Australia Keyboard Modding Service [Based in Sydney]
« on: Sat, 15 November 2014, 04:04:49 »
Available Services:
I am able to do most things except stickering. That takes far too much time! As of the 20/04/15, I won't have terribly much time to dedicate to this hobby and I will be scaling this service down. This means I will no longer be sourcing parts on your behalf, if you wish to do any modifications or builds, you must buy all the parts yourself. If it's for a repair, I can (at my discretion) procure parts.

Requests for quotes are to be made through this form or feel free to email me:
http://goo.gl/forms/i6RF2llNaK

You can expect a response within 48 hours or as my schedule permits.

I am now charging on a case by case basis. Don't fret, small repairs will remain at about 10 AUD (usually less).

Pick up and drop off remains available. I live in the Lower North Shore area.
For those living out of Sydney, shipping is the only option. I will try ship return via Express Post so you can get things ASAP and I will keep shipping costs reasonable.

If you wish for items to be delivered straight to my home, that is an option which you can discuss with me through a PM.

Feedback

So far, I've served one person a Reddit user name /u/ArvinM who does have an account here but I can't remember its name!

My Heatware URL is this: http://www.heatware.com/eval.php?id=97840. You may look here for feedback for people I have served and it's no longer empty!

At last!  Good one!  I hope it works out.

Suggestion: setup a Heatware account and cross-reference it to your GH account in profile preferences.  Encourage people to give you feedback.  Pretty soon you should rack up a history of positive feedbacks to use as a reference.

But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Awesome! I've got two KBT Pure boards with minor issues that I'm pretty sure are caused by loose solder joints, I'd love to send them to you for repair. Don't think plateless boards agree with me, have a feeling I'm a little bit too rough when changing caps :/

It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

Also holding off on offering lubing. I'm trying to find cheaper sources of it. As for stickers I don't think I will he offering it soon simply because of how much more time it takes.

Congratulations :)

If you go into Profile - Forum Profile and scroll down, there is a field where you can enter your Heatware user ID so that you get a Heatware icon under your avatar on GH.  Like mine (little red flame icon, except very few people have left me feedback).

While personally I have never built a dox, I have built a phantom and the dox is similar in construction. I am also (most likely) going to purchase a dox myself.

Costs will be something like this (not including postage)
Basic assembly (just pcb assembly, no switches) - 20 AUD
Full assembly (everything in a standard massdrop kit) - 35 AUD
Custom switches (no lubing at this point) - 10 AUD plus parts cost.

Orders for custom switches will take longer to be processed as I will be ordering from sprit I'm one go.

Estimated pricing: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1nQno8zZFI3hsbeBDCKwD8iVH8QhwPVrUyHLNO8ciFNQ/edit?usp=sharing

I don't have a need for your services at the moment, but it is great to know there's someone local that I can call on if needed.

Oh, and I really admire that your dad got you involved in such things from an early age.

Hi there,

I most certainly received the response. I haven't had time to reply over the weekend and I am still at work at this late hour with my father finishing up some testing of some panels destined for a data centre. It has run seriously over time and my entire weekend was given to that.

Really sorry about that! I will reply in a bit when I get home. Probably about 10 to 20 mins.

Just a quick heads up. I won't be able to receive new requests for jobs until the 5th of December. I will be away camping with no access to power or internet!  :eek: None the less, feel free to fill out a form and I will get back to you when I return on Friday.

Small bump and small changes to the service.

This year is my first senior year in high school and damn is my school ramping up the pressure. Unfortunately this leaves me with much less time to do things related to this hobby. I will only be doing small repair services and, possibly some modifications provided I have the time (which looking at the amount of all nighters... not much :(). Small repairs encompass a few bad LEDs, diodes, switches etc. Feel free to use the form or just email me at jersernau@gmail.com for any enquiries and I will see if I will have the time to complete it.

Unfortunately I will most probably be discontinuing full custom keyboard assemblies simply because they take up a decent bit of time (quite a bit especially when I have to hunt down parts). If you are able to procure all the parts on your own and all that's required is a bit of soldering, I could possibly do it, depends on what you want really.

Have a great day everyone!

Regards,
Jason

Life/study first!

Still, if someone needs a switch changed in an emergency or something simple and is willing to pay you to do it, it is an option in Australia, something we were previously lacking.

Thank you for continuing to offer a small service, and good luck with the study :)

Going to be getting in contact with you once I've got my hands on some MX Clears or Greys, need a switch and plate swap on a Filco I've got sitting here. Hoping to have the switches in the next couple of weeks! Tried doing it myself but I'm too bash-brained, managed to leave a couple of switch pins in the PCB when I removed my first switch. After that I figured I'd be better off having a pro look at it :P

Other than the switches everything is good to go, already got a plate and some plate mount Cherry stabs. Will also give the board a thorough clean with some PCB cleaner.
It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

Feel free to! (Though I do have to prioritise IRL commitments as the drama coach).

Hi there. are you still providing services? I think I need my poker3 keyboard to be fix. I have a broken switch that I tried to fix, but only ended up destroying that particular switch.  :'(

I can easily replace a switch for you. Where abouts are you located? It will be much easier if you're local (Sydney area)

Hey mate,

Recently ordered the infinity ergodox from massdrop but I'm getting cold feet about the soldering. Would you be willing to solder the PCBs for me, I'll be providing all the parts (switches/LEDs)
