Yes— I've written up a Quality Disclosure (https://keycult.io/pages/quality-disclosure-january-2019-release) as well so that people can know exactly what to expect. (tl;dr If you buy a regular kit from the sale, there should be no exterior defects and some interior defects.) There will additionally be some b-stock kits later this month, and I'll post pictures of the particular defect that makes it b-stock for each kit.

Awesome. Really makes me want to jump on the bandwagon.

Can you give insights on what kind of defect and discount one should expect for those B-stock cases?

Yes to both questions. (I hope to have boards shipped the day after they're sold.)

Awesome. Really makes me want to jump on the bandwagon.

Can you give insights on what kind of defect and discount one should expect for those B-stock cases?

The b-stock defects are primarily minor external issues, usually just one on the case, like a minor ano spot that's only visible in certain light. It's the kind of thing that I wouldn't want to pass as a-stock, but that I think someone could definitely still be very happy with if they knew what they were getting. No word on the discount just yet however, it may vary depending on the particular issue.

And, as an aside for anyone on the fence about joining in (even if it hurts my chances), riot's stuff is top notch.  Love my No. 1 and it's one of the two boards I ended up keeping.  So damn comfy to type on and solid as all hell.

Happy New Year folks!

How heavy are the brass and alu 65s?

Happy New Year!

Some weight measurements for you (unbuilt cases w/o PCB or switches):

  • 60% Aluminum Edition — 2lbs 6.25oz / 1.08kg
  • 60% Brass Edition — 4lbs 5oz / 1.96kg
  • 65% Aluminum Edition — 2lbs 8.5oz / 1.15kg
  • 65% Brass Edition — 4lbs 8.25oz / 2.05kg

That 4lbs would feel so good.

Yes, I'll get some explanatory diagrams up before the actual sale (likely later today or tomorrow).

9° (same for the 60%)

Guessing this is the same angle as the TKL?

TKL was 9.5°, so this is a bit shallower.

So looking forward to this. I'm not too familiar with daughterboards, what's the reason or benefit to having one? Thanks.

You primarily get more flexibility in placement. More pictures soon, but the daughterboard is actually placed in the case bottom and the cable routed up through a hole in the mid part to connect to the PCB. This lets me place the USB cable in a less obtrusive spot than near the top of the keyboard at the plane of the PCB, as well as rotating the daughterboard 9° so that the USB cable extends parallel to the desk instead of parallel to the PCB.

Darknight was right, this is just my personal preference. Additionally, as you lower the angle, the more of the bottom profile & curve you lose.

Is there somewhere you can see more than the 1 photo of each board? 

More photos of the No. 1/60 will go up tonight and more pictures of the No. 1/65 will follow tomorrow.

Will there be a WKL top option for the 60% boards?

Not for this run, but I'll consider a WKL & HHKB option in future 60% boards.

For now, no. They'll only be available with kits because we have a limited stock. If there are extras however, they'll be available to buy separately after boards have been sold.

(https://i.imgur.com/AHODX8h.png)

The plate unfortunately has a small mistake in that the right shift cutout on the plate supports both split and full shift, but the PCB only supports split shift (full shift didn't make sense with the arrow cluster).

Edit: while we're at it, 60% supported layouts as well

Figuring out how to handle half plate switch solder alignment was interesting learning experience, lol

Cherry profile looks killer and sounds/feels cobblestoney but SA types especially nice with this, I don't know how to describe it other than "juicy".
Weighs more than I imagined, the brass version must be really hefty.

Case assembly and VIA usage was absolute cinch.

Nice build! but oof that gap tho.... albeit small gap

I thought a $500 board in 2019 would have addressed these issues.

Did the TKL also have this gap issue ?

Edit: For clarification I was talking about the first picture, but looking the second picture there is a pretty heinous gap-age (maybe its the angle of the photo -shrug-).  Upon second look of the first photo. It seems R3 and R5 caps are not pushed all the down on the stem causing the gaps? R1 is slowly creeping as well. Best scenario we get R2 and R4 with maybe like 1-2mm of seepage, if people care about that sort of thing.

Actually your instinct is correct I didn't push the keys in fully >_<
Also the plate is free-wheeling between the gaskets so if there's sidegaps just gotta unscrew and reseat it. 
If the rows look uneven.. well that's probably due to my positioning of switches on the half-plate. 
The pcb-mount pegs sat fairly loose in the pcb so on my first attempt using just a heavy book to keep things in place rows were misaligned and keys were all up in each other's way. 
I desoldered alphas again and jerry-rigged a grid out of tons of folded paper to space stuff correctly (or at least functionally)... but then that paper wouldn't let me push down as hard on the switches.

