Very very nice, especially loving that aquamarine! Will we get a sound test sometime before the buy as well? Also curious if the plate will be getting any relief cuts as I tend to see that common with the gasket mounting systems?

There are some mild relief cuts already. Might do a sound test if I am able to somewhat capture what it sounds like in real life use, if not, there will be no sound test.

I have a dream that there will be a super secret ultra-rare burnt orange color of the tind :)

The seamless would make it easier to powder coat though, right?  So maybe I could have it painted down the road.

Hello.

Due to Covid, and not to dissapoint potential buyers I will delay the delivery time of the Tind.

There are other reason aswell, Fjell R5 and Klippe T R4 are in production, and that has resulted in around 900 keyboards in the production queue. Since we don't want to skimp on quality, we are going to delay Tind a bit.


I am postponing the estimated delivery from September-October to November.


Thank you.

Been testing a bit: feels great to type on, great sound. I love the carbon fiber plate.

That assembly is very nice. Simple and clean. Looking forward to hearing some typing! I'll gladly buy one now and still wait the extra time  ;D

Yes, in the future.
The plan is to offer different colors each round, and I have some special plans aswell.

Thanks for your reply. I guess I will be holding out for a future round then. GL with R1, I'm sure it will be a runaway success!

Hello!

Will be running one more prototype before production, should not take too long as I am the entire production queue in my factory :)

I will make sure to have representative pictures of the keyboards before the raffle opens.

Thanks for your patience everyone <3

Yes, only 100 kits will be sold this round. You enter the raffle for a chance to be one of the 100 that are eligible to make a purchase.

I initially said late June for the raffle, which may be, but whatever date I decide to run the raffle, the shipping date is still November 2020.

So I hope it is okay for folks with a little bit flexibility on the raffle date as long as it is announced in advance, and that I can gurantee a delivery in November 2020 no matter when the buy itself will happen.

Sounds good to me, I was just curious since the delivery time had been pushed back if it also affected the raffle time. Either way, can't wait for this!

It all depends how long things take with shipping etc. for the prototype. That will determine the raffle date.  All the boards can be produced and shipped in November regardless of when the raffle is, due to having reserved production slots.

The ultimate end goal for Mekanisk is to have all the boards ready before the raffle, so you can have “immediate” shipment.  ;D ;D we are not there quite yet, but sooner than you think.

This is really what a Fjell with gaskets would be :P

We will have to see in after this round is done and get feedback from all you here!

Hi LeandreN, i have been waiting for this case since early 2019 although i know you have been developing it since much earlier, and i got a couple of questions.
What are the plans for Tind in the future, will be more raffles or gb (if this raffle goes well)?
I'm guessing that the plate is the regular 1.5mm, do you if making an alps compatible 1.2mm plate will be a problem or should be ok? (assuming that you realese the plate files for people making their own) I'm making this question because maartenwut probably will be making an alps pcb with daugtherboard support

Hi. 1.2mm should be fine but you get less gasket compression.
I will release the files. And yes, there will be more raffles in the future.

That is great i would love test it with the regular plate 1.5, and a custom 1.2 for alps. I definitely will be at raffle, although my luck kinda sucks but let's see this time. It's lovely to see the essence of Fjell in a gasket mount, also the mekanisk blue and the R1 grey colors are top notch, will be a hard choice for most of the winners.

Good luck the raffle :)
