Update! Jan 28, 2019: The set is officially going to be made. Take advantage of group buy pricing until Midnight on Feb. 3, 2019. At that point pre-order pricing will take effect.

May 4, 2019: all group buy orders are shipped. Extras avail tomorrow, Sunday May 5 2019, at 5PM EST on my site.

May 6, 2019: No 6.5u spacebars were included and I failed to realize this before I shipped the kits. I'm working on getting them.

Quote
This is Slate.

The name Slate is a reference to both the color of the set and the fact that you can mix and match this set with others for unique looks. Using the shades between 9009/Muted/OG Cherry sets and the Dolch family, this GMK keyset provides a rock solid base on which to customize.

Alongside EnjoyPBT Slate we'll be offering PB modifiers.

PB draws its inspiration from the mid-90's Packard Bell logo:

Is it 6.25u? I went back and looked after I made that post and I didnít see any size markings. Iím a noob and could have totally missed it just judging the size based on the other keys beside the space though.

*Edit*
Duh! If there are 3 space bars theyíre all different sized and the one without the size is 6.25u by default .

You're definitely set with a gray 6.25u spacebar in the base kit.

Teal spacebar may actually be 6.5u for layouts that use non standard bottom row. Thought it may be a typo at first

OP, I wish you luck with this GB, but I really was hoping for GMK, since this is a set that is made to be mixed with others, and all my other sets are GMK.

Here's hoping it runs in GMK one day as originally intended.

Please don't get offended easily, I joint the GB and simply want things to be done right. And I believe you are one of more experienced persons to pull this off.
Not at all trying to say that the color should look close to Muted, that was just for comparison.

If you treasure being straightforward, I have to plainly say that the color of this round of sample for EnjoyPBT Slate simply does not match the render:
(https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4482/24110810628_d8a3948c16_o.png)
At least to my bare naked eyes.

Well, perhaps just me and all others are happy to leave the colors stay this way despite what I have pointed out.
In order to convince me that this sample is already a qualified final for the initially intended colors, perhaps you need some photos with corrected white balance to compare against the render and the patone color plates.

Those are preliminary renders as the IC says, and weren't included in the GB phase since I know they aren't accurate. I don't have irl pantone color plates to compare, and I'm not sure if I can get 100% proper white balanced pics for you - but I'll see what I can do. Those original renders were using a tone based on the RGB values GMK gives for their 2B color chip. You can see in the below pic, the alpha tone is not identical to CC, but is slightly lighter/warmer (this is intended):

(https://i.imgur.com/fqjMQv0.jpg)

I have two rounds of samples (just legends adjusted between them) and both have met my spec as far as what I want these to look like. I've been working pretty closely with Janglad to get some proper (mostly) accurate renders done.

If all else fails, you're free to come hang out in Dayton for a day or two and check the set out yourself.

Hineybush, Thanks for posting the new renders and thanks for doing that in keyboard cases of different shades of grey.

Now I am aware of that Judging the colors alone, without the side by side comparison, makes me fall into some color optical illusion effect.

Heading into the last week of this (unless I decide an extension is needed) and we still need about ~30 orders between myself and Mykeyboard.eu for us to justify ordering out the rest of the MOQ. I'm confident we can get there, so hopefully we do!

Slate has to hit MOQ  :confused:, hope the numbers are getting up there?
Maybe get KBDfans to update to the renders instead of the 2D for some slick tease :)

I ordered a week ago. Honestly, I was expecting the alphas to be a little darker, but the latest renders make them look quite light-colored. Iím still in, but I just wanted to point out the original renders looked nicer.

The best way to tell the color is the pics compared to Muted and Dolch, imo. The new renders are pretty (95% I'd say) accurate.

I believe this pic belongs to your first round of samples. Can we expect the product of this GB to look exactly like those samples? Or have you tweaked the colors after the picture above was taken?

Yes. The 1st and 2nd sample sets i received are gonna be the same color. The only difference were some slight legend changes. Color wise nothing will change.

The legends will be the same as Grayscale/Kuro/Shiro/Royal Alpha. Slightly thinner than the sample legends, which will give a sharper, more Cherry-esque look.

This is really unfortunate, I vastly prefer Home, PgUp, PgDn, End in a column on my 65% & 75% boards. 

I mean, it's just plastic so not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things, but this change is not consistently represented.  While I do see updated kits on hineybush.com, both the OP and kbdfans have images which show the R1 End & R2 PgDn.

The modifier keys in Grayscale were all impressively not-warped, but the spacebars were all consistently warped.