Typing more on this I'm really diggin gmk profile for it now.

Here dyrdevil, have a bag of potatoes, sorry for the lighting best I can manage right now.
I tried to adjust the plate to even out the gaps on all sides as much as possible.  The switches on Esc/Caps/L.Ctrl are still slightly visible at the right angle but I notice those are hidden if I tilt the key to the left.  Before I tangled with the naked alphas I soldered in the "ring" of polycarb seated mods.  As the polycarb plate is very soft, when I soldered them in I think they bowed toward the middle of the board as I pushed down which exposed their underside to the left.  They could probably do with a desoldering and realigning with spacers this time but I'll tackle that tomorrow.  I never really appreciated what a rigid plate can do for alignment before this build, just took it for granted I guess.
Also found my package of WoB delivered outside  :D

Thanks so much for the pictures!

Yeah, getting perfect alignment can be a bit of a chore, but unfortunately there's not much option with an isolated plate. My process for a half plate build has been to solder all switches and verify switch alignment with keycaps before assembling.  Then install but only barely tighten the case halves to center the plate correctly using switches to visually line everything up before clamping down the rest of the way.

Glad you like it mate. :)

Surprised the Zeal PCB mounting legs are loose, v1 were insanely tight in Cherry-spec PCBs. I heard Zeal tried to fix that for v2, maybe they over-compensated?

Ideally they're not loose in the PCB at all, so alignment with a partial/plateless build shouldn't be that problematic.

I don't believe Zeal over-compensated here — I don't want any misinformation to be spread. Wilba, who designed this PCB, designs PCBs for Zeal as well, and has in the past used a very slightly larger than Cherry-spec switch mounting holes in order to accommodate non-Cherry switches with legs that were slightly oversized. In my builds, it wasn't problematic (I've built two half-plate PCBs out at this point), but future PCBs will be made with standard Cherry-spec mounting holes.

Thanks so much to everyone who participated, and really sorry to everyone who missed out. There will be 2 more opportunities to get boards: Brass Editions will sell this Sunday (make sure to check the time, because it's 5 hours earlier in the day), and the b-stock sale will come some time next week. I think that the b-stock sale will be a raffle instead of FCFS. I don't really love to be raffling off b-stock units, but I figured it might give some people who really want a board but haven't been able to win FCFS a better shot.

Time to finish packing. Boards will go out tomorrow morning, so if anyone needs a change of shipping address, please let me know tonight! <3

Just unwrapped my gray/blue.  Oh, fellas.  The finish is just amazing.  The only board I’ve ever seen with a finish this nice is the TX   

Photos don’t do it justice.  Now to build it out.

The finish is really interesting in the way it reacts to light.  It somehow stays more consistent in all lighting better than some other boards I have.  I think it must have to do with the reflectivity of the finish. 

Here is a color comparison to my space gray M65-a. 


And here it is next to the mist (silver) M60

Well, whatever system you got going on seems to work well. Suck cause that's the board I was going after too. All's fair, but I'm a little salty you got two boards.

Now that the three sales have finished and boards are rolling in, I wanted to give everyone an update on b-stock. Here’s what’s up:


Thanks so much to everyone for your interest and support. I know that the format of this release wasn't perfect, and all the feedback we've received will be taken into account going forward. I’ll be posting more on what’s to come either this week or next (hint: limited No. 2 release, followed by a much larger release some time after).

Well, I know the a-stock ones have something like "Twelve of 15".  So how does it work for the b-stock is what I meant originally.

Sorry if I wasn't clear. The b-stock boards will have the same engravings, since they were a part of the 20 cases of each version (60% and 65%). For instance, if the board with the engraving "eleven of 15" had a defect, it was held back from the sale as b-stock.

Ok, it makes sense now.  So in reality the sale is even more limited in nature because out of the 15, there could be 5 (a random number) that didn't pass QC and deemed b-stock.  And if "eleven of 15" was considered a b-stock, then there will only be one #11 out there.   :thumb:

Yup, that's correct. The 15 referred to the literal number of kits produced, since they were all numbered.

riotonthebay, I just want to say I am really blessed to be able to get a 1/65 in aluminum last week.  Didn't get a chance to built it yet, but the quality is simply amazing.  And I like the unique design.

I am sure I will enjoy the board for a long time and it is definitely a keeper.

B-stock pricing?

Looks like we don't know exact pricing yet and it'll vary.

  • We tried to be very strict with QC, so we have quite a few b-stock boards to sell. Some of the issues are very minor and some are more serious, so discounts on b-stock boards will vary board-to-board.

