Sorry for the last minute question but how annoying is it actually to build with Nylon? Is there any risk of ruining the build? Have some concern because this is the first time I'll be soldering.

No you wouldn't be able to actually cause damage to anything. The biggest issue is you have to push the plate up from underneath to clip into the switches properly meaning you need to start at the centre of the board.

It is already closed on MyKeyboard and DailyClack. It is Monday 5:13 AM in Singapore, so probably it will close in a couple hours.

Any chance there'll be extra tops in stock once these arrive to vendors? Really regretting not picking up a white top.

we will be ordering extras with each vendor to cover QC fails, hopefully everything is good and there will be some nice A-stock extras. Else there will be b-c stock

I'm so sad I missed this. The sound tests by Koen Romers sound incredible. The Prophet and Zephyr are my favourite sounding boards so far.
Any chance of a raffle for an extra keyboard or a second round?

Will there be extra like pcbs, plates, and different tops available once the initial Groupbuy orders have been fulfilled?

For plastic plates in general, I recommend using two skewers while putting in switches in a row at a time. Works wonders. ;)

Can confirm this method works fine with Nylon for my prophet.

yes once all GB orders are shipped and verified extras will be sold. It is up to the vendors how they want to sell their extras :-)

Here's hoping the Nylon plate doesn't give me too much trouble but I'm pretty sure ill end up using PP and Nylon as a potential backup. Honestly super excited for this one. Can't wait.

I really think everyone is worried too much about it! I haven't had an issue with mine.

If you got a Nylon plate, I recommend using it right away. These shrink over time, at one point they will no longer fit the board.

It will be your best typing experience, but with time it stiffens and loses its overly unique properties over other plastic plates.

With that said, even knowing this, I ordered 2 boards with nylon plates exclusively. :)

FWIW I had a half nylon plate in the box for over 8 months and used it for a build and it worked fine - it was a little harder to build with but once built worked as the other does. Of course your mileage might vary.

So.. Just out of curiosity.. What would be the deadline to edit the option selection form?

I chose HHKB, but am now realizing WKL or Standard is way more practical for my needs.

Well past. The boards are already being manufactured. Best you can do is ask whatever vendor you bought from if they'd be willing to swap it out when they get them in with some of the extras. Or find someone with the top you want to trade with.

Kinda figured this would be the case. Honestly might just try and get an extra top :D

Most is still on its way to the vendors - once they have it most estimate 1-2 weeks for QC and packing before they will begin shipping so hopefully we're looking at 1st-2nd week of December for shipping

These are private runs and Max has explicitly said he won't run brass, probably same for PC

Curious to know why. Do you know was it because of cost/sound/weight?
