Title: [GB] GMK Blank keycaps, any row/size in standard GMK colors
Post by: scud80 on Thu, 28 March 2019, 21:04:07
Welcome to my second blank keycap group buy.  Last year I ran a buy for Signature Plastics blanks through mechmarket, and the order ended up being over 28000 caps.  This time the buy will be with GMK.  For those that participated in the buy last year, this one will be similar, but there are a few key differences.

Please read all this before submitting the form (link is at the bottom).  I know it’s a lot of information, but this buy is a bit more complicated than many others.

Here’s how the buy works:

Everything is tracked using a Google spreadsheet.  You will need a Google account in order to edit it.  When you request access, you will be given a block of rows where you can fill in what you would like to order.  Here's an example of what the sheet looks like:

(https://www.scud80.com/images/gmk_example.png)

The options for you to fill in are:

Quantity - MOQ is 150 caps for each row/size/color combination.  The sheet allows you to put lower quantities than 150, but the price per cap is scaled so that 150 can be ordered.

Size - Available row+size combinations are all listed in the select box.  There are a few other sizes available that I didn’t include, such as the LED windowed caps, R3 1.75u stepped key, and ISO enter.  If you want to order a lot of one of these types send me a pm.

Color - Only GMK standard colors are available, but there are a lot of those.  Here’s an image of all of them except for WS2, though that color is also an option.  This image is also in the Google sheet on the “Reference Sheet” tab.

Other information on the sheet that you won’t need to edit:

Location - This will show USA, EU, or Other.  mykeyboard.eu will be handling EU fulfillment, and I will be handling fulfillment for everybody else.  Pricing will be displayed in Euros for EU fulfillment and in USD otherwise.

Pricing -   And now for the important part.  Here is pricing per combination based on the quantity we order (this can also be viewed on the “Reference Sheet” tab in the document).  As mentioned, the MOQ per row/size combination is 150, so the 150 line is for quantities from 150 to 249, etc.

(https://www.scud80.com/images/gmk_pricing.png)

Shipping is not included in the above prices.  Caps are pretty light (about 1kg for 1000u of keys), so shipments within the USA and within the EU will not be too expensive.  Shipping outside of the USA/EU will be $15-25 unless you order >1000 caps.  EU prices include VAT; sales tax will need to be collected for shipments to California addresses.

Payment will be in euros for those getting EU fulfillment, and you will be invoiced by mykeyboard.eu.  Payment for everyone else will be in dollars, and invoiced by me.

Timing - The GB will be open until April 26 (4 weeks), and I’ll post a reminder on r/mechmarket and GH once a week or so.  Invoicing will be completed 1-2 days after the buy ends.  Non-payment of invoices has the potential to screw up pricing for everybody, so please be sure you will be able to pay for what you order immediately after the buy ends.

GMK has said that production will take 8-10 weeks after payment is submitted.

And finally, here’s the Google form to fill out:

https://forms.gle/HseFiSqspKX6616L7

I will plan to give people access to the order sheet at least once per day, starting tomorrow morning.

March 30 Update:

Everyone who has filled out the form as of 12pm PDT today should have access to the sheet now.  Yesterday it seemed like gmail wasn't delivering some of the emails that said I had shared the document (I guess they thought I was spamming), so if you didn't get an email check out https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/u/0/ and it should be there.  If you have any issues/questions you can post here or pm me.  GH post is up now at https://geekhack.org/index.php?reportsent;topic=100031 which might be easier to follow.  To answer a few questions that have come up:

I have inquired about whether the fullsize spacebars are the same cost as the other >1u keys.  My GMK contact is out of the office until April 1, and I'll update the sheet when I hear back from her.

/u/shinmai posted a link to an alternative photo of the standard color keycaps:

(https://i.imgur.com/d1lertl.jpg)

I'm allocating space on the sheet in 20-row blocks.  If you use all 20 rows and want more, send me a pm and I'll allocate another block for you.

To confirm the row numbering, the top of the keyboard is row 0/1, and the bottom of the keyboard is row 4/5.  The only keyset I know of thus far that has used the 0/5 molds is R2 Carbon.

New keys that I add will be at the bottom of the dropdown list.  Thus far I added stepped caps lock keys, 1u LED-window keys for each row (also LED stepped and unstepped caps lock), and ISO enter.

March 30 Update 2:

I'm changing the price per piece that's displayed for quantities that are lower than MOQ.  Initially I scaled the price so that the MOQ would be reached.  Now I'm going to display the price it will be if it gets to MOQ, and also highlight in light red the quantity for the combination for those that are <150.  When the buy get to about a week left, I will change the pricing back to the original method so people can make a decision about whether or not they'd like to pay the higher price to push certain keys to reach 150.

April 1 Update:

I heard back about spacebars, and those have now been added as options.  They're at the bottom of the dropdown list, and they have different pricing compared to the other keys.  Pricing can be viewed on the "Reference Sheet" tab in the document.  The four spacebar options (6u c, 6u oc, 6.25u, 7u) are all priced the same.  Everybody that has filled out the form now has access to the sheet, so if you think you filled it out and don't have access let me know so I can investigate.

April 8 Update:

Since I haven't been able to do as much work while on vacation as I was planning to, I've decided to extend the buy for another week.  New end date is April 26.  I'm traveling tomorrow, and will plan to post another update on Wednesday with some new information.

April 13 Update

The buy has now been going for 2 weeks (and 2 days), and we’re at about 23,500 caps on the order form.  There are a quite a few combinations that are already past the MOQ mark, mainly in CR, WS1, TU2, and DY colors.  Quite a few more are within 50 caps of making MOQ as well.  If you have any questions feel free to post/pm.

The buy is running until April 26, so there are 2 weeks left.  Next week I’ll switch pricing on the below-MOQ combinations so that they show how much it would cost to get to MOQ.

A brand new cap is now available.  Several people expressed interest in getting a 1.25u spacebar (Row 4), and after asking my GMK contact about it I was surprised that their MOQ for such a key isn’t nearly as high as I would have expected.  In order for them to make it, at least 1000 keys will need to be purchased, with each color having an MOQ of 150 like the rest of the caps.  This will not add much, if any, time to the manufacturing process.  The bad news is that the pricing for these is higher than the other small caps.  It’s priced the same as the big spacebars, which I suppose is what has to happen to build the cost of the mold-making into it.  But, if this is something you’ve been waiting for, here’s a chance to get the mold made and available for all future GMK sets.  It’s at the bottom of the drop-down for size.

April 21 Update:

There are now 5 days left in the buy, and as of this morning there were 59 different types of keys already above MOQ.  Sorry about the sheet being so slow ... the "Current Quantities" tab updates on each change which can bog it down.  Hopefully it's not too much of a pain.

Important pricing info: I have now updated the pricing formula on the sheet, so that the price displayed is what you will have to pay for the keys to reach MOQ.  Now is the time to decide whether or not you want to keep these keys in your order.  If you do not, you must delete them.  Check back a few times, because as people delete or add more keys the pricing will change for all keys that are below MOQ.