While I don't want to completely rule out the possibility, we don't have any plans for a R2 at the moment. We do have a plan for a larger release after the No. 2, but it doesn't include another 60/65. More small form factor boards will definitely be available in the future, but not sure that it will be these exact designs.

While I don't want to completely rule out the possibility, we don't have any plans for a R2 at the moment. We do have a plan for a larger release after the No. 2, but it doesn't include another 60/65. More small form factor boards will definitely be available in the future, but not sure that it will be these exact designs.

Any word on extra pcbs or plates? Thanks.

A limited quantity will be available, but no word yet on specific timing. Maybe next week or the week after.

Edit: Preference will also be given to 1/60 and 1/65 owners, so no one will be able to scoop up all the extras in order to corner the aftermarket poly half-plate market :P

Hey gang, we'll close the form in about 40 minutes and pick winners. Invoices will be sent out fairly quickly and you'll have 24 hours to pay. All boards will be shipped out tomorrow morning.

Thanks so much to everyone who's entered. We had a ton of interest even in these b-stock boards. I know this run was really limited, and while we'll continue to have limited runs like these in the future, we'll also be mixing in much larger runs as well to hopefully reach many more people.

Happy MLK Day!

edit: Invoices sent. Thanks for everyone's interest!

We're waiting until the remaining cases are sold before selling these, and we're waiting on some cerakote samples that should arrive tomorrow to determine whether those cases will be cerakoted or sold as b-stock.

While this is technically the "coming days," I hoped to have more information out much sooner and am still not ready to share more. Currently waiting to hear from some potential Cerakote suppliers before announcing our plans for the remaining boards (and poly partial plates/extra PCBs). I should hear back Any Day Now™. So let this stand as a tentative pre-announcement notice. Or something.

Hello all and @riotonthebay,

We've had someone ping QMK regarding support of this board(s).  If I could be pointed towards the pins used and the switch matrix, I can get them into QMK Configurator this weekend. Assuming these boards are QMK compatible of course.

Of course if these have already been programmed and are just sitting in a branch somewhere on Github, please kindly contribute via pull request, or make links more available so we can point people in the right direction.

Thank you very much for your time!

Thanks for checking in! Yep, just for absolute clarity, these are WT60-A and WT65-A PCBs that ship with VIA compatibility. A bit more info as well as links to download the VIA Configurator can be found here: https://keycult.io/pages/no-1-60-no-1-65. If anyone needs more technical info, you can refer to the wilba.tech files already in QMK.

The No.2 is a TKL, says so in the post but I think we've known that since last year. Just got my bonus payment today so my wallet is ready.

Would you expect the larger releases to be less expensive than the limited releases, due to the volume of boards made correlating to a better price from the manu?

I hope so but can't promise anything just yet. Our CNC machining costs are increasing somewhat as of this year, which offsets some of the savings from volume. And as anyone who's produced a board knows, finding a reliable factory is very difficult and time consuming, so we can't necessarily turn away from our current source due to increasing costs. Just going to have to wait and see how everything shakes out.

We're going to be cerakoting all of the remaining boards so that they can hopefully be sold as a-stock. I'm sure that some people would prefer a b-stock board that they can coat/finish themselves, but there's still a bunch of people hoping to get a board, and I think the large majority of that group would prefer to buy an a-stock board.

Frustratingly, no. It's taking much longer than hoped to get these coated. I'm picking up some samples from a shop this week, and if they're adequate, we'll move forward with them. If they aren't, well... We'll figure out something else.

Because it's taking so long, we're likely going to sell the PCB and plate extras that we have before the cerakoted case. More on that later this week.

saw the restriction that only those who were able to purchase the kits from the site can buy the extra plates/pcb. what about those that got the kits from mechmarket/resale? would like to get an polycarb plate and pcb for my 1/60 kit.

Sure, that's fine -- I don't want to make people jump through hoops, just making sure the few extras available go to folks who bought a kit. =)

@winkeyless Not that we aren't trying... We're just trying something new 😄 Producing boards ahead of time means we get to do proper QC before we ever take anyone's money, and people get boards in days instead of months. It's expensive though, so we can't make as many (for now). This run is indeed very limited, 22 kits, though that's up from the 10 I originally planned when I announced the No. 2 six+ months ago 😅

Yeah we took pictures a couple times to try to capture the actual gray. It's very light, I guess you could describe it as more on the white side, but it's not white.

