Title: Rama Works M60-A [SHIPPED]
Post by: KingRama on Sun, 25 March 2018, 07:18:32

M60-A
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The M60-A represents the benchmark and equilibrium between function and design for us at Rama Works. The gently exaggerated design of the frame is not understated, but rather provocative. Inspiration and evolution from previous models are evident in the beautifully articulated design and the well defined aesthetic, the fingerprint of our ĎIndustrial Moderní designs. The M60-A offers a unique contender in the traditional 60% form factor.


Expertly milled down from a single piece of solid brass & aluminium to it's final shape, hand polished to a mirror finish & beadblasted to a high grit finish, then PVD coated or anodized to the perfect color.


In an effort to provide the best end-user experience available, this board requires no soldering to construct with any Cherry MX-compatible switches. The M60-A offers a USB-C connection attached to the USB Extension PCB. There will be additional PCBs also available for individual sale. The board includes in-switch RGB LEDs under the PCB, which require no installation. PCB design by Wilba.


There is also an optional interior weight for extra heft. The optional interior weight is a beadblasted brass weight which has been PVD coated. The weight adds some extra stability to the exceptionally solid build of the M60-A weighing altogether close to 2.3kg (1.6kg without the additional weight)

More and more people have been reporting issues with the pcb on their M65-a boards.  My best guess is that it is related to the other thing people are reporting. Static shock.

I was convinced it was because of the nylon base causing buildup quickly, and it might be.  But what about the silicone feet?   I was reading that rubber silicon can be conductive or not depending on how itís made.

Just wish there was a better answer for how to not fry you $400 keyboard other than remember to discharge before you sit down or run a humidifier

This is not isolated to Ramaís projects.  It happens with all of my aluminum boards.  It just happens more with my m65-a

Would using tiny rubber gaskets to stand off the plate from the top case do anything to prevent the ESD from ruining the PCB?

Would imagine you need them on both sides of the plate to not conduct through the screws. If so you wouldn't be able plug the USB seen as its hole is cut tight.

Haven't heard of any issues with Wilba's PCB's (who designed the M60 PCB) - including the Planck's with metal enclosures :)

Oh man, it sounds amazing - even without the PCB - but just waiting on until I get the full kit w/ PCB to post a typing video so all the proper resonance is there - will be tweaking internals if need be :)

Sorry, that should be reduced - as there is less air-room - not that it makes a ton of difference - still need to get the mic out and record a through samples with/without

I dont know if Rama has some himself, but there was a post on reddit last week, from guys who are making carrying cases. They follow the new releases and you can ask them weather the keyboards will fit, for example the m60-a would fit the 65% as itís a little too big for the 60%.

I have some questions, does the felt lining as shown on the early render on Instagram gonna be there? It's very nice add. And does the extra weight really matter? I've never used a keyboard that weights more than 800g (1.7lbs), I read that M60-A weights 1,5kg without the weight so it's heavy enough but i don't know, the extra wight seems nice to fill the chamber.

I believe the felt lining has been removed since it hasn't proven to make much of a difference. The weight is completely optional and up to you. I personally like more heft so I'll be opting for the weight!

It will be heavy enough without the additional weight.

We have to do some further testing once the PCB comes in, but without we've found no difference as the sound with the 4.5MM integrated already sounds really great - but if necessary it will be included if a difference can be deduced :)

Yep! The extra weight is for people who need that something more, without it it's still decently hefty!

On the purchase page it says mid 2018. A user on Reddit said July was estimated and said by rama on a discord server. Not in the discord server myself and don't know which one they meant so can't verify that myself.

Edit: Didn't see that there was a second page and answer to this already before I posted.

There is also an optional interior weight for extra heft and resonance.

I'm confused by this :o :o

Are you trying to increase the resonance?

Sorry, that should be reduced - as there is less air-room - not that it makes a ton of difference - still need to get the mic out and record a through samples with/without

Aahhhh! That makes sense. Looking forward to hearing if there is a difference :p

FWIW, legends don't matter to me. I don't look at my board when I type. As long as it's aesthetically pleasing, the plastic is just there so I have something bigger to hit than that little stem.

If you care about correct legends, it's all going to be about what layout you use.

This is the MX version of the HHKB. Both keysets you mentioned support it. When you go changing it, I doubt you'll find full support.

Yeah, nothing wrong with that. I recommend going the standard HHKB layout, as shown in the image above in xondat's post. ever since using Backspace in the HHKB layout, I can't go back to using normal backspace. I keep hitting \\\\\\\ whenever I want to backspace at school/work.

Hey, yeah! They're the same colour reference for the Anodizing, but anodized by different manufacturers - so it will most definitely vary, but they will match colourtone wise :)

You can always change up until the 20th of April! Just send an email at support@rama.works if you want to do so (can just reply to the order confirmation email) :)
SA Oblivion will defs look good with any colour M60 really since it's grey-based :)

There's a Rama TKL coming later this year which will be sold at Originative, I think? Not sure about the vendor.

I really want a Sage but so hard to find a keyset that matches with the green... and it's also not very flexible so I can't swap caps later :/

I also consider sage, it is quite unique and very good looking, but I endup choosing moon wich is way more easy to associate. Sage will go nicely with any gray/beige vintage keyset I think

it depends if you want to take a classic color or an exclusive color, black and gray are beautiful but many keyboards use these colors combination, sage is much rarer and it's perfect on the Rama m-60 imho

Yes, I'd be interested to see this as well. I'd imagine probably Moon and Kuro to be the most popular.

That's the thing. For a keyboard like M60-A which I can only afford one and it will probably not make another appearance, I want it to be an exclusive colour, but I want to be 100% sure before I pull the trigger also for the same reasons.

Yeah, Sage works super well with Black/White and beige/yellow-toned sets :) And can also be accented nicely with some colours :)

Does Rama usually do a second round? Not sure I will have the funds to make this one but maybe in the future.
 

Potentially at some point, but won't be for a longgg while - and most likely not in the same colourways.

I already bought Lake but that Moon is beautiful.

Also Rama, I know I'm getting ahead of myself, but is R2 M65-A ever going to happen? I don't need it to be soon but I'd like to know whether I should wait or scour through mechmarket.
 

It'll be back :)

Not sure if at all possible but Iíd love to see a breakdown of colours ordered, interested to see which way people have been swinging
 

From most to least ordered (so far):
Moon
Lake
Sage / Kuro (equal)
Mist
Dusk

Since I've already joined for Lake, I hope Moon makes another appearance in M65 r2 because that gray is one of the best I've seen.

YES please! The M60 looks amazing, but I've long accepted that I cannot go smaller than 65%.
Also, uh, please consider a way to hide the side screws in the R2 M65-A 😆

I ordered the GMK Samurai set and cant decide on colorway for the hkkb  :-[ Do I go with the gray/ silver for the clean af look, or the pink with rose gold back weight. I'm scared of going pink because I think it might be too much, really leaning towards the grey or silver case and getting a extra rose gold back weight. Anyone that got this set, know which color case they are getting?

IMHO I think it's not that good a match, the Dusk is a bit too "pink" to go well with the dark red of Samurai, but since I haven't seen Samurai in real life, it's hard to say if it works or not.

Second this. I hope to be able to use a SA keyset with the M60-A, but would like to see a render so as to judge whether it'll be a good match or not.

We always buy extra PCB's to stock on-hand for support/replacement related things, but these are typically not available for immediate purchase through the site. For instance we have about 30-40 spare M6-A PCB's at the moment :)

Woahh, huge turning point in your life! You're going to love it mate - we have a moon prototyping arriving before the GB closes as well (will come at the same time as the PCB's) so can't wait to show it off and do that typing video for you all :) And dw mate, the grey is legitimately very nice :D

Will you be using the same factory/ano source for your TKL board coming later this year?  I only ask because i am having trouble deciding on an m60 color and if i knew any of these colors would be possible on the TKL i may decide different. 

