KBDFans numbers need to be updated but 12 586 / 15 000 (MOQ) atm :thumb:


MOQ on the KBDFans site is 25,000 - is that what you mean needs to be updated?
Someone apparently went up to the great philosopher Wittgenstein and said "What a lot of morons people back in the Middle Ages must have been to have looked, every morning, at the dawn and to have thought what they were seeing was the Sun going around the Earth, when every school kid knows that the Earth goes around the Sun", to which Wittgenstein replied "Yeah, but I wonder what it would have looked like if the Sun had been going around the Earth?"

I just put in my order at kbdfans and they had an option for free shipping, which was selected by default, so I went with that. Is it legit or should I have paid the $20 for DHL?

I always use free shipping. It takes like 2-3 weeks to get from China to the US though.

I was wondering whether the J keys in the Nav Kit have homing bars similar to other vim key kits?
Personally I feel the nav keys would be of more utility if the J keys included a homing bar as it would not infringe on my ability to touch type.

Don't know if it's too late to make such a change, I'm new to this whole Keyboard Community. But absolutely love this keyset and was planning for it to be my first keyset.

Sorry to hear that, but yeah, it's not too late to make any changes on the kits.
Thanks for the support tho :thumb:

Is this a change you would consider making to the nav kit? Or would it potentially increase the manufacturing cost of the nav kit to an unreasonable amount? I just wanted to know before I made my order because, I unfortunately do not see myself using the vim nav keys without a homing bar on the J key.

I just wanted to know, The reason that there is no 1.25u tap key on R3 in the nomad set was something about mold issues by EPBT?

Edit: Looking through the IC i saw this proposed at some point ant it was PERFECT! https://i.imgur.com/drSAwpn.png

There are rumours that the Koala switch GB had to be cancelled because of a supplier problem, can you confirm or deny this? I was really looking forward to those switches :(

If these don't get made that is going to be a real shame. Pretty bummed with how the whole situation turned out. Losing a very good tactile switch at half the cost of competitors was a real blow to consumers.

Idea for the future: dark gray keycaps with light gray or white legends. Extended 2048 Dark, if you will. Something akin to ePBT Slate perhaps (though with different shades of grey).

Just a random thought while window shopping.

Quote from Wei (KBDFans) :
Quote
I customized the koala switch through a friend, and then we found that the factory making fake tealios was the same as the factory of koala, but I have no evidence now, they have destroyed it. So I have to cut off the contact with them, so koala switch cancelled the order, and the T1 order that has not been shipped will also be refunded
