Sigh..
Can I changed my Penumbra order to this?

Y U DO DIS???

I have refrained myself from clicking this thread for days and now...... I can't stop thinking of that blue!

But I'm growing fonder of HHKB, why the heck I need another Cherry set?

He said so.

I too want to see the final sets before I place my order. I take it there are a couple of novelty keys missing in the mockups and we haven't seen the final legends on the mods yet.

Until then I'll refresh this thread like mad man  :cool:

he ordered deluxe base, cable, tsangan, numpad, and then postage and paypal fees

well that's a very reasonable price then for all that!

itll be cancelled soon hehe

burn haha

but seriously, been there done that. folks these keysets are great but if you don't have the money just walk away, keyboards, keycaps, it's not worth going into debt over and/or committing to a buy and inflating the numbers and then having to cancel last minute and drop.

bunny what would you say is the normal drop out rate??

I'll post pics of the box tonight or tomorrow, the deluxe bonus keys are a secret and won't get shown until people get the sets, they are really just a gift from me, it will be a set of 4 , as for the mods, I answered that earlier, and I'll get mock ups sorted for them shortly

Pretty low for me actually, maybe  5 to 10 percent, but i think that has a lot to do with fixed upfront pricing and invoicing as I go

So there isn't any speculation, or not hitting the tier people wanted etc

if you can 100% assure me that the DCS profile stabbed keys will not grind on the costar stab wires on a filco, i'm in :)

also
the deluxe edition comes with a full tenkeyless set, in a nice cap box, with matching inserts, hand packed and with a nice little surprise, i have some of the boxes on hand as i got some prototypes, and i will get some nice pics up either late tonight or friday for everyone as i have family visiting

do i understand this right when i think that this will save me the hustle of "plastic bag modding" the stabbed keys?
The inserts are the inserts of the box, its hard to explain now, but pictures will help you understand. The hold the keys in place and make them look nice.
unless they have some unforeseeable downside (like they're actually made of cream cheese cunningly disguised as ABS)

It's funny that bunny is doing the third GB (gh60, penumbra and this) at around the time Honey GB started in DT and Honey has not even finished yet. Sigh.

Both penumbra and nostalgia will be finished around the time this buy closes, I actually had this spaced out for now, but it was meant to be the one I did after nostalgia, penumbra sorta fell in my lap to help someone out

Yeah it will do, you'll need the Alphas and Mods. I thought the space bars was a standard 6.25 on that thing? If it is that'll work fine too.

Either that or im getting very confused.

I think you're wrong. I believe the spacebar is 6.5, so that messes up the entire bottom row, I've been told.

I have a feeling that board has a funky layout, I'm not at my desk right now, but I'll look into what the deal is when I'm home tonight

You're correct. The TK has a weird 6.5x spacebar and weird spacing in the modifer row in general. You won't be able to replace the bottom row of modifiers.

I'm beginning to hate my choise of a QuickFire TK. I've wanted the RainDrop set, now I have a chance with Cherry Legend font... and it doesn't fit. Considering buying another one..

You're incorrect, moogle+tsangan give you all the required mods for a quickfire TK (1.5, 1, 1.25, 6.5, 1.25, 1, 1, 1.5), so you can replace everything except the spacebar.

Sure about that? I think the caps you call 1.25x are 1.2x.

Use your big boy words. No you're not sure? Or no the caps are 1.25x?

Edit: If I assume that the bottom row is 15x units wide, then kmiller8's layout is correct:

Oh, my pardons. I'm an idiot :-).
I so badly want this, but it'll be 120 USD for the set, if I want to fit everything except the spacebar out, isn't that correct? :-)

Normally you would have the spacebar match the alphas, but I understand your logic with the way the set is layed out, what I will do is include both a blue and white one in each tsangan

its just a bit too specialized to justify the extra cost of adding it to everyones order, when almost nobody would be able to use it

There was only one question in your statement, "Sure about that?" and my answer was no.

But now I am sure, checkit, maybe add it to that wiki thing you're doing.

As this is my first cap GB, can someone tell me if its normal to drop $162 on a full set of keys no duplicates?

What exactly did you order? And what keyboard are you trying to fill out?

trying to fill out either the 11900 or the 75%+qazpad

Saw the pictures and placed my order for the Deluxe Set :)

Btw:

I had to fill in all the address information again. Wasn't this saved from my last orders?

Personally I can live with any Windows logo.

I think what we need in the first place is a decision between pure symbols for the mods (as shown in the OP) or symbols + text (as shown in the above post).

I clearly am in favor of symbols + text!

Symbols + text. +1

Reviving the drum beat on this issue.  I will buy for sure if we go with symbols + text.  Probably not if it's just symbols.

no need to revive, we are literally working on the mockups right now, and adding a bunch of extra keys for everyone in various sets

Wouldn't this kill international shipping?

A set usually costs under $15 to ship to Australia from the US, but if they come in a fancy big flat display case then the shipping cost jumps to over $50 (at least from one or two vendors).
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Ah ok, I see.

One question concerning the ISO kit:

I really loved that finally a set offered full legends on all ISO keys, but I still hesitated to order it, because it's just as expensive as a full alpha set.

Obviously the price is coming from the fact that it includes 9 keys instead of the generic 4 that are needed. It's understandable that you want to complete your native layout, but I think it harms the overall sales. Everybody who is not from the UK will probably skip it because it's just to much on top of the regular set. And I also don't why there are both Enter keys in both sets. Wouldn't you need either the one or the other?

Just my 2 Cents. Maybe it's possible to trim it a little to get it down to 20$ or something...
