[Ordered] Laser cut titanium 60% plates
« on: Thu, 13 February 2014, 20:36:07 »
- Material
- 14 gauge/.078" CP4 grade (aerospace grade) titanium provided by mkawa


- Cut method
   - Laser cut


- Layout
- Any layout
   - Huge thanks to jdcarpe for helping with the plate files


- Price
   - $75 per plate


- Shipping
- Priority - CONUS - $9
- First Class - International - $18
- Shipped with a 1/4" hardboard backer (more than likely, but it might depend)


- Check here, list is in order of who gets in first (green names)
- http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=52970.0
- There are 7-8 spots, the people in green get priority
- Post here, I'll contact you via PM. The green people above get 48 hours to reply to this thread


- Payment
- Via Paypay
- Option to add a $5 donation to Geekhack
- Post here, I'll PM you about payment info as well as plate layout
- Payment will be taken ASAP so mkawa can pick up the sheet and get it to my laser cutter
- Since my laser guy hasn't cut titanium, I'm not 100% sure how they will turn out. Therefore, if they don't come out, I will not be refunding anything. I have full confidence in my laser guy, but if they don't come out, they don't come out.
 - Enter this Gb at your own discretion. I also reserve the right to deny entry/sale

- If you have any concerns, ask them BEFORE giving payment!

In:
- The_Beast - Paid
 - ANSI150




- jdcarpe - Paid
 - danielucf plate



- riotonthebay - Paid
 - danielucf plate




- fart_toast - Paid
 - ISO 1.25X plate with cherry plate mount stabs support"  ( if ISO 1.25X means the same as ISO poker 2 plate)





- Latin00032 - Paid
 - ANSI 1.5x mods with short right-shift and with caps lock that can be off center.




- joneslee85 - Paid
 - ANSI 1.5x mods with short R-Shift




- heedpantsnow - Paid
 - Poker layout




- danielucf - Paid
 - 1.5 1 1.5 7 1.5 1 1.5 bottom layer, 1800 shift with extra key to the right of it, and universal backspace where I can put one 2x key or two 1x keys, plus a caps lock that can be center or off-center.






Green = in, orange = on deck since my laser guy will get 8 OR 9 out of kawas plate (or if anyone drops out). I'll take payment soon so kawa can get this shipped to the cutter (I'll take payment for the plate, then once it's closer to shipping, the cost of shipping + tools if you want them). It will be cut and everything shipped to me for sorting and tool making. Plate orders get dibs on tools. Cost of shipping to me will be divided amongst everyone in the plate buy.

At this time, 60% only


Also, switch tools will be in a different thread, don't ask for them here....

Just wondering, is a FC660C layout possible, and would there be compatibility issues with Topre boards?

Not sure if serious or trolling.

Seriously trolling. 

I'm not in for this (I'd get a 40% if it were an option), but I hope this turns out for all those who are involved!

I can send the 40% plate design, if The_Beast wants to allow it, but it doesn't seem hopeful. :)

Right now, 60% only unless the 40% can fit.


Ie, the laser guy says we can only get 8 60% plates in, a 40% should fit and keep the current amount of tools on the plate.... HoffmanMyster gets first dibs IF it works out like that

I really need a Ti plate to go with all my Ti keys. I need to think about the layout though

Edit: Universal plate with 1800 shift and 1x key to the right also with ability to do winkey or winkeyless (1.5 1 1.5 7 1.5 1 1.5 layout most important), center or stepped caps, and 2x backspace or two 1x .

What layout are you looking to make? That's what will determine what plate layout you'd like.

Sorry, what I meant to ask was this:
I want to use Poker layout.  Is there any downside to using a universal ansi plate for poker layout?

You MUST use Cherry PCB-mount stabilizers, and CANNOT use plate-mount stabilizers of either the Cherry or Costar variety.

I'm still talking this over with the missus. But I probably have to bow out.

If I don't ... I'm about a third done with making an ALPS WKL/1.75_R_shift. Except I don't totally know what I'm doing. Anyone want to clear up my .svgz file in case I can actually get one of these?

Around 2 more hours for people who were interested in the IC get first dibs. After that, it's down to people in this thread (which more than likely means it will be closed)


I'll try to do invoicing for the plates tomorrow

You can take over my slot.  The_Beast, please move me down to the second tier. 

I've already got stainless steel Poker plates, and since this would be for the GH60 anyway, I'm in no rush.
