoice has been paid in PayPal, so please choose carefully.

Extras:
There will be some undecided amount of extras ordered (Depends on GB numbers). These will also be FCFS after all GB orders have been fulfilled and will be more expensive.

Swapping Spots:
If you want to swap your spot that's fine, but I'm not going to issue you a refund via PayPal and invoice the other person. I will ship the board to you, and you can ship it on to the next person after you receive it.

Contacting Me:
The best place to find me is on the #kb-kustoms channel on the r/mk discord.  I'll try to respond to messages on Geekhack but it will be much quicker if you use discord.  You can also message me directly at Quantrik#1337.

Invoice Timing:
Invoices will come when we hit 75 orders or when May 1st comes around.  You will have 48 hours to pay your invoice, after that the order will be submitted to the factory.

Group Buy Timeline:
Production: ~60-90 days
Shipping to me: ~14 days
QC + Shipping to you: ~14 days

Good Luck purchasing a board and thank you for supporting me if you join :).

Just a few question.

-Is $40 for an additional aluminum plate correct? I just wanted to make sure.
-Will we be able to choose the color of aluminum plates/additional plates?
-Can we choose the layout for the additional plates? Or will it be based on the default?

I didnít see those options, but wanted to see if itís a possibility.

  • The price for an aluminum/brass plate is the same
  • The color of the aluminum plate will be the same as the board. If you want something different please message me on Discord. (Please do not ask for a color outside the GB colors)
  • Yes I added in the layouts for additional plates, sorry for missing this

Sweet, thanks Quanbro.

Any news about the timeframe? I'm tempted to join but I'd like to hear an estimated production time line, something like: production should be finished within 10-12 weeks. This board looks really good and I like the existence of the prototype, therefore I hope that you have experience with the factory so that you can give us some info about that. Seeing a timeframe and a well planned GB makes me more comfortable to join so I hope you can give us some estimations

It's a pretty neutral colour if its anything like Ducks Blue grey. Should work well with alot of cap sets.

I think he meant he would wait and see the sample before swapping  :p

Also the runner said blue grey sample soon( on a actual keyboard iirc)

So what's everyones opinion on the 8181c as far as keycap compatibility? Is it neutral enough for a wide range of caps?

Sent from my VS996 using Tapatalk

I need to see the shade sample before making decision.
Stay in silver now and will re-anodize it after receiving if 8181c looks good
I'm not willing to go through all that but I am very intrigued by the pantone.

Sent from my VS996 using Tapatalk

I think he meant he would wait and see the sample before swapping 

Also the runner said blue grey sample soon( on a actual keyboard iirc)
Op said a couple weeks. This is going to hit 75 within a few days and have to be paid within 2 days after that

If people are really on the fence about whether they want the blue grey I can hold the order submission until I receive the sample or pictures of the sample. It will delay the entire GB, though.

yes exactly.

My concern is that the Pantone color is the standard for printed stuffs, not metal processing.
If you asked a metal factory for a printed color, they can only give you something similar but not exact same.

The color card I can find in the anodizing factory is indeed made by metal like this: http://img.alu.cn/big/tradesmallpic/20113/11030816462363.jpg
It is a totally different color system than Pantone colors.

Hi,

The pantones I select are specifically from the C series that are designated for "Metallics Coated".  Please do not spread misinformation in my GB thread. I would say that the colors I choose are pretty accurately represented in the final product.

Thanks

Hi All,

You can see the pantones I have selected vs how the colors came out after the anodizing. If you are still worried about how a color will look please select a color that has a sample.  I am confident the colors will look good.

Another option for navy would be this color, but I am afraid that it may anodize too dark and look black.

Hi All,

I've heard from a few people that there is interest in plates for ALPS. Let me know if you are interested via the following form! 

I think I'd be comfortable running an ALPS plate if we had at least 10 orders.

The plate used for this case is not a standard plate, its bigger and sandwich mount. There wouldnt be the standoffs for a normal 60% plate to use it

Cool. I was half-joking but this is great haha.

Could you please swap our places on the list then? Thank you  :thumb:

Since you said it, I'll throw it out there: 5 is my favorite number so if anyone who has #5, #55 or the final numbered slot and want to swap with me (#37 I think, if I'm reading the list right) I'd be happy. No pressure, if you don't want to that's fine too.

I'm sitting at #54 which isn't a bad number. I'd ideally want #6 as that's my favorite number so #6 if you wanna trade let me know!

I guess geekhack doesn't have like pinging capabilities but Itsundone if you wanna change let me know.

The list is offset by 1 since the header begins on Row 1, so Itsundone is actually #5.