Here’s an example.  Say that you want 4 1u keys in a combination that currently has a total of 50 on the sheet.  The price per key will now show $3.78 per key.  If the buy finishes at this level, then each person would pay $3.78 per key listed in their order, but would actually receive 3 times that number, so for that line you would pay $11.34 and receive 12 keys.  If you want 4 1u keys and there are only 15 on the sheet, then you’d pay $12.60 per key ($50.40 total) and receive 40 keys.

All quantities that remain on the order sheet will be invoiced at the prices listed next weekend.  I will stop adding new people to the sheet on Tuesday, and post another update on Thursday to remind you once again to double-check your section of the sheet.  Any unpaid invoices have the potential to mess up pricing for many other people.  So please, don’t be a ****.

April 24 Update:

I'm no longer adding new people to the sheet, as mentioned in the last update, so now is the time to evaluate your rows to decide if you need to delete anything.  For low quantity types, it's pretty unlikely that others will be adding more at this point if that's what you've been waiting for.

The buy won't be extended again.  Quantities took a small hit at the beginning of the week, but there are still close to 18000 in types that are above MOQ (about 3500 below its highest point).  Maybe offering kits would improve things, but it would mean *way* more work for me.  I'd either have to input all the quantities myself or code up a website/database to do it, which is above my level of interest at this time.  I'll revisit the possibility later, and if somebody else would want to work with me on that let me know.  The SP buy was much smoother because their minimum was effectively ~$60/type as opposed to ~$200/type with GMK, and there wasn't ever any "will this make MOQ" anxiety ... it was just "will this get cheap enough to be worth it".

I'll lock the sheet to edits before I go to bed Friday (10-11pm PDT).  At that point I'll deal with issues, such as people on low quantity things that couldn't be bothered to remove their quantities, or last minute changes that affect others.  Check your rows on Saturday and send me an email (@gmail.com) if something changed significantly that affects what you want to order.  I imagine most/all of the above MOQ types are fine.  I will optimistically have all the individual issues worked out this weekend so that invoices can go out starting on Monday.

As always, if you have questions send me a pm either on here/Reddit/Discord.  You can also post, though that's harder for me to keep track of whether I've responded.

May 1 Update

I've done all the updates to the sheet that I think are correct.  Please check your rows on the "Order Form updates" tab of the sheet to make sure everything looks ok to you.  I removed all keys that had 10 or fewer total requested.  Also, there are 22 people whose orders are for 10 or fewer caps, and a few of these might raise prices slightly if they end up not paying.  If it's only a couple of people I'll just cover their orders myself.  I can still add caps if you need some added, in which case you should email me at scud80@gmail.com, but please no reductions unless prices have changed significantly.

I'll give everybody until Friday morning my time to check and see if it all looks good, and then I'll plan to begin invoicing on Friday evening unless further changes require checking in with people.  Thanks for your patience!

Also, a quick plug for my next project.  After this order has been placed and paid for with GMK I'm going to do a small GB for a DCS Ergodox/Planck mod set in Camping colors.  DCS is close enough to Cherry that it should look fine.  It'll be a bit over $50 (for 50 caps) if I can get 25 sets ordered.  If you don't have GMK Camping, then an additional 40-key double-shot alphanumerics kit (0-9, A-Z, 4 punctuation) will be available starting at about $30.  No regular mods/novelties/numpad/etc will be offered.  If you'd be interested in that send me a pm and I can let you know when I launch it.

Hi,

For those curious about what WS2 looks like, here is a picture(by Jebbra i believe) that compares it to the rest. You can also see an example of it on GMK Monochrome.

There will be a page in the document that shows current quantities for all combinations chosen so far, so it will be easy to see.  I'll be setting that up in the next few days.

Here are RGB codes for everything except WS2.  You can download UNIQEY's PDF here (https://uniqey.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/208727129-Which-colors-are-available-for-the-keycaps-).

(https://i.imgur.com/b83MlIc.png)

Edit: Photos and RGB color codes are not perfect.  UNIQEY says here (https://uniqey.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001641213-I-would-like-to-work-with-custom-colors-How-does-the-matching-process-work-): "...experience has taught that an on-screen color selection is less accurate than a real-world choice. Many of today's LCD screens and smartphones are showing inaccurate, over-saturated colors which are looking nice but are not true to color. That means that the color you see on your device is in general not the original tone. In order to avoid deviation, we have to stick with either existing plastic chips or a color value which is part of the Pantoneģ Coated color range."

if a row/size/color combination does not make MOQ then the people wanting those keys will have the option to buy more to meet the MOQ, or those keys will simply not be produced.

With an attitude like that you'll never get those mods that you like. Least you can do is put them down and how for the best.

I'm in the same boat. I'm also looking for assembly/ergo mods.

Can we also get the option to change the color to one that does hit MOQ?

Also: Don't forget to buy homing keys please. They aren't doing well so far.

Hey, thanks for the tip regarding GMK Nines! Yup, U9 could work for both GMK 9009 & GMK Nines.

I also inquired with TheKey.Company if they would be willing to use this GB to bring back their GMK N9 ErgoDox kit. It would work with GMK Nines as well, as well as their GMK _Terminal sets.

If looking for a dark grey mod, why not N9? It has two active GBs going right now and has been used in past sets. I think 9009 and Terminal are two, but there may be more.

It stops at 2.75u spacebars so 1.25uC yes. I don't see 3u spacebars in the drop down menu but perhaps they can be added?

I didn't see a 1.25uC one either, but perhaps I just missed it?

My bad. You are right. 1.25 and 3u are definitely odd lengths for spacebars. The more standard split space options are there though.

What layout needs 1.25u and 3u spacebars? Just curious

UT47 uses 1.25u raise/lower keys - it would be nice to use convex keys :) Other than that I don't know, but I'm still a mk noob ;)

I was planning the 1.25u and 3u for the Filco MiniLa layout. I have not seen them in any GMK set, but it would be great if you can ask them and let us know if they can provide these sizes.

Curious, for quantities that doesn't hit moq, will it happen at non moq prices, or the keys will be cancelled?

for those that don't get to 150, the people interested in them will have the option to buy enough so that they get to 150.  if they'd rather not do that, then those keys won't be ordered.

Can we also get the option to change the color to one that does hit MOQ?

Also: Don't forget to buy homing keys please. They aren't doing well so far.

i'll be doing an update a couple days prior to the close of the GB so that those with caps below MOQ can figure out what they want to do.  the pricing on those keys will also be switched at that point so that users will see the price they'd have to pay for them to reach MOQ.

Will these still be double-shot even though no legends? How does that work?

Double-shot means two colors, so no these are not double-shot.

If anyone else is into this idea, it might help if we coordinated our choices to help reach MOQ. Right now Iím thinking L9 and CV. But Iíve never seen those yellows in person. Would N6 be better?

Sitting here with serika, and CV is going to be the closer of the two. N6 is a tad darker. I think either would look good though and wouldn't be noticeable unless you put them side by side.
On another note, N6 is the yellow in Nautilus, so if anyone want's to help get spacebars to MOQ ...

Thanks for the input. I may go with N6 in that case. Any idea whch existing sets use CV? Trying to get a sense of how much more orange N6 leans by contrast.


As for the N6 spacebar, I can probably help with that since it would work toward the GMK Handarbeit set Iíd like to put together. Seems that set wonít likely get made, so this might be the only way to get something close. Fortunately, I think that one would work particularly well with blanks.

