Good day.

Today I am honored to announce the group buy start of our community project, the Add-on Kit for OG Keycaps from vintage Cherry boards called "GMK Missing Keys".


 
This set will allow you to:

  • Convert vintage Cherry ISO sets to ANSI
  • Provide compatibility for smaller form factors (40/60/65/75/1800)
  • Convert vintage text+icon mod ANSI sets to icon mod ANSI sets
  • Act as a mod kit for obscure layout vintage boards so their alphas can be used in modern layout builds

Pricing / Vendors:

- Europe: mykeyboard.eu 44 EUR
- North America: cannonkeys.com 49 USD
- Asia: ilumkb.com 72.90 SGD

Expected Delivery: January 2020

GB Start: August 1st 2019
GB End: August 31st 2019

Thanks to pngu for doing free renders and helping gather community feedback.
Thanks to Wodan for "approving" this HADapter like Kit.
I initiated this but it quickly became pngu and my project and we are both making zero profit from this set to provide the lowest price possible and the highest number of keys possible to the community.

For people unfamiliar with OG keycaps: To obtain a full modern GMK like keycap set, you need a Cherry keyboard from the late 80s or early 90s with doubleshot keycaps, e.g. G80 or G81 and combine it with this kit.

Here is an example for you. An ebay board for 20-30 bucks which arrived at my doorstep yesterday. I removed the keycaps and cleaned them in denture tabs for about 30 minutes. With the Add-On set from this GB I can now use it on modern custom keyboards. There are also a lot of old QWERTY ISO keyboards which can be ANSIfied with this Add-On set or provide icon mods to ANSI OG keycaps.

This is what you can achieve with this GMK Missing Keys and OG keycaps: AKB-OGR

Why it lacks 7u spacebar and 1.5-1-1.5 mods?
Why not add several keys to revive the glorious unobtainable HADapter?

I have that weird g81 with crooked lower row with unusable spacebar and shifted pad printed mods.
Using this kit it’s impossible to rebuild 7u wkl set or tsangan or “hhkb” .
Is there any chance to add the 7u lower row?

Sorry, IC is over and the price has been negotiated with vendors and GMK.
This set and HADapter are based on keyboards which have a 1.5-space-1.5-7-1.5-space-1.5 bottom row (the one shown in my example images).
For all others, we can only offer the existing bottom row which is part of the set which is the most common one for modern keyboards. The bottom row measurements are the same in this kit and HADapter which also did not have a 7u spacebar.
You can get spacebars and modifiers on Originative Co. for example and there was an OG spacebar Kit by Hineybush which might have some leftovers. Not sure if that helps, though.
Sorry mate :(

Hey guys! Quick update -- we're not off to the best start, which is to be expected because this is such a busy month. Not only are there a lot of keycap sets being ran right now (12-13 to my knowledge!), but the long awaited polaris keyboard that many have been saving their money for also just went live.

The GB went live on short notice so I understand that many might have missed it, I am sorry about that and the lack of information on my part.

Luckily, we still have a lot of time - let's not miss out on this opportunity! :D

It appears we'll need some strong marketing.

Let's make it happen. Let's also get regular updates on numbers to see how we're doing.

I realize this set has a purpose and it's probably already been brought up, but it does kinda need a 7u spacebar and some 1.5 control / alt mods in R4 or R5.

The main idea is to turn an OG set into modern compat -- OG sets commonly come with 7u spacebars and 1.5u bottom rows, which is why it was skipped for this kit.
To me, it makes a lot of sense actually, but yeah, you'll always have some compromises in order to keep the kit pricing down.

At the moment, we are pretty close to MoQ. If you want, you can still buy the set. Discussing extras with vendors. Of course, every purchase helps!

I have reminded our vendors to put emphasis on this point.
Nevertheless, this is exactly what the renders are for and to my eyes, they look correct.

We are using the "old" icon mods from this comparison.
So all should be good.

