Just gonna leave this here..

Wow, this looks nice! Reminds me that I want to try some kind of tactile switch again.

These Alps need a home!

Let me just show what I'm using atm. It is the standard SKB60 of which I had posted pics here. The box jade switches are the updated version but I still wasn't comfortable putting GMK caps onto them. I switched to super cheap and thin Tai Hao ABS double shots. It won't be a huge loss in case the stems break. No high-end DSLR pics, just phone and bad lighting to emphasizes the dirt this SKB has already collected. I know those pics are not sexy at all, but they are honest :)

... I'll go pack some boxes now ;)

Humble-flexing with potato pics of dirty SKB with cheap TaiHao... While we thirst for our own to dirty up and do bad things to.

GO PACK BOXES  ;D ;D ;D

I don't really get how it's still possible to accept orders. Wouldn't it be better to focus on getting the first orders out and deal with extras after the GB?

I'll explaine it to you. I have gotten quite a few more cases than all of you have ordered (like mentioned a few times already). The reason for that is that I wanted to have some backup cases if some get lost on the way and that I can simply sell a few more. Selling the rest does not require me to do any sort of labor. all that happenes is someone fills out the order form and gets an invoice in return. of course this will be fullfilled after all others that have ordered before. I hope this explains why it is still possible to order.

I hope you will wait with cashing in and shipping out extras until after you're sure you don't get any (more) RMAs.

Just learning about this (newbie on Geekhack) and put in an order for an SKB75 in hopes that there are any left available! Fantastic design and would love for this to be my first build.

More and more I regret ordering only TWO SKB75 cases. :'(

Yeah, had some spare white alps lying around and laserboost was having a sale... so I learned plate design, handwiring and the art of soldering wires (much harder than switches for some reason).

And now I get to use these cool vintage keycaps from a 5140 and FK-5001

For the people who ordered the board later, we will receive it at the same time as GB boards or later?

Too lazy to read the thread? There has only been one production run, later orders are filled with extras. You may recieve it a little later depending on the order of fulfillment by PlastikSchnittstelle.

It's 20 pages of scattered conversations and non-sequiturs. I'm too lazy to read it and I joined the GB at the start.

These days I spend all my spare time with packing. In the start it turned out to be quite difficult. Went back to my spreadsheet in order to make a usefull print out just for packing. Before, I had different types of data spread over different sheets - data that I now need to be in one sheet. Now I know it is better to keep all the data in one sheet and if you need just some of it, you rather use a filter.
Will have to order more bubble wrap soon :)

Hello. Doubt this will make you feel any better but last week there was discussion regarding the Space65 on WeChat.
