[IC] Rukia (Alice-style) Wrist Rest in PC and Aluminum
« on: Tue, 27 October 2020, 11:27:53 »
Hi everyone, been a long time keyboard enthusiast but a first time IC/GB runner so bear with me.

Introducing...

Rukia Wrist Rest

Rukia has been one of my favorite board for awhile and I decided to make my own wrist rest and share it with the community. I receive permission and the wrist rest file directly from Jaxx already so I'll let pictures do the talking!




Materials: PC / Aluminum
Price: Depending on QTY but PC looking at $70-80 and Alu $62-72 + shipping. This is my estimate for 20 units. Apologies for higher prices than most but I do use a slightly higher price manufacture just because ease of communication/previous transactions
Time: 2-5 weeks
Color: Grayish Light Turquoise (More gray hue than Pantone below)


Details on quality/fitment:
The fit will be perfectly aligned. However, in order for aluminum to anodize, there will need to be holes for it hook and hang. Therefore, there will be 2 drill holes on the back of the wrist rest where it oxidize and liquid will drip down; resulting in tiny bleed spot as pictured below. My solution to this will be putting bump-on that will be included in the purchase.



For alice-style (non Rukia) owners, this will also kind of work for your board but with a caveat.
Rukia is an alice-style board but with slightly different bottom contour. This wristrest will still fit your alice-style board but most likely will have a slight gap. Please refer to picture below for a rukia wrist rest on a Lubrigante



Please share your thoughts and GB should be launching in the coming week! Thank you!

Wow, both look great! The alu really defines the upper bevel cut beautifully.

So count me in for PC, or Alu 🤔  I haven't decided but definitely will take one.
I heard that there's a possibility for PC to wrap? is it true? since in that case, I might just go with Alu just to be safe.

Hi! Glad to see someone followed my proto journey on Rukia discord. Yes, the first PC wrist rest they made warped slightly so I had them redo it. Hence, the PC is more expensive because the extra time factory need to ensure it'll NOT warp. PC is more prone to warping (compare to aluminum) during the process but thank god manufacture found a way to make it flat.

I'd be in for that PC. Does level of frosting on the wrist rest match that of the rukia?
Looks really close, if not spot on!

Yep the frost color is very very similar. The difference is in how it was sanded. The texture of the Rukia is very smooth while the wrist rest is less so. closest comparison would be shined gmk caps vs brand new.

Thanks for all the support.

... and I just realized I have forgotten about shipping/logistics issue for all the non-US. This might be US only w/ USPS shipping (I believe shipping to Canada will be easily $20+)
