Are the caps being made by Gateron this time Ivan? Or is that still a little ways off?

Bravo on the inclusion of all the 1800  keys.  What is the stem spacing on the 6x space bar?

Order submitted.

I was able to try out this set at keycon and it was true PBT joy. geniekid showcased the blanks and Joey Quinn had the black on black. I loved them both so much, so I ordered one blank and one US Int. :thumb:

Edit: Also, just FYI, the examples I saw had both scoops AND nibs in case anyone was curious.

Yeah, from Gateron. The 6x spacebar is exactly the same as Cherry 6x spacebar. Yes, the 1.5 / 1u mods will have the same legends as the corresponding 1.25 key.

Ah, so this is a different manufacturer from the last Black on Black group buy? What kind of differences can we expect? Nibs/Scoops/Thickness/etc?

Are any of the r4 1u keys going to have a "fn" type text?

In the previous round these keys were blank.

What's the MOQ for Gateron?  I'm sure there will be lots of interest at these price points.

Sure, I can make the extra 1u key be whatever. Fn, a Cherry logo...

So essentially a rerun of some of the previous rounds. A.k.a. Ivan's Dyesub PBT revisited� (Round 5) :P

Still waiting for my Round 3 set to arrive. I was hoping to put these on an FC660M but I would need to source an extra 2.25x shift key.

Just a quick question to the set.
What lettering would the marked keys would have in a normal US dyesub set?

101070-0

Just wanted to know wether or not it fits perfect with a 1800 layout.
With blanks there would be only one R2 1u and one R3 1u missing to have a perfect fit for a 1800 layout...

Would it be possible to get those two keys with a blank set?

These sets aren't really fit for an 1800... there is not enough row E keys for the nav cluster, or row D -, row C +... and if it's a winkey one the 1u would have wrong legends instead of Ctrl, Alt...

Most likely the 3 'extra' row B 1u keys will be something like menu, Fn, a Cherry logo or something other novelty.

The previous groupbuy should be done 2 months before this one. Usually production time is around that long, so probably delivery in August?

Good point.  I was trying to use it as shorthand for the short shift, offset caps, 6x space, 1x 0 and whatnot.

65 is a steal for a thick cherry profile PBT keyset like this. Pretty much all keysets ever made are/were more expensive than this other than cheap TaoBao junk.

Indeed. With the exception of thin ABS or thin Taobao PBT keycaps everything else is much more expensive.
Dolch was $110 for the base set and Macross DSA was close to $150 for an entire set.
Even the previous Black on Black set was $75.

Not knocking you if you simply cannot afford it btw. Just saying that for thick PBT keycaps these are really cheap. :)
