[GB] HSA White on Black - Beige on Brown
« on: Mon, 04 November 2019, 08:01:53 »
HSA or HALF SA is a double shot ABS keycap profile with a glossy finish.  As the name implies, itís a shorter variation on the SA profile while still being spherical and sculpted.
It is a brand new profile created by JTK.
The keycaps come packaged in a JTK keycap tray

Just curious, why does the US have 2 different vendors for the 2 different colors?  That's a tiny bit extra on shipping cost.  Now I have to decide if I really want both colors or just one.

That is a good point regarding the split shipping.  Sorry for this! The original plan was to launch these sets as their own things in different periods.  JTK preferred to run it together.

It was actually in the prototype set that Jae received. I hope JTK was paying attention and intends to fix the error.

Seriously, would be good to know whether this error will be corrected in the final set. I'm in for WoB and might go for the BoB, too, but not with a wonky legend.

SRCLK  is not a render mistake but was a mistake in the original molds (the renders are using the cad files for the molds).  It will be taken care off!
I expect the GB to be closed down on all vendors in the next two days.  Both sets reached MOQ.  I will share the total sold numbers once I got all numbers.

Oh, I dunno. Maybe the sales numbers promised above and never delivered. Maybe a basic progress report. Some pictures of sample caps produced in the rendered colorways or a fixed SRCLK sample. Something more than nothing at all?

Sales:
WoB sold 293 and 230 extras will be stocked up across vendors. (total: 523)
BoB sold  212 and 160 extras will be stocked up across vendors. (total: 372)

Still didnt get the samples for BoB.  We were hoping to get that ready before CNY but it did not happen.  SRCLK will be fixed.  I did not see new molds for this personally yet.  Expect more updates past CNY.

Even as someone who got in on the groupbuy, it is nice to see how many extras will be stocked. Gotta have the opportunity to get these kits in people's hands to build hype for future groupbuys.

Well I don't think either of them are actually able to give an update are they? Isn't the GB runner European and both those vendors are NA? Last I heard the GB runner was waiting for samples to arrive (may 19).  I doubt at this rate that manufacturing will be finished by late June.

I would expect at this point the vendors would be in communication with the GB runner to see where they are at in the process. I know they don't have control of expediting the process, but they should have a more direct line of communication. I was more put off by DM dismissing me to another vendor (I assume the GB runner), instead of having an update or at least offering to reach out. I know they don't have final say on the caps, but they are a proxy and presumably are making money on this (while also advertising to proxy service right on their website). Novelkeys on the other hand was proactive in getting information.

Just received a new update on this.

JTK had some issues with the stems of the key caps, and are reworking the tooling slightly.

This obviously will cause another delay, but in the end it will be worthwhile.

Current estimate is late August - September for completion.

I know for three sets - GMK Sandstorm, GMK Metaverse, and GMK Frost Witch - SwitchMod opened a purchase window after the GB ended but before production finished.  They call it pre-production.  Not sure if others have done anything similar.

This is pretty standard across vendors. What I think William was asking was: can he purchase a kit from the extras before they are made available to everyone - which I believe is no.

I asked JTK for an update a while back and  they said no timeline as of yet due to the tooling being redone. They found that there were issues with the stems on the current tooling. Just have to wait to hear when the fix has been completed and tested

Mike at novelkeys seems to be in communication with JTK also. His website indicates shipping end of August, just curious if that figure is still accurate.

I can't speak for NK but going on the response JTK gave me on aug 5 I doubt it. Here's a screenshot: https://imgur.com/a/gzzIhUr

It would be nice to get an official update, but I bet the answer will be something along the lines of "refining the legends, will update when they are ready". The initial timeline was never realistic - just look at susuwatari, that was a new double shot sculpt and it was in development forever.

Trying to get a solid update here as well. From what was said above and the info I got is that the molds are still being tuned. I would estimate we are looking at December-January. If I get more concrete info I will update.

I guess no more concrete info has become available in the month since the last post?

This is such a strange group buy, with zero communication from the GB runners. Meanwhile, JTK has opened a Discord and has channels with updates for no less than nine keysets in various stages of IC and GB. Nothing on there at all about HSA, as far as I can tell. Huh.

Not likely, they haven't finished developing the moulds yet. Then they need to manufacture the keys and ship out the GB orders.

Looks like I ordered this on November 3, 2019, about a year ago, and they havenít even figured out the molds yet. And other than vague, non-committal notes on his discord thereís no communication on it. Thatís certainly a great way to lose the confidence of your buyers, which I assume is what theyíre going for at this point.

For people who were expecting the original timeline to be somewhat accurate it's disappointing yes but if you compare this to other first runs for new sculpts, it seems to be pretty standard. Take doubles shot mt3 for example (susuwatari), that was in dev forever

Covid did slow things down as well. I'm not too hung up on the time, just the lack of communication. They have tons of other products they're talking about. I think they should be letting us know how things are going on this particular set.

Just so you are aware, both kits are being held up for the same reason. There isn't really any need for both NK and Dixie to follow up. JTK are refining the moulds they use to produce the keycaps. Once they are ready, both WoB and BoB can start production (or maybe one then the other, depending on what JTK decide to do)

I appreciate that both NK and Dixie don't need to follow up, but I have gotten zero communication from Dixie (they don't even mention the set in their newsletters) and when I reached out they didn't direct me to NK but to a european vendor and said Dixie was only a proxy, so its not like they are trading off between NK of who follows up with JTK. I am not upset with Dixie for the delay but for failing to communicate.

Hi Everyone.

I want to clarify the current issues a little bit. 
JTK has been hit by the corrona virus in various ways that severly impacted their production.
Their material supplier (plastics) went bankrupt during the pandemic.  They had to source another supplier, test their quality, compare to others.  This took quite some time and hindered pretty much all JTK projects.

