estimated lead time is 6 weeks. i am almost certain that i can't do better than that. i'm going to do my best to get my shops moving, but i use these guys regularly, and they are giving me big breaks on this stuff already, so i'm not going to rush them inappropriately.

I am offering FREE assembly service for the first 5 individuals ( just post in the thread ) that perhaps don't have any soldering equipment but would still want to purchase this keyboard.

I would prefer it to be in the USA, all I ask is for you to pay the shipping.

If you are happy with the assembly and want to send any money for the service please message Mkawa so that he can get the money to Smallfry's family.

**** IF YOU ARE INTEREST IN THIS SERVICE PM ME SO THAT I CAN GIVE YOU INSTRUCTIONS ON WHAT TO PUT IN THE NOTES WHEN ORDERING THE KEYBOARD****

I have spoken with Mkawa and he will combine all the kits and ship them to me. I will then split that cost between the individuals, this way you will only pay shipping from me ( USA, Conus ) to you + the split cost of shipping to me instead of paying shipping twice ( Thank you Mkawa ).

If you don't have the switches, I can purchase them ( 50 pack ) from Mechanicalkeyboards for $29 including shipping
Colors available as of this post from MK

RED
BLUE
GREEN
BROWN
BLACK
GRAY
WHITE
CLEAR

Some of the switches will require me to convert them from PCB to plate by clipping the two legs off, this will not affect the switch in any way.

I can also do a ergo-clear mod if you purchase / send me the springs.

I am including free diodes / resistor / led on caps lock ( blue / red / purple ) / spacebar stabilizer / usb connector with the assembly, you will still need to buy a teensy 2.0 which will be offered later and your choice of switches from MK or the ones you want to send me.

I thought this kit came with the teensy.

No, you will have to either cut the legs, swap the bottom of the switch or use plate mount switches.

I hate to do this but...

do you need plate mount or pcb mount switches??

Plate mount. Or you can clip the plastic "legs" off PCB mount switches.

there's going to be a limited number of bottom plate-only kits, and priority will go to the people who had notched ti top plates cut. the last few cuts are in flux though, so i'm not exactly sure how many extra bottom plate units there will be.

the link to order is on the store.

there are only really two points that need to be taken heed of when soldering up the PCB. one hookup wire needs to be run between the USB port ground and the teensy, and the teensy needs to be mounted very flush to the pcb bottom. other than that, i would say it's a good beginner project and probably easier than an ergodox.

This is a great project for learning how to solder.  Through hole soldering of resistors and switches is very basic.  Also, if you don't already have a soldering kit I highly recommend picking up the kit from Geekhackers.org.  That's the one I used when learning how to solder and if you buy it in conjunction with the Smallfry kit you'll get a second Smallfry PCB free.  I honestly think with 1 PCB you'd be hard pressed to make a mistake that's unrecoverable, but with 2 you could even end up with an extra PCB for a future project!

quick announcement: i really want to encourage people to build these themselves. to that end, and with an _extremely_ generous donation from geniekid, if you order any form of the learn to solder kit, either the cl1481 standard kit (without soldapullt or nippers), or the learn to solder special kit (with the soldapullt and snippers), and you purchase a smallfry kit, we will provide you with an _extra_ pcb, free of charge, courtesy of geniekid, in case you make a mistake while constructing your kit  :eek:

Actually that's a good question.  My understanding is you don't need the deluxe kit (with soldapullt and cutters), but I think you will need the *standard kit* that comes with the iron holder, Kester solder, additional tips, tip changing wrench, and an extension cord.  I do not believe just the iron itself will qualify for the deal.  mkawa has the final say in this matter so hopefully he will correct me if I am wrong!

It would be very similar.  You would need to solder both switches and diodes for both boards.  Maybe the LEDs you would have to solder for the Viper/Eagle would require a tiny bit more precision than the plain switch diodes for the Smallfry (the Viper/Eagle have those presoldered), but you'll need that level of precision to solder on the Teensy controller for the Smallfry anyway (the Viper/Eagle also has the controller presoldered). 

If you're going to get the Geekhacker's soldering kit and if the timing for each GB allows for it, I would echo Spamray's implied recommendation (I think) of doing the Smallfry first since 1) you'll get an extra PCB to practice on and 2) the Smallfry will be significantly less expensive than the Viper/Eagle.

I can confidently state the "standard kit" is the $79.00 one you can select when you're looking at this.

I got one of those notched top plates. Shouldn't be an issue, then?
Possible to get it without the PCB, too? Should I use the order form in the OP?

Smallfry is a very important part of this website, even almost a year after his passing.

Congrats to everyone involved on getting this to be such a success!  I wasn't here to meet Smallfry, but reading about him makes me happy :) 

I'd order but no money.

Smallfry is a very important part of this website, even almost a year after his passing.

I hope everyone enjoys their smallfry keyboards once they're all built.

I'm in the same boat. Way cool too, that they're going classy with the Ti plate/base.

I am completely blown away here. We just hit 30 orders. I let me supplier know that I will be upping the material order. At the rate these orders are coming in, I may have to bump it again before Thursday. You guys and gals are incredible. Thank you all so much for your generosity.

Also, for additional donations to the NJW foundation, please hold onto your money for now. I am still waiting to hear back from Largefry re: the status of the trust. Ideally, it's best if additional donations go directly to him. However, if you donate to geekhack via the donation buttons anywhere on this site and put "please donate this directly to the NJW foundation" or anything to that effect, I will make sure that the money gets to the NJW foundation.

I'll build 5 of these if people don't want to do themselves - will be $25 per board which I will donate 100% of.
I got boards.
