Seems like nice quality stuff; functional and good-looking.

Speaking from a personal note, perhaps a handle could be fabricated on this, or maybe the next round could have them? I know a lot of people would probably toss them in a bag or what have you, but I think there would be a good contingent that might want to carry it on its own?

Thanks- yes, that is definitely something we can do if people want!  Possibly even in this round; of course I'll want to get a working prototype for photographs and inspection first.

Anyone else who wants a handle: feel free to pipe up. Note that it would probably be a small additional cost.

No limit, really, I can do whatever you want. SSK, full size, etc.

Custom orders are easiest if it's something I have (see my signature). If not, may need you to ship your KB to me for measurement and fitting -- but any such orders will be expedited to minimize time away from your board.

And, your board will be shipped back inside your custom case. :-)

Let me ask the creator and get back to you. It is obviously ideal to have the real thing in - hand so that the fit can be 100% confirmed (these are actually tougher to make and fit than they look),  but I also understand that shipping your own board away sucks. I will discuss and reply no later than tomorrow.

...unless of course the custom order riot talked about was his JD40...then I can piggyback off of that ;D

OK guys,

We can do custom orders with self-taken measurements. Will do it by building a foamboard dummy based on your dimensions, so make damn sure they are accurate.

Here is what I'll need:

  • Length (left to right)
  • Depth (front to back)
  • Height at highest tip of top row keycaps
  • Height at highest tip of bottom row keycaps

The last two measurements are especially important, because the cases are slightly trapezoidal. Measurements in metric system appreciated  ;)

Will update OP and PM everyone who has PMed me.

Big thanks to riotonthebay for the first order!


Some additional updates:

- $5.00 surcharge if you're sending in measurements, to cover the time/cost of creating the mockup.
- Photo of handle option ($8) coming soon. Will look something like this: http://www.vshopu.com/item/0342-1512/0342-1512_01.jpg

I'm super excited for it :). I lug my keyboards around a lot but have started leaving whatever sits in my Hammer case at home since it's heavy and I'm afraid of hurting it. This is a small price to pay for a made-to-fit case that will keep everything safe.

Thanks for offering such a cool service!

They save even more space by eliminating extra pockets -- there is just enough extra room at the end of the case to place a neatly-folded mini-USB cable.

Anyway, intelli, thanks for allowing custom measurements! As soon as I get my JD40, I'll definitely be placing an order for that (jdcarpe still has to build it :rolleyes:).

This first batch is just black synthetic, but I can hook you up with a custom material for a small extra charge (should be in the neighborhood of $10-20 for most materials). PM me what you are looking for and I will give you a quote.

I would like a black one for my Leopold FC660M with red contrast stitching.

Also; shipping to The Netherlands?

The velcro is pretty strong. But tell you what: I'll apply 2x velcro for you to ensure a completely secure fit.  :) No charge.

OK, update: We are going to limit the first batch to 10 orders instead of 15 because we're getting a lot of special customization requests. We want to make sure everything is on time and not rushed.

First round orders are CLOSED!

The second round will start as soon as we get all of these shipped, which will be within 30 days or less. We're also going to get some units in-stock and ready for instant purchase. :)


Users with confirmed orders for round 1:

riotonthebay
Vibex
JaccoW
billnye29
xauser (2 cases)
Dreamre
esko997
skcheng (2 cases)

Some of you are waiting on various info from me - handle pictures, custom material samples, etc. Just hold tight and I'll be in touch as soon as I can!
