i'm pretty stoked to not have to devalue my pcb by not having to solder my switches in. my body runs hot and i swear it makes the iron even hotter than it should be. that is a recipe for lifting pads who can relate

I much prefer hotswap than soldering for few reason. I swap switches a lot and having desoldering without desoldering gun is just too much.
Especially when lubes goes out, and you need to re-lube the switches or stab....

Exactly, not too bad if you have a switch top opening plate (although that's still very time consuming and also doesn't help if you have BOX switches), but otherwise it's too much of a pain to desolder. I have lifted many a pad desoldering with just and iron and a solder sucker. It also takes forever.
Maybe they're waiting for gasmasks and latex to get sexy again.

I am really psyched to get this kit. I ordered the "Lake" color with solderable PCB. I plan on putting in Zilent V2's 67gr. Also I ordered the heavy industry keycap set but also I have the GMK nines on order so not sure which one I will put on the board yet. I was able to get the U-80 ordered back in mid June. The web site says orders will ship when production is finished basically. I am really looking forward to this board, maybe it will even be my "endgame" lol. I would love to hear everyone's guess on how much the production on a kit like this might take. To those of you who are more experienced in these things, if you had to speculate, when do you think the production of a kit like this will be ready to ship? From what I have seen delays seem to be the norm, so I understand why vendors avoid putting exact dates on pre-orders etc. (case in point, still waiting on the KBD8xMkII, which it seems had to do a do-over on the brass plates...)

What do ya think? :)

I'm in exactly same position - waiting for 8X MkII and new brass wieghts, then U80-A.
I asked Rama about timescales. it could be 3-4 months.
I would love to get it on Christmas, but there is possibility that it will be January.
Fingers crossed guys will run it smoothly and all will be ready for without delays, cause with delays it can hit 6 months...

Thanks for this reply. Now I can kind of conceptualize a little more realistically about when I might receive this board and not get hopes up too much. Maybe January? OK cool. I will put it out of my mind a bit and keep waiting on that 8X MKII lol  ;D

What keycaps are you pairing with a Milk U80-A?  Is GMK Bleached close enough?  The latest posts on that GB thread sound like it won't be close.

Looks bulky and oblong. The more classical, standard TKL design is really where itís at for me. Then again the only thing I like from them that isnít a t-shirt or an action figure is the M60. Thermal is actually nice too. Their ďmute-mountĒ sounds cool but most of the keyboards they produce follow a form and shaping that just ends up looking really odd most of the time. The m60 and the thermal are sleek but their larger boards tend to look like, well, tanks. Iíd much rather spend my money on something that acts as a complement to my set-up, not something that stands out like a sore thumb and dominates desk space. They really should trim up their designs.. IMO most of their products just look stupid. Just my $0.02

I don't entirely disagree with you. I entered this GB because I want a hotswap board with great build quality. The mute feature also piqued my interest. That said, I agree that the design is a bit large and round for my taste. I'm still excited for this to ship out; I just wish updates were more substantial and/or frequent.

(Attachment Link)

Yours will arrive two or three days before mine (DHL says the 16th and the Rama store says the 17th). I've never had to pay customs in the US though, so I'm not sure how that works over here (or if it's even a thing).

I need to lube the BOX black and BOX yellow switches I've been sitting on all this time so that I have something to stick in it when it arrives.

I've put SA Amber Screen on it now, but I think for keyboard this high, gmk profile would be better.

Plus now I'm seriously considering getting HyperX pudding keycaps:)

Wow, that looks great, Phinix!

I got a text message from DHL saying mine would arrive today, but the DHL tracking says tomorrow, and the Rama shopify site says the day after tomorrow. Aaaaah!  :confused:

I had a mini-panic last night because I couldn't remember if I had any stabilizers, but I apparently still have a spare set of Zeal stabs, so I'm good.

Mine is the Port color, which I haven't seen from anyone else yet, so I'll post some pictures. I'm planning on putting GMK DMG on it.

Yes, I got the initial text message that it shipped about a week ago, and then I got another one this morning.

It did indeed arrive today. Initial impression is disappointment in the rose gold weight. It is tarnished on both sides (the visible portions) and a bit on the bottom. It's more severe on the left side, but the right side is clearly a fingerprint. I'm not sure I'll be able to show this in pictures very well. I'm not super anal about stuff like that, but the shiny mirror polish is one of the major aesthetic draws of the board. Anodizing on the rest of the case looks good. There are slight scuffs on the inside and the outside of the bottom case, but they're barely noticeable and not on visible parts of the keyboard. Tape on the box was not sealed; maybe customs looked inside.

GMK DMG's purple color is dark in comparison, but I think it will be a good match.

I'll get some pictures up later tonight.

That is disappointing.  I just got a shipping notice today so mine won't be here for another week if I am lucky.  I have Milk with the silver weight and also an extra rose weight.  I will be able to do some comparison between the 2.

Pics of my port U80-A. Two pics of the tarnish on the weight. The difference in color between the DMG purple/pink and the case color isn't as drastic in person as it is in the photo.

Pics of my port U80-A. Two pics of the tarnish on the weight. The difference in color between the DMG purple/pink and the case color isn't as drastic in person as it is in the photo.

I am on the same boat as you. My weight came tarnished and scratched.
Did you alert Rama about this?
I tried their ticketing portal but it seems broken. I've tried to login with store account but it seems like you need a different registration. I submitted a ticket and now I can't complete registration to check on the ticket lol!

Keep us posted.  Mine just shipped out yesterday.  I won't see my tarnished weight for another week if I am lucky.

My weight is the same (Port U80).I wonder if it is only affecting the Rose Gold weights? Haven't seen anyone else bring up the issue with any other colour.

I have Moon version and don't think it has this tarnish. It is scratched thou.
I have two small scratches in the bottom of the weight.

Weight is VERY prone to finger prints and staining, but if i clean them a lot, it disappears. Then shows up again... would that be tarnish?

My port got tarnishes too. I thought mine was bad.. until I see this.

I contacted Rama last week and they're willing to send a replacement, but yesterday they emailed me an update saying that it looks like it's a problem with this particular batch so I assumed there're plenty of weights with this problem. They're collating the numbers and will need some time to produce the replacement.

Thanks for updating this thread.
That is good to know and at the very least, it sounds like they are willing to correct the problems.
Aside from the weight tarnishing issue, the results from anodising is very hard to fault.

I have Moon version and don't think it has this tarnish. It is scratched thou.
I have two small scratches in the bottom of the weight.

It sounds like it could be the same, but I think if you post some pictures here, you'll get more eyes to see and possibly some feedback from others.

I am surprised that the weight's finishing quality was not doubled-checked before packing and shipping.

Do the other models of Rama works have weights or is it just the U80?
