[GB] GMK Dolch R5 (GB open until Sep. 4)
« on: Sat, 01 August 2020, 00:08:58 »
Hello friends from Geekhack and the keyboard community ;D!

GMK Dolch R5



Welcome to the Dolch R5 group-buy, a revisited original-color Dolch keyset with classic Cherry icon-text modifiers and an R5 bottom row (also known as Row A) :cool: It preserves the original Dolch keycap colorway (CP white instead of WS1 for the legends), and also features a custom color that is close to the turquoise originally used in the old Dolch logo. See below for more information on all the features of this set.



Features


  - Cherry profile, ABS plastic, thick doubleshot keycaps manufactured by GMK.
  - Alphas: CC light grey base, CP white legends.
  - Modifiers: N9 dark grey base, CP white legends.
  - Accents: P3 red base, CP white legends; custom color-matched Dolch turquoise base, CP white legends.
  - OG Cherry-style Icon-Text modifiers.
  - Complete R5 bottom row support!
  - Support for most common layouts, as well as ISO-UK.

Other sets that use the CP (white legends) color code, that you may use to mix-and-match: Olivia, Honeywell, Ursa, Barebones Stormtrooper, Bingsu.
For N9 (dark grey modifier color): Skidata, Terminal, Wasabi, Nines, Q:01, etc...

Dolch computer systems is a company that made the Dolch PAC which is basically a portable old school computer with keyboard. As for the word dolch itself its named after the founder: Volker Dolch.

Yup, they were portable computers used for "network sniffing" and other various computing, network, and media operations. The Dolch keyset that has been made over the years is inspired by the colors of the keycaps originally equipped on the keyboards of these computers.

OG Spacekeys Round 2 is also live -- https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=107883.0 -- hineybush is spearheading the GB for them; these will be useful for any additional spacekeys you might need with Dolch, as well as other classic sets -- beige or WoB/BoW.

This is super useful info, thanks!

Im sorely tempted, one because the colours are awesome and two it includes full UK ISO in the base set!
