Peace.
See you next time.





Update 4th August:

SAMPLE HERE

comparison with R1s color


We chose this one (No.5) from 6 color samples that HAMMER sent.
Hard to describe this color, it's kind like Noodler's blue-black ink.
Naturlly, there is a color difference between the picture and the real object, just for reference only.






  And, one more thing. Anyone who purchase an alpha/C64 alpha + TKL kit, will get a gift for free. It looks like this.



That's all, thanks ;D

Looks fantastic! Been waiting for 40's support with CRP, however please consider an r2 1.75u Backspace key for the 40s kit as it's a very common key used in 40s keyboards, started initially with The Van keyboards, and further expanding into many more customs that have ran such as Pegasus, mb44, Viscious40, Oceanographer, and many, many more.

As kokaloo already said, the 40s kit could use a little work. You have 1.5u enter which goes with 1.75u backspace (which isn't present) and 1.5u backspace, which goes with 1.25u enter (which isn't present).

You also don't really need 1.5u and 1.75u fn, just 1u and 1.25u fn on R3.

Why is this in IC section when you dont even have an IC form? As much as I love this keyset, it looks like everything is final and its just advertising at this point.

I see, but Hammer does not have this 1.75u mould. So... thanks for your advise though.

R5 bottom row kit? At least Tsangan + Numpad? And maybe a 1.5u R2 Delete key?

This is the Round 2 so many of pre-works have been solved in R1.

As mentioned by a previous user, since you have R3 1.5U Enter and 1.75U Enter, you can remove R3 1.5U Fn and 1.75U Fn in favor of other keys.

If the R2 1.75U mould does not exist and cannot be made, that's very unfortunate because you will be excluding the option to use this set on a significant amount of 40% keyboards - and I can't think of anything that would utilize the R3 1.5U Enter key without the R2 1.75U Backspace.

However since the R3 1.25U mould exists already, you could include a R3 1.25U Enter to add support for 12.5U 40% keyboards. (Such as the Dimple, UT47, Humble40 to name a few).

Also, in the spacebars kit, a 1.75U is usually offered in pairs to support a specific bottom row layout of the JD45 (and the more modern Phoenix45, as well as a few more niche keyboard layouts), either include both 1.75U spacebars or none. A second 2U spacebar also would be helpful for many other layouts.

pretty weird to make a r3 1.5u mould but not a r2 1.75u mould, as they're literally only used together. really hurts 40s support.

Why not black legends? Those blue in r1 were terrible.
I hope this darker blue will be better...

Please address the feedbacks on 40s kit and add 1.75u R2 backspace and 1.25u R3 enter.  Will for sure cop the set with 40s kitting addressed!

Please consider moving the rest of the punctuation keys from the TKL kit into the alphas kits. This way, one can outfit two boards by buying two alphas, TKL mods, 40s mods, and spacebars. Yes, even 40s use some punctuation keys.

Consider doing 2x 1.75u and 2x 2u in the spacebars kit, but please don't drop them if it's not possible to do so. That way we still have the option to buy two kits instead of having none at all. (Like I did with CRP R4, massive copium).

And yes, a 40s user would need to buy these many kits just to get good or even minimum coverage: alphas, TKL mods (punctuation, bottom row mods, shifts etc), 40s mods, and optionally, between 0-2 spacebar kits. Please consider that when assessing sales performance in that area.

Also 1.75u Shift is in the TKL kit but the 1u Fn key seems to be in the other mods kit. They pretty much have to go together. Otherwise the TKL kit plus alphas just by themselves will exclude pretty much the most popular if not the defacto right shift configuration for 60s these days. TKLs, 65s, etc seem to be covered though.

That aside, I love CRP and I welcome 40s support in one of my favorite keycap manus. Good luck!

Oh man this looks so good. I am a bit worried about the strange kitting that others have gone into.

But for me, the main issue is lack of NorDeUK.

Not that I need the lettering on the keys at all, but if they're there at all they should at least be correct for the base layer.

for foreign buyers drop has very good support, which most other NA vendors do not. and they're easy to work with compared to many other vendors, which explains hammer's consistent choice to keep using them.

there are other reasons i can't get into, but drop is, at the very least, not as terrible as they used to be.

Yep, I like Drop. They always ship fast to me (UK), when I had problem with missing item, they reacted very quickly sending me one. Any issues they tend to respond in max 2 days. I've bought many things from Drop and I'm 100% happy with their service.

Drop is the only vendor who actually lets you cancel when an GB misses deadline.
NK is months and months late for salvationm60 and not even an email
my spacebar is warped on cherry notion and NK refused wny help
drop lets you return anything for any reason
drop lets you cancel with no fee
cannonkeys charged me 5% when i wantred to cancel an order for as GB that was late
mekibo is the worst of them all. i dont even join a GB that i want to join if its mekibo. the guy thinks he is doing you a favor by taking you money. i guess he got that idea when he got losers like some people here as customers who really polish his artisan with their mouth for no reason :D I call them COL (community of losers)

I much like the legends over the ones used in round 1, which were way too blue imo. However, I personally think they would look even better when they're fully black.

It's disorderly grain surface, looks kinda rough but feels smooth when you move the mouse.