I would, I'm looking for slot 5 or 55 though. I don't think slot 5 holder is willing to swap, and slot 55 holder is someone over at KBDLabs which poses a problem since I don't speak or understand Korean meaning I'm not sure how to contact them to ask.

It seems some people are having difficulty determing their order number from the order check spreadsheet.

If you look, you will see that Row #1 is the HEADER. To get the number for your keyboard, subtract 1. The operation is: weightNumber = rowNumber - 1.

Please let me know if you need help determining the number on your weight.  I will be happy to perform the above calculation for you.

Thanks, happy trading.

Hi guys,

Some new I have after receiving my boards from the manufacturer for the SX60 group buy:

They provided me with a flawless prototype and advertised that as the quality for all of the boards that I would be purchasing, but in reality the insides of the keyboards are not finished to the same standards and have visible tooling marks.

The quotes I have received do not include a flawless finish on the inside of the boards.  This means that there will be visible tooling marks inside of the boards :(.  I am working with the manufacturer to get a new quote to see how this will affect the overall pricing.

After I receive the new quote I'll provide 2 options:
1. Adjust pay to finish the inside of the board (I don't imagine this will cost more than $25 per board, but I will have to wait for the quote). I will add this cost to the shipping invoice.
2. Accept the board without the inside completely finished.

The factory will not begin production until we come to a decision as a group. I will be sending a google form link out VIA your email address you used to enter the Group Buy so you can record your response.  If anyone else who is a part of the Group Buy has ideas on how this can be resolved please feel free to comment in the thread.

Thanks and I apologize for the inconvenience.

Here is an example of the tooling marks inside the keyboards:

I second this. No point in complaining about slight machining marks if they are inside of the case, outside of sight and feel.

I agree with the previous posts. As long as it's not visible it's fine for me. Paying up to 10% more for some small blemishes on the inside (which a lot of boards have) is not really needed imo.

Post by: OmegaSupreme on Thu, 10 May 2018, 12:50:53
I agree with what's being said so far. 

Not too concerned with the tooling marks inside, but if the extra cost is reasonable to finish the board, I am not against that either.

Is it an either or option?  Does the whole group need to agree to refinish it or not?

He mentioned in the discord he'd like to keep it as an all or none thing since splitting would make shipping/going through them difficult.

I would personally be willing to pay $15 or less for fixing any blemish but I am flexible and willing to go with the majority.

As long as the tooling marks don't affect how the parts fit together I'm happy to leave it as-is.

Then again if it really is just $25 it might be worth it. After all this keyboard is "extra premium". Plus even with the extra cost I'm still in for less than a TX60 base kit.

It might be fair for him because he doesn't value a bag/pcb that much maybe he had them already and wanted a case to use them. The point is that even if you add 20 bucks to QXP price you're still getting a pretty competitive price.

Hi All,

I spoke with the factory today regarding the tooling marks inside of the keyboards.  They have told me that they will make sure that they do not show up for no additional cost.  Production will continue. Sorry to give you all a scare but I just wanted to be transparent with all of the information that I had.

Thanks

Thanks for being so transparent! Here's to a good GB

Do you have Pantone color codes or something more "neutral" to get a better sense of what the final colors will be? I got the gray one and I'm just trying to see what else might match with it.

Pantone for the Gray is Cool Gray 7C

Hi All,

Some new. The manufacturing requested I bring the order count up to 100 in order to allow a mold to be created for the raw aluminum blocks before machining. This will improve the quality of the board overall and reducs the chance of imperfections appearing during anodizing.

That being said, I have 23 extra boards to sell so if you know anyone who is interested and wasn't able to get a spot, these are up for sale.  The color is not locked in but the layouts are.  The remaining keyboards are:

10 WKL
8 HHKB
5 Standard

Please message me if you are interested in getting one of the remaining 23 spots.

Thanks All!

Iím pretty sure shipping would have to be increased a bit to account for the additional weight.

He literally calls out that the manufacturer requested 100 so they can do a new mold... You think they are doing the first 75 in the old mold and the other 25 in the New? That makes no sense

Ya I read that but how does that mean there will be a delay. It just means they think it will be easier to manufacture with a mold. Like I could just not understand the manufacturing process but the runner didn't say explicitly there would be a delay.

It seems there has been a misunderstanding. There is no delay. I fronted the money for the additional 23 keyboards to improve the quality and increase the speed of the GB overall.  Obviously I am selling them but it will not delay the GB at all.

I want to personally apologise. I was in no way trying to talk bad about you. I was Just nervous that there was a delay. I even said several times on discord about how amazing youve been with communication and that it has been issues with the manufacturer. So again I'm sorry for the butts I hurt.

