Additional weights are undergoing production for comparison, and GB preparation will occur after it is done

Can confirm that the above is taking place.


any plans to use this design on a 60% board?

Not at the moment, for it would require an entire redesign from scratch (sculpted side cannot simply be scaled to a different row form factor).

Would the case and pcb have room for mill-max sockets?

This is not the kind of board designed to be hotswapped.
Choose the best batch of cherry-picked switches you can find, and solder them in for maximized acoustics.

You should probably create a FAQ in the main post.

I read the whole thread and a lot of people are asking if it's WKL only. When a question is raised multiple time it should appear in a FAQ.

This will be less time consuming for the readers and for you.

Good news: Additional weights are complete for acoustic comparisons, so the best result can be chosen from the batch.
Bad news: PCBs got lost in transit during shipment from Kevin's place, so they're being manufactured again.

Lol this is the same as asking why do people want 60% or anything smaller than a full size keyboard. With keymapping, thereís no such thing as removing important keys if youíre willing tinker with it a bit.

Since I use Mac, I do the opposite. I make left alt the win key. I practically never use the alt key. So I put alt on the right side, and life is good. On Mac, the win key / cmd key is a necessity.

So you are not a fan of the rounded profile or foamless nature of the board, but you would be all over it if only it did not have WKL blockers?    Not sure this is a board you should be "all over" unless you like all aspects of the design.
