Do I need another TKL?

Me: No

Will this be added to my collection?

Me: Yes

What the the grammage of the spring refers to? Bottom out or actuation?
Is it possible to get more of those springs like as an extra?
Do you have any other videos of the keyboards ?

 - This is the pressure notation when the spring is pressed all the way down.

 - This precision spring has high production price. So We didn't make this spring for sale all the time. we won't always be selling it.
You can order additional springs only with your keyboard order.

Look at the comparison picture of our spring.


 - We want to post more videos, but we are moving our office. Soon after the move is complete, I will post a video with the environment.

Where can we check the colors?

Since the number of keyboards we make varies, and the number of available colors continues to increase, we cannot show samples for all colors.

I'll post some photos. but Champagne Gold, Rose Gold, and Cerakoat Yellow are new colors, so please understand that there are no samples yet.


 - The case in the photo above is anodized. The weight is made of cerakote



- -This is an example of a pink cerakote color.


 - Here is an example of a gray anodizing top.


 - It is an example of navy and beige.



 - Color example of orange gold anodizing

Great, but Champagne Gold, Rose Gold, and Cerakoat Yellow are the colors I'm mainly interested in (and Pink) so would you have any way I can see the colors (even if not samples) before you close the GB?

These three colors were not planned, but were added due to suggestions from IC. If we have a chance, we will try to show you the sample.

This keyboard is a TKL keyboard from the beginning.
And you can make two-tone by combining different colors of top and bottom. Many photos are like this.

For PCB, we will upload detailed photos soon. We don't have a lot of PCBs in stock, so we're going to show you a picture of the existing inventory. New PCBs for GB may have some changes.

WKL only received small orders. So we only made a small amount.
we have sent all the inventory we have made, we currently do not have any.
Instead, we are preparing to render a WKL version, so please be patient.

We are currently designing alps plates. If there are no special problems, it will keep the thickness of 4mm. PCBs are available in both Cherry and Alps.

Is there any way you can share more pictures of various top and bottom case color combinations, and give descriptions of the colors used?

Also, I just want to make sure, the "point plate" is the weight? I'm not sure what "adding color points" means. Thanks in advance!

The point plate goes under the keyboard.
It's commonly referred to as 'weight', but it's an option for those who don't want the keyboard to get heavier and who want to use aluminum plates made of different colors instead of weight.

In short, it is a weight using aluminum.

Will the Alps plates be available during the GB period or only after? I’ve been waiting for an Alps TKL kit and this looks perfect, but I don’t want to buy a kit now on the hope that Alps plates will become available at some point.

I confirmed your modify.

If it is a minor modification that does not require a change in the invoice, it is okay not to notify us until the end of GB. We will gather all the information at the end of the order. We set Form as modifiable for that.

The PCB and casing are designed for standard cherry stabilizer. Third-party products such as screw-in stabilizer are available, but may need to be partially sanded.
