[IC] Skeleton 60 Keyboard
« on: Tue, 24 November 2020, 14:14:09 »
General information and price of the keyboard.
We don't have a formal team, nor do we plan to at this moment. Everyone came from various places to do something that they liked.
There is a dedicated person responsible for drawing, proofing, testing, taking pictures, packaging and after-sales.
Considering this collab with my overseas friends in China being barebones yet efficient, we named the board Skeleton.
By the way Halloween is over.

Price USD 380, excludes shipping and PayPal fees.
1. Case will be top mounted, 6063 aluminum - t5 (top and bottom casing)
2. Silver aluminum universal switch plate - Anodized
3. QMK PCB - USB C (Via ready)
4. Typing angle at 11 degrees
5. 8mm 3M Bump-ons.







Accent piece and inserts
1. Brass weight - Sandblasted
2. Brass accent piece - Sandblasted (interchangeable with Acrylic insert for RGB)
3. Acrylic insert for RGB - Sandblasted (interchangeable with Brass accent piece if you hate RGB)
4. Brass logo piece (bottom) - Brushed
5. Brass top piece (top) - Brushed

I have decided to add in a brass accent piece for those that disliked RGB (cos why not? I believe in options.)
Please refer to the diagram below for parts.





Logo will be brushed, same as top piece, to accentuate it. Went to sandblast my proto, was a bad mistake, final production will be fixed.
Apologies for the finger print patina, the micro scratches are due to my bad handling and self fix lol.


Brass accent piece image:


Layout: Winkeyless, Winkey and HHKB available.



Additional parts:
1. PCB - USD 40
2. Brass switch plate - Sandblasted USD 30
3. FR4 plate - USD 25
4. Additional Acrylic insert - USD 10 (if you tend to break things and build keyboards with herculean strength, I would suggest you to get it lol)

Colour options:
1. Silver - Top + Bottom enclosure
2. Black - Top + Bottom enclosure
3. Ecoat White - Top + Bottom enclosure + USD 35

Disclaimer:
The Acrylic insert for RGB is not polycarbonate, do not flex it, it will break.

Edit: this is a chonky heavy boi vs all the 60s I have.

Raffle format:
Limited to 100 orders based on raffle results, then slowly extend to 200, depending on how my PayPal can cope.
This shouldn't be an issue since I am using a PayPal merchant account in good standing for the past decade.
I rather be conservative than being too adventurous and flop the whole GB.

Order form:
I will probably kick off near end November 2020 or early December 2020 depending on my schedule. Just had an eye incision/surgery so I am kinda blind temporarily on an eye.
Wait for the official [GB] Skeleton 60 Keyboard thread for more details. I need to clear things up and draft my SLA to my manufacturer and China partner.
Raffle results will be announced by probably 2 days after the Group buy thread is approved.
Invoices will be billed in Singapore Dollars (SGD, based on bank rates provided later).

Delivery
Given the uncertainty and how screwed up the world is, I set a buffer period of 6 - 8 months after initial down payment to the manufacturer.
Was promised 2-3 months, but China holidays are near I am actually skeptical they can deliver by then.
In the event it is completed early, it will be shipped out immediately once shipping invoice is paid for.

Contact:
Feel free to contact me here or via discord at Okonomiyaki#2832
Once again, my heartfelt thanks to all that supported.

Locals could do PayNow PayLah to avoid fees, shipping fees would still apply since my partner will be QCing and shipping from China. At least costs will be better since it doesn't go through me again.

Edit: Sound tests might have to wait. Can't really do builds at the moment since my eye was just being operated on. Last thing I want for Christmas is a glass eyeball lol.

It looks awesome and i get the 11o angle is for the old school style Kustoms, but for me that is a wrist breaker. Good luck with the IC and GB :).
