Fossil Full Size - Made in USA

Carolina Mech + Van Dusen

Album

Please fill out IC Form

Join our Discord


After the success of Palmetto 60, our next project is a custom full sized keyboard. Designed and manufactured by Van Dusen.



Carnivore Weight, blued, designed by u/onecreativemind


7 degrees, 17.5mm front height


Herbivore Weight, blued


bronze and titanium blue cerakote


blank weight, blued


wk, f13, raw beadblast


specifications:
- hiney pcb, via, f12 and f13 compatible
- grommet mount
- usb-c daughterboard
- 7 degrees
- 17.5mm front height
- 2.44 kg / 5.6 lb
- price: $600+ (tbd)
- plates: aluminum, fr4. maybe: carbon fiber, brass, pom, poly?




exploded view


side view


grommet rubber mount


plate


top options (2 will be produced)

to do:
- sound test
- build streams
- anodizing is in process
- working on carrying case for shipping
- finalize colors
- proto plates in pom, cf, poly
- sale format

We're producing as much as possible in USA. We probably will outsource plates for this board because it was not cost effective on Palmetto to CNC them ourselves.

We will have several dozen early access units of this board available while we determine the sale method for a larger quantity. Join our discord for more info!

Saw this board (and it's variants) at the SC meetup last month as well as where they're manufactured.  Amazing quality, and if you're into full size this is the board to get!!

Amazing looking board.
Sent all my questions and thoughts through the IC form.
Top options 1 and 2 for the win!
I am 100% in on this board.

I waited for this so much, Hope it won't be under a raffle so I won't lose the chance to get one.

Looks very nice!
Would be even sicker if we could get a south-paw layout for the numpad, or if we could change the location of the numpad around like the TENET does with it's nav cluster.

would be a whole different board and PCB design so i think it's unlikely, but i would consider shelling out for a southpaw version

IC form filled, really digging this board design! A true alum full sized custom is something that I have yet to get in my collection & this one is looking pretty fire. The only thing that could make this better IMO would be a southpaw variant. Although I get not wanting to do that as that would basically require running two seperate designs at once. Anyways awesome work guys & GL moving forward with this!

I think you should pick 1 layout and then make the 2nd version a southpaw version of the 1st layout. I'm not a southpaw user but there are so few options out there for southpaws and full size boards that I'm sure it will be appreciated.

Layout 2 for the win! Gives the highest number of keys possible for a full sized layout. How about manufacturing in China so that the price comes down which will enable a wider community reach for this board?

Not sure I'll have the funds when this goes live but I'm going to promote the hell out of it because we need more full size customs in the space. Plus the design is sick. Arslock good people. Highly recommend.

We'll add ISO, that was an oversight. The plate already has it but the PCB doesn't yet.
I think you should pick 1 layout and then make the 2nd version a southpaw version of the 1st layout. I'm not a southpaw user but there are so few options out there for southpaws and full size boards that I'm sure it will be appreciated.

Southpaw might come eventually, please if you're interested in that make a note in the IC form.

We won't be making cases in China. The whole point of my company is to produce boards in the USA.

Quick update:

I have received FR4, Polycarb, ABS, and POM plates for testing.

I have a revised proto pcb from hiney that supports F12/F13.

We have some units in ano that we are hoping to get back in the next week or so and then we can get some streams lined up and get the GB going.

Also I have a sample carrying case/bag ordered to review, waiting on shipping now.

We need more full sized boards in this hobby. I love the weight. Those layout possibilities are bussin, but I do think southpaw version of the #1 layout as second design would be inclusive in a good direction for this board.

Very quick update -

I got the carrying case in, it's literally a large TX bag/case

I'm hoping to include it with the board. Since we are made in USA, we have make our own packing foam, and that ended up being fairly expensive on the Palmetto. So shipping in a case will hopefully work well.

Anodizing samples got pushed back a week, I guess because of the July 4 holiday. Should be here in the next few weeks.

We also had another cerakote sample come in, this one was done by our certified cerakote vendor. The color is called black cherry.

most likely will offer a few colors of cerakote based off of the IC form feedback, doing 1 off colors really makes a mess logistically, so gonna avoid that

After playing around with the stock bag configuration, not 100% happy with the fit. We're going to get a custom foam cutout made/custom zipper, so just ordered the sample for that and will hopefully have it in a few weeks.

We got anodizing back but am not entirely happy with it. We're going to go with cerakote for the initial boards.

Also, the second bag prototype came back, and we're happy with it and hope to offer it with the GB in the future due to the high moq and storage required, we won't be able to have the case for the initial units.