Specifically, i really like the Sage m60, however moon is sooooo good!  If moon were to be available on the TKL then that means i could get both of the colors i like.  :)

Hey man! Unfortunately not, the TKL will be produced through Originatives channels rather than my own - so cannot assure that they will match (although if OCO decides to go with the same colours for the M60 - the colour references will be the same) :)

Janglad made a render of SA Royalty on the M60a in the dusk colorway. (dusk master race!)


mmhhh the colors seem different, however the janglad render is beautiful, as well as the keyset.

If only I could go for more colors, I went for moon to fit my GMK laser (kobe + blocknet), but I would love this Dusk also :3 ! First world problem I guess x)
Mateeee, that's the ultimate combo - I'd be so content with that. Very much regret not getting in on laser :(

Wait KingRama, is Moon + Laser the ultimate combo or Dusk + Laser? I need to know... for science :P

Is the dusk color really that dark or is it more pink?  NEED TO KNOW.  If it looks like this, I'm changing my mind on color for it.

I made the same misinterpretation. There was an implied "in your opinion" in your question that I didn't infer from the context. Regardless, that's a really cool link with a ton of renders.

OUUFFFF tough question... I'd say Moon, but I'm a sucker for monochromes :P

OK! I just put in my order this morning... went with Mooooooon - and the extra weight!   My most expensive kb purchase (to date).  It was a tough decision cause I want ALL colors.  I'm a chicken and the price forced me to play it safe (I love the gray though so it's fine).

I know that feeling... stepping up from a CoolerMaster Masterkeys Pro S to a moon M60-a... Guess I'm doomed.

Indeed your dooooooomed! I start to join for a gray EXENT, thinking it will by my end game.. now I have it with also a lilac m65-a, and now waiting for Percent Canoe in silver/blue , CA66 in darkred, and m60 in moon  ;D

Dark red CA66 here, as well. I'm strongly considering changing my order to Moon. It's the nicest gray I've ever seen but then I'd have to wait for a different blue board for my GMK Nautilus.

@rama Should I want to change my order, do I pm you or send a support email?

Team Dark Red CA66 + Moon M60-A checking in here as well! 8)

I caved and changed it to Moon. I'll definitely miss the gorgeous Lake but I don't think I've seen a gray color done so well before. GMK Nautilus shouldn't mind being on Moon :)
 


GMK Nautilus on Moon <3 I will be doing this too!!  :-*

The plate is aluminum unless you meant the weight. There should be some picturea of the gold weight from the sage prototype, but a dusk prototype hasn't been made.

I need.

I thought it was Coniferous, but that has grey mods.

Also nice to see a Taro set in there ;)

A lot of those keyset renders look REALLY muted/faded/pastel... I wonder if the board colors will be a bit darker in person, too? 
I got a green, and I'd LOVE if it was a closer match to Nuclear Data :o

Not sure, really.  Maybe it's supposed to be GMK Penumbra with the Solarized kit?  Although the alphas look more creamy than they should if that's the case. The mods look like a rendered version of Penumbra (more greenish tint, even though IRL they are more blue and almost black).  Well hell, now it appears I have no idea.

Is that kate in the instagram video, or do you have the built sage prototype? :D

Any thoughts on how the Dusk/pink will look compared to the pink used in the TGR Jane?  For that keyboard I think pink looked by far the best, so I'm tempted to go with it here as well, but you really lose some flexibility compared to silver for sure...

You should get a moon weight to go with that, would probably look sick.

I already am in for the internal weight so maybe I will pick one up at a later date if Rama has any extra external weights. Currently my pockets beginning to run dry from all the kb purchases I have made recently.

As for GMK, I recently got into this hobby and I believe GMK only make cherry profile switches? I have tried cherry profile switches before and I didn't care for the sharp edges, or the real narrow keycap tops. So far I like DSA and I recently bought SA Solarized for the Lake M60-A, but I also really like the color palette of SA Abyss and I would assume that uniform row 3 SA would just be like a tall DSA. If y'all have any experience with uniform SA please let me know your thoughts.

I think that what you mean by "Cherry profile switches" is key caps in Cherry profile, if then, the answer is yes, GMK only manufactures Cherry key caps. SA and DSA key caps are made by Signature Plastics in the US. SA key caps in uniform profile feel close to DSA, but the taller height and larger weight makes typing on them different. Just for the record, keyboard switches are the actuators under the key caps.

Yeah I was meaning cherry profile key caps not switches. I think the Lake color will be for me; however, we will see when Rama does the typing demos with the updated moon prototype.

I would think that the KURO M60A would look really good with the LedZep key caps. Personally I like good contrast and I think you would get better results with the KURO vs the moon.

You have until the 30th to adjust the colors :) You can email support@rama.works (or better just reply to your order confirmation email) and I can adjust it :)

Hello, do you have any renders (from above and isometric) with SP SA keysets (for instance Carbon SA with Dusk, Dolch SA with Sage or Dasher SA with Lake) ?

Hello, you still don't have renders for SA keysets ? At least from above to assess color matching, like Carbon SA, Miami SA, Dasher SA with Lake, Troubled Mind SA with sage....

The easy choice would be the grey but I have yet many cnc grey cases...

Sorry for the repost, KingRama, I'm interested as to whether individual PCBs will be for sale in your store after the conclusion of the GB?

We always buy extra PCB's to stock on-hand for support/replacement related things, but these are typically not available for immediate purchase through the site. For instance we have about 30-40 spare M6-A PCB's at the moment :)

I was thinking about the possibility of the vendor no longer being able to provide a replacement pcb, say in 2-4 yrs. At this price, I'd like to know whether any alternate 60% pcbs would be a viable option, or if the design of the case makes that impossible without some kind of modification.

Rama being around in 2-4 years does not necessarily mean the pcb will still be around as well. Tbh, I had the same concerns, but then I realized the only reason I'd need a pcb is if there was some sort of manufacturing fault that caused the pcb to die out in let's say 2 years. Then again, if my garbage razer made it for 2 years, I have no reason to think that the m60a would last me any less.

The PCB's will be continued to be made, some of our products down the line will be using the exact same PCB :)

Unfortunately not, black anodisation is pretty consistent across all products (it's mainly just surface finish which changes the appearance) - it'll be same surface finish as the other samples, just black :)

That was a prototype cable, we have another which is shrouded - we're still evaluating what works best for the board - the one that was shown is super durable (however it most likely will be coupled together rather loose if we use that one)

That's great news Rama, thanks for chiming in. It definitely puts my mind at ease now :)

One last question, I'm wondering if you could chime in on what percentage of total orders include an internal weight? I don't need an exact percentage, anything off the top of your head will suffice. I'm having a hard time deciding so I figure I would just go with the popular vote.

Tbh, I had the same concerns, but then I realized the only reason I'd need a pcb is if there was some sort of manufacturing fault that caused the pcb to die out in let's say 2 years. Then again, if my garbage razer made it for 2 years, I have no reason to think that the m60a would last me any less.

I've seen a couple of people mention frying their pcb with static electric discharge. I get that pretty bad in the winter where I live, and with this being an all metal case, it seemed like something I should consider.

Also, aren't these hot swap pcbs a relatively new design? Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. But if so, the durability of the hot swap feature may not yet be proven. In which case, it might well become necessary to find a replacement.

I believe that issue was more with the nylon bottom's but I'm not up to date on M65-A stuff.

The static charge issue was with the m65a and is believed to be a result of the nylon base, which isn't a problem for this kit.

You are right in that long term consumer testing has not been done with hotswap pcbs. I would imagine, just like with everything else, there will be wear and tear over time as you take out switches and replace them. How many times of switch switching will it take until the tolerance becomes too loose and a good connection isn't made with the switch pins? I don't think anyone knows the answer to that. I would like to believe that kailh has tested this and wouldn't release this technology unless it could handle over 100 times of taking a switch out and putting it back in.

