[IC] KBD67 MKII plates (POM and FR4)
« on: Mon, 22 June 2020, 08:17:34 »
I start this IC with the intention of offering the option to buy plates of other materials for KBD67, being them FR4 and POM (just these for now). The idea is that users can have a wider range when choosing what type of plate to use, thus having a possibility of feelings in sound and tactility when typing on their keyboard. If interested, fill out this Form

As for POM, I am still researching supplier and prices, I will update them when I get it.



Layout

Version Soldered
Image
FR4 Color Black



MOQ

FR4
Thickness: 1.5mm
Color: Black
MOQ: 0/10
Price: $25

POM
Thickness: 1.5mm
Color: Black or White
MOQ: 0/20
Price: (Estimated Price $ 30) (It will still be updated as I find a factory for processing)



Note

Leave your comment. Help me with feedback to improve this IC
There won't be a GB, this IC is to give me the basis of how many people are interested in what is offered in this post, my intention is to sell the plates in stock. That way I don't produce a quantity that is too high, so there are no stranded plates, nor do I produce a quantity so low that I cannot meet the demand.

Never doubted that. I've personally made that mistake before and want to warn others

by soldered version, does that mean the hotswap version has a different plate layout, which you are not catering to? or is the soldered plate the same as the hotswap plate?

With how we in a pandemic it be easier just to have a local laser cutter make and ship to you vs gb find cost might be cheaper and faster since all shipping broken.  ;D

the hot swap plate is different from the soldered one. The reason I donít support hot swap plate, is that kbd changed the plate design

Thank you for your support. In talking about updates, I asked a friend of mine to help me finish the FR4 board, with those gold or silver-plated edges that come on a PCB. See this example: https://brianleereviews.files.wordpress.com/2018/11/ltarnxt.jpg?w=750

im very interested in this as well. in regards to plate-pcb compatibility, am i mistaken to think a solder plate is still compatible with hotswap pcb albeit without the standoff holes?

Sorry for the late reply. I can't say, you could try, but I don't guarantee anything.

Is this still active?

Solder plates will work with hotswap if you do not use standoffs. this just means that youll have to take out one switch at a time to swap or take the pcb off the case and swap switches that way as the switches are the only thing holding the plate and PCB together.

I would also be interested - even more so if I would not have to pay out my rear for shipping (Europe).

Any available sound tests? Or other descriptions of the differences in these versus the stock brass plate?
