        Terms and Promises
        We will try our best to deliver the highest quality product to you, but we cannot guarantee every keyboard to be 100% perfect. If the keyboard arrives with imperfections, based on the level of severity, resolutions may include replacement, partial refund, or return.

        Updates Frequency
        We promise to provide progress update at least once a month, most likely more through our Instagram.

        Q&A
        Q1. Where is the weight?
        A1. The weight is the black part of the keyboard pictured below. It also acts as a background of the logos. You can choose either aluminum (anodized Black / Blue / Red / Green; E-White; E-Yellow) or brass (sand blasted).

         
        Q2. How about the N and the SQUARE.X logo that are mounted to the weight?
        A2. They are not part of the weight and will be in the same color as the case.

        I second this. The TaeKeyboards and Taeha Types videos don't accurately represent the product we'll receive due to the changes made from the prototype.

        HHKB and WKL are both possible with the hotswap PCB. Just don't put switches where the blockers are.

        Definitely in, have a few questions, though.

        1. Any idea how much heavier the brass weight is than the aluminum?
        2. Weight of the brass plate vs. aluminum?
        3. Which hotswap sockets are going to be installed in the hotswap PCBs? mill max 7305?
        4. Will there be any coating on the brass parts?
        5. Front height?

        I don't have the final prototype with me right now, but here is a short video of the 2nd prototype. It might be difficult to see, but I can assure you the plate no longer wobbles after the revision. The keyboard basically looks identical to what Nathan and Tae showed in their videos, and the sound would be very close if not the same.

        The black unit in the IC page has the polished chamfer. It might be difficult to see in the picture, but if you have seen the edges on the iPhone 5, that's what it looks like.

        Yes, HHKB is possible with hot swap. It would use the same layout at the picture below, but with the two Ctrl keys blocked.

        WK would have no blockers. (the white unit)
        WKL would have blockers on the 2 Win keys. (the black unit)
        HHKB would have blockers on the 2 Ctrl Keys. (the green and pc/yellow unit)

        2. Weight of the brass plate vs. aluminum? I am unsure about this one, but would be significantly heavier than regular alu vs brass plate due to structure
        3. Which hotswap sockets are going to be installed in the hotswap PCBs? mill max 7305? kailh
        4. Will there be any coating on the brass parts? clear coated
        5. Front height? 19mm

        Because the switches are not stable on a hot swap PCB without a plate. Yes, half plate comes in all layouts.

        I cannot modified order sheet, so I put several in. Would it be a problem?

        Do you have a render/picture for a HHKB case with a Sand Blasted Brass plate

        Will the clear brass coating be PVD? Is there an image of the coated brass?

        Please delete order id 83. I just edited my initial order(26).

        FYI, OP’s “Items Included in Base Kit” section says +$60 for brass plate, but the form says +$50 for that option.

        I’m sure it’s subject to change, but do you have an estimated cost for shipping to the US - perhaps based off your previous board?

        How much does adding a second board to your order change the total shipping cost? 😁

        Do I need to fill out the sheet again to add a second case?

        Please make sure you check your order at the Order Check to make sure your selections are correct. Changes should be reflected within a day.

        Clear coating is not PVD, it's just a clear coating to prevent the brass from rusting.