This is the best I could get with my phone on the difference in direct sunlight. Hope it gives a better idea. I have no idea in regards to CV though, I haven't seen a set that uses it yet.

Thanks! I think there's also a lot of people who want the spacebars kit for Nautilus. There was only one in the last re-cap :(. So hoping more people hop on board for the color.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190403/83cdf527d46ccdce5bfe4a36ca0a0856.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190403/85cce33cb59e2b94602eeb173dcc67c0.jpg)

Weíre about a week into the GB period and there are currently a bit over 15000 caps on the order form, though a number of types still need some help to get to MOQ.  I will be traveling for the next 6 days; I will still be adding new people and answering questions, but it might take me a little longer than during the first week.

In the next couple days I will begin updating the ďCurrent QuantitiesĒ tab on the order sheet, probably once a day.  The tab will have a full list of all the caps that have been added to the order sheet, sorted by quantity (high to low).

A small plug for Ergodox caps:
The caps that Iím personally buying are to make Ergodox kits with CR and WS1, plus blank alphas.  For anybody else thatís interested in these, please consider adding a few extra of the Row 1 and Row 3 1.5u caps, as these will be of less interest to non-Ergodox users.  Also, Iíve currently got 2u spacebars to use for the 2u vertical keys, mainly because there is interest in 2u spacebars outside of Ergodox.  I would actually prefer to use Row 2/3 vertical 2u keys for those, but thereís currently no interest in those.  Do others prefer to use the convex keys for 2u on Ergodox?
Title: Re: [GB] GMK Blank keycaps, any row/size in standard GMK colors
Post by: nasp on Thu, 04 April 2019, 00:37:15
As an ergo user, I'm happy to throw in a few extra 1.5u mods as needed. My ergo layout doesn't call for 2u vertical mods, but if we're only a few away from making MOQ on those, I'm happy to throw in those as well. 2u spacebars for the vertical mods definitely makes sense in terms of reaching MOQ; however, as far as use, I don't have experience using 2u spacebars because of what I mentioned above. 

Also, let me throw in a plug for N9 (dark grey) keys. A lot of sets use them. GMK SkIIdata, GMK Nines, GMK 9009, GMK Terminal, a few others and also the most recent one on Massdrop incorporates it as well, GMK Eclipse. I've also noticed that the dark grey from Carbon is not too far off N9. But the white and black of CR and WS1 definitely make sense too if you are needing keys to match other sets.

N9 is doing reasonably well and I believe should hit MOQ. TU1 and TU2 are already there by a large margin, but like I said, no one is buying homing keys. Black and white are doing well too.

This is very interesting and I'm going to buy a lot of spacebars and convex keys. Too bad that the the universally used 1.25 key isn't available as convex, I think that gmk has no mold for it (can we ask them to make it???? Surely we can purchase 1000 units or more.... Pressing the right alt is one of the more annoying gestures, since you press directly on the border of the key.

Yet I'm trying to figure out what other keys will I buy.... Perhaps a modifier set with an improbable purple color? What is your inspiration with this buy?

I think you're being overly optimistic. While I do agree with you personally and would love to have all my alts convex, we seem to be a small minority. (And some of the others that care will tell you you're doing it wrong ;) )

If the price is acceptable, we can surely buy more than one unit. The OP will decide if the interest would be bigger by making it available as blank only, or blank plus doubleshot. I think that I could be huge. Just imagine a full convex bottom row... Fantastic.

Would it be a good idea to combine all of the disparate efforts to reach MOQ on certain caps somehow? I'd be 100% supportive of getting certain caps to tip regardless of color, but if we're all moving in different directions, it's going to prove difficult.

Is there a discord channel or something similar available that we could leverage for a group effort? I'm sorry if I'm late to the game with this idea, but I really think this GB is a great opportunity to outfit some wacky layouts.

We'll wait for gmk then :-) Can you call them to have a faster answer? In my experience they answer in 3ų20 days. There's ALWAYS someone on vacation... ALWAYS  :)) :))
Obviously doing the 1.25 convex buy now would be better, because we save on shipping.

Curious, for quantities that doesn't hit moq, will it happen at non moq prices, or the keys will be cancelled?

for those that don't get to 150, the people interested in them will have the option to buy enough so that they get to 150.  if they'd rather not do that, then those keys won't be ordered.

I'm assuming this also holds true for the larger spacebars?

Will you also unlock the spreadsheet page that shows a sortable listing of current quantities by color and size? Would be very useful to get an idea of which of my plans are never going to work out. Then I can adjust my order according to what looks at least vaguely possible based on current orders.

You should be able to do that now. I am able to add a "Temporary Filter" to the top row, through my Google Account.

The "Current Quantities" tab in the sheet has now been updated.  I'll plan to update it at least once a day.  Note that everything is showing up twice in the list (once for the USD price and once for the Euro price).

Regarding the 1.25u convex, I'll hear back on Monday, but I will not be including it in this buy.  Even if it's something that will work out it would delay fulfillment for the current buy.  My guess is that the cost/MOQ for making a new mold is going to be fairly high (like in the 5000-10000 range in terms of MOQ), but perhaps I'm wrong.

You may not have to do that depending on the color. Which color (s) are you leaning towards?

Yeah, I got the sorting working now, thanks!


As was already said, CR and WS1 are fine if thatís your thing, but since literally every single board at my workplace is a crappy rendition of WOB, I would rather type on bare switches than put black caps on my own boards.


Iím hopeful more colors will get better support. The only ďcolorfulĒ option Iíve noticed with strong backing thus far is TU2. Not my first choice, but Iíll happily jump in to help it along. I donít think my own preferences will come anywhere near MOQ as things stand, so if anyone wants help coordinating support for colors other than black and white, please speak up. Maybe if we get on the same page we can make at least a few less predictable alternatives a real possibility.

Rethinking the set idea. Seems like Row1 is the only one that even looks close to passing. And don't really need a bunch of Row1 keys by themselves :))

I know for sure N5 would work as I have a key that uses that color with me, but not really sure about V4 as I don't physically have any samples on hand.

My main goal is blue blanks though so if I can't get the N5 going, V4 most likely work out for me. I'll have to keep an eye out on the quantity totals.

I think that the ordering process is quite intimidating and error prone for all the novices and beyond. I wonder if having some predefined grouped keys could help. For example: define and order an alpha set, or define a modifiers set. This is important also because people seem to forget to order the homing keys which is really despicable.

I think that most people don't know what colour to order, and so decide to pass. Probably you could add some reference to the unikey colour table, for example about which is the OG beige, or the hyperfuse gray.

This GB could be huge, but to order a full set of blanks takes too much time, dedication, and knowledge.

Great ideas. Like SA blanks did. But even just a document with common layouts referencing key rows and amounts could help here.

I am concerned about homing keys making MOQ. This will result in expensive keys for some and missing for others unless I am mistaken and people really don't care for them.

@scud80 Maybe you could send a reminder or update the sheet about homing keys. It's my problem if people really don't want them but it's everyone's problem if they want them and are not thinking about them.

