What a gift  :eek:  Any word on fjell pro?

Fjell Pro was supposed to be done over a year ago. I have the sample in my hands, however I realize that there is more engineering involved that I am capable of doing right now. It works at it is, however I want the mounting method to compete with all other options on the market, and that requires more work. I would say it is 60% done design-wise.

Fjell classic will do for now.  Hopefully Fjell pro one day ;)

Frantically refreshing the Mekanisk page to get in on this. In my eyes, Fjell is the gold standard for high profile 60% case aesthetics. Been wanting to get my hands on one since the original Fjell run.

No estimate price for the Fjell Pro.

Gray was available last round, so we changed the colors a bit for this round. It might return later.

Ordered a Fjell Classic Black color since there would be more keycap options to choose from but the purple just seems to stand out way more. I attempted talking to Mekanisk support, but I guess I was too late and unavailable to swap. If anyone is interested in trading before the shipment process begins, just give me a private message. Thank you.

I ended up getting the purple keyboard thanks to you! So hopefully you will be getting the black one.

also @LeandreN, I do have a pretty urgent issue regarding the case and one of the screws that came with it... (Sent images and details to support email).

One of the screws for mounting the plate/pcb has completely broken off while inside the case and I can no longer take it out. The screw diameter seems too small to extract so I'm not sure what to do with the top left side of the case being a bit loose compared to the rest of the keyboard. Hope you can somehow help me resolve this issue.

Thank you for any information you could provide.

Do you have one of those compressed air cans for cleaning a keyboard? You can use it to cool down the screw to make it contract and the easier to extract

Hello!
My landlord has told me that he has gotten an offer on his house, which I am currently "renting". Fortunately, he was able to offer another house with even better space and office options for me and Mekanisk.
The bad news; I have to move for the third time this year :/

Please have a little patience with me as I move (March).

I am slowly going through emails to reply.

Fjell

Be careful when you screw in the screws in your Fjell, they should not be overthightened.

Every Fjell is shipped within friday. Please post pictures here and Reddit, it is great exposure for Mekanisk :)

PCBs will ship as soon as I have time to pack them up from here, I am trying my best.


Replacements
There are some extra cases in production if replacements are needed, however it seems like the quality turned out to be amazing this round. Please give a little time for this to happen.


Please just ask if you have any questions!!
