Cool, but a bit of a weird layout, especially for people who are used to using numpad positioning. I see the aesthetic appeal of this, and I wish you good luck

It didn't sell out instantly, there was just a delay before it was showing as in-stock I think. Still open as far as I can see. I went with Black WK.

Super pleased with the design and quality of Equinox. Pwner really did a fine job delivering a one of its kind 40%. Have to pass Jūbi because of BOCC but I still got a question

Quote
Front edge of the top even with the base

does this mean no extra slope in the front?

You can see on the og proto here:

There was a slight gap that wasn't parallel with the base before.

How is Switchplate Peripherals in terms of order fulfilment? How far away are they usually when it comes to their expected delivery date?
After Modern M0110 and Lumina debacle, I am a little cautious abt participating in GB.

GB closed.  We are now starting to prepare for production.  If you do not receive an email from recon, your order is all good.

Thanks to everyone who joined in.  <3

I received an email and text this morning regarding cancellation of my order without an explanation.  Did anyone else receive the same message?  What is the reasoning behind this? 

I was thrilled to be able to join the GB, so this definitely isn't something I wanted to see first thing on a Monday morning...

This was most likely due to the clean up process that they're doing to keep orders organized. I definitely recommend joining the Ion Discord that's in the original post here to get things cleared up for ya.

Looks like there was an issue with my order, and they have gotten back to me with further instructions on how to fix it.  Thanks for getting back to me, team!