Same here. I'd love a blanks set for UT-47.2 but wouldn't want to be without homing keys. There seems to be very little interest so far... Hope that improves.

If you are on the fence about 2u N9 spacebars now is the time to add them. They are almost 2/3 of the way to MOQ. These are hard to come by unless you order a separate spacebar kit. Don't let your ortho or split build be without a spacebar!

Please, don't do that! If everyone did that, nothing would ever make MOQ.

Everyone, please put everything you want on the sheet to at least give it a chance... You can always cancel at the end.

Let's all wait it out and see what happens. Worse thing is that your keys won't make MOQ so you would just have to cancel that order. No harm in keeping the keys and seeing what happens. If you need more lines on the spreadsheet, OP can provide more for you.

There's still a few weeks left and people either have blank lines because they haven't yet filled out their order or they have just been added to the group. If everyone during the first week backed out because nothing was close to MOQ...well, the spreadsheet would be empty.

I was really hoping to get a bunch of sets to cover alphas and mods that I could mix n match at a whim. I made myself a spreadsheet with all the boards i wanted to cover for various boards and was going to do something like:

Spacebars, Homing, and Alphas: CP, CR, WS1, 2M, L9, N9
Mods: CP, CR, WS1, CC, U9, N9, 2B

(and also get a few fun colors for various positions like esc, enter, control, etc)

But it turns out homing keys are pretty unpopularÖ as well as many of the modifiers I was hoping to get to cover some 40s.

I don't think it's that they are unpopular, but that only 2 are needed for a set. Some people, myself included, are not aiming for whole sets though either.

Maybe Scud80 can talk to GMK and see if MOQ can be lowered for homing keys. Seems like a reasonable request. In the end, we may just have to decide on if we want bar or scooped homing keys. I'm happy to add some homing keys if it needs that extra push at the end.

What will happen with under MoQ orders?

From an earlier post from scud8:

I guess my question is what happens if certain color keys don't make MOQ? does that just invalidate the rows? also a sample with the correct number of keys for each row/size for a standard layout would be extremely helpful

if a row/size/color combination does not make MOQ then the people wanting those keys will have the option to buy more to meet the MOQ, or those keys will simply not be produced.

April 13 Update

The buy has now been going for 2 weeks (and 2 days), and we’re at about 23,500 caps on the order form.  There are a quite a few combinations that are already past the MOQ mark, mainly in CR, WS1, TU2, and DY colors.  Quite a few more are within 50 caps of making MOQ as well.  If you have any questions feel free to post/pm.

The buy is running until April 26, so there are 2 weeks left.  Next week I’ll switch pricing on the below-MOQ combinations so that they show how much it would cost to get to MOQ.

A brand new cap is now available.  Several people expressed interest in getting a 1.25u spacebar (Row 4), and after asking my GMK contact about it I was surprised that their MOQ for such a key isn’t nearly as high as I would have expected.  In order for them to make it, at least 1000 keys will need to be purchased, with each color having an MOQ of 150 like the rest of the caps.  This will not add much, if any, time to the manufacturing process.  The bad news is that the pricing for these is higher than the other small caps.  It’s priced the same as the big spacebars, which I suppose is what has to happen to build the cost of the mold-making into it.  But, if this is something you’ve been waiting for, here’s a chance to get the mold made and available for all future GMK sets.  It’s at the bottom of the drop-down for size.

The buy has now been going for 2 weeks (and 2 days), and weíre at about 23,500 caps on the order form.  There are a quite a few combinations that are already past the MOQ mark, mainly in CR, WS1, TU2, and DY colors.  Quite a few more are within 50 caps of making MOQ as well.  If you have any questions feel free to post/pm.

The buy is running until April 26, so there are 2 weeks left.  Next week Iíll switch pricing on the below-MOQ combinations so that they show how much it would cost to get to MOQ.

A brand new cap is now available.  Several people expressed interest in getting a 1.25u spacebar (Row 4), and after asking my GMK contact about it I was surprised that their MOQ for such a key isnít nearly as high as I would have expected.  In order for them to make it, at least 1000 keys will need to be purchased, with each color having an MOQ of 150 like the rest of the caps.  This will not add much, if any, time to the manufacturing process.  The bad news is that the pricing for these is higher than the other small caps.  Itís priced the same as the big spacebars, which I suppose is what has to happen to build the cost of the mold-making into it.  But, if this is something youíve been waiting for, hereís a chance to get the mold made and available for all future GMK sets.  Itís at the bottom of the drop-down for size.

Great news! I suppose/hope that most of you will push beige and black?


Black is doing much better than beige. Just hoping for beige to reach MoQ as it is the colorway that I mostly use.

So, let's take this scenario- I want a full TKL of one color, and the left shift doesn't make it and all other keys do. The entire set is useless to me without it, therefore I won't pay for my invoice. I'm sure this is going to happen, and thus the way this group buy is set up is doomed to fail- classic tragedy of the commons.

What if it was like this: we take this initial phase more as a vote of how many people are down for what colors/keys, and create sets made of the most popular combinations. To address keys that people would still get without needing entire sets, we can isolate keys that made it into the MOQ that didn't make it into sets, and ask people who signed up for them if they still want them without the other keys that made it, and then tally up the new total to see if they still pass the threshold. Also, certain less common keys that are within sets can be added at any quantity, to potentially give those sets an effective lower MOQ (like R4 2.25, R4 2.75, R3 2.25, spacebars, etc).

The other positive effects: lower barrier to entry, which will attract many more people. You'll be able to make renders, people can imagine the products on their keyboards much more easily.

There will be some people that are left unhappy, but most of these people would likely not have had their keys made anyway. It seems to me this strategy maximizes the total happiness across everyone.

What do ya'll think?

Each person is responsible for making sure that their entries on the sheet are things that they will pay for and delete the things that they don't want.  I had all of 1 person not pay last year, and that was for 5 caps which didn't affect anything else.  If someone fails to pay an invoice, they won't be allowed to participate in any future GB I'm associated with.

I think letting people order a TKL mod set, alpha set, ortho mod set, ergodox mod set would drastically increase the chance that certain sets get made.

Like, in the actual drop down.

Putting less common keys in a TKL Set (Split shift / 2u shift) will make it so everyone can be happier and actually have these folks commit to their purchases, instead of missing out on one unique key...

Seems pretty hard to adjust course now though...

So we'll have to take the things that don't make MOQ off beforehand?

I disagree.  It would still require 150 people to buy a TKL set, which is more than 1/3 of the people that have access to the sheet right now.  Even in the SP buy which had *much* lower MOQ requirements, there were very few caps ordered bigger than 2u.  However, I could be wrong, and I may experiment with it if I run this buy again next year (which is a big if).

So we'll have to take the things that don't make MOQ off beforehand?

That's partially correct.  The pricing displayed on the sheet will be adjusted in a week so that it represents what it would cost to make MOQ.  So you won't be deleting things that are below MOQ ... you'll be deleting things that are too expensive.  Combinations that are at 130 pieces, for example, would show a price that's 15% higher than the 150 tier in order to cover the last 20 caps (which would be distributed to the people buying that combination).  Combinations that are only at 50 pieces would show a price that's 3x the 150 tier.  I'll provide all this info with examples and such when I do next weekend's update. 

tl;dr you'll need to delete things you don't want prior to me locking the sheet.

