Oh dear, are they already all sold? I registered just to post here and say I was interested. :(

If it's possible to extend the order, I want the control key to replace caps lock and the diamond keys as well. And a GeekHack key, why not? :)
Worry not! I will order more than 50 if needed! It all depends on how many people actually pay.

As soon as you are ready to accept payment, and know the final price per unit, I will happily send you that amount by PayPal.  If you need any assistance, don't hesitate to call on me as I was about to make a thread to this effect myself, and then stumbled upon yours :)

You have no idea how happy I am to see a community working together on a project, rather than bickering and calling names.

If I order 10 J-shaped enter keys they are $8.49 each...

Blanks are $0.21 each.

So the international "booster pack" would be $8.91.

I'm in for one set.  Need to pimp my tenkeyless Filco and Filco keypad.  And like the other Canadian, I also live a 30min... maybe 45min drive away from Signature Plastics.  Makes me almost want to drive down there and get it myself.  :)

I'll second that.  I think this is the first time we have successfully pulled off any kind of consensus on this forum.  Too many times we have had group buys fall apart because of a lack of consensus.

I think I might have to cancel my "order", I don't think I'd be able to populate my ISO MX-11800.

Can anyone confirm this?
The ctrl/alt keys are different sized (because there's no meta key), and so are the shifts I believe.

If I could be sure I'd be able to populate all the keys, even if the labels didn't match (e.g. caps lock cap on ctrl key), I'd be up for a set with the international pack (ISO styled enter).

I need someone to pop their ISO J style enter key off and snap a picture of the bottom and the stems on the board.

Signature just wants to confirm key compatibility before proceeding.

BTW, I don't think it's been mentioned in the thread or your initial post yet, but will you be taking payments via Paypal?  If so have you factored in Paypal fees?  Just in case you are not aware, depending on your account, you can be hit for anywhere between 2-4% for receving money, and 1-2% more for receiving international payments (fortunately for me, Canada is considered the same zone (domestic) as US).  It might not seem like much until you go $50x50x4%.  I wouldn't want you to lose money on the paypal fees for organizing this group buy.

If you send payment as "gift" there are no fees in paypal.  The downside is, there are no protections on gifts, meaning if you order something, pay via paypal but send as a gift, and the seller doesn't send anything, you have no recourse.

I'll be sending mine a gift in principle.  I trust the community, and the OP.

Also, you DO take Geoffrey Bucks delivered by carrier pigeon, right?

Just kidding, PayPal will be fine.

Can you do it without a PayPal account?

Most PayPal links I see nowadays allow you to make a payment without registering, but you can use an account (login on the right hand side) if you have one.

However, if WhiteRice just supplies his email, you might need one. We'll have to see how this works exactly...

I'd like to be in on this order for 1x set! and I'd like a full set of all the options, please :) Prices are very reasonable.

Think they'll work with a Rosewill RK-9000?

EDIT: To clarify:
KEY COLOR: Black or Dark Grey (As per the OP)
LEGEND COLOR: White or Red (OP configuration is fine)
FONT: Default as per the OP.  Looks sexy like an old typewriter.
TO FIT: Rosewill RK-9000 (which should be identical to a Filco)
OPTIONS DESIRED: WASD Orange (with arrows too, ideally), CTRL, CAPS, Geek Hack
OPTIONS NOT DESIRED: J-Enter, Tiny [ \ | ], Tiny [<-Backspace], Diamond aka Meta, Apple Keys

With that said I'd be happy to have a full set of all the optional keys, and would pay to have them made.  If the only way to get what I want is to get all of what everyone wants, then so be it.

I'd be happy to develop concepts for replacement keys.  I've already been working on some ideas.  I'm also still in touch with Melissa at Signature, with the idea that if this order goes well, and the results meet our expectations, that I would be interested in doing something a bit more... outlandish :biggrin:
