[GB] J-02 60% GB Done - Moving towards Production
« on: Fri, 31 January 2020, 17:21:07 »
Hello everybody

This is the Group Buy for my second board, the J-02. A fully featured 60% with Brass internal weighting, removable pen rail, full isolation mount design, carbon fibre plate and with a USB-C daughterboard.

After the success in proving the execution of my first board (the J-01; more info and pics/videos HERE and a build stream HERE ), I wanted to do something a little less extreme from a layout perspective and that was more accessible both in terms of layout options and availability.



ALL GB Slots filled - US sold out in 2 mins. Now moving towards Production



All information will be posted here and on my Discord Server - https://discord.gg/MGVQCVG

I'll be covering the J-02 on my Sunday build stream - talking about changes to design, adhesive gaskets and other stuff - noon PST, 3pm EST and 8pm GMT on Sunday 02/02/2020 at https://www.twitch.tv/topclack - VOD HERE

Yes thatís currently the plan due to proximity. If youíd rather ship from the EU you can buy the standard edition on MyKeyboard.EU, or specify on the Limited Edition form

I'm really glad we added it. The original IC didnt show much interest for it, but the sense check a couple of weeks ago showed it was highly popular.

Iíve been using my j01 almost exclusively since i built it 2 months ago and I am quite excited to add a 60% j series to the rotation. The sound, feel, looks, design, and pure sex appeal of the j series makes it a MUST have. Amazing board by an amazing designer and person.

Germany should fill out the EU/US form - assuming you win an LE slot it would ship from the UK.

Standard edition for Germany will be on Mykeyboard.EU shipping from the EU directly

Wow, your ratio allocations of 15/5 to US+EU/ASIA is matching those numbers so accurately!

Looks like chances are gonna be slim for LE raffle participants

Thank you to everyone that entered for the Limited Edition spots.

We had over 380 responses for the Eu/US and over 120 for Asia (over 500 in total!!!)

The draw will take place later today as I and the vendors work through the detail and will be announced around 10pm GMT on 4th Feb (today). Currently Iím talking with the vendors about the demand and removing a small number duplicates (not counted in the above numbers))

Thanks again for all your support and I look forwards to the Standard Edition on the 8th February - reminder itís a 10am EST launch on Cannon Keys, MyKeyboard.eu and ilumkb!

Hi folks,

This post is to announce the EU/US winners of the Limited Edition J-02. Asia winners will be announced tomorrow as @iLouis_07 | iLumkb.com  is asleep :D

We had over 500 entries across the EU/US and Asia forms - way more demand than I anticipated. With this in mind we have made a slight change to the number of LE units avail:

EU / US has increased from 15 units to 20 Units
Asia has increased from 5 Units to 10 Units

This decision was made due to the volume of demand.



EU / US J-02 Limited Edition winners were selected using an online random list picker, and are as follows:

Lunr - Geekhack
Cedric#1852 - Discord
Fu362 - Geekhack
Morgan3wheeler - Reddit
Skewed#4033 - Discord
Penguindroppings - Reddit
Voxkey#0165 - Discord
FatboyCarney - Discord
Carcha#9628 - Discord
physkey#2570 - Discord
Japanesehorrorwriter - Geekhack
Clay#1500 - Discord
Subluxe#0001 - Discord
AaronR - Geekhack
Shansoft - Geekhack
tintaps - Reddit
G-force - Discord
lbaron - Geekhack
soft#5706 - Discord
Urbantheii#9650 - Discord

Congrats to all winners!!

Upas and I will be reaching out with invoices in the next day or so. Asia winners announced tomorrow

Sorry to all those that missed out - the Standard Edition goes on sale @ https://cannonkeys.com/, https://ilumkb.com/ and https://mykeyboard.eu/ on the 8th February at 10am EST - hope to see you there!!!

@Jae-3soteric

Apologies if this has been already posted but are there comparison images between black and space grey? The color shown on CannonKeys is what I'm leaning towards which I'm guessing is black?  While it looks great, I would not mind it if it was somewhat lighter, kind of like how Apple does it which is kind of what I'm hoping space grey is.

Ordered mine along with an extra Plate and PCB from MyKeyboard.

What's the best way to communicate that I want one ISO and one ANSI Plate?
The form linked in the description on MyKeyboard only allows one Plate option.

@Jae-3soteric

Apologies if this has been already posted but are there comparison images between black and space grey? The color shown on CannonKeys is what I'm leaning towards which I'm guessing is black?  While it looks great, I would not mind it if it was somewhat lighter, kind of like how Apple does it which is kind of what I'm hoping space grey is.

There are pics on my insta of the space Grey IRL - https://www.instagram.com/jae_keebs/

Ah ok so the silver looking one is space gray I'm assuming. Gotcha! Black it is!  ...well..hmmm... I'll make up my mind at some point.

Thanks Jae!

I cannot express the sorrow I feel that I woke up late this morning to find they had all been sold out already. Today is a sad day for me...

Us and Asia sold out very quickly (2 mins for all 100 in USA)

EU was expected to take a little longer and did as you couldnít complete checkout unless you had an EU address. If that had been open I suspect they would have sold just as fast as US

Really glad we (EU) had our own stock that was basically untouchable for outsiders. It's always so hard for FCFS GBs with a single source when you have to compete with the huge keeb community in the US. Would be great if this is something we will see more often in the future. And not for EU only, just region locked stocks at regional vendors in general.

Only with custom PCB and custom plate. Neither the PCB nor the plates (ISO, ANSI).

But why don't you use mod_tap?

right Shift: RSFT_T(KC_UP)
right Win: RGUI_T(KC_LEFT)
right Menu/Fn: LT(1, KC_DOWN)
right Ctrl: RCTL_T(KC_RGHT)

Pressing right Shift/Win/Fn/Ctrl alone will act as pressing up/left/down/right arrow, pressing right Shift/Win/Fn/Ctrl with another key will act as Shift/Win/Fn/Ctrl modifier.

Will the vendors reach out and ask about color and layout? There was no option while ordering. (mykeyboad n my case)

That's a good workaround tho, but some time I just need to press left/right for long. emm like while watching video?
thx for ur suggestion anyway

Press right Ctrl, release right Ctrl (the keyboard will send a single Right keydown event), press right Ctrl immediately again and keep it down, and your keyboard will send Right keydown events continuously until you release the key.
