also just created an acc, will you verify these with the early birds and then send the coupons or do we need to contact you in some other way?

I'm now working on this, might take a while.

These are amazing! I've been looking for a nice 75% at a reasonable price for a while now.

No rush, but can we enter the raffle in case you sell 100+ by the time we get the coupons?

Finally! Time to say goodbye to my savings, this + Nautilus.

Also can anyone confirm if the powder coat on the yellow is smooth or textured like in the IC picture? I'm thinking of just getting that stainless steel version cause I'm liking how smooth it is.

Absolutely love the name change, I just jumped in for a 60% in black.

Seeing pictures of the beautiful bare metal 65% I was sorely tempted to go for a second. (Feels weird the word beautiful for such an industrial chunk of metal)

Kudos to Plastik for doing such a good job with the website :thumb: Looks really professional, particularly the animated diagram.

Just wondering, when it comes to shipment, are they going to be shipped as per chronological order, ie starting from whoever placed the order first?

Powder coating is quite textured. Look at the prototype photos to get an idea.
The stainless steel model is also not entirely smooth... It's got less texture than powder coat models though.

Coupons are for those of us who helped paying the protos at different times in the IC process.
So it's for "early birds" only. Not for classic GB buyers.

Morjen from the rheinisch version of Bornheim!

I followed your IC loosely but now that your GB is live you caught my attention. The name change is very nice \m/
So now I'm considering wether to get a 75 or a 95. How wide are those versions?

Hi, can you post some dimensions of the 95% version (overall length/width etc.), as well as the size of the rectangular gap between the function cluster and number clusters? I am planning to make some custom vinyl stickers, and If I know the dimensions I can design around it. You don't have to disclose too much, but it would be nice to have some diagrams showing the general dimensions of the different cases. I would also appreciate if you can take a picture of the bottom of the case. Thanks, good luck with your GB!

please take a look at the photos in the start post. they are high res and super sharp. these photos should give you a mutch better impression of the powder-coated and the stainless-steel-bead-blasted than I could describe with words.

I'm a little confused by the Yas62 options. I have a Yas62 PCB that I still never assembled.

I see that you say that you have some left, but if I choose the yas version of the HHKB-60, the price is the same as if i get any other 60%. Is there somewhere else I should be looking to indicate that I don't need a PCB that drops the price a little?

yes, the 60% is the only size that you can get without a PCB, if you prefer. It wass called "HMKB 60s" in the beginning but since most don't seem to check what's behind that, I renamed it to "HMKB 60 no PCB". this should be a bit more obvious now :)
you can get a 60YAS version without the PCB there.

Once you have installed the keyboard, do you know roughly how many mm is the space between the PCB and the bottom plate?
Asking to see how much foam we can put on the bottom to dampen the noise.

since it is angled, the front edge of the pcb is very close to the bottom, at the rear end there is obviously more space. I can give you more specific numbers on monday.
