you guys are all over analyzing the screws and PC stripping. I have taken my Poly 910 apart dozens of times and have no issues yet.

I'm no invalid, either. Most who know me are aware I go to the gym regularly.

There is no need to over engineer this project, just dont be an idiot and overtighten screws

Could you elaborate how different carbon fiber and polycarb plate would be? Sound properties, Which one is more bendable? Etc... is it possible for just a UHMW plate?

Edit: is there a possibility for a half plate?

Just my subjective opinion based off trying them:
Carbon fiber for tactiles. Itís firm almost like aluminum but sounds better imo.
Polycarbonate for linears. Soft and mmm nice.

That is helpful! Iíll take it into consideration. Especially since inserts wouldnít look great.
And I have seen videos of this guy deadlift, so Iíll trust his screw turning power

The kit options are just between carbon fiber or polycarbonate plates.

So it seems brass plate from the original UHMW design is out. What about the brass weight?

Really hoping that's staying.

Brass on small boards is really meh to me. Sound and feel-wise. On a TKL or larger, brass really shines with cut outs from what I've tried on my Aegis build and heard on other people's Jane v2 builds. 

I didn't see enough interest in brass compared to other plate materials, but the files are open source. If people want to put together a brass plate GB, it's relatively cheap to get them made. Even PVD finished.

Sorry it's not included in this GB.

Brass weight is there, same as in the renders. External. PVD coated. No engraving.
I toyed with different fonts and drawings for engravings. But I honestly prefer it clean. And it's cheaper this way as well.

Will it bring the cost a bit lower if the brass weight will be raw instead of pvd coated? How about sandblasted with clear coat? I'm just wondering, I don't know anything about this, really.

stepped and non stepped caps supported.
I apologize for being curt about the brass question.
Costs are only brought down a little bit by going with another brass option besides PVD finish.
And honestly, theyíre your keyboards but crappy looking brass will reflect poorly on me long after this GB is ended. I think PVD is the best way to go for corrosion and scratches.

Iím debating how to do this.
Originally it would be FCFS. But Iíve been getting friend requests and pmís from brand new GH and discord accounts with no history. And people asking to buy multiple for family and friends.
Iím aware of the likeliness of this whole thing just going to flippers. If I was doing a large run, then honestly I wouldnít even care. Some people read my rant before I edited. I meant what I said.
So Iím considering doing half private and half FCFS.

You could run it FCFS for X units, but only accept the first X people who meet the criteria of being legitimate members of the Reddit/GH mk community?  Users don't have to be like mega-active or whatever, but at least not new accounts, etc.  You hold the rights to sell to whoever you want (and don't want).

You can already see it happening with the Leaf60's as they are being delivered.  Hitting the second hand market at markups.  I understand some markup for having been able to wait out the group buy but it's something else when you have 3 of the same unbuilt kit ready to sell.

That sucks. For that reason alone it should be limited to 1 per buyer. I've never done a GB before but I'm guessing the FCFS list goes quick. Fingers crossed I get in! Please don't let all the bull**** get you down.

Argh, I don't understand why this is even happening. Leaf60 didn't even have unit max. There should be plenty to go around. I'm sure a 100+ were made. Just wait a bit and flippers won't get anything.

So Iíve joined a few Separate Alice/Alice Clones GB lately for just the PCBs.

Will there be an option for just the Case+Plate in the Gb?

If so, will that knock a few Hamiltonís off the Price? Or is the current price estimate for just the Case already?

So the original thing in my head was that this would be a la carte, like if you already had a pcb or plate or case, the new stuff is compatible, so people could pick what they want, and I would just invoice for that. Like a store.

But I can't really offer that, as the case design is really all I did. This GB will just be for a kit. Sorry.
However, it's all compatible. OG Alice plates and PCBs will work. 159's PCBs and plates will work. Maarten's PCB will work.
So along with that, I won't be offering extras. The kit options are just between carbon fiber or polycarbonate plates.
If you need extras, other cloned parts will likely work out.

What I need to know now, honestly, is if people are interested in a case made of stacked carbon fiber layers.
I've got a stack of carbon fiber plates here, and it is.....oof. I want it. I'll make it happen, but if others want it too, I'll run a concurrent buy. Turnaround will likely be even quicker.

What price range are we looking at?

It's not so much as how many units are made to be honest, its just the fact that the hobby is continuously growing and that there will always be people missing out on group buys and hoping to pick up leftovers. GMK Serika & Red Samurai are absolutely absurd and those weren't limited either. TGR Jane V2 hit $3000 before all the units even shipped. This caused a lot of curious newbies to join the recent V2 CE in hopes of getting a "$3000 board" at retail (hopefully not to flip), the day of the group buy was absolutely nuts with 400+ people staring at the group buy page before it started lol

Brass on small boards is really meh to me. Sound and feel-wise. On a TKL or larger, brass really shines with cut outs from what I've tried on my Aegis build and heard on other people's Jane v2 builds. 

I didn't see enough interest in brass compared to other plate materials, but the files are open source. If people want to put together a brass plate GB, it's relatively cheap to get them made. Even PVD finished.

Sorry it's not included in this GB.

So I understand and agree that brass is mucho sexy looking through polycarb. I really do.
But there wasn't enough interest in the answers from people who filled out the form. 

What I'll do is create another form when the GB launches specifically for the brass plate. If enough people fill it out, we'll make them.

Also, overnight shipping is not overnight in to some shipping companies, apparently. So expect the GB to drop on Friday at the EARLIEST.
I will still give notification ahead of time in this thread.

Expect a $390 price tag with plate and PCB. Full kit is the only option. Carbon fiber or polycarbonate plate.
I am doing it half private, half open to FCFS. 

And yes, i totally understand it makes me a douche to quote myself in a forum.

It's not so much as how many units are made to be honest, its just the fact that the hobby is continuously growing and that there will always be people missing out on group buys and hoping to pick up leftovers. GMK Serika & Red Samurai are absolutely absurd and those weren't limited either. TGR Jane V2 hit $3000 before all the units even shipped. This caused a lot of curious newbies to join the recent V2 CE in hopes of getting a "$3000 board" at retail (hopefully not to flip), the day of the group buy was absolutely nuts with 400+ people staring at the group buy page before it started lol

I'm ok with popular boards getting more expensive due to it's rarity and collectibility regardless of how rare or collectible it actually is. Half the fun is getting in early and seeing where it goes. What drives me nuts are the flippers who had no interest in the board, or maybe even in the hobby, that buys up whatever they can looking for some easy $$$. They artificially inflate all the prices and ruin it for everyone else in the hobby. Like I said though, I'm still new here so I don't know how much of an extent this problem is here. I just see this in other hobbies I partake in and it's quite annoying...

The Rukia Alice is made of semi-transparent polycarbonate like ice.

The UHMW Alice actually looks like Hollow mask material.