Hi All,

Update: The manufacturer is set to receive the bulk raw material in the coming week and then machining can begin shortly after.

If you are interested in purchasing a board here are the kits that are still available: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1YttqhwpyjsRi2hG0m7JBProIy4jf3-8hZKvHRRYH4vs. If you do not see a color that means a color can still be chosen.  After the end of this weekend, boards will no longer be available at GB price and will change to $300 (previously $250) for a base kit (Top, Bottom, Weight Plate).

Thanks

Hello fellow QXP friends I mentioned above i was working on an alps specific plate just wanted to give an update on that.

I've got a prototype in which you can see below. Upon immediate inspection i'm really happy with it the alps clip in great and it looks fantastic.

(https://i.imgur.com/qgomnom.jpg)

The next step will be confirming all the switches are in the right location and hopefully, Quan willing, i'll get a chance to check whether it properly mates with the case prototype.

I would definitely be up for one if its HHKB compatible. My orange alps are still waiting for a HHKB Alps board and this would be perfect.

Not sure if we really get enough people to like one layout. Some people want standard aek, others with mx space bar, there are so many options with alps and multi layout plates are nearly impossible compared to mx plates. I hope we can get the plate files open sourced so that everybody can make his own layout plate. From what I've heard https://www.laserboost.com/ 60% plates are around 40$ shipped to the US, to me that sounds like a valid option for alps interested people. And for EU people like me this may even be the better option compared to expensive US>EU shipping.
I personally would probably be interested in a standard aek plate, but as shipping from the US is probably 14$ alone + taxes, I'm not sure if I really commit to that as my primary build will be with mx switches.

I would be interested depending on the layout supported. My Ideal layout is HHKB layout using AEK standard bottom row as I have a M0116 to fill out the proper compat I need. I would also do the 1 - 1.5 - 7 - 1.5 - 1 bottom row w/ cherry stabbed spacebar if anyone has a link to where they are readily available.

So then we are behind schedule at least a couple weeks. These are updates that would have been good to know before the expected ship date already passed.
It's been almost a month since an update and production is scheduled to have been completed 4 days ago any chance we can get some info as to the current status of the buy?

Can't freaking wait.

Cases are in polishing. Thatís where they have been for the last 3 weeks, this part takes a while since itís a slow manual process. After polishing is anodizing.

It takes how long it takes. He canít make the factory hand polish faster. If you wanted a sooner update did you try contacting him?

Either way, I donít mind waiting for quality. Given how nice the kyuus I got turned out, Iím very excited for these. I donít think anyone will be disappointed, but yes, because the insides are being polished to avoid machining marks on the inside, the production time is longer than originally anticipated.

Theres a difference between expecting on time and expecting updates when someone has over 10 grand in other peoples money... I dont think that's too much to ask, but sorry for voicing my opinion

I dont think anyone is questioning the quality. Simply curious on the status as we haven't heard from him in awhile. At least I am.

I didn't intend my tone to come off as accusatory or implying there was anything to be worrying about as far as the status/schedule of the project.

That said, I agree with OnceSavedGaming that it's not unreasonable to ask for an update. Yes we all know it takes how long it takes and have faith the board will come out great that's why we bought it but is it really a lot to ask that someone's who I've paid a significant amount of money to report back to a thread once every 2-4 weeks for an update.

Technically quantrik doesnít have your money. PayPal does. A large portion of the funds is locked out until shipping but quantrik went out of pocket to avoid delays. He wonít get your money until he ships. I try to bug him to update when I think about it, but there just hasnít been any new developments lately.

There is nothing wrong with asking for updates. Quantrik just is not a heavy geekhack user so most of the requests on here arenít seen until someone tells him about them or bugs him to update elsewhere.

He calls out in the OP that he is primarily on discord. If you ask him for updates he provides them. Beyond that, me and some of the other discord users also try and pass info along to keep everyone updated. 

There just is nothing interesting to update right now. I assume heís been waiting for andozing to start so he has something more meaningful to say or new photos or something.

According to the order excel sheet, spot 96, a navy HHKB, is still available. Iíd be interested in your WKL navy board but I donít have a spot to trade :/ maybe you can ask Quan to give you spot 96 instead?

If anyone is interested in trading a Blue Gray WKL spot for a Blue Gray HHKB spot please let me know on here, reddit (u/Tyson522) or Discord (Tyson#0001). I'd love to own one WKL board, but if nobody wants to trade I'll be fine with my HHKB. Can't wait to get these! They're going to look so awesome! Quan just told me "No trades for now." I'm still interested in trading my top for a WKL Blue Grey top after it arrives, if anyone is intersted in a HHKB Blue Grey top please let me know on here, reddit (u/Tyson522) or Discord (Tyson#0001), we can make plans to ship them as soon as they come in.