How’s it going man. I submitted two requests and PMd you over the last week or so. Any chance I could get some help?

You're on the sheet; you were actually added twice since I didn't notice the duplicate submission.  If you didn't get a notification from Google, check your Sheets dashboard.

150 folks need to support ANSI Mods for them to get made. Regardless of offering a set drop down or not.

Offering an easier ordering process makes it easier to support. With a set, it guarantees that if the set makes it, all keys also make it. All or nothing. Not an awkward "ANSI Mods (but minus the right shift)"

Just wanted to note that if everyone got the same color, the numbers would look a LOT better. For standard ANSI TKL, the only keys that would be below MOQ are row 1 - 2u (60) and row 4 - 2.75u (85). But most people probably have strong color preferences so I guess this isn't really possible.

The new 1.25 convex spacebars aren't doing too well, but hey.... they've just been added.

Is there a way to publicize them outside this gb? I'm sure that a new thread could help. Maybe an IC, considering that we need 1000 orders (150 per color). We could also try to make thing better by limiting the order maybe to few colors?
Has this been posted on other fan sites like deskthority, reddit, and the various reddit spinoffs?

I'm looking to buy a number of modifier caps in U9 and possibly other colors-- GE1, CR, TU1, TU2, etc.  I'm glad to work with other folks to try to make sure our orders hit MOQ.  I'll commit to ordering a bunch of yours if you'll order some of mine. 

Also looking to order 6.25u spacebars.  That's going to be tough, but if we pick a couple colors and commit to buying 10 of each, we might be able to make it happen.  For this, I'm specifically interested in U9 spacebars, which are really hard to find.

Lastly, I'm very interested in putting together some adapter kits for OG Cherry sets.  Let me know if you want to put together some standard kits for beige, WoB, or dolch.  If we find enough people willing to commit to 5-10 kits, maybe some will make MOQ.  These could possibly be resold on r/mm as well.

Many thanks to scud80 for making this happen!

Based on current committed quantities, if we want to get modifiers in, I think we'll have to focus on CR, WS1, DY, and maybe TU2. I'm currently in for about 3 TKL/75% keyboards in CR, could use some help on the modifiers / spacebars.

I think that CR and DY are almost there, and maybe they won't need much of a push. 

TU2 and WS1 look like mostly alphas now (though it seems everyone is forgetting about homing keys).  I'd be interested in mod kits for either color.  Can we put together a standard kit that would be flexible enough for 60% - 65% - 75% - TKL?  We could just go with the mods from Jamon Core or something like that.  If we push hard maybe we can get enough interest to make MOQ for at least one of those two colors.

I'm currently down for 4 x CR 6.25u spacebars and I'm willing to get more to make that happen.  Which CR mods are short?  I can chip in on those, especially capslock and some shift caps, others as well. 

Right now I'd really like to see U9 R4 1.25u happen and could definitely use some help there.  Unfortunately, U9 capslock and spacebar look like longshots at this point.

Nice.  I'm down for about the same number of R4 1u.  I think that's close to MOQ, and I'd be willing to split the difference with everyone else.

What other U9 blanks are you looking for?  I'd really like to see R4 1.25u happen.  That's about a third of the way.

I think that CR and DY are almost there, and maybe they won't need much of a push. 

Here's the current quantities for each color's mods:

CR Mods

R1 2u - 22
R2 1.5u - 171
R3 1.75u - 36
R3 2.25u - 18
R4 2.25u - 41
R4 2.75u - 21
R4 1.75u - 46

R4 1.25u - 226



DY Mods

R1 2u - 6
R2 1.5u - 272
R3 1.75u - 160
R3 2.25u - 137
R4 2.25u - 170
R4 2.75u - 16
R4 1.75u - 135
R4 1.25u - 75


Using a quick script I wrote, here's the progress to total (where total means > 150 per mod) for each color:

CR: 40.33%
DY: 68.25%

So, DY is doing much better. How should we build support for these? I really, really want the black blanks...

Thanks for doing this work!  I'm also very interested in CR blanks.  I think there are a few ways we could try to build support.  Here's my suggestion:

The lowest quantity mod CR caps are at about 20, so we need a minimum of 130 more commitments to the CR mod kit in order for this to happen.  I think it's about $15 to buy all of the caps that are short (including 6.25u spacebar).  So if everyone who buys in will commit to ordering two of each of those caps, we only need 65 people.

We can take this to r/mm as an informal gb.  We can ask for commitments, and then inform everyone when we've reached 65, at which point they can join the official group buy and put in their orders for the mods and whatever 1u caps they need.  Of course this all depends on everyone acting in good faith.

Two selling points:

1.  Once these mod caps meet MOQ, most staggered layouts up to TKL will be possible.  100% is sort of doable if one is willing to cheat backspace for numpad 2u caps.

2.  All standard CR alphas are near or at 1000 (not including homing caps), so it's super cheap to fill out the rest of a board.  We can work out some better numbers, but I think it comes to about $60 for TKL alphas/navs/f-row.  That's ~$90 total for a blank CR set even if you buy 2x capslock, 2x enter, etc.  Not too bad for a very unique GMK keyset.

I guess another alternative would be to bundle a CR blank mod kit with decent compatibility, and then run a GB on top of this GB.  I think it would be around $50, if it were to include enough caps for 65% - 75% -TKL.  But unfortunately that's not something that I'd be able to commit to, though I could help out with running numbers and so on.

And a final alternative would be to get a vendor to buy in.  I'm guessing that most of the big dogs (e.g. Originative) get better rates from GMK.  But maybe some of the smaller players might be interested.  Regardless, this is probably something that would need scud80's approval.

By the way-- I'm also in Boston.

I'm also interested in a full CR set. I calculated some numbers that I think are useful. But please take everything with a grain of salt because there's probably many factors I haven't considered.

Number of keycaps ordered by color: 7557 CR; 4189 WS1; 3043 N9; 3039 DY; 2044 TU2. Everything else is below 500. Since CR is highest by far, the rest of my numbers concern CR only.

Ignoring MOQ scaling, the cost of an ANSI TKL set is around 68$.

The cost to buy 150 of each keycap is $12,858. If we ignore keycaps where there are zero CR orders, the number becomes $9690. If we ignore keycaps with under 10 orders, the number becomes $7503.

The current sum of CR orders is $6577. To get all orders through, $5885 of more purchases is required. To ensure all keycaps, including ones with 0 orders currently, hit 150 MOQ, $9053 of more orders is needed. To ensure all keycaps, excluding ones with under 10 orders, hit 150 MOQ, $3755 of more orders is needed.

I think some (or many) of us have realized that for most orders to reach MOQ, we'll have to buy extra keycaps. I think there should be a way to solve this problem that is reasonably fair.

One proposal I have is to do two things (the numbers are made up, we can use different ones):
- First, lower the initial MOQ of 150. For CR, let's say we lower it to 50. This 50 will be used for scaling purposes if a keycap doesn't reach 50.
- Second, raise the price of all keycaps. For CR, let's say we increase prices by 50%. The 50% increase will help us buy keycaps that don't hit 150 MOQ. Regarding the extra 50% we spend on keycaps, we'll just get random keycaps equal in value to the 50% extra we spent.