I'm angry at myself for ordering only one set. I have many old HAD and HAU sets that need this.
Anyone wanting to get rid of a set, pm me please.

Given the current situation and the shear number of sets being crammed into the queue, I'm having trouble believing that it's taken over seven months to ship such a relatively small add on kit.

You'd think so, but GMK Greek Beige Add-on is facing a similar issue.

We ended the GB entry period on November 16, 2019. It's April and we still haven't gotten even close to finishing production.

GMK is overwhelmed, and it has begun to show amidst all this in their delays in responses and production.

Guess i missed the group buying phase.. but since they are still not delivered: can you tell me if any extra sets are being produced to purchase from the vendors (specifically EU)?

Or does anyone not want their order anymore? I'd take 1-2 of these kits. :)

I thought I read that they were supposed to be adding machines and help to ramp up production? We've gone from 4 months on fairly large MOQ sets to almost eight plus months. Looks like 8008 took almost eight months to ship from what I can tell. A simple beige add on in stock colors taking this long seems ridiculous.

They almost need to start limiting the number of sets they accept in any given month, or god forbid we stop cramming more rainbow puke weeb sets into the queue.  ;D

yes, that is what I am thinking.

I may turn out as our luck that this set has been delayed so much  because the WOB/BOW Icon Mod drama maybe changed the mindset of GMK production engineers.

I have received information that GMK has shipped out the set and it has arrived at our European vendor. The set is looking good and does not seem to have the issues that GMK WOB/BOW icond mods had for example.
242611-0242613-1242615-2242617-3242619-4242621-5
1. Just because the sets have arrived does not mean that they will be shipped out immediately, please be patient.
2. Our US and Asian vendor will not received their sets as quickly as the European vendor has.

it looks like GMK has fixed the issue.
I mean it can only be sth small that went wrong. according to them they have better machines now than cherry  used to have and cherry doubleshots were pretty much flawless compared wo what we have seen by GMK in the recent past.
let's hope for the best so that we can still enjoy great GMK sets in the future! in my opinion there is no keycap which comes close.

Great board! Is it a r2 or r1 cypher, I have mine but it's ansi so I'd feel bad putting my og caps, even if I easily can with missing keys.
Btw, my novatouch is complete! All bottom row caps and the caps lock have been replaced and now are all the same color and feel!

Looks great, I'll source some peroxide and try it out in a couple of days when the sun comes back out again. I noticed you put them all in a bowl, do you need to stirr up the caps every once in a while to get them evenly exposed to the sun or will it turn out fine either way?

I did it to my OG caps: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=101253.msg2786753#msg2786753

Looks great, I'll source some peroxide and try it out in a couple of days when the sun comes back out again. I noticed you put them all in a bowl, do you need to stirr up the caps every once in a while to get them evenly exposed to the sun or will it turn out fine either way?

Nah, I didn't stir it at all, just threw them in a bowl, covered with peroxide and left - some caps were up side down and still got cleaned. Tried to turn them all correctly, but air bobbles under them kept turning them back up :)

Make sure you use at least 12% - it should burn your skin on fingers in seconds (skin goes white) - that means its good :D

I tried retrobrighting mine using the sous vide method, but it took too much so in the end I just left the caps below the hot Spanish sun, and it seems to have worked.
I only used 5% peroxide however I don't know because it wasn't that yellowed or because there was a lot of sun.

I filled a zip lock bag with the caps and 3% peroxide and stuck them under a plant light in the cold Michigan winter. Took a few days of checking the color levels but they match the Classic Retro set I have and there's no yellowness. Did three sets that way and they turned out pretty nice.

The heat activating the peroxide is what works best.

Gave the caps a nice bath in ~12% peroxide for 5 hours in the midday sun yesterday and I couldn't be more happy with the results.
Aside from the shine it is tough to tell the difference between Missing Keys and OG now.

Looks great, glad to see you made them match. I know shine is desired but there's always sandblasting to add texture and remove shine.

Here's some examples of caps I've done. https://imgur.com/a/Jf8qyFx