Nonetheless, Rama said he will continue supporting the pcb, and Mike from novelkeys also sells the kailh hotswap sockets indicidually. So future proofing is definitely available. My mind is at complete ease now.

Kaihua does pretty thorough stress testing on all their products. I wouldnít have any concerns with their durability.

Thanks. I actually tried to phrase my comment so as to not blame the Rama board. I don't have personal experience with it. What I do have experience with is shocking the hell out of my macbook this past winter, probably about a hundred times all together. Sometimes I feel like a walking Tesla coil. So really it's not that I have any complaint regarding Rama's design--it's my own body that gives me pause. And given that, I have to question the wisdom of getting myself an all metal board like this, as beautiful as it is. If I knew I could easily get non-proprietary replacement parts every time a minor electrical explosion burst forth from my fingertip, I might feel a little better. That being said, I really do want one, in about three different colors.

That's great news Rama, thanks for chiming in. It definitely puts my mind at ease now :)

One last question, I'm wondering if you could chime in on what percentage of total orders include an internal weight? I don't need an exact percentage, anything off the top of your head will suffice. I'm having a hard time deciding so I figure I would just go with the popular vote.

When i asked, which was end of march to be fair, but then the number was about 60%.
I thought about this for some time too. But i ended on getting the internal weight because i really like a hefty board and i wanted to make this board as luxurious as possible :D

I just placed my order 20 mins ago, didn't want to cut it to close to GB deadline and not be able to get my order in at all. Ended up watching his YouTube video and I didn't notice a huge difference in acoustics, which is what I was mostly concerned about. So I didn't get the internal weight and decided to save the money for some keycaps to go with my board :)

There are no plans to stock starter kits after the group buy, the intent was only to give a "build out of the box" experience for M60-A.

I think changing your current order would be fine. Contact Rama Works.

Hello, do you have any renders (from above and isometric) with SP SA keysets (for instance Carbon SA with Dusk, Dolch SA with Sage or Dasher SA with Lake) ?

Hello, you still don't have renders for SA keysets ? At least from above to assess color matching, like Carbon SA, Miami SA, Dasher SA with Lake, Troubled Mind SA with sage....

The easy choice would be the grey but I have yet many cnc grey cases...

Hi, when the pre-order will be closed ?  Still looking for SA renders...

The GB will conlcude some time today, probably aus time. Rama unfortunately had some unexpected family stuff coming up on the weekend, so he wasn't able to make his video or renders (I asked him for his vid over instagram and this was his response). I don't know if we will get any more renders or the video until the deadline, but I also think he has already done quite a lot, even though there wasnt a specific SA render I know of. There are still the files to do renders on your own if you really have to have them, not saying that is something you should have to do.

In fact, for my part it was more a question of color matching with SP SA sets. I have yet many dark or light grey cnc cases, a dark blue Norbauer case, the pink is too pink. So by default I may get the green one, but I really don't know what to put on ! (carbon, troubled mind, Dolch...)

Since I'm new to this, what will I have to do to program the keyboard with QMK?
Will there be some kind of repository support for this pcb, as I have seen with other boards?


Also, will a firmware download be necessary, or is it all pre-loaded?
I don't own a windows machine, so if a download is necessary, will it be available for mac/linux?

Units will ship with firmware installed and a default keymap, so people can use it immediately.

The firmware will be using QMK. There will also be a GUI configurator to change keymaps and other settings.

That actually looks really nice--thank you! Too bad they are all row 3, I really wanted to try the fully sculpted option. But this would make it a lot easier to switch the caps around for Colemak, I think.


So many set options. Do you know which ones would I need for the M60-A?

I asked them in an email what sets I need, and they replied in a day or so. Can give you the details -- it was for an other set -- but it was about 3 or three sets, and around 180$ with shipping

you need the following, if you would recreate the renders of Rama:

2 x alt = 1.5u
1 x shift = 2.25u
1 x and 1.75u
1 x space = 7u
1 x fn = 1u
1 x backspace = 1.5u

Xondat's already answered for the most part - bare in mind zFrontier also offers free shipping over $100 so the $160 there is also inclusive of that. Say $25 shipping to EU/CONUS depending on where you are, 135 for a set of that compatibility that is currently in stock (GMK leads are around 6 to 8 months now) is a really good price.

Is that GMK Pristine set as bright white as it sounds? The photos look like it, but I read a couple of reviews that complain about it being more of a dull, off-white color. Which would be fine for a lot of builds, I think, but maybe not quite matching the look of that stormtrooper set?


I know I'm being kind of particular, but I think it's warranted for a board as nice as this. Plus, you know, I can't really afford to buy 3 or 4 sets hoping for just the right shade.


Maybe I should ask this in the keycaps forum? Don't want to derail things here, but maybe there's also room for fantasizing about what look we want for the M60-A we're all waiting for now? I'd certainly like to hear what everyone else is planning.

Browse both the Pristine and Stormtrooper group buy threads, but to close this, they use a different white.

Rama's videos uses Stormtrooper.

GMK leads are around 6 to 8 months now

Where did you get info? It's still 16 weeks for new buys.
To add to that, GMK Blue on Black was delivered to the vendors in something like 4 weeks after payment.

I too got the M60-A in Lake! What keycaps and switches are you going to use in your build?

GMK LedZep and zealio switches.   Or dev/tty with kailh box navy.

Pristine is definitely more of an off-white thing than Stormtrooper. IIRC, it's got the same alpha colours as 9009.

So, I ordered the M60-A in LAKE (NAVY) color, with starter kit. Black Alphas, turquoise Zambs and other necessary kits (like Text Hobbyist, Novelties, 7U Spacebars) from SA Pulse R3 drop. And of course violet "Mitolet" kit. I hope all of this together will look great! It only remains to buy a pair of themed cables.

Rama being around in 2-4 years does not necessarily mean the pcb will still be around as well. Tbh, I had the same concerns, but then I realized the only reason I'd need a pcb is if there was some sort of manufacturing fault that caused the pcb to die out in let's say 2 years. Then again, if my garbage razer made it for 2 years, I have no reason to think that the m60a would last me any less.

I've seen a couple of people mention frying their pcb with static electric discharge. I get that pretty bad in the winter where I live, and with this being an all metal case, it seemed like something I should consider.

Also, aren't these hot swap pcbs a relatively new design? Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. But if so, the durability of the hot swap feature may not yet be proven. In which case, it might well become necessary to find a replacement.

Kaihua does pretty thorough stress testing on all their products. I wouldnít have any concerns with their durability.

According to Kaihua's own specsheets available here http://www.kailhswitch.com/uploads/201815927/PG151101S11.pdf, they are rated at a minimum of 100 cycles.

At least, yes. I would like to think they would hold up to a lot more though.

Maybe someone with more knowledge about these sockets or how kaihua came up with that number can chime in.

I was really tempted by the Mitolet. I'm sure it'll look great together. I can't wait to see all the photos of these combinations eventually.

I think that combo will look really nice. And I wish I had understood how useful that Hobbyist option was while the set was still for sale. The fact that it included enter and tab keys made it so you didn't have to buy a separate Mods or TKL option just for those keys. Kicking myself now that I missed it and finally realized that this is not a typical offering in most sets.

Really excited to show what we have coming for these M60's :D

I was expecting the grey-scale colours to be more popular, black especially - it seems the signature colours where well received and popular - I suppose there are a lot of sets which match nicely with them - also will stand out really nicely on desks :D

Nah the percentages are probably rounded, so 138 units. If you try the other values you'll get close to a whole number each time.

We have a new timeline for production to finish: Late August.