All parts need to be cleaned and sandblasted before being coated, but it's possible that you're seeing some of the underlying dark anodizing layer on parts that didn't get proper coating coverage. (They sandblast aluminum anodized parts, but not all anodization flakes off or is removed completely, they just need to normalize the surface so that the coating can bond properly.)

Raffle closed. We had a lot more interest than we expected, even compared to our last small raffle sale in February. Please temper your expectations — the average person has about a 1% chance of getting a board. We'll be running the raffle and then sending out invoices tonight. If you receive one, please pay your invoice within 24 hours (or get in touch with us at support@keycult.io if you have some extenuating circumstances).

We're producing 80 kits this time, but we don't know how much b-stock we'll have. As for timelines, we're nearing the end of production and the date of the sale will be announced once we receive and QC all parts. Sale won't be before Keycon, though.

Well i guess if you're torn, go for the Keycult board.  Chances are very slim that you'll get one.  Then if/when you don't get it, you can get the U80 :)

The PCBs are not compatible — the U80 has .5 unit spacing between the alphas and the F-row/nav cluster, whereas the No. 1 uses .25 unit spacing.

We're re-releasing the No. 2 with minor updates. This time, we'll be selling 75 kits through a preorder and making an additional 75 kits on top to guarantee a-stock for preorders and to have extras for sale after preorders are fulfilled. Useful links:

This evening at 5pm Eastern, we're going to be live-streaming our first bi-weekly preorder update on our Twitch channel (https://twitch.tv/keycult). We'll give an update on where we're at with our current projects, followed by a brief Q&A.

Riot I'm curious as to your input on this article - seems to be the reason you went with a vickery, and I'm curious if this will be affecting your keyboards going forward - more expensive/exclusive/etc.

I've been friends with Kevin for quite a while and it was indeed a conversation with him that led us towards the Vickrey auction. However, Kevin's comments in the article represent an outsider's perspective on the market using us as an example -- they aren't some kind of roadmap that we intend to follow. Our goal isn't to increase expense and exclusivity, but quite the opposite. If you look at our release quantities just this year (the only year Keycult has been seriously operating as a business), you'll see that, despite what some folks like to claim, we're quickly scaling up quickly:

January - No. 1/60 & No. 1/65 - 40 kits total (20 of each)
April - No. 2 - 20 kits total
June - No. 1 Rev. 1 TKL - 80 kits total (10 sold through Vickrey)
July - No. 2 Rev. 1 TKL Preorder - 75 preorder spots, 75 additional kits made, 150 kits total (10 planned to be sold through a Vickrey auction after preorders are delivered)

Our next release is planned to be at least as large or larger than the last. We're scaling as quickly as we feel is responsible given our means. While that might piss some people off, it's allowed us to grow while maintaining quality and working out kinks one bit at a time, instead of taking on some massive preorder that we might not know how to handle.

While we're growing, however, it's clear that supply is not equaling demand. I expect that in the future Vickrey auctions will no longer make sense for us as we get closer to having enough kits to meet demand for a particular release. At that point, we'll stop running them. In the meantime, we're not going to turn away money from people who would rather support our growth directly instead of having to buy the same item on the aftermarket. We'll continue pricing our kits in a way that we think is financially sustainable for Keycult as a business, and any additional money made from Vickrey auctions will allow us to scale and grow faster than we may have planned.

I love the innovation you guys are pushing with the new No1 designs.

One thing that would I think really help future keyboard hobbyists would be maintaining some kind of "revision log" of what changed between versions of each of your boards. E.g. things like:

Quote
No. 1 60/65 - switched to full isolation gasket, original No. 1 TKL only had gasket material under the plate and not above
No. 1 Rev 1 - reduced typing angle from 9 to 8 degrees
No. 1 Rev 1 60/65 - added flex cuts around plate edges

It can be very very very hard to find information like this about older custom keyboards. Going forward, it would be great in general to have to rely less on collective community memory and/or posts buried on page 6 of a Geekhack thread, and more on authoritative sources of information. Keycult is in a position to establish this kind of thing as normal precedent.

Obviously if you don't want to publicize this kind of information that's your prerogative - but it seems fitting with your so-far transparent and community-oriented approach, and it won't go unappreciated.

Edit: keeping records of "what colors/options were available and for what price" would also be helpful.

Yeah. The aesthetic is pretty similar, but other details have been changed in the Rev. 1 compared to the first TKL that came out
- Slight changes to dimensions -- thinner accent mid, slight curvature changes
- Uses custom PCB designed by Wilba, and a separate USB-C daugherboard connected to the main PCB through a cable that's routed through the case bottom.
- Centered USB C port
- Slightly lower typing angle of 8° (down from 9°)
