Do you have an ETA for the GB? I don't remember if it has been asked already.

Joined in for a HHKB layout case and a mid piece. I wish it is not too opaque. :)

We're looking at about a month and a half/2 months for completion

Finally found my "box o random CF plates". Closest thing I could find to 1.5mm 3k plain weave was 1.05mm 0-90 uni. The different weave shouldn't make any difference in this case. The fact that it's 33% thinner does make it less rigid.

I did a laboratory grade tensile strength test using a quality assurance jig used by aerospace companies.







With two full dr pepper cans on top and the ~9" plate suspended at the very ends, there is a less than 1mm bend in the middle.

Obviously this is not scientific but I do this to show some of the folks who are not so familiar with CF how strong a material it is.

Although this is a thin and simple case it should be plenty rugged for all of us. :thumb:

Thanks for the ETA.


Is it big blue saw that does the mid piece as well? Did we get a big discount compared to order it aside as an individual?

Yep, all of this is being done through big blue saw. And yeah, the price difference for both the case and mid for a 1-off compared to a group like this is pretty substantial

Ok so the case changed a bit over the weekend, it now supports Korean boards with flipped enter stabilizers and the weird 6u infinity bottom row.
People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

The dumber the reason the more it must be done

Awesome. So it still supports the 1x 1.5x 7x 1.5 x 1x too right? When you say flipped enter stabilizers these are the holes for cherry stabs?

Hum OK I was wondering because an opaque mid piece is less appealing to me than a milky one. So I was wondering how much it would cost me if I shall contact them by myself to ask for a milky mid piece suiting this case. If you happen to know that price, do you mind PM it to me? Otherwise I'll just try to contact them.

Thanks Hwood and Joey for your work. ;)

Is there a possibility to put some feet under the case if we want a non flat board? Like holes for screws or something alike?

Not going to speak for the OP, but generally putting holes into CF should be avoided.  Would definitely recommend stick-on feet.

I like to Velcro on Sorbithane hemispheres for feet. That way I can remove them for portability. And they come in a ton of sizes.

Yeah, you don't want to mess w/ the dust from that stuff. Rubber bump-ons will be the way to go

You could actually use those since they are hollow and don't have a screw sticking out. Just got to figure out a solution to """glue """ them at the bottom of the case.

A solution could be to use double face Velcro. You apply one hand on the feet and the other one on the bottom case. They usually come with a glued face.

I've never ordered at Gon's so I don't know what to expect from it. Isn't it possible find some on Taobao or something alike? The feet of the RS84 come from China IIRC not from Korea. Perhaps we could ask to Qtan if he has some to sell.

I can look on TB later. GONs shipping is usually $25.

I've also looked at conical feel for audio equipment but they are all too big or very expensive.

Just making sure but the standard case option includes both the upper and lower plates right?

Suppose that's true.

In for a regular case with acrylic midpiece.

Sorry guys, but my internet has really been all over the place recently. I'll try to get invoices out, but it'll be sporadic as I'm at the mercy of my internet right now

Invoices going out now. If your invoice says it's due on the 3rd, it's because I'm an idiot who sometimes forgets to change the date. Invoices are due the 10th. I'm leaving orders open during this time, but no matter when you order invoices are due the same day. Unpaid orders without reason will be canceled

Did all the invoice go out? I'm asking because your last post made it sound like it is the case however I didn't get mine.

I believe he is slowly working through them.  He has said that he has been having ISP issues lately, so it is most likely taking longer than normal.

yeah after reading his post again, I figured I misinterpreted it the first I read. My bad, I was just afraid I was forgotten. :)

I'm still waiting on mine too. I'd assume he's going through them in order, so I'll probably be one of the last to get my invoice.