At this point we are looking at fulfilling throughout September (we will have more accurate timelines as we move along)

Yep! Just reply to your most recent order confirmation email with your new address :)

Also I always email out a week prior to shipment for people to double check their addresses as well.

These ones are a little different to the M65 feet - they just sit into one cavity whereas the M65 one's sort of pop into individual cavities - there's also a through hole on either-end and the center - so you can pop it out quite easily as well :)

Honestly, after seeing their fixed legends, which mind you some are fixed, I'm just still not impressed. The m60 is a premium kit. It's not your run of the mill tray mount GB that pop up every now on them on GH. I've already spent $400 on the kit now, I would much rather spend another $110 on a gmk set than $70 on a JTK set (keeping in mind these won't be full sets hence lower prices listed).

Anyways, this is all conjecture I guess, has Rama even confirmed that it was JTK?

I've already spent $400 on the kit now, I would much rather spend another $110 on a gmk set than $70 on a JTK set (keeping in mind these won't be full sets hence lower prices listed).

Anyways, this is all conjecture I guess, has Rama even confirmed that it was JTK?

Isn't the title of the keyset at https://rama.works/#/gmk-heavy-industry/ (https://rama.works/#/gmk-heavy-industry/) "GMK Heavy Industry"?? Maybe remove the "GMK" text from the title if the set isn't going to be GMK to avoid confusion.

That is a variation of it, the new one is actually very different with the legends etc, so will be leaving that one for now :)

Will the firmware for the M60-A be available on GitHub?
I've at least found some firmware for the M6-A (https://github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware/tree/master/keyboards/rama) that also hints to the M60-A being listed there sometime in the future.

So is there any plan on when this will happen? Would be awesome to have the ability to fully customize the keyboard.

Yes, the PCB design is based on the Zeal60 (which uses QMK) and I'm in the process of refactoring it and getting it into QMK master branch.

Right now, it's still in my QMK fork here: https://github.com/Wilba6582/qmk_firmware/tree/zeal60

Looks like a design choice, it suits his logo on the Esc key.

Maybe it's a mistake but what do I know
Yeah, it was a design choice. If you follow the link, he says it's suited with their own typeface

Nice update, Rama!

Any chance you can post an IC for heavy industry in the IC section so that we can give feedback for it seperately rather than have 2 things going on in 1 thread?

I'd second that, not after the M60 but may well be after heavy industry - this will make it difficult for me to follow!

If was honest, I would say the set looks very washed out compared to previous GMK renders.

The mods are too light, the yellow is too orange, and the typeface is too thick.

The set has lost the striking contrast it once had.   

Edit: In another photo RAMA put up the yellow is much fuller. The mods however are still far too light for me.

Nice update, Rama!

I can live with the typeface on the mods, it's not a make or break deal for me. I do agree, however, that it is just a touch too think and I think it would look much better if it was slightly thinner. For example, I think this would make a big visual difference on back space, which as it currently stands is too overwhelming and distracts from the rest of the set. I also miss the darker modifiers, but at the same time like the lighter ones too. Maybe there could be an option to sell dark modifiers as a kit?
With the yellow accents, I feel like they were designed to match the yellow on the inventory packaging. It's close, but I think it's just a bit too warm with a bit too much orange mixed in. I also think the gmk yellow was too cool, so maybe something in between with a bit less orange?

I do feel like the mods need a bit more contrast here as well from the alphas.

The alphas are great, the yellow is great.

I'm not a fan of the "backspace" legend, and would much prefer to see the actual hhkb legends as options, ie what currently says "backspace" would say "del" and what currently says "del" would be a "~`". Not sure if that was already planned, but it would make the difference in purchasing the set for me at least.

A problem with darker modifiers is that since this is dye-sub they can't use white ink. So if you want darker modifiers the letters will then have very little contrast.

Oh right, completely forgot this would be dye sub. Good call. Maybe a similar method of reverse dye sub that was used on dsa starry night could be implemented? Probably not though eh, since that set wasn't manufactured by epbt.

I have been thinking. Would it be easy to make the m60 Bluetooth? I would think that you can make a module between the pcb and usb-c bridge. This way you don't have to solder on the pcb itself and when unmodding it without leaving 'scars' on the stock contents.

I dont know if there would be enough space for that, with internal weight at least rama told me there is about 2-3mm space. The material would probably be the bigger difficulty, as probably neither alu or brass will work that well with bluetooth.

I'm not sure if this was asked before, but I couldn't find it.  I was wondering if there might be extra weight available after the GB.  I didn't buy one for mine, because I wasn't sure if I wanted or needed it, but I'm sort of regretting not ordering it now.

Yes, you are correct.  Bluetooth is not going to be able to get out of that case.  No how.  No way.  Have to be a plastic window in the back or wood or something non-metal.

I believe that the fairest thing to do would be to (option 1) refund the full order to RAMA, and RAMA later sells the board at cost.

(option 2) You can transfer the spot to someone who is interested, at cost. Ideally it should all be done at the exact cost of purchase.

Or just get the board yourself from the GB and sell on MM. Minimize the work Rama has to deal with.

At least for now you can make a clone that might look close to it.

You'll need GMK Oblivion white alphas/GMK Honeywell alphas and Oblivion Monochrome modifier kit.

there will be collaborations for other colors. This is a first classic demonstration set.

I saw that, just wasn't sure if the individual boxes would all be boxed in that or if that will just contain the main case.

Hey, yeah! So the M60 enclosure is in that main box that Kerasan posted, then the accessories are encased in a foam insert which is placed above the main box :) This will all be inside a main shipping box that we've custom made to fit everything snugly :)

Man, it looks so good...Sept can't come soon enough

Getting closer! Will provide production updates as they come !

Awesome! :thumb: And yeah +1 for switch puller.



I actually do want to design a more suited switch puller - I'll see what I can do, but am not one to rush things!


gorgeous packaging.

maximum attention to detail.

Thanks mate!! Still more packaging to come too :D

In the meantime, we'll start beginning to package all the Starter Kits so they're ready to go :)

RAMA,

Seeing all of this unfold is very exiting, you guys have done amazing work and it's obvious a lot of passion has gone into this (as with all of your projects) ó September can't come soon enough!

If I may ask one thing in regards to this photo:

My apologies if this is a silly question, but is there not a risk of the PVD coating getting scratched from rubbing against the packaging?

Also that second pic... Are you cheating on the Xiaomi Wiha with iFixit? :p

if it were so fragile, nobody would wear watches with a PVD coating. however it is a legitimate question. from my experience with the pvd there is no such risk.
if you see any unboxing of Rama products, each piece is always wrapped in a protective membrane.

Not a silly question! The hardness of the PVD coating is much higher than the plastic so it will not scratch it - however we will be doing some significant testing and throwing around to double check :P

Hahah! Of course not, the Wiha is still my favourite - using the iFixit for the bigger hex screw (Wiha didn't have the right size  :-[ )

Honestly, I don't know if I'm more excited for the M60a or for the new stabs in development.


Yeah, I'm super excited for the stabs too, super fun to mould new things :D Keen to test the next proto when it arrives so can quickly move to production!

Yeah ó the 3mm hex is the one bit missing from the Wiha kit for me. I wish there was one included.

Not Rama, but I doubt it. He's still in development stage. Personally, I'd rather it come out a bit later and have it be closer to perfect. Hopefully pricing won't be too bad either. Would be nice to have an alternative to zeal stabs which are almost prohibitively expensive. Also, since the M60 is hotswappable, it shouldn't be too big of a deal to throw the stabs in when they do come out.

Yep, all correct there! Development will be a little longer on the stabs so we won't meet it in time for the M60-A but it is super easy to swap out new ones when the time comes :)

I could be wrong but I believe atmega32u4 chips don't support USB c to USB c connections since they solely use USB 3.1. So the pcb won't recognize that port when plugged into a computer.

