ortho is very much still supported, and has a separate solderable PCB, brass or POM plates available, and the KLE of available layouts can be found in the first post of this IC, which has been kept updated. site is currently being renovated, and its text hasn't been updated in a while. information here is accurate, and you can even find some pictures of the ortholinear prototype earlier in this thread and on my instagram (walletburnerkb). i'll update the website today! thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Ah, excellent! I was just worried I had missed something. I'm glad to hear that ortho will still be supported because I absolutely love how it looks on this board. Hopefully I can snag one! Thanks for the update!

Could you post a picture showing the size difference between this and a regular 40% board or a minivan in particular? I'm looking for some higher end 40's to replace my minvan for travel because I'm disappointed with the quality. Btw what will be the final weight of the board?

oh this is not a travel board haha the aluminum is about 5lbs with the brass knob and the polycarbonate is about 3.9lbs. i'll try to take a good pic tomorrow of it next to my collection, since the sun is going down, and with it, the good lighting in my apartment. i've never found the "40%s are for travel" designation particularly convincing, and perhaps that is one reason why i make my boards so heavy they feel like they're about to collapse in and form a small star. pics tomorrow :-)

Oh I donít think 40% is just for travel, thatís just how I chose to use mine. Yours is so damn badass though I canít help but want it anyway haha. Thanks for the info!

Yes it does, and we are planning for 2mm frosted acrylic or polycarbonate, depending on which of the two materials has better diffusion. Still testing materials, but getting good results.

Ah good to hear you're testing polycarb as well. The diffuser layer seem'd a little moot with the polycarb version of the board, but if you're doing a polycarb layer as well it works out. Thanks for the quick reply :)

no one has asked yet! yeah so the front edge is about 19.5mm but that could be misleading due to the top chamfer depth and how sunken the keys are relative to the case height. the front edge of the switchplate on the bottom row is about 15.5mm, and the highest point on the case above the top row is about 31.5mm. it's a chonky boi but because the keys are so sunken in, it still maintains a comfortable typing height.

How likely y'all think there'll be an R2 with more colour choices lol :p, just can't seem to match the colour choices in this buy with the caps I've got/plan to get. wished my suggestion for jet black made it, would have looked amazing with KAT Cyberspace coming in August.

Looks like I've set my mind on the Cajal! Gonna go for the Red w/ the big ol' gold knob.

Btw I saw that reddit post had over 10,000 upvotes.

Plz shopify, keep the site alive long enough for me to check out.

With 10k+ upvotes on that last reddit post, there's probably no chance I'm going to be able to get one of these from FCFS. Please make this a raffle, and let us know soon after the sale ends if you think a round 2 will happen.

This. I spray have a red board and the other colors just arenít fitting with I got caps. Black with cyber space would have made this a no brainer for me. I hope do a R2 with black or something.

Also, are there any aspect of the boards design itself that relate to Santiago Cajal or some aspect of his life? Or is it just in name alone?

while 10k upvotes on a picture is nice, it doesn't mean that many people are interested in a $395 45% keyboard, though the envy is vindicating. the sale is still FCFS, tho to make checkout easier I will add all extra items (extra pcbs, extra plates, extra knobs, etc) onto walletburner.co Sunday night so people can add everything besides the board they want to their cart and check out when the sale goes live. be ready this coming Monday at 5pm CDT and hold onto your butts!

Idk man you might've started a 45% revolution with all that hype  :p

I do appreciate the extras being available early though. That's always the biggest slowdown for me.

Oh yeah duh . Well I donít think Iíll be joining in on this group buy since they donít have a black one which is the color Iíd actually want for this board. Or maybe green... but yeah, if thereís a round 2 with different colors in the future Iím all in.

After a lot of thought and evaluating alternatives, the Cajal Group-Buy will be delayed until June 15th at 5pm CDT on Walletburner.co.

Key in this decision was the discovery that one member of my team who has gone incommunicado for weeks was recently diagnosed as Covid-19 positive, and is currently in intensive care. We hope they make a speedy recovery, as this was quite a shock. This turns of events unfortunately places a decent portion of the business side of the Cajal group-buy in peril/limbo as we scramble to discover what has and hasn't been properly filed and what needs to be redone. Two weeks will allow all this to be sorted in time. Downstream of this central issue, there are also several deadlines and stress points from my day job and personal life that will subside if we delay by 2 weeks. Taken together, the decision to delay is clear.

I also want to give an earnest Thank You to everyone who has been passionately following this project for months, watching and contributing to it taking shape, and diligently saving up to make the buy on Monday. I never thought this project would get such an overwhelmingly positive reception, and I think the quality in this keyboard is worth the wait. Sorry for the confusion and frustration this may cause! Trust me, I wouldn't be doing this unless it was absolutely necessary. See you in 16 days, 22 hours and 15 mins (approx.)!   :D

It only comes with 1 knob, whichever you elect. However, there will be extra PCB, knob, plate, gaskets, etc for purchase.
