We're glad that in this troubled times we've received a lot of interest in our product.
But we had technical difficulties with payment processing during the group buy during short period of time, and for some reason our hosting provider thought that we've been a subject of DDoS and shut down our website without prior notice.

We might've missed some number transactions , but right now we have no exact numbers on hand.

As aforementioned in group buy rules - we'll keep it live until 150 payed orders. As of now we can't give a guarantee that this number will include discarded transactions mentioned above, but we'll do our best for it to happen.



UPDATED 09.02.2021

Groupbuy time has come to an end. Thank you, everyone, for participation and your support.
I’m going to visit production likes this week, as aforementioned before.
All invoices will be sent ’til Thursday, working on it right now.

Follow discord for further updates or PM me directly.
I’ll post all the updates in here: from aluminum acquisition to cases miling, paint jobs and packaging. THX for all to everyone who supported

Does the PCB hit the bottom of the inside case when typing on the half plate? I think the Polaris had this problem.

The "Cerakote" option on the website causes the webpage to freeze and everything turns gray.

There were web site difficulties due to unanticipated demand and an underprepared server but it's all up and running now.

Glad the site is fixed.

Will POM half plate feel different from CF half plate?

Will the plate file (e.g. DXF or SVG) and/or PCB files (e.g. Gerber) be published after the GB is finished?

I also would like an answer to this question from the OP:

Does the PCB hit the bottom of the inside case when typing on the half plate? I think the Polaris had this problem.

ach plate sounds different, but each has a different flex
Carbon Fiber Regular - leaf spring - Flex
 Carbon Fiber Half - leaf spring - Good Flex (my favorite)
 Carbon Fiber Without leaf spring (Regular) - without Flex
 Carbon Fiber Without leaf spring (Half) - very few Flex
 POM Regular without leaf spring - without Flex  but sound But the sound its another like carbon
 POM Half without leaf spring - without Flex But the sound its another like carbon

I'll be very eager to see just how far this tanks you not only with QCing several dozen options but dealing with the legal and financial ramifications of violating EU and national customs laws.

what ahahah I am breaking. ? all shipments will be sent by the courier service (https://novaposhta.ua/ru - google and translate if you need) which cooperates with DHL and UPS ... I am Officially registered as an entrepreneur in Ukraine and pay taxes there (study the tax law of Ukraine and what is FOP 2 groups) then we'll talk :)) All production and shiphing  will be from UKRAINE .. You are so far from this that you do not even understand that no payment system can connect you to receive payments on the site if you are not an entrepreneur. They check all your documents and bank accounts for a month or two) so it's better to be silent than talk nonsense

I feel like with massive influx of people this hobby is turning into a dumpster. Where's all this hate coming from? Oh right some people in EU love getting tax raped.

How does the anodized colors look like? Especially for the gray option - is there some samples we can have a look?

Is it possible to have Cerakote in other colors than in the listed one?

Other things:
I'm glad that there are projects that try to price in the more affordable range. Import / VAT tax is quite difficult to avoid in my country - I or the seller (almost) always have to provide invoice. It is illegal, but some people may not want to contribute their share for some reasons, e.g. they benefit not so much from the "welfare" (e.g. universal healthcare & free education) of their countries while their governments might have spent most of their money on other things, e.g. wars for domination / weaponry industries.
If I have to, I gladly comply to the law in my case - while I have proxy who helped me to collect items and to declare lower prices too.
Wishlist: 1) hotswap gasket mount; 2) nice Alps blank caps; 3) Hipro Iris with adjustable tenting; 4) CNC POM case
More
Wishful-list: 1) All POM; 2) We order from keyboard-layout-editor.com; 3) Usable Trackpoint MK
IBM M13 black
IBM SpaceSaver II
IBM KPD8923 Trackpoint
Choc mini Gateron black
PLUM 84 'Topre-clone' 55g Korean dome
HHKB Pro 2 HasuBT
