Ordered! Hopefully I was one of the first 10. I'll give my thoughts when I receive them.
How does one become so interested in a thing like keyboards? When you realize you use a keyboard more than any other tool in your life.

The domes can be packed in a envelope so it'll be very cheap for shipping.


Yeah, $61.65 shipping for EU (Croatia) is quite cheap  :(
Wtf.

almost put my order in but was getting $37 quotes for shipping to Aus for 70-110 packs  :eek:

does that sound right? or does that quote only go for US orders

Just went to order- shipping to Calgary is over $30USD for the 110 pack? That can't be right...

Paying 50% of the subtotal on shipping isn't what I had hoped for. How much more is USPS?

Hm, originally I considered using light domes for alphas + arrow keys, and heavy domes for F-keys and the 'Insert'/'Print Screen' blocks. But now that the moment as arrived, I'm concerned that the 15g difference between the two will be a bit much.

I'm curious, for those of you that have placed your orders, what did you decide on?

I could try a sample pack, but I have my doubts that pressing on the domes directly will be representative of what it would be like to type on in practice (that is, unless I open up my NT and cut the existing sheet, close the case back up, etc...).

I ordered the 70 light domes for alphas, numbers, and function keys, and 25 heavies for mods, spacebar, arrow keys, and the home/insert/delete section.

I thought the lights were going to be in the 50g range, but should still be nice and I was worried 65 everywhere would be too heavy.

The stock 55g on my Realforce is a tad too heavy for me, so I ordered  a 70-pack.
The plan is to replace all the alphas and arrows' domes, while leaving the nav cluster + the F row + the spacebar untouched.

Hi eeveryone,

the shipping quotes are unfortunately accurate for the service that is automated to your location.

The calculation is done live, and is not "prequoted" for destinations. You can see it change as you actively change the zip code or state or country.

We're making the following changes at this stage
- If you're international, we can process you manually
- Email support@keyclack.com with your address + desired thing
- You'll get usps first class international
- If you're in a USA Territory (i.e. Guam), we'll be fixing that, as it should be considered APO/USA/Domestic.

Later this weekend:
- International should be swapped over to First Class International
- However, if your package exceeds $150, then an express service is selected

These changes might take some time to implement, most likely end of next week as we update the shipping infrastructure.

Any interest in a 88-pack? That should cover both ANSI and ISO tenkeyless Realforce keyboards.

EDIT: The price difference between 70 and 110 domes is just $16, or 40 cents per dome. So a 88-pack (or perhaps just round up to 90 in case of defects) would be $57.2 ($58 for a 90-pack). Not sure if it's worth the hassle to Keyclack to add the two extra packs though, but just wanted to throw it out there.

I went with the 70 pack for my novatouch. I'm just going to go variable weight and use the NT domes on my esc+f-keys and the arrow cluster with these BKE's on the remaining keys

You'll have to cut them out, but you can keep most of the sheet intact if you're just taking the top row off.

Everything will be out on Friday, and might leak over to a Monday / Tuesday pick up.

We're doing some small QC / counting to make sure the bags are accurate to the count.

--

To comment on the 88 dome thing: so I looked this over before we put together the packages, and while I agree that having the domes available in that package can help, the overall idea of having an extra 2 Skus, (and space to separate them), is a tad on the "should i" part. The sorting fees, were already a tad high, seeing that the domes are super light, and the deviation in weight is very small, compared to lets say... any gateron/cherry switch on a gram scale.

So I lubed my FC990C, and the board feels a bit less tactile. This seems to be because there is a little bit more force required to push down on the key. (I used Zeal's thick lube.)

Should the 45g BKE Redux domes help in this regard, or would the impact of the lube still overwhelm the tactility of the domes?

Anyone have tips for storing domes and domesheets that you aren't currently using? I was thinking of storing them in a shallow tupperware but I'm not sure if storing them slightly folded is a good idea.
How does one become so interested in a thing like keyboards? When you realize you use a keyboard more than any other tool in your life.