Do you know if there's anything that can be done about it, or is that just the price we have to pay for keeping cost low (and having the rest of the caps be pretty much flawless)?

Seems like the warping is mostly cosmetic anyway, maybe it makes the stabs sound a little worse but it's not catastrophic. But would definitely be nice if it could be fixed.

If it's the spacebar, I'm pretty sure it's fixable with a little heat and some evenly distributed weight applied.

I did ask Wei a while back and he said it "wouldn't be an issue". I can't make any guarantees though. I'm thinking the homebrew method of a hairdryer and some books is easiest to fix at home, I don't have plans to do anything on my end with all of the orders.

Last few ePBT sets I've purchased have all had warped spacebars but I tried the hairdryer method tonight with good success. I don't think it's anything to worry about, as long as you don't mind fixing it.

Looks like KBDFans updated their IC page stating they should receive Slate at the end of the week. Is this true for you as well Hineybush?

If so, should US customers expect shipping sometime very soon? Thanks.

I was told this too. I'm estimating another week on top of his estimate to reach me. Shipping will start ASAP after that. I will be out of town in early April, so that'll likely delay things a little bit.

Yeah I noticed that, but in your project page there is no PgDn key on the Enter row and no End key on the Shift row

oh yeah. those aren't in sorry

This is really unfortunate, I vastly prefer Home, PgUp, PgDn, End in a column on my 65% & 75% boards. 

I mean, it's just plastic so not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things, but this change is not consistently represented.  While I do see updated kits on hineybush.com, both the OP and kbdfans have images which show the R1 End & R2 PgDn.

Oh wow yeah I see what you mean now. Those ones are supposed to be in the kit. I'll see if I can get that updated asap.

Where the keys included? Hoping to get a set if there are extras.

Yeah the enter and alt shade is the same. It's not quite as vivid as P2726C that I selected, but it's definitely the right shade.

I can send you a replacement B key if you'd like. I'll wait to get more info from other buyers to see if it's a widespread problem or just a one-time thing.

Got my base kit In and think it looks really good on my Pok3r but my B keycap looks to be off shape a bit. Anyone else notice this issue or is this normal?

It's an elaborate ploy to get another B for his Alice. I know because my dad works at TGR.

Maaaan wtf.. another dude has his B key the incorrect profile too. This seems to be a really isolated issue where (I'm assuming) they put the wrong profile key down before they dyesub. I can send you a new N key, but I'm not sure if I have another B key on hand atm. I'll mention this to KBDFans also and see what I can do about a replacement.

Never heard of such thing on ePBT 9009 und Grayscale.
This has been perfect, but it is a surprise how the manufacturer messed with a foreign GB with these mistakes. Hope Gokís GB is fine - even he is not native to these countries.

I just went through my base kit to check it against the kit renders, and I have found some problems.  Where I should have an R1 PgDn, I have an R2 PgDn.  I have an extra R1 End.  I am missing R2 PgUp.  I have an extra R1 Fn (there should be one of those, I have two of them).

On 2/20/19 in the group buy thread, IneffableTao asked about adding keys for Home, PgUp, PgDn, End.  You said you'd add them, but this was after the group buy ended and you didn't say anything about dropping any keys from the existing kit to do this.  Did you drop the R2 PgUp and R1 PgDn?  The renders currently on your site (and that were there when I placed my order, though I'm guessing you're going to change them, since you've already updated them to drop the 6.5U spacebar) still show an enter-row (R2) PgUp and shift-row (R1) PgDn.

Is it going to be possible to get the missing R2 PgUp and R1 PgDn?

I can guarantee it's the right kit including those keys because 1. I have an R2 PgDn in front of me here and 2. on 11/20/2018 Wei (KBDFans) confirmed to me the final kits which included those keys. I didn't drop the 6.5u spacebar, it was supposed to be included as well, sending that kit to him on 12/26/2018. I'm still trying to get a reply regarding the replacements, I feel like they're pretty busy due to non-Slate related stuff but I'll let you guys know once I know things.

I don't see an R2 PgUp on any of the keycharts for what comes in the kit, it's an R2 PgDn. Also they don't show an R1 PgDn. So I wouldn't expect it to be there.

No, I know that's what WE call R1. But Epbt calls it R4. I obviously know there's an R1 PgDn because I posted my 1800 board on this page with it there. So is he referring to the normal row numbering or the ones on the Keymaps for the kit by epbt?

My pictures are of an R2 (cherry prof) PgUp...

For reference going forward:

Red handwritten is Cherry, Black text is EPBT for the profile numbering. I've used Cherry profile numbering unless otherwise noted in my other replies.

