Hi i'm planning to change one of my MX switches using this guide:
Since my GON Nerd TKL has LED's attached on each switch, am i breaking something by removing the switches the same way as he did?


You have to desolder the switch as well as its in-switch LED.
Even though I have made/assembled/tuned HUNDREDs of keyboards for others, I myself don't have a full-tuned Custom Keyboard now.

Is there any way to decrease the inclination of my GoN Crystal TKL? (Are the feet removable?)

You can remove the feet with H2 Hexa wrench. ;)
You have to be careful when fastening the bolts again.

I'm trying really hard to figure out how to connect my keyboard via bluetooth o.o

I set the keys for bluetooth toggle and connect

EDIT: Figured it out.... I think xD

I have both dip switches up and I press the connect key then search for it on my android device but for whatever reason it wasn't showing up for me

Try Off and On again with your phone. And Off and On again with your NerD. Then try again. ;)
I also use NEXUS5 and I'm 100% sure it works. ;)

By default, BT Connect is "Fn2 + C", BT/USB Toggle is "Fn2 + B"

GON:

I heard about your keyboards on /r/MechanicalKeyboards a while back, and have been doing some research to find out more.  I love your NerD boards, and saw on your site that you offer a fully built NerD 60%.  I was wondering if there are any pictures of the 60% and what kind of layout the board uses.  Thanks for the help!

Sorry I could not take many pictures due to time limit. T.T
But you can find out what layouts NerD 60 supports
http://www.gonskeyboardworks.com/custom-kbds-w-assembly/101-gon-ns-nerd-60-w-tuningassembly.html
As you see in the options, NerD 60 as well as other NerD PCBs supports almost all kind of standard layouts including ANSI, ISO and etc...

Thanks for the quick answers, and sorry for asking a question with such an obviously available answer! When I was looking at the customization options, I saw that you could mod the springs on any of the switches down to 50g, but I was wondering if it would be possible to go down to 45g upon request to get a more "ergo clear" type switch? Ive been interested in this type of switch and have been looking for a way to get my hands on a board with them.  Once again, thanks for the quick responses!  :)

Clears /w 45g springs will not work properly. 55 is the minimum for Clears, in fact.

Will the Clears work with 120g springs?  If not, what maximum spring strength (don't know what else to call it) are you able to use with any Clear Cherry Switches?

Heavier Springs never make problem, but "Light" ones only does. ;)
If you want heavier springs, I would recommend springs from Grey stem switches. ;)

You will lose some of the tactile feedback with heavier springs.

I also have an MOQ for CNC-machining... So.. would you do an IC? If there is more than 5, I will make HHKB housing. ;)

Awesome. For the IC, would they all have to be the same color and shipped to the same person who would then distribute them?

No they will place their own orders at my website.
They will directly make their payment to me.
I will ship the items directly to them.
Each of them can choose their own color.
They can pick other items to combine shipping. ;)

5 of moq is just because of CNC-machining not because of anodizing. ;)

As I had to sample the new TOP plate, I needed some more time.
(I tried once, but I made a mistake in modding the design for HHKB....)

I corrected the drawing and placed an order again, your order will be shipped as soon as the new housing arrives. ;)

Hello,

I was wondering if the White NerD 60 PCB is able to support the case and layout of the KBT Pure pro. Also, does the PCB come with the diodes and other components already soldered on? I am looking for a 60% pcb that I can just solder switches into and go.

Thanks!

Hi,

NerD 60 PCB is compatible with most 3rd party Poker housings.
But I can't give you an answer to your layout question because I don't know the exact layout of Pure pro.

The PCB will be shipped /w controller SMD parts soldered and pre-flashed.
You will have to add optional soldering for diodes.

Hmm, wonder if pure case is the same as the poker, if so, I will just use that layout. If all else fails, I will just have to wire everything myself.

Hi GON,

I intend to build myself a NerD 60 with a nice clear acrylic case, problem is I live in the netherlands(EU).
as the Customs Tariffs from outside the EU are incredibly steep I was wondering whether you have any resellers in the EU e.g. Germany or the UK?
my main concern is that over a purchase of around 200$ I would have to pay 39$ for shipping and as soon as it hits the dutch borders,
A backpay on VAT ((21%) over the entirity), customs fare (again over the entirity). so If you would have a reseller of any kind in Europe that would be of epic help to me!:)

I am very much looking forward to your reply,

regards, Stinus

Hi UberStinus,

I don't declare full-value when shipping out the items, if the buyer told me to cover his items with insurance.
This is why I don't include invoices and don't use Logo-marked box.
I just ship in a flat(light brown) box /without any invoice, and declare it as a GIFT.
This will not make any problem to you. ;)

Contact me if you need any further help.

Thanks,
GON
Even though I have made/assembled/tuned HUNDREDs of keyboards for others, I myself don't have a full-tuned Custom Keyboard now.

I'm very glad to hear that, then I'm off to the second hurdle.
what exactly would I need to build the NerD 60, fully backlit and also with the led's on the sides?

EDIT: meaning LED Diode and resistor wise...

You'll need keycaps and a cable too, but GON doesn't source those.

and get yourself some 62g springs and lube in those clears

Many guys have asked me for optional springs to be sold separately.
So I recently made enough springs - 55g / 58.5g / 62g are available at the webstore.
So far 62g springs are the most popular. These are not like stock Black springs or Clear springs.
If adjusted to the same measure method, stock black springs will be heavier than 75g and stock clears will be heavier than 80g.

Now you can order standard black 1.8M USB cables too. ;)
