Potential update:

  • Pipe added in Ortho kit
  • a few extras added in Ergo kit

Is there any convex 2u space key in the ergo kit?

Nope.

Too bad, like I said in my previous post it would be nice for Boardwalk. Maybe add second one in the spacebar kit?

Are the vertical 2u spacebars in the Ergo Kit essentially the same mold as the horizontal spacebars in the Ortho Kit?

Also it's nice to see so many other fellow Boardwalkers here :]

The vertical 1.5u keycaps dont have a separate mold? I thought they would be like a blend between R1/R2 and R3/R4. And I guess they will also not be symmetric, so like a horizontal 1.5u R2 just rotated?
I guess it makes sense to not make a mold for 2 keys, but this is what I thought when you said "ergo molds".


BTW, why not a milkshake icon on the brass keycap? Would be more fitting imo.

Keyreative missed  a r1 1.5u, that's the "ergo mold" Biip was talking about. I don't think other molds were missing.

I mentioned it as well. I understand Colevrak is too niche to have two kits, but maybe there can be a survey for weirdo or regular Colevrak.

I'm not sure that would be possible. We won't hit MOQ that way sadly.

There would be a contrast issue with the yellow.

@biip, I've never run a GB before, so what is usually MOQ on orders? Not for the current GB (not looking to mess with any current plans), but in the future, would you support someone else running a standalone Colevrak of Weirdos?

Here's my thing: I'm a Colemak guy and I feel like 90% of GBs don't have a Colevrak option and use non-uniform profiles, which means I usually have to pass. I'm *THRILLED* you put up a Colevrak option for the regular alphas (thank you!) and will be getting it if nothing else to show my support for you putting up the option. But if I'm being honest, my alphas will probably sit in a drawer and I'll be using the Weirdos kit in a QWERTY layout because those are dope AF.

I know Colevrak for Weirdos is a niche within a niche and realistically there's no sense in you adding yet another kit; totally get it. BUT, there at least seems to be a little interest, so would you be opposed to someone running a standalone Colevrak Weirdos down the line? I see that someone's running that for GMK WoB - no idea if that will hit MOQ or even what the MOQ is (50?).

I feel very similarly on all parts. I know I don't speak for every Coleverak user, but if a GB runner decides to run with a coleverak kit, that runner could pick which alpha kit he wishes to run it with and I would buy it just because its coleverak.

I feel you on having to pass on a lot of these great kits. It's a double edge sword. On one hand I save a bunch of money. On the other hand I have to see a great set pass me by (looking at you GMK Cafe)

Are the vertical 2u spacebars in the Ergo Kit essentially the same mold as the horizontal spacebars in the Ortho Kit?

Also it's nice to see so many other fellow Boardwalkers here :]

the 2u spacebar in ortho kit is convex :thumb:

It depends on the keycaps profile and on the manufacturer.
Since I'll need new molds, the MOQs will be higher than other KAT sets.
I'll let you guys know when I'll receive the quote (which is supposed to pop today).

Will there be an ergodox kit?

Really wish the profile was KAT R3 on all of them  :(

No molds available yet.
I'll try to find a solution :thumb:

Nice!
I would be happy to pay extra for ergodox kits that are flat KAT profile. Or maybe KAM but iirc "Wraith" had shine problems?

The shine is not a problem itself. It just doesn't look great the "busy" legends Wraith has IMO, and also doesn't really fit the aesthetic of the old Sinclair keyboards.

Is it possible to include, in the baguette kit (or even all others countries kit) the missing keys that the Mac keyboard contains ?
I can't find anywhere a way to create mech keyboard that 100% match the ISO-FR Mac keyboards. Is it useless ? Does people aren't interesting in having a mech keyboard that 100% match their Macbook's keyboard ? I use to switch a lot between my apple magic keyboard and the laptop's one.