So far as I know the usb - A and C port size and form is usb-version agnostic, it depends what wireing the cable has. So usb 2.0 or 3.0 cables can exist in a form of usb-c.
But I might be wrong, or I just don't get the problem you are referring to.

Just wanted to confirm my understanding; we would still need to get stabs, switches, and keycaps to complete this build?

Out of curiosity, what switches are everyone getting?  I've ordered 67g zealios :)  Does anyone have recommendations for stabilisers?  Are cheap ones just as good as more expensive ones?  Will any cherry stabilisers be compatible with this?

I'd highly suggest reading/researching more about it, but generally speaking a screw in stab from gmk/genuine cherry is recommended. Cheap stabs will rattle and not sound as good. Nice choice of switches but I am going linear for this build. NOS MX black for me.

Hum, that's strange. FYI, I use the Halo stem with Clear Non LED hole Outemu top, along with Sky bottom, 68gr spring. IMO other outemu tops or the ICE bottom are not as good, as well as if I use 62gr instead of 68gr.

I compared it side by side with HP on a switch tester, not on a full board though..

Hope it will sounds good on M60-A, It's not as clacky as HP but from all outemu housing combination, the one that uses Sky bottom and Non LED top is the best IMO. One thing that I don't like, It's just feel a bit scratchy no matter how i tried to retool and lube them.

Sound is outemu housing's weakest point. It always sounds so hollow. The stem is the best thing about it so I'd say stick the stems into some retooled cherry housings.

No timeline yet unfortunately :( waiting on the latest samples (1-2 weeks) - need to get it very right before moving into moulding :P

You need PCB mount stabilizers, yes.

I love GMK screw-in stabs, but I'm a little wary of them since I read that someone shorted their board out from the screws going through the PCB hitting their metal case. Pretty sure all my boards have plenty of clearance, but still freaks me out a little bit...

That's usually if the PCB isn't designed that well. Shouldn't be a problem on this PCB in particular because:
1. Wilba designs good PCBs.
2. Pads are generally not exposed due to the kailh sockets.


If you are really worried you could just use some nylon washers.

1.  :D :blush:
2. This is single layout, so stabilizers do not overlap anything else. But also, typically the problem is overlapping with through-hole LEDs, and this has pre-assembled RGB LEDs.

Hey Rama, are there any extra internal weights being produced? Any way of getting my hands on one for my order?

another question, I would like to purchase a second PCB, any chance?

Yep! Just reply to your order email :)

Does anyone know which kind of aluminium alloy the M60-A is made from?

probably 6061/6063

6063, correct!

Try your luck at signing up for the wait list (one of the first posts on this thread) or maybe someone with that color is wanting to get out of the buy and will let you buy them out of their spot.  Good luck, man!

Just a heads up that the "rose gold" colour (I assume you mean Dusk) isn't exactly rose gold - it's more of a pink/red. Rama has posted a photo of the colour sample block at towards the bottom of page 1 of this thread, which should give you the best idea of what it looks like.

Yes, the PCB uses QMK.

If a PCB uses QMK, that implies that the code is released on github for people who want to modify it, compile it, flash it any way they choose.

So it does answer your question.

But if you want an answer from the guy who designed the PCB and writes the firmware, YES, you can do what you want.

Dielectric grease is great for stabs. Some people use 205 as well, but might be a bit more expensive.

There are many variants of Super Lube. 21030 is the one to use for stabs.

Just reply to your order email and we will see if we have allocations available :)

I read Rama's reply as "Just reply(ied) to your order email...", I'm assuming you did too. He's saying that you can reply to your original order confirmation email. I had to do that as well to change my color selection and he responded pretty quickly.

Just to confirm this, as I ordered a internal weight a couple of weeks ago. Just reply to your order confirmation email that you received after you placed your order for the m60. I just asked for an internal weight if they had any extras because it does seem to be based on allocation, as Rama mentioned.

Iíve never typed on a thick integrated plate before.  How would it affect the sound of switches?  Would it make them louder or would the rigidity dampen it?  Also the description says milled from brass and aluminum.  The plate is aluminum, correct?  Finally, would there be any room for a foam liner to dampen the sound or are the tolerances too tight?

So far there are only non integrated 5mm (4.8mm) plates, you can look up zephyr or noxary 280 prototype for the soundtests. I asked rama for the clearence for something like a sorbothane sheet and he told me there should be about 3mm clearence for something like that. And yes, plate is aluminum, only the backweight is brass afaik.

Integrated plate makes sound of switches louder.  But I have typed only on clueboard integrated plate.
Zephyr's plate dampens the sound but it's not integrated.

I got this as a pad on my workbench and have a ton leftover, planning on trying it for dampening. It's got a gentle adhesive on the back and is like 2.3mm thick so hopefully it fits. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005I58W02/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005I58W02/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

When discussing with Wilba, he told me what you will be able to fit will depend on whether you have an internal weight or not. With the weight, it will be a tight fit (most of the space available being at the back of the case)?

Gah.. got a weight.  Hopefully I can still make it fit.  I want to silence this thing as much as possible given that itís my work board.

Depending on where the weight sits in the case, you can always cut the shape of the weight out of whatever material you're using to silence the board. Then it'll sort of fill in all that empty space where the weight doesn't sit. I don't know how big the weight is in relation to the case, but even if the weight takes up most of that free room, I'd assume there's still some room for silencing material.

Rama told me the other day the last color is still in anodising. They have to ship from the factory, do QC and sorting and shipping so my guess would be mid/late October.. This is my first custom board so i dont have any reference for a timeline but im sure thats not too far off.

So excited, gotta pick a USB c cable now.

Yep!

Just a quick update, so all colors are now anodized and the packaging is on the way to our manufacturer - they will do an initial packing of the main boards and promptly sea-freight it to us.

Sea freight will take 2-3 weeks, and we'll do final assembly and packaging here then ship in batches of colour and country :) Still have to get around to posting some pictures and writing up more of an update on our site but that's where we're at right now!

Cheers :)

Haha, I've been thinking.. maybe I can create a custom wall frame and put the PCB into the frame and then hang on my wall. Just needs a small enclosure out so for the power cable and can be turned on. The PCB is art by itself! Would be a good weekend project for sure.

Most definitely. Switches like regular Cherries only have tiny holes for the LED leads to go through. I doubt youíd get a significant amount of light through those. Youíll either want a fully transparent switch or an opaque bottom that has an SMD cutout with a transparent top.

Just wondering, do we have to use transparent switches in order for the LED's to shine through?
Most definitely. Switches like regular Cherries only have tiny holes for the LED leads to go through. I doubt youíd get a significant amount of light through those. Youíll either want a fully transparent switch or an opaque bottom that has an SMD cutout with a transparent top.

Ah I see, so that limits my switch options quite a bit. It's kind of a shame since most switches with transparent housings tend to sound a bit worse.

I've used regular, non-transparent switches in a backlit RGB board in the past and no light comes through.

This may have been addressed already, but what's the deal with the Box Royals? I've been seeing a lot of discussions surrounding the tolerance levels of the box stems, cracking/stretching key caps, etc. It doesn't look like they've managed to fix the issues yet. I am going to be putting my most prized key caps on the M60 so if there's any chance at all that these switches are going to cause any damage whatsoever, I'll find new switches to put on it.

Which leads me to my next question.. I know it's largely personal preference, but what are considered to be the "best" switches these days? I'm considering Zealios/Zilents but am also thinking maybe about the normal Cherry MX Brown RGB's. Thoughts?

I never thought about this.. What clicky switches exist with transparent bottoms? I heard the box switch issue still hasn't been fixed either.

