You'll have to wait for the SmallFry. This thread is for me to sell assembled JD40's, so that I can make a little money from assembly, using parts I currently own. :)

Actually, I can answer your question with an old song lyric: "If you've got the money, honey, I've got the time." :D

I'm usually open to working things like this out with prospective buyers through PM.

Those lovelies are from the Hyper Fuse group buy from late last year. It's a hard set to come by in the classifieds but it'll pop up again occasionally.

Does anyone have a comparison shot of this board next to a 60% board like the Poker II or HHKB? I am thinking about one for travel purposes and need some rationalization material.

There will be something in the way of a keycap set coming up very soon through [CTRL]ALT, and I promise you it won't be DSA-profile.

Mostly I am referring people to either ming's Smallfry Keyboard Kit GB or the [CTRL]ALT store for purchase. If someone really wants one built by me, they could always send me a PM and I'm sure we could work something out.
