Hey friends,

I won't write the same thing I did in the interest check, so I'll just say this: thanks for considering Ogre!  :thumb:

IC Thread: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=106469.0

RAFFLE CLOSED

Ogre







Renders by DALExSNAIL.

Please note that renders are meant to give you, the buyer, a better sense of what the final product will look like. I will do everything in my power to make sure everything turns out in the way I portray it, but please note there may be some variation to shade/hue of the colors once production has completed.

Group Buy Information

Group buy slots will be allocated based on the results of a raffle. There will be two separate 10 minute entry windows to account for different time zones; one in the morning (Eastern), and one in the evening (Eastern).

The link to the raffle form will be posted in the first post of the GB thread just a few minutes prior to opening and will close immediately after the 10 minutes have lapsed; the same process will repeat for the evening window.

Date: July 4, 2020

Window 1:

   July 4, 2020 @ 10AM Eastern
   https://everytimezone.com/s/aeec084b

Raffle Entry Form will be posted on the morning of July 4th!

Layout and Color Choices:

There will be a hard limit of 35 units available in this raffle. You will be able to choose from Red, Dark Gray, Black, or Silver anodizing colors. You will also be required to choose the plate that is included with the kit (full aluminum in silver/red OR a half-plate in frosted polycarbonate). You will be able to purchase a second plate (choosing from the same options) as an extra. There is only one top piece available -- there is no WKL or HHKB available in this group buy.

Entry Process:

Everyone will be permitted to enter in the raffle once -- please choose one entry window. Due to the potential for multiple entries, I will be going through them with a focus on weeding them out. Discovery will result in disqualification from this and future zekk.works group buys.

Your desired configuration (color, plate choice, etc.) will be determined from the choices you make in the entry form, so please make your choices carefully.

During entry, please use the email you use most for communications.

Raffle Results:

The 35 raffle winners will be chosen on the morning (Eastern US time) of July 5, 2020 and winners will be notified shortly after. Notification of winning the raffle will come in the form of an email from support@zekk.works as well as an invoice from my Shopify storefront. Notification of not securing a spot in this GB will be sent from support@zekk.works.

Completion of the raffle will also be noted in the Geekhack group buy thread.

Order Changes and Payment:

You will have 48 hours from the time of invoice receipt to make appropriate changes and pay for your slot. If, after 48 hours, an invoice remains unpaid, the slot will be re-raffled and allocated to a new winner*. This new winner will have the full 48 hours to make any changes and pay for their slot. Should there be a second instance of non-payment, the slot will not be re-raffled but held by me to sell after GB units have been fulfilled.

As a very serious reminder, PayPal will not be accepted as a valid form of payment.

All order changes or inquiries must be sent to support@zekk.works, no order changes or support questions will be answered via Discord or Geekhack PM.

Q&A

Q: Will you change something small to fit my niche needs?
A: All minute details are final. No changes will be made prior to production.

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: In accordance with the raffle process, there may be extras. Please do not depend on there being extras.

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 QC and packing process as streamlined as possible.

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

---

Feel free to post any questions here (that aren't already answered) or send them to me on Discord (zekkin#0001) and I'll do my best to answer them.

Thanks!

Out of curiosity, are there any pictures of the h60 PCB anywhere? Can't seem to find one.

Yeah, for sure.



This is a photo taken by hiney (it's on his Flickr among some other great photos) of a prototype h60. As you can see, there's a soldered USB connector (will not be present for the PCBs used for Ogre) as well the JST connector pads just below and to the left of the USB connector (will be used for Ogre). You can also get a bit of a closer look at the cutouts that will allow the o-ring mount to be used.

I couldn't find this answered in the IC so I figured I'd ask here

with O-ring gasket mount I've heard it's pretty common for pcb screw in stabs to interfere with the O-ring, particularly the space bar and the back space commonly doing this leading to the use of clip ins for those in order to let the O-ring fit, however some boards are designed in such a way that this does not occur. I was curious about if this occurred for you when building the prototype (not that it would dis-sway me from getting the board of course, but more of for my own knowledge if I win, I'll need to order stabs since I have none atm)

Yeah this is a fair point. I'll amend the OP to include it as well, but this build will require the use of snap-in stabilizers on space bar and backspace (if you're using full backspace).