Off the top of my head, you could most likely find or make the following RGB clicky switches in my order of preference:
Kailh heavy pale blue
Kailh pro light green
aristotle stem in a clear housing (could use aliaz, zeal, otemu ice) would put these higher up but I hate having to add plastic wrap to the stems to keep the keycaps from falling off
Cherry blue
Kailh speed gold
Gateron blue
Kailh blue


Cherry RGB version of most of their switches:
http://www.epathbuy.com/product/cherry-mx-mechanical-switches/

You would probably have to do a spring swap in the blue if you wanted greens (putting a heavier spring in the blue housing)

Gateron smd bottoms that would let a lot of light through:

Thank you for the reply. I was looking at the RGB compatible Kailh switches but was not sure if they would work as the bottom housing is still opaque. Am i misunderstanding? the LED is near the bottom of the switch. Or does diffusion only happen in the tops and not the bottoms?

Also, Kailh with the pro stems have no report of cracked stems right?
Title: Re: Rama Works M60-A [INITIAL PACKING]
Post by: nerium on Mon, 15 October 2018, 14:11:46
The bottom of the switch has what is basically a window (where the LED would be below) that allows the light to travel up/through. Not every switch has this but the ones pixelpusher listed do. You can see this in the pictures of the switch.  :thumb:

Hey! The BOX Royals we are supplying are with the new adjusted stem :) We received an entire batch of the old stem design that we had to replace.

As for best switch, absolutely right that it's largely personal but my current favourite is Aliaz Silent Tactiles, been using them for the past few months and loving it!

Any additional photos from @imprevade ? (Specifically, different colors?)

His post felt like the first realistic look at the M60-A tbh.


We sent him over our Moon proto for when he was working on the KOYU launch video. We have various photos of the Sage/Moon on our blog: https://rama.works/prototype (https://rama.works/prototype)

The new adjusted stems (with the revised/smaller nubs), while better, are reportedly still problematic. I'm not sure how many people have issues vs how many do not, but the latest round of "fixed" stems are  supposedly causing stress fractures in some keycaps, which over time could crack completely, or at the very least, cause the keycaps to not fit other stems correctly anymore. There was a decent amount of drama in various MD drop discussions that seems to have died down recently.

This is the discussion on GH I just finished reading through as well.

I saw those Aliaz switches the other day, they look neat! I'll have to check them out. Thank you!!

Something definitely to be wary of, I haven't personally had any issues on my end.

Definitely check the Aliaz out! There's something about them I really like  ;D

ALSO! As we'll be shipping in a few weeks, could everyone please check that the shipping address they have used is correct? And, if you haven't included a phone number in your order, please reply to your order confirmation email with the one! DHL Express requires a phone number, so it would be best to include it! I didn't realise at the time that I had not made it compulsory at checkout :( But yes, please reply direct to order confirmation, both for adding a phone number and changing your address (this is important as it'll be added to our ticketing system!) If there's no need for any changes and everything is correct, no need to reply to the confirmation email. EDIT: You will have to log in and check on your account to see if the phone number is there or not on the order, it is not included in the order confirmation email, please check before sending a support email!


Past that, thank you all for your patience! We'll let everyone know the shipping schedules once we get the stock in so we can plan accordingly. At this stage, there's not too much to update on as we wait for the freight-shipment to come in, we'll spend some time clearing the warehouse and making space for the pallets for arrival. Everything else is ready to go on our end, with the PCB's all tested and programmed! We'll have to spend a day or so packing the internal weights/extra back weights once they arrive also.

Cheers!

Yep, the PCB is QMK compatible - the code is already in QMK master! We are also working on a GUI based configurator that will let you change the keymap instantly without needing to build QMK or install new firmware.
This will work with the firmware already installed on the shipped PCBs :)

We're drawing the default layout (most will find the default perfect for their needs)

Does Rama usually do a second round? Not sure I will have the funds to make this one but maybe in the future.
 

Potentially at some point, but won't be for a longgg while - and most likely not in the same colourways.


@Rama If less than year is considered as longgg time for between R1 and R2. That timeframe is even shorter than re-run of keycaps.

How nice of you to pull the rug from R1 buyers.

I am not in the stance of against new buyers but if you are going to make statements as such to make your keyboard seem exclusive and limited but then change it later, its kind of a bait and switch. At least thats how I see it. Had I known R2 was just going to be a year later, I might not have joined R1. Just saying.

A little confused by this, R2 will be delivering around the same time frame as R1 in a new edition - we are not rerunning the same keyboards we have already sold.

We've been committed with all our offerings to not rerun previous editions, which has been seen with our keycaps and M6 series

What's up with your hostility?  Rama busts his ass to make awesome designs that people want.  Some people were not able to get in on the first buy (myself included - luckily I was able to purchase a spot).  We aren't paying for exclusivity; we are paying for Rama's design, intellectual property, and hard work.  If you want exclusivity, go commission someone to design something custom for you and miss out on this awesome keyboard.  At least you will be spared the terrible experience of having the same keyboard as other people...

Yeah, I don't get that post at all.  No one ever said this was some limited edition super exclusive board anyway.  If anything, I've always thought that RAMA helps to make more items accessible to the community than other makers.  It's what he does.  Just assume there will be new boards and new versions of boards going forward.

I, for one, am stoked about the new colorways, and I trust Rama to determine the best timeline. I don't buy keyboard stuff as a potential moneymaker or pure collectible--I use it--though I suppose people who do treat keyboards, keycaps, switches, etc. that way might be upset about perceived increases in quantity.

I apologize for any hostility that came across as that was not the intent.

It's all good man! I'm excited to further expand on our offerings in new and exciting ways in the future, and am even more excited to see how each person who receives one of the boards to make it their own and to see how they integrate it in their own setups!

LOL should have the opening of the container with some sacrificial boards for the customs agents  :p  Eitherway, customs has all been paid for pre-arrival so should hopefully all go through pretty quickly! Will ask our freight forwarder for an ETA for delivery :)

Regardless of hostility your argument was/is weird and entitled - Rama doesn't owe anyone exclusivity, some times plans change, maybe he had not planned to run a second round for another 2 to 3 years but decided to do so for whatever perfectly valid (or not) reason he may have had. Successful products are coveted, this isn't Supreme or Yeezy or something, if he wants others to have a new iteration (or just a regular rerun) of the board then that's entirely understandable.

I don't think I can actually express how much that sort of mentality bothers me, happens a lot too - people buy something and then somehow the faux sense of exclusivity and entitlement being taken away pisses them off and creates animosity toward the creator and a product they would otherwise love and be proud of, comments like "pulling the plug on buyers" start flying out. Buy stuff you wanna buy, when you can/want to buy it. If you couldn't or didn't wanna justify buying R1, or feel you may regret it later, that's on you.

As much as I love SA, I think you gotta go Laser.  Iím not sure about Pulse black going with the gold weight.  Also, I think the blue of Laser will go better with lake than the blue of Pulse.  These are all guesses, so I could totally be wrong.

Would you mind explaining how was this being entitled? I don't think I was.

Rama said R2 wouldn't be for long time. I factored that into my purchasing decision thinking it will be 2-3 years before the next round. So not wanting to wait that long I purchased.

The availability of an item can be a factor in my purchasing decision just like price, design, color etc... You may not agree with me, thats fine, but its factor of mine.

Now that I know Rama recycles his design so soon, Koyu R2 MIGHT happen in a year's time, I am less inclined to purchase it as there are other things I could buy and purchase Koyu next year.

I am happy to continue this discussion in pm, since we are getting off track form the thread.

Nice!  I got Mist to go with Godspeed Mods and Space Cadet Alphas, but I canít decide if Iím just going to stick with normal Godspeed alphas.  I like both options so much.  The grey of the space cadet/oblivion seems less toyish.

Here you guys go! Sorry for the wait, just wanted to get the first batch out as quickly as possible, I have to think of which set to pair with this now - something black I think  :eek:

KingRama putting on a clinic for how to conduct a group buy. So stoked in anticipation for my shipping notification!
^THIS.

