[IC] zekk.works Ogre -- Seamless Gasket 60%
« on: Mon, 18 May 2020, 20:29:33 »
Hello all,

I'm zekkin -- I've been around for, wow, about six years now, with only the last two being spent diving into keyboard design. Until now I've mostly kept to posting my work on the MechKeys Discord server (pretty much exclusively in #kb-kustoms), my Instagram, and in various smaller Discord servers amongst close friends. I have a few keyboards that are in the wild, none being from a public group buy, at least in the sense that it was posted here, on Geekhack.

During those two years I only ever designed things with sandwich or top mount and wanted to try something different. I was not too pleased with the general public's aversion to reveal the "secrets" of the fabled OTD 356mini (despite there being very high resolution images of the board available), so I decided to make something that should, in theory, replicate the mounting style, but mixed with my own aesthetic flavor.

Anyway, here's Ogre.

  • Part 5: Payment to Manufacturer
  • Part 6: Manufacturing (lead time TBD)
  • Part 7: Manufacturer Ships to Me
  • Part 8: I Ship to You
This group buy will start very soon after I receive a PCB, build the prototype, and determine whether or not changes need to be made to the design.

---

More Information

The group buy will be a FCFS Google form followed by invoices sent via Shopify. You will pay via Shopify. PayPal will NOT be an option.

After submitting your form (assuming you are 1/35), you will have 48 hours to drop out or change your order at no penalty. Once you drop out, you will not be permitted to rejoin. Any forms submitted beyond the initial 35 will be considered in the order they were received, as long as someone within the first 35 has chosen to drop their slot.

---

Q&A

Q: Will you change something small to fit my niche needs?
A: Never.

Q: Will you offer something custom like a color or layout?
A: No. What you see is what you get.

Q: Will you consider increasing the quantity?
A: Nope. I'm one person with a full time job. It's like you people really want to end up in a perpetual group buy with no delivered product.

Q: Will there be extra keyboard kits?
A: Nope.

Q: Why do you limit extra add-ons?
A: It will make things easier for me in the long run if I can keep the packing process as streamlined as possible.

Questions answered or tangentially addressed in this Q&A will not be answered or commented on in this thread.

---

Thanks for checking this out, I'm looking forward to both your interest and criticism. Hopefully I can bring you guys a nice keyboard.

Feel free to post any questions here or send them to me on Discord (zekkin#0001) and I'll answer you as best I can as soon as possible.