Yep I see those now. The kit in the Imgur album in the OP of this thread is the correct final base kit, and it was posted on Dec. 26 of 2018. I can confirm the keys you're concerned about were removed (and the kit was updated to the one I posted in the Imgur album).  They were swapped out for an EPBT R2/Cherry R3 Pg Dn and EPBT R1/Cherry R4 End key. The kits on my site are pre-final, and were not the ones sent as the final kits. It's my fault for not updating the kit pictures on my site after adjusting the kit. The correct kit (same as KBDFans') is included in the Imgur album in the OP of this page as well, so it seems the discrepancy is solely on my site. I apologize for this, I assume I uploaded the wrong one to Squarespace/Shopify when I set the products up. I just updated it on the site (a bit late obviously) for proper reference, thanks for uploading the incorrect one in your reply (presumably to call me out on BS if I tried to deny it was wrong/swapped it without saying anything).

and I'm including a copy as an attachement to this post.  It shows an R2 PgUp and an R1 PgDn (in ePBT's weird numbering -- what we'd call R3 PgUp and R4 PgDn if this were a GMK/Cherry set.  Take a look at the key between the grey 1.75U Control and the red stepped 1.75U control -- there's the R2 PgUp (GMK/Cherry R3).  Take a look at the row below between the 1U Alt and 1U Fn -- there's the R1 PgDn (GMK/Cherry R4).  They were in there from the beginning of the IC, they were in the kit render on Hiney's site when I placed my order, and they're still shown in the kit Render on Hiney's site.  I hadn't looked at the render on KBDfans' site before now (I didn't order from them), but these keys are *not* included in the render shown on KBDfans site.

Yep I see those now. The kit in the Imgur album in the OP of this thread is the correct final base kit, and it was posted on Dec. 26 of 2018. I can confirm the keys you're concerned about were removed (and the kit was updated to the one I posted in the Imgur album).  They were swapped out for an EPBT R2/Cherry R3 Pg Dn and EPBT R1/Cherry R4 End key. The kits on my site are pre-final, and were not the ones sent as the final kits. It's my fault for not updating the kit pictures on my site after adjusting the kit. The correct kit (same as KBDFans') is included in the Imgur album in the OP of this page as well, so it seems the discrepancy is solely on my site. I apologize for this, I assume I uploaded the wrong one to Squarespace/Shopify when I set the products up. I just updated it on the site (a bit late obviously) for proper reference, thanks for uploading the incorrect one in your reply (presumably to call me out on BS if I tried to deny it was wrong/swapped it without saying anything).

Well, that's disappointing.  I'll email you about returning these kits for a refund.  It sounds like you need another "B" key anyway.

Sorry about it, once I get the email I'll process your refund and send you a return label. I hope this will make you B happy.

They're waiting to hear about the 6.5u spacebar stuff, and in turn I'm waiting to hear from KBDFans regarding it. IF you'd like your order to ship without the 6.5u spacebars, you can contact them to see if they can ship it sooner.

i got my set today.  Sorry to report that it's the same issues I've had in the past with ePBT.  Space bars are flat but unfortunately they are about 1mm out of spec in length, making them close to unusable.  Even with lubed zeal stabilizers they scratch and are sluggish on the way up.  Darn shame, b/c I like the colorway.  I'm glad I decided not to join the Extended group buy.  Also, I never noticed before, but they sit about 1mm higher on switches than GMK.  Not a big deal on some cases but on my Jane you they stand above the case edge and don't look as nice. 

I might try to use them on my one board that has costar stabilizers, but I now own 3 ePBT sets with the same issues and only 1 board with costar mounts.

I have the same issue with the gray 7u spacebar, unfortunately. It's like there's too much friction. Oddly enough the cyan spacebar is fine.

Will throw in that my 7u spacebar is kind of sluggish as well as some of the modifiers. I am going to attempt to tweak them at a later date. Kind of a shame that epbt still has these issues and is making me worried about the Kuro Shiro set that I have coming soon.

you can see it from the edge if you use a board outside of the case.  The mounts for the stabilizers on the space bar are too close to each other inwards(I assume as a result of shrinking). They pull the stabilizer inserts inward, against the stabilizer housing.  On my 6.25u, if you don't press it all the way in it works but with friction.  However, once you press both edges all the way in, the space bar won't return.  I have this exact same issue on ePBT forgiveness and an English purple.  Both were purchased from KBDFans, roughly 1.5 years apart.