Thanks Rama!, Kate!, and everyone else involved in this smooth GB!
Thanks guys!! Really appreciate it, we both appreciate the kind words! A lot of other people have helped too, we had Wilba and a few friends help pack PCB's a few weeks ago :) Would be an absolute struggle without the support of everyone here and also the helping hands. Cheers!

Thanks for the dedication, Rama.

I called it...you need to design your next board and name it after Kate.

There is TGR Jane and Alice, but you have RAMA Kate.

Stay tuned!  :))  :-X
Oh my that lake color is ridiculously gorgeous! Itís making me rethink what keycaps Iím going to put on this board. :-*

I don't know how I got talked into Moon... my heart was telling me lake or sage and I should have listened!  wow!  I won't mess it up next time.

MOON looks great too.

Anyone know where I can find the latest Kuro/Black pictures?

So excited but also a little sad I couldnít find a sage/lake/rose spot to takeover.

I guess Kuro will suffice until R2!

I'll get some photos later of the other boards, just a quick snap of the KURO:

ALSO! You will have to fully screw down each of the back weight screws as when received they are not completely tightened - double check! We will have the assembly documentation out this week :)

My Moon M60-A (the first one?) has arrived! :) I've posted some pictures of the keyboard below, but just a heads up that I don't have any pictures of it assembled (sorry!) I have my last exam in 2 days and would rather spend my time studying for it than spending a few hours lubing switches :) I'm looking forward to assembling my M60-A this weekend. I'll post here and on reddit once it's done!

Also, apologies for the mediocre image quality. Everything looks so much better in person.

(https://i.imgur.com/0akuXOL.jpg)

First one! Inside the box is the chassis + PCB + feet, in addition to a RAMA USB cable and cloth. I opted not to purchase the extra weight, and I'm glad I made that decision... I was honestly so surprised how heavy the keyboard is (despite knowing the advertised weight) - it really does scream quality.

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

I think I'll end up displaying this box on a shelf above my desk. It's pretty cool.

(https://i.imgur.com/r7sRFWW.jpg)

The board looks incredible even unbuilt. In this picture it's sitting on a table with a standard black finish, to give you an idea of how Moon looks vs Kuro.

(https://imgur.com/CxUPnlA.jpg)

(https://imgur.com/hu6EspR.jpg)

The backplate produces some pretty reflections. This is just the standard moon backplate.

(https://i.imgur.com/mL0vaVN.jpg)

Finally, "you vs the guy she tells you not to worry about". My first (and only) mechanical keyboard - a Pok3r with Cherry Browns an aftermarket case. Clearly I decided to get serious and skip the mid-tier purgatory and go straight to "endgame". I think the M60-A will last me a long long time :) Will try and sell my Pok3r shortly.

As I mentioned earlier I'm aiming to build my M60-A this weekend when I have heaps of spare time. I have MOD-M switches + EPBT BoW ready to go, but I've also ordered Modern Dolch which I'll probably end up using in the future. I hope this post gets other soon-to-be owners excited for theirs to arrive! Cheers.

Layer 3 is the fun one with the controls for adjusting the backlight colour, brightness, effect and effect speed!

Im still a little confused how the RGB works ... Is "color 1 " referring to the alphas and "color 2" the mods? How would someone set per key colors? Or is it effects on all keys? I tried watching the video with the demo but couldn't really hone down where the key colors are individually set.

I wonder about Skidata+ with the color pack but it's so hard to find. Something with light blue, brown and orange. I'm thinking of Leandren's signature, though this photo is heavily edited I think:

(https://i.imgur.com/j4Slb9c.jpg)

I've got Laser waiting for mine, but I'm not sure how the purple will look. Definitely going to find a set to match the board rather than a board to match Laser cause ugh. I can't get over how good that LAKE looks.

The GUI configurator will make it more obvious what is possible... until then... each effect can use Color 1 and/or Color 2. So one effect is using Color 1 for alphas, Color 2 for mods. Another is doing a vertical gradient between Color 1 and Color 2. Some ignore Color 1 and Color 2 and are "rainbow" effects. All effects are on all keys, and there is no per-key color setting - this is design choice that I've carried through from Zeal60/Zeal65. I never intended it to be on par with a "gamer keyboard", just make the LEDs glow in between keys in colors that match the keyboard case/keycaps.

Yep! Just reply to your order email :)

Does anyone know which kind of aluminium alloy the M60-A is made from?

Hey guys! We've been writing up some guides, we'll be adding more as we move forward! The assembly documentation should be done tomorrow or so

Go check it out here: http://rama.care (http://rama.care)

There are images of the default layout that comes with the board through the link, but for ease here it is too:

Layer 3 is the fun one with the controls for adjusting the backlight colour, brightness, effect and effect speed!

First time using this layout, need to print this out.

6063, correct!

Anyone know what alloy was used for this? I can't find the information anywhere.

See above for alloy.

Thanks mate.

Yep, I've never done a GB before, mostly due to the fact a lot I've seen a done via Google docs and similar mediums, and generally feel a bit skeptical. As a first-timer, Rama really couldn't have done a better job at making the process smooth af, and the updates are massively appreciated. Rama, Kate and Wilba really go above and beyond, and I'm sure the finished product will too.

You can expect many more orders from me in the future! I just wish I could jump of the Koyu GB   ;)

So exams are all done and I had a great weekend building my M60-A! This is my first time building a keyboard, so it was pretty fun having to learn to lube switches, slowly lube each switch, and do troubleshooting! Definitely didn't expect it to take so long!

Also posted pictures on reddit but didn't get much traction :( Subreddit is more interested in memes unfortunately :p

After building it, I had a bit of trouble with keypresses not registering, but I followed the support section on RAMA's website and found it was due to the PCB bowing out slightly. Easily fixed by following instructions.

Really glad I joined this GB. I'm happy to pay the hefty price for it given that I've ended up with such a high quality daily-driver that will last me many years. I'm not a GB expert, but Rama and his team seem to have done a great job. Communication was good, the project was well managed in terms of time, and the end product is super high quality.

Future plans for my keyboard are GMK Modern Dolch - which will be my first GMK set!

Wow!!! That looks awesome, love the contrast with the switches. Looking forward to seeing that with Modern Dolch, I think you're going to love your first GMK set! I'm in for one of those too, super excited. Glad the guide was an easy follow, we'll be writing more as we move along :D

And thanks so much for the kind words man! We're working as hard as we can to get these out to everyone as quickly as possible - even bought a new machine to help aid packaging and speed things up (more on that soon!)  :p

Hey RAMA,

Super stoked to get my board! (hopefully soon!)

I was curious if you guys did any testing for ESD?  I got my M-65A about a year ago, and have already fried the PCB LEDs from ESD from when I touched the aluminum body.  Bambinoo (of suited up keycaps) posted a fix where he grounded the USB shield to the aluminum body.  Do you think something like that is necessary for the m60-a?  I really don't want to damage the PCB, but winter is coming, and the air gets dry - combined with wearing a sweater, I'm gonna be shooting sparks everywhere!

Jumping off of this, because I have absolutely no electronics experience outside of soldering switches: is there risk to putting a layer of rubber down for sound dampening IF that layer of rubber is making contact with the PCB? I would assume that this would be beneficial if anything, helping to insulate the contacts from the aluminum body, but I'm not for sure. I'll have the internal weight so I'm guessing the rubber will still touch the PCB.

I have used foam before in Zephyr/Zeal65... it's safe for the rubber/foam to touch the PCB, but I would cut 20mm circle/square holes where the LED driver ICs are located, as they get warm (or hot!) so it is best to let that heat dissipate. The LED driver ICs are located in the middle of the PCB (one is above spacebar switch, the other near U/I keys), they're the small black square shaped parts.

