[Other Information]

My other GB, Nyaong75 is currently on-going without any problem.
No delay to schedule so far.
The prototype of Nyaong75 will be manufactured soon.
The manufacturer is preparing for the prototype and mass production.
Packaging design is on-going too.
I have ordered to PCB designer for Nyaong75 PCB.

The Brick65, I have got quotes from the manufacturer, but as the cost for cnc machining is high
(many curves and rounds here and there, lot of parts and too long machining time),
I and the manufacturer are pondering to lower the manufacturing cost.
With current quotes, the final price will be 600USD with moq of 500.
Am not sure if this price is reasonable or not. So, give me some more time.




Thank you for reading my thread.

Hope many of you are interested on my keyboard.

Looks great, is it possible to choose the same color for the top and bottom case?

Will the gold plated brass be actual gold? If so, any estimate on how much that will cost?

You are "the cat man" now on.  ;D

Look really cool, and i think different color bottom/top is really nice. I'll keep a eye on this and hope its not too expensive.

Thanks cat man

Gold plating is the most expensive option and have requested for the quotes. But this is not decided yet. Am still looking for other options.

Planned to make the sample next(or next next) week.
I will show you the real one with keycaps, not the render.

Love the engraved border and the side view.  Wondering what you have in mind for mounting.  I'm looking forward to learning more.
