Thanks for the reassurance on cap thickness!


Now, to approximate GMK Serika with stock colors, which white/beige and which yellow would you all suggest? If anyone else is into this idea, it might help if we coordinated our choices to help reach MOQ. Right now Iím thinking L9 and CV. But Iíve never seen those yellows in person. Would N6 be better? Hoping for some other yellow lovers out there....

Sitting here with serika, and CV is going to be the closer of the two. N6 is a tad darker. I think either would look good though and wouldn't be noticeable unless you put them side by side.
On another note, N6 is the yellow in Nautilus, so if anyone want's to help get spacebars to MOQ ...

Thanks for the input. I may go with N6 in that case. Any idea whch existing sets use CV? Trying to get a sense of how much more orange N6 leans by contrast.


As for the N6 spacebar, I can probably help with that since it would work toward the GMK Handarbeit set Iíd like to put together. Seems that set wonít likely get made, so this might be the only way to get something close. Fortunately, I think that one would work particularly well with blanks.

This is the best I could get with my phone on the difference in direct sunlight. Hope it gives a better idea. I have no idea in regards to CV though, I haven't seen a set that uses it yet.

Thanks! I think there's also a lot of people who want the spacebars kit for Nautilus. There was only one in the last re-cap :(. So hoping more people hop on board for the color.

Thatís super helpful, thanks for the comparison shots!


Which size spacebars are you hoping for in N6? Iíll add what I can to my order.

Weíre about a week into the GB period and there are currently a bit over 15000 caps on the order form, though a number of types still need some help to get to MOQ.  I will be traveling for the next 6 days; I will still be adding new people and answering questions, but it might take me a little longer than during the first week.

In the next couple days I will begin updating the ďCurrent QuantitiesĒ tab on the order sheet, probably once a day.  The tab will have a full list of all the caps that have been added to the order sheet, sorted by quantity (high to low).

A small plug for Ergodox caps:
The caps that Iím personally buying are to make Ergodox kits with CR and WS1, plus blank alphas.  For anybody else thatís interested in these, please consider adding a few extra of the Row 1 and Row 3 1.5u caps, as these will be of less interest to non-Ergodox users.  Also, Iíve currently got 2u spacebars to use for the 2u vertical keys, mainly because there is interest in 2u spacebars outside of Ergodox.  I would actually prefer to use Row 2/3 vertical 2u keys for those, but thereís currently no interest in those.  Do others prefer to use the convex keys for 2u on Ergodox?

As an ergo user, I'm happy to throw in a few extra 1.5u mods as needed. My ergo layout doesn't call for 2u vertical mods, but if we're only a few away from making MOQ on those, I'm happy to throw in those as well. 2u spacebars for the vertical mods definitely makes sense in terms of reaching MOQ; however, as far as use, I don't have experience using 2u spacebars because of what I mentioned above. 

Also, let me throw in a plug for N9 (dark grey) keys. A lot of sets use them. GMK SkIIdata, GMK Nines, GMK 9009, GMK Terminal, a few others and also the most recent one on Massdrop incorporates it as well, GMK Eclipse. I've also noticed that the dark grey from Carbon is not too far off N9. But the white and black of CR and WS1 definitely make sense too if you are needing keys to match other sets.

Are enough people buying in to make different row/colour/size combinations meet MOQ? Or doing things like buying all-R3 sets to boost numbers?

(don't have access to spreadsheet yet, but considering buying in. Would be after TU1/TU2/N9 primarily, maybe some MG/DY)

N9 is doing reasonably well and I believe should hit MOQ. TU1 and TU2 are already there by a large margin, but like I said, no one is buying homing keys. Black and white are doing well too.

This is very interesting and I'm going to buy a lot of spacebars and convex keys. Too bad that the the universally used 1.25 key isn't available as convex, I think that gmk has no mold for it (can we ask them to make it???? Surely we can purchase 1000 units or more.... Pressing the right alt is one of the more annoying gestures, since you press directly on the border of the key.

Yet I'm trying to figure out what other keys will I buy.... Perhaps a modifier set with an improbable purple color? What is your inspiration with this buy?

I think you're being overly optimistic. While I do agree with you personally and would love to have all my alts convex, we seem to be a small minority. (And some of the others that care will tell you you're doing it wrong ;) )

So grateful for this! I've been wanting something like this since LSB's Ortho Adapter Kit just before Nautilus.

I'd prefer CR for the convex caps but will switch to N9 if that gets us over MOQ.

We could probably hit 1K if we all choose the same color. What color are you most interested in?