When I briefly had access to the M60-A prototype, I put a stack of foam strips, wider at bottom, it was kind of a wedge shape overall, mostly filling the rear of the case. FWIW if you get the internal weight, you're not going to need foam, it fills the space enough IMHO.

IIRC the M65-A pcb wasnít designed by Wilba. The Zeal60 pcb (which is what the M60 pcb is based off) hasnít given people problems like the M65 pcb. I donít think weíll have issues with our M60 pcb shorting on us.

I didn't address the ESD issue because there are conflicting opinions about even grounding the shell of the USB connector on a device (i.e. connecting the USB shell electrically to the ground wire of the USB cable, and thus the microcontroller's ground).

I have sacrificed many goats to the PCB Gods and they have blessed me with PCBs that don't spontaneously fry themselves like the M65-A PCB. But I'll go sacrifice another one just in case.

for what it's worth, I have a "non-USB grounded" m-65A as my daily driver and I haven't had any issues with it.  I would bet there are substantially more people using theirs without issue (like me) but we only hear about the problem boards.

Have you tried a different USB cable? Have you checked continuity between the chassis and the USB housing on the PCB?
That sounds like a grounding issue (Which always get worse in the dry winter season). If you're using a homemade USB cable, it might not have a frame/ground connection to your PC.

ps: Shipping email says THURSDAY! I'm so excited!
I was getting all worked up trying to figure out which switches I want to use (I've got a bunch in a drawer ready to go), I remembered this is hot-swappable! My first hot-swap board :)

Have you tried a different USB cable? Have you checked continuity between the chassis and the USB housing on the PCB?
That sounds like a grounding issue (Which always get worse in the dry winter season). If you're using a homemade USB cable, it might not have a frame/ground connection to your PC.

ps: Shipping email says THURSDAY! I'm so excited!
I was getting all worked up trying to figure out which switches I want to use (I've got a bunch in a drawer ready to go), I remembered this is hot-swappable! My first hot-swap board :)

And to be fair to the makers out there, it's not just my M65-A that has ESD problems.  It happens on my Canoe, my Tex case with a Pok3r PCB, my Norbatouch, and my E8-V1 board as well.  I normally just use a plastic or wooden case in the colder seasons.  Sucks, but I'm tired of running a humidifier 24/7 to keep from frying my boards.

Honestly, it sounds like your environment might have a tad affect. I've got m65, norbatouch, e6v2 and haven't had ESD yet. -fingers crossed-


Secondly, I love DHL express. Direct flight from Australia to UK, no bs stopovers, my sage should be arriving tomorrow.

Seconded. Iíve had an M65, a Pok3r in a TEX aluminum case and currently an e6-v2. None with ESD issues. Los Angeles area for reference.

Though I imagine it could also be a combination of poor ESD protection and environment.

No. Washers are only needed on PCBs that support multiple layouts and the hole overlaps with pads, so a screw might short the pads together.

The hot swap sockets are a little loose? For my board it seems to be most prevalent on the 5/6/7 keys.
Is this to be expected?

Also i accidentally dropped one of the rear hex keys and unable to find it, what size are they?

Not sure if you mean the sockets are loose, or the switches in the sockets.

See the guides here: https://rama.works/guides

Perhaps your PCB is not flat in the middle and switches are not inserted fully.

The four bottom screws are M4, the hex key is 3mm.

Some things haven't been finished, like that "Any" button. If you really want that now, you'll have to do it manually in QMK. Note that you'll need to hold Esc when inserting USB to clear the keymaps in memory, so that keymaps in your new firmware get used as the new defaults. I will explain this better somewhere else in the guides, just warning you (and others), if you start installing your own built QMK firmware, it might still be using the keymap already saved in memory and not the one you built.

I was like, that's weird, wonder why my PCB is bowed up... I'll just press down... blamo, right side of the hotswap socket ripped right off the PCB.  Still not sure why it happened.  The pin on the switch wasn't bent or anything.  Oh well.  I found that I can just connect it to the diode right underneath it and all is well.  Still, ima need a new one at some point.  Can't like with janky stuff on my nice boards.

Just want to chime in with everyone else and say just how amazing this board is! Incredible job, RAMA and Wilba. It was a complete joy to assemble and I love the typing experience so far.

Also huge thanks for creating that configurator. Being able to see the lighting changes in real time is amazing!

It was a pleasure to be part of this group buy and I can't be happier with the result.

I'll flex photos once I get this thing in the studio and in front of a proper camera.

As Rama requested, here is my Moon M60-A x Olivia! The build quality is second to none, and the experience of unboxing everything was a real treat. Thanks again to Rama, Kate and their team for making this happen!

Okay, these all look amazing but until I get a shipping notice for my two M60-As Iím going to go ahead and ask that every other person stop receiving, photographing, building or enjoying theirs. Thanks in advance!

Well, I broke mine.  That surely makes you feel a little bit better, right?

Wow. This is my first keyboard GB and my mind is blown.

There was so much foam, I think the keyboard could withstand being dropped from a plane.

The packaging and PCB were beautiful. The attention to detail was on another level. I had so much fun unboxing everything.

What blew me away the most was the color. I got Sage and I don't think any picture or video will ever do it justice. I am glad I stuck with it.

I am excited to build it. I got Gateron yellow switches but now i feel I should have stepped up and got some Tealios. Also I am going to need a Moon weight to go with Modern Dolch.

Well, the good thing is that you can easily try out Tealios in the future!  All hail King Rama.

7 key no workie.  Apparently I have hulk strength and my poor PCB was on the receiving end, but Rama already has a new one on the way to me.  Can you friggin believe this man?  Anywhoo...

REPRESENTING TEAM MIST.  Tried and true, too proud to pick blue (although I own pretty much everything blue there is):

Overall, some really neat builds here! Pixelpusher, I'm sure Rama will help you. The man's kindness and commitment to service is boundless. I've been hearing good things so far. Mine should arrive soon. Stoked!

I actually would love to get a silver back weight for my SAGE. Rama, is something like this doable in time?

uh... y'all got any more of those... PCBs?

Oh man.  First two flat tires in one week and I just done broke my 7 key :(

I was like, that's weird, wonder why my PCB is bowed up... I'll just press down... blamo, right side of the hotswap socket ripped right off the PCB.  Still not sure why it happened.  The pin on the switch wasn't bent or anything.  Oh well.  I found that I can just connect it to the diode right underneath it and all is well.  Still, ima need a new one at some point.  Can't like with janky stuff on my nice boards.

My hotswap sockets for no. 9 key got ripped off the PCB too. How do you connect it back? Do we have to solder the hotswap socket back to the PCB?

If you have a soldering iron and want to try putting a hotswap socket back on, then this would obviously be a quicker fix than exchanging for a new PCB. First ensure that the PCB is flat for all the other switches. It seems most of the problems people are having are due to not putting any counterforce (i.e. pushing the socket while inserting the switches). Relying on the screws to hold the PCB flat will cause the PCB to bend in the middle. The screws are for aligning the PCB and making inserting switches easier.

To solder the hotswap, it should be OK to use the solder that is already on the pad, just put it in position and push down in the middle of the hotswap's "pin" with the soldering iron tip, which should melt the solder and form a new joint. Alternate between each side until the hotswap socket is flat.


NOTE: Soldering the hotswaps, or "reflowing" the hotswap pads, is not a solution to a switch not working. The most likely causes are the switch pin being bent, or the PCB not being flat.

Thanks for the reply Wilba. Just to be sure if the sockets can still be salvaged, I have included a picture of the ripped off socket and the PCB.
I was just wondering on one side of the socket, there is a small piece of copper metal still stuck to it which I believe must have been ripped off from the PCB. How do I attach that back to the PCB?

I have also raised a support ticket through to Rama. I just hope I could get a temporary fix before a new PCB is sent over (if it can be sent over).
Thanks!

Can confirm.. I have the Inventory2 in Sage and have not found a picture that does the color justice.
