GMK TA90 on HMKB-75 Grey

I don't yet have the prototype PCBs for the HMKB-75 but I do have a prototype case and plate now. That's enough for me to be able to show you how the build looks.

HMKB grey is perfect for Dolch. Many other sets work as well, especially when there is some kind of warm grey present. Here it is with GMK TA90. The photos also show the cherry profile how it was originally designed. The profile is completed with R0 and R5, the way it is supposed to be:

I'm trying to picture in my head what beige would look like with a dark keyset like Olivia++ dark, I love the vintage vibes from beige but concerned that it might not work with that keyset... anyone any thoughts?

The HMKB 75 comes with the Eon75 is that right? does it support soldering Mil-Max 0305 or any other Mil-Max sockets?

What other PCBs would go fine on the HMKB 75?

Yes, the Mil-Max sockets will work. But notice that because of the mounting style of the case the PCB is only held up by the friction of the switches and the Mill-Max sockets. It is not ideal but should work. You could solder the four outer switches to have a solid connection or put some foam into the case to keep the PCB up.

The PCB is custom made for the 75, there are no other PCBs that would fit if I recall correctly.

Ceracoating over powder coating does not work (well).
This GB did not offer any ceracote or ceracote friendly option.
DONT.

If you have to, the stainless steel is your only option.

Have you possibly tried contacting your bank? Maybe they thinks is a fraudulent charge.

Paypal is really business unfriendly, especially in terms and conditions. It also has way more profit cut than needed and if you calculate all the taxes for specific location it is 40% or more of the total, so you have to crank up the mark-up pretty significantly in order to get any money out of your work.

A 6.25u, a 2u for enter, and probably a 2u for your backspace as well.

GMK TA90 on HMKB-75 Grey

HMKB grey is perfect for Dolch. Many other sets work as well, especially when there is some kind of warm grey present.

Just out-of-curiosity, would you say that also applies to Modern Dolch?