Not sure if its the same issue that you all are reporting with your 7u spacebars, but mine seems to be quite rattly and I can't quite figure out why.  It doesn't seem to have any issues returning, however, like others have mentioned, it's just really noisy. For the record, I've used GMK, CRP, and OG Cherry 7u spacebars on the same board without issue, so this is unique to EPBT as far as I can tell.

Edit: I've already lubed the stabs themselves with 205g0, and there is no rattle with the aforementioned GMK, CRP, and Cherry spacebars.

Edit2: Checked again and the teal spacebar is just fine but the grey doesn't return completely (turns out I was incorrect before) and also rattles if pressed near the center of the spacebar. This is while using 55g linears.

This is odd to hear. I actually noticed how nice my spacebars from this set sound and how snappy they are (they feel like a Model M spacebar almost [the best spacebar ever]). I'm using them with Zeal stabs and 67g Zealios and Gateron Greens.

Are you guys using light switches? Maybe mine return because of the heavier switch spring. I'll look more closely when I get home.

Mine feels a bit better on a board with holy yoks, but the one that doesnt return correctly is on a gateron ink.  Thats not a light switch by any means.  Probably just different for each space bar, unfortunately.

Nothing's felt quite as good as pbt on my 1/60 so I've just been using gateron blanks before this set arrived.
Now it's perfect!

I checked my cyan and gray 6.25u spacebars, and I don't see any issues. I can tell that the right stab insert is ever so slightly closer to the inside wall of the stab housing, but there's still clearance on both sides. I wonder if there are slight differences in spacing among PCBs for the stabilizers. I know the stab wire length is fixed, but there is a little bit of play between the wire ends and the inserts.

Anyway, I'm just adding another data point. Sorry you have a bad experience with it.

Yeah, i figure it's just a batch thing.  I guess I could try to get a replacement but that seems like a hard thing to check for.  You would have to actually mount the keycap to a board to check.  I've tried it on 5 different boards and it hasn't worked on a single one.  That also covered 4 different types of stabilizers (GMK plate, GMK PCB screw in, Zeal, knock-off GMK).  I have way too many sets as it is, so I'm just going to sell it.  It would work fine on a costar board.

Here goes (FYI the white balance sucks):

(https://i.imgur.com/1HwUIlx.jpg)

First impression: it's a beautiful set. I got the base + ortho 40 kits. ePBT feels a bit grainy but not as coarse as the KPRepublic DSA PBT set I own. Thickness, they are more or less equal. Legends are sharp & crisp. At a glance I don't see any noticeable warping. Also, seems like there are extra keys: one 1U backspace and 1U Fn (in yellow rectangulars)?

I think my row profiles are all OK.. (Keyboard cherry profile noob here. Would appreciate if someone can help to check).

(https://i.imgur.com/yFZ8wxL.jpg)

Don't have chance to test them on a real keyboard - probably weekend.

If one ask me what can be improved, I'd like to see more contrast between the alphas and the modifiers. Perhaps make the alphas slightly brighter, or the modifiers slightly darker. Also, compared to the red & blue accents, the teal/aquamarine looks too bright. But yeah those are kinda nitpicking. All in all, I think it successfully fulfills the original goal of Slate (or Concrete). Good job Hiney for the set!

I can also confirm that my 7u spacebars on both my base kit and spacebar kit are borked. The base kit spacebar is extremely sluggish and barely goes back up while the teal spacebar is somewhat usable but is not as smooth as spacebars from other kits that I own. Tried in two keyboards one with tealios and the other with zealios and both of which have genuine cherry screw in stabs lubed with 205g0. This is really disappointing because they're the least warped ePBT spacebars out of the box that I've ever seen.

Can anything be done? Because as it stands this kit is useless to me as all my keyboards are either HHKB or Tsangan form factor.

Try heating them up and bending them into positions where the work with the stabilizers.

Sorry to see people are having issues with spacebars. I figured it may be an issue knowing how EPBT has been historically. I can confirm I tested spacebars here and there for "flatness" but not actual fitment, as I didn't have the time to do that during the packing phases. As weird as it sounds a hair dryer/heat gun is a proven method to getting them to fit better, it's up to the end user to do it though.

Post by: walie on Fri, 17 May 2019, 00:02:41
yeah I used a hair dryer to flatten ePBT spacebars, but never to bend them the other way. I'm a bit hesitant to do it as its a bit tricky to figure out exactly where its sluggish and I don't want to make it worse.

Thanks for the tip, a few tries with a hair dryer and I managed to get the spacebars to a point where its pretty usable. Its not 100% fixed, so I probably need to heat it up a few more times to get it to stick but its a lot better than what it was before.