I think this solves two things: (1) everyone will pitch in to make sure things hit MOQ, and (2) people who want extremely uncommon keycaps will still be hit by MOQ scaling, but not nearly as hard as before. Also, as we get more orders, we can reduce the 50% price increase, and maybe also further reduce the 50 initial MOQ.

Just add the caps you need in the sheet, OP will let us know what will hit moq etc. And you can see the numbers in the sheet

TKL WKL split right shift should be:


32x R1 1u

1x R4 2.25u ( left shift )
1x R4 1.75u ( split right shift )
4x R4 1.5u ( control and alt )
1x 7u spacebar

Cool!

Are we ditching CP?

Then I can change around where is needed :)

And can anyone see if I am missing something to have enough for a full set for CR and CP ( or any other top color )?  :confused:


Judging from your name and picture I'd guess you're probably missing an ISO-enter. This is especially unfortunate, since those are having kind of a hard time. For most of the other caps CR looks quite nice. Having to buy 3-5 (not needed) extras for something like the row1-2u wouldn't seem to be a biggie for an otherwise reasonably priced set... but ISO-enter lurks around at 5 caps total.

Would be nice if they stocked ErgoDox kits in CR. An IC happened last fall for such a kit, but only got like 17 responses after a couple weeks I think.

It looks like TKL hit MOQ in CR (excepting the deep dish homing caps), but the numpad doesn't have a chance. This was also an oportunity to get GMK to put a 1.25u convex spacebar mold in place, but no one really cared about it. Too bad.

April 21 Update:

There are now 5 days left in the buy, and as of this morning there were 59 different types of keys already above MOQ.  Sorry about the sheet being so slow ... the "Current Quantities" tab updates on each change which can bog it down.  Hopefully it's not too much of a pain.

Important pricing info: I have now updated the pricing formula on the sheet, so that the price displayed is what you will have to pay for the keys to reach MOQ.  Now is the time to decide whether or not you want to keep these keys in your order.  If you do not, you must delete them.  Check back a few times, because as people delete or add more keys the pricing will change for all keys that are below MOQ.

Here’s an example.  Say that you want 4 1u keys in a combination that currently has a total of 50 on the sheet.  The price per key will now show $3.78 per key.  If the buy finishes at this level, then each person would pay $3.78 per key listed in their order, but would actually receive 3 times that number, so for that line you would pay $11.34 and receive 12 keys.  If you want 4 1u keys and there are only 15 on the sheet, then you’d pay $12.60 per key ($50.40 total) and receive 40 keys.

All quantities that remain on the order sheet will be invoiced at the prices listed next weekend.  I will stop adding new people to the sheet on Tuesday, and post another update on Thursday to remind you once again to double-check your section of the sheet.  Any unpaid invoices have the potential to mess up pricing for many other people.  So please, don’t be a ****.

I really want some R1-4 1.5u for my boardwalk. Would prefer U9 or CR, but it looks like DY might be the only color that will hit MOQ for all 4 rows.

Pricing is updated to reflect what it will cost to get to MOQ.  Since you only need a couple it would be expensive, but possibly not backbreaking in CR and WS1 (I'm on both of those currently).  Price per key will drop substantially if only a few more people jump on those.

I decided I'd try some R5 and R0 keys, since they're in the green too! The only problem is that there's no R5 spacebars... is that a mistake?

In the availability sheet they sent me, there are no R5 spacebars.

The new 1.25 convex spacebars aren't doing too well, but hey.... they've just been added.

Is there a way to publicize them outside this gb? I'm sure that a new thread could help. Maybe an IC, considering that we need 1000 orders (150 per color). We could also try to make thing better by limiting the order maybe to few colors?
Has this been posted on other fan sites like deskthority, reddit, and the various reddit spinoffs?

I'm also doing posts on Reddit but that's it.  I might do a separate GB just for the 1.25u spacebar after finishing this buy up ... undecided currently.

they *will* be produced, but at the price listed on the sheet.  which, for a key that only has 5 listed, would be like $30 per key (and thus probably not worth it for you).  if you decide that the prices are too high, just delete the info on your rows.

I definitely don't mind getting extra n9 row 3 - 1.25u caps. Waiting this out...

Seems like a lot of people did.  It went from 59 types above MOQ to 38 now :(  Though there are 12 more still above 100, so those won't be too bad for people to still buy (~$2 per key).  I'm hoping that people stay in on the 1.5u R1 & R3 CR keys.  They're a bit expensive, but only two of each are needed so it's not terrible.

Also, I removed the red coloring on the order sheet for types that are at <150, since the pricing now reflects those being produced anyways.

Correction, you would be paying $1100 for 800-1000 keys (depending on the types of keys ordered). But I guess you don't need 1000 keys ;-)

I think the big takeaway here is that this is too much micromanaging for people. Having to coordinate buying extra keys for each other and such would not have been an issue if complete kits were offered to cover a variety of layouts. People forgetting about or not wanting homing keys is not an issue either is they order an alpha kit which includes them anyway.

What happens now is a cascading effect. People pulled out op homing keys, because MOQ was 50. Now I have to pay so much money for homing keys that I pulled out the TU2 alphas entirely. People who went for skeletor colors see those drop and pull out DY modifiers, etc. There are too many gaps now. I just looked it up and N9 which was doing well has also been dropping.

Some people will not adjust their order in time and get a 80 USD bill for 2 deep dish keys, As a result they will not pay and it messes up the remaining order numbers.

This was a great idea scud80, but it relied too much on people collaborating in this forum or on Discord instead of just going ahead and finance keys for each other through buying complete kits.

This group buy almost risked to fail because OP had probably too much faith in the number of orders, so it didn't accomplish what we were searching. I think that most of us, given the low prices, would have wanted something easy to order, for example alphas in one color, or a number of spacebar.
The fact that the key weren't grouped together, made it impossible to order something easily.
If I want the alphas, I should just choose one single item, I don't have the patience to choose ten different articles in ten different profiles of which I've never heard before.
How is it even possible that the spacebars didn't reach moq???
I think that this GB should be extended, that the OP should group together the different keycaps needed for example for alphas, of for modifiers, or to group together a number of spacebars, for example beige and black and n9 gray. Given the delivery cost, adding 2 eur to make another color succeed is a really small sacrifice that we must make.

As much as I want to stay in this drop, 7u spacebars costing $30-100 each (and most mods also costing way too much) is probably going to make me drop out.

As MOQ currently stands, I'd be paying ~$200 just for a CR TKL base kit, which is clearly unacceptable.

My suggestion is that OP extend this GB and potentially offer an easier way for plebs to add common kits. Even having a tab where they can copy/paste values could go a long way.

Hold on, I thought that if a particular keycap fails to hit moq, that the order doesn't go through?

If I order three of a key/colour combo that no one else wants, do I pay for all 150 of them by default?

If so that's odd.

I mean, unless I can choose to keep all 150 of them.

Is that an option?

You would get all 150 of them. The form phrases it weirdly, but the extra cost is just you having to purchase more keycaps.

I believe it's set up such that you get all 150 in the scenario you described.