Besides that their main engineer who has been improving the molds also left JTK and they had to redo a lot of work because the work that was left behind on HSA was simply not up to expectations.

In terms of delivery expectations.  As NK mentioned before they are still working on perfecting the molds and are currently running sample tests.  Once those tests are completed they will move into production.  Without those tests completed they do not want to set any random expectation.

A lot of love and passion went into this project and everyone involved wants to see perfect keycaps so I am certain the extra time on this project will be worth the wait.

I'm sorry to bring you so much trouble, because 2020 is a very difficult year for us. First of all, the global virus has led to the shutdown of our factory on a large scale. In addition, the material manufacturers we have cooperated with for many years have not survived this disaster, which leads to the closure of the company. As a result, we have to replace the material manufacturers, which will give us JTK CA set production (JTK vostok).There are many unknown problems and troubles.

With regard to HSA, the problem we are facing is more complicated. At the end of 2019, the old engineer in charge of the HSA project resigned and left. In addition, due to the long-term vacancy caused by the epidemic situation, we did not have any engineers to take over in time. Although we searched for the latest engineers after the resumption of work, because of the high complexity of the project, we conducted the following tests At present, HSA is still in the modification and testing stage.

As compensation (although we know that this compensation can not make up for the customer's waiting loss, but we can only rely on such measures to comfort customers at present), each set of HSA orders will receive the following products:

1,JTK HSA CMYW set
2, JTK CA novelties set(As a conservative plan, we dont want do HSA novetlies so far)

The implementation and distribution of the compensation plan will be communicated and discussed with the vendors  to determine that after all the projects are completed, the compensation will be distributed to each customer

That's unfortunate I hope things start to get better for you and the business.
Do you have any rough timeframe for starting or finishing production? Q1 2021? Or later?

Not to sound ungrateful...but I'm not sure I understand the "compensation." The novelties to a different set? IMO, that would be unnecessary and you'd just be out some keycaps. Unless I'm misunderstanding what's being said here. To be honest, I'm not in need of any compensation. I understand stuff happens. I just ask that you continue to keep us posted.

Just to throw out an idea: maybe you could give a discount on a future set to those who ordered HSA as compensation?

I agree but I think administering a discount when these were sold through vendors will be difficult.

I'm not a fan of cmyw kits, and don't need a JTK CA novelties kit.

I would however really like some dark red accent keys. Maybe JTK can post a form to collect preference of additional accent keys (enter/space/ESC) and include those?
- one colour for the WoB kits and a different colour for the BoB kits?

Honestly Chinese New Years is just around the corner and the hobby will grind to a halt. I don't expect these will surface until late summer of 2021 if at all.

Sadly, you will only screw the proxies if you try to get a refund through PayPal/Credit Card chargeback, but that may be the only recourse for people who do not risk these never showing up.

My sympathy for vendors is waning. To some extent, it is the vendors responsibility to do due diligence and evaluate risk before attaching their name to a gb. What really made me see how much money motivates is when sets are continued to be sponsored by vendors from troubled manufacturers, such as JTK and keyreative. It seems like there is some logic in halting in accepting more group buys from troubled manufactors until they can demonstrate that they will fulfill their prior obligations.

It seems like there is some logic in halting in accepting more group buys from troubled manufactors until they can demonstrate that they will fulfill their prior obligations.
FWIW both JTK and Keyreative have figured out their ****... eventually. DSA/KAM Starry Night R2 took like 2 years to start shipping, and ZFrontier almost totally disappeared from the community during that time. But they did eventually ship, and the finished product was very good (arguably exceeding expectations, depending on your taste in keycaps).

It would be nice if I could get a refund on some keycaps I will no longer want in 2 years (see also: MT3 Suswatari). But I also understand that not every vendor is Drop with the ability to arbitrarily issue refunds.

However, there is one big argument in favor of a wide-scale cancellation & refund: the tooling has not been made, therefore the majority of the project cost has not been incurred. I would much rather the whole thing be cancelled and refunded NOW, than to wait 6 months until all the money has been spent and some other problem arises and then everyone is ****ed.

Personally I would be willing to accept a small loss and get $60 refunded on my keyset now, than to wait 3 years and/or never get keycaps and no refund at all.

I appreciate Mikeís weighing in on this earlier. Heís always seem to do right by me and by this community.

I canít same the same for the others involved, however. So, regardless of the outcome here, the lack of consideration for customers shown by JTK and Dixie will at the very least give me considerable pause if I ever consider ordering from those two again.

I see very few if any vendors are running more JTK sets...that is great. I love to see people using the power of their wallet.

Probably not good news for this set though. Is JTK pretty much out of business or nah?

Do they even have molds? Last we heard, the tooling design hadn't even been finished, let alone setting up for production in the next few months.

Prototypes were shown on the prototypist YT channel back in August 2019. IIRC the issues were not major, something to do with the stems and some minor tweeks to legends.
For some reason I seem to remember there being discussion about JTKs engineer who was working on the HSA moulds leaving. I can't say for sure though.

Novelkeys atleast offered refunds, but yeah I agree that it feels like its being ignored.

Hey all!

I have requested another update from JTK on this. I havent heard back yet, but as soon as I do I will update here.

This is not forgotten! It is, though, the longest running GB we have had. :( I am truly sorry for the delays on this, it is not what we thought it would be.

I wonder what is the longest GB in mech keys history? Surely not this one yet, but it would be kind of amusing to have the honor...

Original GH60 probably. Still going theoretically. Same with GMK Hyperfuse round 1. Probably one of the 7Bit group buys would be in the top ranks too. We are definitely nowhere near those.