I'm really kicking myself for not going with WKL, at the time HHKB was all the rage. I wonder if the HHKB layout is going to use a 7u spacebar or a 6u off centered. Actually, did we choose a PCB with the board? Or are we supposed to supply ourselves with one, I might go with another Zeal60 if possible. I really love it on my Kira60!

PCB was optional as case is designed for use with any standard 60% pcb. He did have the option to add a pcb which he said would just be a DZ60 I think.
I'm pretty sure the HHKB layout for this is MX HHKB which is 7u spacebar.

I'm pretty sure the HHKB layout for this is MX HHKB which is 7u spacebar.

Yeah, I just went and looked at my invoice, I didn't go for a PCB, so I'll probably end up with a Zeal60 or something similar. I got my hands on one of KBDfans new 60% hotswap PCBs. It's Type-C and is MX HHKB layout with that 7u spacebar. I really like it, I'll just use that for the board. Should be great for testing out what switches sound the best on the board! I'm hoping to get some lubed Vint Blacks or MX Zilents for it. But I might try out my Outemu Sky's on it first!

It does but they are very close to flush with the sides of the PCB. I threw one in my LZ CLSs just fine, for what itís worth.

Latest word from the mk discord server was that they "might" ship to Quant next week'ish.
I don't know if this was confirmed in any way, though.

Hi All,

There is good news and bad news. (I feel like this is a movie script).

Good News:
I have received all of the boards and will receive the packaging materials/bumpons/screws this week.

Bad News:
As Fedex was carrying the packages to me, the package holding the weights fell apart and they hit the concrete :eek:. My rough estimates at this point are 50% of the weights have minimal damage, 45% are perfectly fine, 5% look like trash.

I do not plan to delay shipping boards to everyone to get replacement weights. I will ship your board and then you can decide whether or not you would like your weight to be replaced if you are part of the 45%. I will order replacements for the 5% ASAP.

Thankies.

Title: Re: [GB] QXP 60% Keyboard (Additional Spots. No Delays)
Post by: regionfree on Tue, 25 September 2018, 00:58:47
Confirming, this is what you mean?

45% - perfectly fine
50% - minimal damage (recipients can opt for replacements)
5% - trashed (you're ordering replacements)

Could you post photos of the affected 50% (35 photos on an imgur album). Quite concerned as I ordered 2, and we're almost 6 months in.

Why are you concerned? Other than the 5% heís gonna send them out (maybe these 2 canít tell) and if you wants replacement heís gonna order one. Then you just swap the new weight in later.

While I get the frustration, to me having to use a mildly damaged alternate weight for a few months isnít really a big deal.

i believe he is working on that, not easy handling and qc-ing 100 boards.
if you open order list at page one, its clear that he is updated some of the board status

i tried to message him on discord, but deleted my message afterward...
probly his chat is full of people asking about their weight, kindo not want to bother him
i think im just waiting patiently since probly im the last to send lol...

If I haven't received a shipping invoice, should I assume my weight is damaged? I checked the order sheet but about a third of the orders don't have a specific status and I'm not sure how updated it is.

You should message him on discord.

It means that he hasnt checked/QCed the case or weight yet. I too am waiting for updates on mine.  :)

Just finished building mine, as a heads up if you are using a pcb with a larger reset button on the bottom you might have to desolder it since there is so little room in the bottom of the case. Great board otherwise and I will update with some pictures after a bit of a glamour shoot tomorrow.
Would there be room for hotswap sockets or holtites?

Hi All,

Here is album for the damaged weights. Please check the order check spreadsheet. If you see your row is RED then you need to check the album! I will also be emailing you.

What would that have to do with anything? Submitting orders to process months from now isnít gonna have any effect on packing and shipping what he has now. 

If you canít wait, try hitting up quantrik on discord. As far as I know heís glad to try and help people get stuff out sooner if itís really urgent. Heís just going down the list otherwise.

Don't do this... just file the pcb near the USB port and it will fit fine.

There are metal prongs from the type-c port to the pcb right where you are suggesting to file the pcb. Not sure about how filing the metal contacts would affect the use of a pcb. Also the LEDs shine just as brightly even with a little separation.

What PCB should I get for this ?

This beauty deserves Zeal60 pcb.
btw if using a zeal60 revision 4 you might need to separate the top part of the pcb from the switches slightly to make space for the slightly extended bit underneath the type-C port. I couldn't get it to fit when it was sitting flush.