I think the lesson here is that SA users are superior to GMK users!(I'm kidding.) When the op ran the same format buy with SA blanks awhile ago things went relatively smoothly.

The fact that some alphas kit failed because no one ordered the homing keys is one of the saddest and funniest thing that I'll ever see in the keycaps world. Yeah, and the box royals that destroy 200 USD keycaps is another one.

Right now I got some keys sitting on 70 MOQ, which means the pricing is acceptable to me. Chance is people will drop out last minute, increasing the price until it becomes unacceptable to me.  The only way to protect myself from this is pulling out of the GB as well, which again will cascade into other keys not making MOQ.

There are about 40 different colours. With a MOQ of 150 this means 6000 space-bars minimum. I wonder how I could ever think that this GB would succeed given that there are 200 people that actively joined this effort, when in fact 6000 were needed. The number of colours should be slimmed down, and keys should be combined in small kits.

April 24 Update:

I'm no longer adding new people to the sheet, as mentioned in the last update, so now is the time to evaluate your rows to decide if you need to delete anything.  For low quantity types, it's pretty unlikely that others will be adding more at this point if that's what you've been waiting for.

The buy won't be extended again.  Quantities took a small hit at the beginning of the week, but there are still close to 18000 in types that are above MOQ (about 3500 below its highest point).  Maybe offering kits would improve things, but it would mean *way* more work for me.  I'd either have to input all the quantities myself or code up a website/database to do it, which is above my level of interest at this time.  I'll revisit the possibility later, and if somebody else would want to work with me on that let me know.  The SP buy was much smoother because their minimum was effectively ~$60/type as opposed to ~$200/type with GMK, and there wasn't ever any "will this make MOQ" anxiety ... it was just "will this get cheap enough to be worth it".

I'll lock the sheet to edits before I go to bed Friday (10-11pm PDT).  At that point I'll deal with issues, such as people on low quantity things that couldn't be bothered to remove their quantities, or last minute changes that affect others.  Check your rows on Saturday and send me an email (@gmail.com) if something changed significantly that affects what you want to order.  I imagine most/all of the above MOQ types are fine.  I will optimistically have all the individual issues worked out this weekend so that invoices can go out starting on Monday.

As always, if you have questions send me a pm either on here/Reddit/Discord.  You can also post, though that's harder for me to keep track of whether I've responded.

Something appears to be broken, the 'current quantities' sheet indicates that there are 72x Row 3 - 1.25u caps, but on my order line, I'm seeing 17 in the 'total pieces in this combination', and the price reflects that.

I guess the current quantities sheet is out of date, though, can anybody confirm that?

I don't see those numbers for any r3 1.25u colours.
For me, CR 1.25u is 13 in both the order form and current quantity sheet.

Well looks like I'm getting a pretty much all-black set with some accent colors on R1. It's a shame this turned out the way it did.
Also looks like it's going to be prohibitively expensive for any spacebars but 6.25u.

All I wanted else was an N6 diamond cluster for my arrows. Still looking forward to getting it, will be a nice set I can throw on anything.

Same. Black alphas instead of TU2. Shame, but there's never going to be a 40% ortho coverage in GMK for this price again.

There is a simple way to run this with kits. First take a poll to see what colors people like. Then limit the choice of the user to three or four colors and a small number of kits (alphas, ansi and iso modifiers, spacebars, numpad? It's your/ our choice). If a kit reaches 150 units, than it's made.
You can keep the existing calc document, or create a new one which contains those 4 kits. Obviously combining this with your existing calc document, with the single keys, could be complicated, but if you simply make one additional calc documents which contains only the kits, then it's trivial (at least for you). The only difficulty arises is you want to combine kits with single keys, am I wrong???? Thanks for reading this :thumb:

It's times like this that I prefer the reddit format - so **** like this can be downvoted to oblivion.

There are infinite ways to structure a GB, and OP chose this one. (What fireworm did is another example.) He already stated multiple times that he does not want to put in the effort to change the format at the moment. While this format might not be to your liking, it clearly works for a lot of people. Your incessant whining isn't productive. You are welcome to build a GB on top of his or coordinate kits some other way, but judging by the multiple efforts to do so (on different platforms throughout the entire duration of this buy) that have more or less failed so far, it's not as easy or as necessary as what you might think.

Yep.  And no one can say 'you copied my colors!' with blanks.  :p

Let me tell you, it's a ton of extra work to: make kits, validate kits are compatible and cheap and useful (40's, Ergodox, Ortho, etc.), run the calcs for totals, find errors in the calcs, fix the calcs, make images for folks to understand the kits, run an IC / polling, make calls / people upset, run another IC to validate there's still enough interest, create an easier way to buy caps (shopify store / google form), work with proxies in different continents on updating their shops with your kits, collect payments, order the caps w/ your proxies in other countries, get the caps, sort the caps into the kits, THEN package them, validate orders, etc.  It's a lot of work. 

scud80's SA buy was fine; he spent a month sorting caps.  I can see why he wouldn't change anything in his GB format (there are interesting trade offs), and especially when it's already underway.

Honestly the whole format scared me away. I just wanted different split  (2.75,1.25,2.25) non curved sets for my DZ60s and banana split, but it's just insane the process to get that. Its not meant to be an insult actually, I know it sounds that way, it's just the reality of niche stuff like this. I don't know what the solution is other than a vendor selling full blank ~104 key gmk sets and people cannibalize them like I did a epbt blank set. I remember when it was so easy pre-pmk to get blanks and spaces of any color from sig plastic for super cheap you picked off a spreadsheet of stock, my guess is they made no money off that, I can't imagine gmk being that easy either which is why this is so complicated.

Will finally be able to finish off the extra function keys on my 65% with right profile key caps. I'm really anal about the keys saying what they actually so I've just got row 4 blanks on all of them. Shame about the colours though, hopefully WS1 is close enough to the 2M hyperfuse uses. Will be picking up a couple extra accent colour keys for my gaming habits, hopefully get the shine to be equal on all the keys. Also no one wants 1.25 Row 4 keys in anything that isn't black... :(

Guys, it doesn't matter all that much if they are 10 or 15% (or even more) below MOQ. It just means we will have to pay 10 or 15% (or whatever) more and get proportionally more keys.

In other words, we will collectively buy up the remaining keys to get to MOQ.

Itís a shame R3 1.25u keys are so unusual, I was hoping to cover a UT-47. That wasn't a great design decision on their part... DY was reasonable at one point but then people pulled out.

ok, i changed it.

regarding CR 1.5u row 1/3, i'm planning to front the necessary amount to keep them at 30+ each (so 5x the price ... not great but only needing 2 per set isn't terrible) unless they drop below 22, at which point i'd probably just use row 2 instead of those like i'm doing with WS1.  though if others want to help that would obviously be appreciated :)

I'm working on updates to remove quantities that people didn't take the time to do themselves.  Most people that have commented publicly have been very positive regarding this buy, but it's still a little disheartening to have so many people that couldn't even take 1 minute to delete their values.  I feel like I posted a *lot* of updates for this, and while it was a little more complicated than the usual "click button, pay money" GB it wasn't really all the complex.  Anyways, my thanks to those that have spoken in support.  It's much appreciated.

