Extra fee only applies for international if want some tracking as extra services are involved for it to actually be of any use once it exits USA.


Thank you Lysol.  Couldn't resist the sets you are offering, so got stupid greedy on some  :p .

I'm sure you've posted this before, but I cannot remember where. how much does the expensive new mold cost then for the 1.75x right shift?

don't know what to-do with these sets though, as without 1.75x right shift they aren't the best for me and then at the same time there are some awesome options you are offering here

Indeed, international tracking is quite expensive unfortunately. I wouldn't order without it though.

Could you do nordic legends in ansi layout?
Also I have a bit of a hard time visualizing the current nordic set so if you could do a rendering  it would be great :)

Have actually no idea what is included in all these pbt goodness sets. So i am waiting bravely for the full mockups before getting too excited.  :)


edit: dammit...no ISO-Enter!  :mad: thats kind of a dealbreaker for me. Ivan, do you know where Ducky is producing their thick PBT's? They have ISO-enter molds.

And is it possible to add a kit with only bottom row 1.25 modifiers/spacebar & capslock key (black on beige)?

Sadly the only place that seem to have Cherry profile PBT ISO enter is Cherry ZF, and they will not sell only keycaps, and especially not only specific keycap. They only refer to GMK who does not make PBT, and BSP who does not have ISO.

New PBT molds are $12,000 each ($7,000 figure I had before was for POM molds apparently) at the factory though 7x space may even be more possibly. BSP is also missing the same amount of keys, no ISO enter, no 1.75 shift, no 1.25 or spacebars. It seems like a cruel joke or something.

Other row or sizes novelty/specialty key will probably not happen this time, if there is enough demand may be able to convince for next time. I have asked many time about making only set of modifiers keys, but have not been able to convince.

ISO layout on ANSI are a cinch, just move one key, and either drop a key or move it as secondary legend to assign to an Alt Gr or something.

Still working on a few concepts, will try and get stuff up and order form done later in the day.

I'm still working on all the single keys and have not posted them yet.

Colemak have all the extended legend from Alt Gr layer too, see the keymap in earlier post.

I guess I just don't understand why... is that a feature a lot of Colemak users want?

Suppose I'll just go for blanks then...



I know that I certainly wouldn't want a Colemak set with those legends. The Colemak user base is pretty small as is, adding international keys to it would only make it smaller.

And not to be rude (I even speak French and use international symbols sometimes!), but it even says in that link "Colemak is designed for English, so for other languages Colemak isn't optimal." So people needing those international keys are not even likely to be using Colemak as it isn't suitable for the language they'd be using them in.

Even so, I doubt that there'd be the 20 orders needed to actually get them made.

Fair enough if most of you Colemak guys don't want it I can just make it single legend. I just thought the International legends make it look more interesting.

Options for full sets updated.
It will probably take me some time to get all of the mock ups finished. Some layouts require new legends to be traced/created which I will need to complete before a mock up can be done.

Will you be offering B row 1.25 as blanks? I kinda prefer that over the Windows 8 logo which is terrible. IMSTO's standard Windows logo would be ideal since retro logo will probably mess up the color scheme of some sets, and there ain't any good alternatives to go with the Miami set for example as far as I can see.

Just a thought.  :rolleyes:

Edit: Separate standard Win logo as novelty B 1.25 for specific sets such as the Miami set, or is that too much work?  :p

I honestly don't know why Lysol is so in love with the Win8 logo.... How many people actually prefer Win8 logo over standard Win logo (Imsto)? Lysol why are you pushing the Win8 logo dude?

Two questions:

* The Starcraft / Diablo sets in their entirety are $75, correct?

* Are there any photos of already existing keys in that blue or gray color that I could refer to?  Doesn't have to be the exact lettering--only interested in the plastic.  Having difficulties imagining how light or dark these will end up.

I will need mock ups before I throw money. I can't seem to visualize what Miami will look like.

Found photos of another (but cancelled) group buy for blue Starcraft-themed PBT caps here:
http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=36294.0

(scrolling down the first post)

Are they more or less correct representations of what we should expect from the blue PBT plastic for this group buy?  The top one a beautiful shade of blue.  Bottom may be the same but with different lighting (oddly greenish spacebar!)
