GMK Olivetti - missing key - customs opened package..
« on: Thu, 21 April 2016, 13:31:06 »
I traded my Raindrop r2 to a GH user for his GMK Olivetti. The package arrived from Indonesia this morning and had a "customs opened your package" sticker on it. The keycaps look awesome but to my great dismay, the quote/double quote keycap is missing  :'(

Has anyone experienced something similar? What can I do about it?

You could try contacting this seller on Ebay: http://www.ebay.com/usr/shopon854

They get some interesting GMK keycaps and you might get lucky and they could have some of that color.
The Model-M is more plasticy than a standard metal mounting-plate Cherry MX Brown TKL keyboard.

Or contact the seller to make sure he included everything. Seems a strange key to keep back though, but you have to cover all the bases.

Can we get them to build the Alps ten feet higher and get Cherry to pay for it?

Hi man, I am here. I am pretty sure I put it right into the bag after we have deal. It was on my filco and still there when we have deal. So I think it might be your customs. Don't worry, I still intend to compensate you with a keyset as I promised in our chat on r/mk
I like mechanical keyboards

that unfortunate bro. message your seller and make sure they did not forget to include that key.


It looks like it is originative olivetti. You can also contact Sheraton, he will probably sell you that key. I am not sure about the price

This is why I don't trade overseas anymore.  Failure rate is way too high
