For the first time, here is the opaque black with transparent red acrylic case.  Keep in mind that the red will actually be darker when a keyboard is installed in the case and block out some light.

So TIL that my Kustom Filco REALLY needs a new case.



Any chance there may be an extra case litster? I would buy it in a second!

I'm the only one who doesn't like the big screw heads? I'd prefer a slick smooth seamingless (does that word exist?) acrylic top.

I believe there's a few left but not many so you should PM him and get in on this

Flat screws will require gluing of the different acrylic layers to keep them in place from my understanding. While I'm not a Huge fan of it myself, litster says it doesn't interfere with you when you're typing so that's fine :D

I think if you get the case you can just saw off the screws to make it flat, but like I said glue might be needed

Seemingly there is no word seamingless.

Thx. So I indeed made up that word xD

Yes, I'm sure that the screws won't interfere, my concern was entirely aesthetic. I'm also sure that the vast majority likes the aesthetic touch of the screws, not my case though.

I'd love a completely flat acrylic top (not even screw holes), but a flat head embbeded shiny screw would be interesting. I should stop threadcrapping at this point, I'm not even taking part in this buy :tongue1:

I made one with sunken screws and nuts.  It looks good, as good as my current design.  But it required gluing the top 2 layers, the middle 2 layers, and the bottom 2 layers.  I made a mess gluing them and it took a long time for me.  I could ask the shop to do but it would cost more labor.  

My current design works pretty well.  the case is actually thinner than your regular Filco case.  So even with exposed screws, they don't come up very high.  If currently your palm or your thumbs touch your keyboard's case while you type, then the screws might interfere with you.  But if you do type like that, you are doing it wrong :-).

KL, you got PM.

the red and blue is just the border of the case right?
i just thought how awesome it would look if you cut out some logo or letters above the arrows and the red/blue would be visible from the layer underneath :D

Ah, you blew my cover!  :-)

I shipped about 3/4 of the orders.  Most of the US orders are out.  Some of the EU orders are out.  If yours is shipped, you should have already received an email from me with tracking number.  If you didn't, yours is not shipped yet.  I spent all weekend just to pack everything nd print the labels.  I will try to get the rest out this week.  Some of the international addresses threw me (the ignorant American) off a bit.  :-)

No problem.  I meant to send an update to the thread.  This is as good a time as ever.  

BTW, if any of you have any problem with the case, please email me (you know my email address) so I can take care of it for you.

Sorry for not knowing the answer, but is this one of your cases Lister or another one of the custom ones we cannot get  here?

Also, have any high resolution pictures of this? It would make a great background!
