    • Custom Eject Keys for Titanfall
Hi guys,

I posted my custom keyboard mod on reddit and a bunch of people asked how they could do it themselves. Well, the solo cost for the key was $13.70 shipped but I'm getting together a group buy to deliver at $6 shipped.

Yeah I got the sample as R1 by accident! The official will be the right profile. Also someone emailed me about international shipping - yes I ship international for $3

Really appreciate the props

I'd definitely be in if this was SP and so cherry profile but it'll be OEM won't it?  I'm proper excited for Titanfall though :)

Is it Laser/engraving? I can't remember how WASD do it anymore :(
unless they have some unforeseeable downside (like they're actually made of cream cheese cunningly disguised as ABS)

They should be correct Cherry MX profile. I looked into it with SP and it was prohibitively expensive - although if there are enough inquiries I'll see what I can do :-p

If they are made by WASD they are OEM profile.

YOU'RE RIGHT - they are compatible with Cherry MX switches but OEM profile. Although many Cherry MX switched keyboards come with OEM

The closest you are going to get is SP DCS for something like this, unless you get it pad printed by GMK which I'm sure is not cheap if even possible.

I'm one of those heathens that in my head says "SP DCS = Cherry Profile" which obviously it isn't but is close enough for that row...  I'd definitely be up for that :)

Would probably cost $12-15 per key to get you keycaps from SP...what do you guys think?

No. Number row is the same as the top row. Sounds like this is for the row of the 'E' key which is default eject button on titanfall I think.

Thanks PBT - this orders is to replace your 'E' key with an 'eject' key :)

If enough people demand it, I might do a group buy for row 1, as some people prefer to use 'X' key to initiate eject.

WHITERICE, PM me your info and I'll refund you so you can reorder...This time with a reinforced envelope so they can't break it. Youre the 12th person to have this issue :-/. Only have 2 keycaps left in this batch...After that I probably won't make batch 2 till I get 20 more orders!

Just found your group buy!

I jumped into for 2x keycaps with international shipping to NZ. When are you thinking about doing round 2?

Received mine only 2 business days after ordering (shipped from Los Angeles to San Jose). Looks great, but I think this key would work better as an R1-sized Esc key replacement.

here's a PNG file that I made if you want to make your own (i'd be interested in an R4 key replacement, this is R3 I think)

Wo0t! I'm super excited so many people are loving the keycap. I've got about 30 keys left - next batch may cost a dollar or two more because I'm getting pwnt on shipping costs. I initially thought I'd be able to use First Class mail, but as some of you can attest, USPS lost a bunch of keycaps because they put them through a sorting machine that tore open envelopes. I've upgraded to bubble-protected envelopes and parcel post shipping though!

Got mine earlier this week, only took a couple of days to here (in Louisiana). Thanks for the quick shipping!

Loving the key. The quality is excellent. Sides are nice and thick and the clarity of the "legend" is great.

As far as F-row, I can make a pre-order for it and produce if more than 20 people order it. Otherwise, try gettin a place to make one using the png posted above. It's a bit more expensive (+$10) to go that route but if you're impatient, it works
