How soft is the gasket? Does it add significant flex, or is it purely for vibration/sound dampening?

The gaskets are pretty soft, but they are only 1.5mm thin on both sides of the plate. I'd say it's mainly for sound dampening.

Is it possible to have more photos of black polycarb?

Edit: Also, could you add an option for ordering extra weight?

Here you go https://imgur.com/a/dzHCKBy

You can write a note in the last question in the form. I thought no one wants extra weights.

Do you have a sample of Mao white? That's kind of a surprise finish.

I’d really love to have stepped caps and full backspace on WKL too. The universal plate just looks too funky

I didn't even notice that... Yeah... Need stepped caps and full backspace for wkl.
Can we at least get stepped caps lock for the WKL plate? :(

i wish the wkl plate wasnt split bs only

as you have to get a universal plate for normal bs which isnt ideal

The WKL plate is meant to be used with the hotswap PCB.
Yes, it's not ideal. However, it's not possible to make it ideal for every possible layout.
There are 4 types of plates, 2 types of PCB, 3 types of top case layout. That's best we can do.
I don't think that adding a standard BS and stepped caps option would ruin the plate for the hotswap pcb, i've tested before and it works just fine.
Also, the Tokyo 60 has a stepped cutout

As so many people asked, dedicated WKL plate can be available, but only in black/clear PC.
You can write a note in the last question in the order form and tell me to replace the PC layout to dedicated WKL.

The current "WKL" plate is meant to be used for the hotswap PCB.
The universal plate is a must-have.
The dedicated HHKB plate is requested in the IC.
The ALPS plate is also a must-have.

I can not provide any more options guys LOL

May we know who will do the shipping?

As we're not running the GB through zFrontier (due to the CNY holiday), we'll do the shipping directly. We'll work with a DHL proxy.
The good thing is, the shipping will be much faster. zFrontier second time QC normally take one week or more.
The bad thing is, we don't have the second time QC this time. We'll do the QC more carefully tho.

Hi, I really wanted to join but a bit concerned regarding shipping to my country. Will you use a door-to-door shipping method like DHL Express or do I have to pick it up in our local post once it arrives? Customs fees and loooong processing time in our country is a bit of a mess, which is why I asked.

I hope you can provide more info on the shipping proxy that you will use. Thanks, Senter! I'm really looking forward to this!

Yes. For $275 (excluding fees and shipping) you can get everything you need to build a keyboard

Go look at the initial GB post for the leaf 80 on reddit. There’s direct comparison pictures. Otherwise there’s a lot of posts of e white and a couple mao on the leaf 80 GH thread and on reddit

Will you be putting together an order list spreadsheet?
I don’t think he’s done this before so I wouldn’t expect one. It would be helpful though.

Oh I saw that about the backspace but I assume I can't use the WKL plate with alps anyway due to different cutouts? I would need to use the alps plate and pcb and just leave a gap on the winkeys?

Will the original WKL plate still retain the cutouts (as shown in the image) that would be under the blockers as well? It’d be nice for PC cases to have it closed like the HHKB plate since it’s transparent.

Same with the “new” dedicated WKL PC plates, if you can share the design of that as well that would be great. Thanks

You can write a note in the last question in the order form and tell me to replace the PC layout to dedicated WKL.

I'm super excited for the alps support. Finally a nice case for alps!

My thoughts exactly! What setup are you planning? I hear polycarb makes boards sound better so pairing alps with that could be a good combo. I am between the PC and E-White.

I'm pretty sure I'll be buying two (pc alps and brass mx), plus another alps brass plate + pcb.  Zealio V2's are quite nice, and I'm a sucker for Split Space.  Still waffling though.

Yes, I'll use DHL Express, not the local DHL tho. Hongkong DHL is cheaper than in mainland China. All the packages will be shipped to a Hongkong DHL proxy. Then the proxy will distribute the packages to every country.