Yeah. There are a few that I left out. I think Violent Tendencies and 1 or 2 more use N9

I'd be interested in a 1.25 convex key (I'm assuming you mean blank). Is 1000 the MOQ for new molds?

Still waiting for scud80's answer on the availability of the 1.25u convex caps, as well as the 3u convex spacebars. I could order 150 black (CR) just to hit the MOQ for those.

If the price is acceptable, we can surely buy more than one unit. The OP will decide if the interest would be bigger by making it available as blank only, or blank plus doubleshot. I think that I could be huge. Just imagine a full convex bottom row... Fantastic.

Would it be a good idea to combine all of the disparate efforts to reach MOQ on certain caps somehow? I'd be 100% supportive of getting certain caps to tip regardless of color, but if we're all moving in different directions, it's going to prove difficult.

Is there a discord channel or something similar available that we could leverage for a group effort? I'm sorry if I'm late to the game with this idea, but I really think this GB is a great opportunity to outfit some wacky layouts.

Absolutely. I think Scud80 is going to be helping in this regard in about a week's time, but I could be misinterpreting what he said.

What kind of wacky keys are you interested in pushing past MOQ?

there aren't molds for 1.25u/3u convex.  i'll ask what sort of MOQ they'd need in order to produce a mold for it, but that would likely need to be a separate after this buy concludes.

i've set up a basic discord server, which you're welcome to join for discussion/planning/coordination.  it's the first time i've set up a server so there might be some hiccups before i get all the settings nailed down.  here's the invite: https://discord.gg/AyWnAQ6

We'll wait for gmk then :-) Can you call them to have a faster answer? In my experience they answer in 3ų20 days. There's ALWAYS someone on vacation... ALWAYS  :)) :))
Obviously doing the 1.25 convex buy now would be better, because we save on shipping.

Would anybody know which stock colour would be the closest to the GMK Carbon's dark gray (modifier) colour? Also, how far off the Carbon orange is V2? When I was joining the GB I was still in the "TKL is all that I will ever use" mindset (yeah, still a noob ;) so I didn't order the spacekeys kit :-/ I'd love to get  some 2.25u/2.75u spacebars.

Curious, for quantities that doesn't hit moq, will it happen at non moq prices, or the keys will be cancelled?

for those that don't get to 150, the people interested in them will have the option to buy enough so that they get to 150.  if they'd rather not do that, then those keys won't be ordered.

I'm assuming this also holds true for the larger spacebars?

Will you also unlock the spreadsheet page that shows a sortable listing of current quantities by color and size? Would be very useful to get an idea of which of my plans are never going to work out. Then I can adjust my order according to what looks at least vaguely possible based on current orders.

You should be able to do that now. I am able to add a "Temporary Filter" to the top row, through my Google Account.

The "Current Quantities" tab in the sheet has now been updated.  I'll plan to update it at least once a day.  Note that everything is showing up twice in the list (once for the USD price and once for the Euro price).

Regarding the 1.25u convex, I'll hear back on Monday, but I will not be including it in this buy.  Even if it's something that will work out it would delay fulfillment for the current buy.  My guess is that the cost/MOQ for making a new mold is going to be fairly high (like in the 5000-10000 range in terms of MOQ), but perhaps I'm wrong.

is anyone doing only single profile? Thinking about maybe doing only R4... has anyone tried that profile? or maybe R3 and R4 only

I'll probably decide what to do on the last week of the gb

You may not have to do that depending on the color. Which color (s) are you leaning towards?

Yeah, I got the sorting working now, thanks!


As was already said, CR and WS1 are fine if thatís your thing, but since literally every single board at my workplace is a crappy rendition of WOB, I would rather type on bare switches than put black caps on my own boards.


Iím hopeful more colors will get better support. The only ďcolorfulĒ option Iíve noticed with strong backing thus far is TU2. Not my first choice, but Iíll happily jump in to help it along. I donít think my own preferences will come anywhere near MOQ as things stand, so if anyone wants help coordinating support for colors other than black and white, please speak up. Maybe if we get on the same page we can make at least a few less predictable alternatives a real possibility.

i would be up for buying some RO2 (red) and V4 (blue) caps if there's interest in that.

I'm looking at blank Skeletor set with TU2 and DY. Luv the colour scheme but hated how the characters appear.

Had some bites on Reddit but I'll try to coordinate some more interest in a separate post.

Do you need some DY modifiers? I don't mind adding some to my order.

Trying to get a full N5 blank set going, my blank blue set is getting pretty worn :))

Modifiers will probably be hard but the 1U keys are looking promising :thumb:


Rethinking the set idea. Seems like Row1 is the only one that even looks close to passing. And don't really need a bunch of Row1 keys by themselves :))