If you have further changes you want to make (additions only unless prices have changed due to edits I'm making) then send me an email at scud80@gmail.com.  I'm currently doing the changes on the "Order Form updates" and quantities are reflected in the "Current Quantities updates" tabs.  I'm incorporating changes mentioned in this thread so far.

Of note: since CR R1 1.5u has dropped to 20 currently I can't afford to support R1/R3 1.5u with personal additions.  i'm keeping mine on there unless they drop further due to changes i'm making.  they're at $10/$8 each currently.

I'll probably be sending PMs or emails if I can't tell whether or not someone is likely to be a non-payer based on the order.  I simply eliminated all orders where the actual number of pieces being paid for was more than 10x the number desired.  If you fall into this category but actually wanted to pay for these (and thus are no longer on the "Order Form updates" sheet, send me an email.

I'm working on updates to remove quantities that people didn't take the time to do themselves.  Most people that have commented publicly have been very positive regarding this buy, but it's still a little disheartening to have so many people that couldn't even take 1 minute to delete their values.  I feel like I posted a *lot* of updates for this, and while it was a little more complicated than the usual "click button, pay money" GB it wasn't really all the complex.  Anyways, my thanks to those that have spoken in support.  It's much appreciated.

Informal-ish request - since Iím basically buying up to MOQ for L9 2.25/2.75 convex spacebars, is it possible to let me know when everyone else has paid and I can adjust my amount as needed? Understand if too much work.

Gosh no - I just wanted a few sets of beige split convex spacebars to pair with a board I might do in the future, but it'll also be helpful for actual builds.

You totally need to create a WTS page on deskthority for people order the extra bars from you individually.

I think a good way to see GMK 1.25u spacebars is to ask/beg/plead Oblotzky to add them to Oblivion v2. That set should have no trouble pushing past the MOQ needed.

May 1 Update

I've done all the updates to the sheet that I think are correct.  Please check your rows on the "Order Form updates" tab of the sheet to make sure everything looks ok to you.  I removed all keys that had 10 or fewer total requested.  Also, there are 22 people whose orders are for 10 or fewer caps, and a few of these might raise prices slightly if they end up not paying.  If it's only a couple of people I'll just cover their orders myself.  I can still add caps if you need some added, in which case you should email me at scud80@gmail.com, but please no reductions unless prices have changed significantly.

I'll give everybody until Friday morning my time to check and see if it all looks good, and then I'll plan to begin invoicing on Friday evening unless further changes require checking in with people.  Thanks for your patience!

Also, a quick plug for my next project.  After this order has been placed and paid for with GMK I'm going to do a small GB for a DCS Ergodox/Planck mod set in Camping colors.  DCS is close enough to Cherry that it should look fine.  It'll be a bit over $50 (for 50 caps) if I can get 25 sets ordered.  If you don't have GMK Camping, then an additional 40-key double-shot alphanumerics kit (0-9, A-Z, 4 punctuation) will be available starting at about $30.  No regular mods/novelties/numpad/etc will be offered.  If you'd be interested in that send me a pm and I can let you know when I launch it.

probably; if you scroll to the right on your rows there's an "actual pieces" column which shows how many you'll get.  that one is rounded down, but if you have multiple types that are above the 150 tier price then you might get a couple extra due to the leftover fractions.

Spacekeys doesn't close for a month, you got plenty of time to wait and see where this buy goes. I'd rather get exactly what I want rather than some fixed set of caps. In my mind this has been the coolest idea for a GB ever and I didn't even have to talk to the 7bot AT ALL!

This group buy was a total failure. No one was able to order a full set with spacebars and homing keys.
I for one am very happy with the GB, sorry for you that you fail to see this.

Certain colors and sizes made MOQ, perhaps not the spacebars you needed. Hineybush is running a GMK spacebar GB. Have you looked into it? Perhaps he's selling what you need.

It was, quite the complicated GB buy.

Dumb question, but I gotta ask:

When it comes to placing the order, are key caps ordered in batches of round numbers (for example, if you wanted to get exactly 137 R1 Home key caps, you'd have to buy a batch of 150 units), or can the exact amount be requested?

If the former, I coooooould consider adding a few CR keycaps to my order  ;D óó but NOT if this will require extra work from scud80, whose hands must be rather full right now.

Thanks for running this GB, man.

If noone from this GB wants to sell you only the keys you are looking for, there is this option (tho it might be a bit much if you donĎt need the other keys):

https://hineybush.com/

There was also a EU proxy, donĎt think there was a dedicated homepage. Try to look here:

I just started my 1st keyboard so i missed this GB. If anyone has some extra or don't need anymore R2 R3 and R4's in 1u CR that'll be really appreciated!!
Last I heard extra 1U CR keys are still available, you could try PM'ing scud80 here or on Discord

Where do y'all get the tracking number? I still haven't received mine but I'm assuming it's because scud80 is still working through the orders?

to update, i've shipped about 80% of the orders now.  i haven't done the international ones yet, and a few USA orders are left.  gmk sent me (and mykeyboard.eu) R4 instead of 1.25u R3 CR caps, so i've been talking to them about getting them replaced but they've been a bit slow with the responses.  so if you're one of the 6 people that ordered those from me they have also not gone out yet.  i'm out of town from tomorrow until monday and will get the rest of the orders out within a few days of getting home.  i'll go ahead and send out the ones with the missing caps and just send them separately later since it's taking so long to get replacements.

Thanks for the update scud80!

Have you heard anything from myKeyboard.eu? Have they started shipping out the orders yet?

I asked them a few days ago on Discord and they said shipping would start "soon".

Really nice. I hope there will be extras, I picked up blanks for my Planck but am regretting not getting CR 1.5u blanks for my Boardwalk too.

If anyone needs any 1.5u R3 CR (black) blanks, I got 12x and only need 2x  :thumb:

Let me know if anyone have any 1.5U blanks to spare in any row. Sadly, I missed the GB and want to fill out my boardwalk.

Thanks!

I'd take a couple. I'm in the EU though, so shipping might cost more than the caps :/

Has anyone received any information about their order from MyKeyboard.EU?

EDIT: Just asked this question on Discord, apparently a bunch of the custom-ordered sets contain wrong profiles so they are currently waiting for replacement keycaps.

I asked them about the shipping yesterday and was told that GMK apparently sent more than one kit incorrectly. They are now waiting for response from GMK.

If extra's are available please let me know ... I would like to cover a hhkb with white/beige/gray color, kind of a blank OG Cherry or 9009 style

Odd that us Europeans should receive out orders weeks (maybe longer) behind our U.S counterparts considering GMK is based in Germany.  I guess Mykeyboard.eu are short-staffed or something.

Yeah, I was also hoping to beat the Yanks to it for once, alas, it wasn't meant to be. MyKeyboard.eu is a small operation apparently. However, the reason for the delay seems to be that GMK didn't deliver correct caps. Still strange that they haven't shipped anything yet.

Scud, any chance you could check with them what the actual situation is?

I believe Scudd also received some incorrect keycaps, but sent out the batches that weren't affected.  I didn't order the ones that were affected (somewhere above he mentions the ones that were), but perhaps mykeyboard are waiting to resolve this issue before sending any out.
