Please stand by!






CLICK HERE TO CHECK YOUR ORDER STATUS





ORDER FORM IS CLOSED




PARTS OFFERED

Universal60 plates - DESIGNED BY JDCARPE - 25/30$ - original plates used in my two GBs before. Reliable and a favourite design by JDcarpe. Supports almost any layout imaginable. If you want winkeyless or HHKB layouts, without the winkeys i suggest going for the proprietary HHKB/winkeyless plates for better looks.



GON Nerd60 MEKANISK edition - 60$ - available in the exclusive colours mint and white. Read about the PCB here.



and will of course be available in mintblue colour!


Stabilisers - 8$ - available in both 7u and 6.25u from GON

HHKB and winkeyless plates -  UNIVERSAL  - DESIGNED BY JDCARPE - 25/30$ - these plates doesn NOT have a cutout where there are no keys used in the specific layout. This looks much better than looking through the plate and onto the PCB when there is no switch there.

Winkeyless(these are merged to a universal design in the final revision)


HHKB(these are merged to a universal design in the final revision)


These are MX compatible plates for custom 60% builds. They are not made for the original HHKB.

The winkeyless plates are 1.5u - covered 1u - 1.5u - 7u- 1.5u - covered 1u - 1.5u
1.75u + 1u or 2.75u shift on the right side.
UNIVERSAL (ISO/ANSI)
Stepped caps lock.
This is for your OG fans-
Covered means that you can't put a switch there.

The HHKB plates are : covered covered 1.5u- 1u - 1.5u - 7u - 1u - 1.5u - covered 1.5u
1.75u + 1u or 2.75u shift on the right side.
UNIVERSAL (ISO/ANSI
Covered means you can't put a switch there.




ADDITIONAL INFO

Please contact my mail rather than PMs if you have any questions:
support@mekanisk.co


The only thing you need is keycaps and a case, which can be cheap, or expensive depending on the build you want to go for.

SEPA will have a small currency exchange fee of 2,19
PayPal will have a 4% fee





Thanks to JDcarpe for the designs!

Cool you are offering winkeyless plates.

Would you consider also offering winkeyless with 1u keys between the 1.5 mods on the bottom row, and a stepped capslock?

That's already possible with the universal plate I think

Yeah it is, and the universal plate could be used with cases that have built in win blockers.

I was just wondering since he made one just for boards with blockers.  ANSI only option would be really nice also  ;D

Waiting for the order form to understand the details.  I have the royal glam wooden case coming from Massdrop soon, I'm thinking this would be perfect for it.  Now... which switches??  I've got zelios 65s, cherry blue, cherry red, cherry brown and matias click already.  Need something different from the Gateron world... maybe browns?

Pricing is now up.

I will run for a little under a month from the ordering starts. If we don't reach MOQ, we will continue past the 1 month mark.

I promise you, it has been asked.

Due to the postal courier here and their package size limitations, it will be very expensive to ship a TKL plate. I am looking into it though, and it will be available as soon I have figured it out!

Colours are still being finalized. I need to limit the options so we don't get any rushed orders with low quality anodizing, but at the same time give a wide variety of options. It will be anounced soon.

Thanks for the support!

I will be offering Gateron browns here, if that is what you want. The group buy is mainly for 60% mechanical keyboard parts though.

As an engineer who works with CFRP on a regular basis, can you explain more? I assume these are just dyed/painted for the top layer ply right? Prepregs don't come in silver as far as I know (but then again, the prepregs I work with are used for structural purposes, not particularly concerned with aesthetics)

Are diodes, resistors, and SMDs all presoldered on the PCB?
Cherry stabilizer and PCB mounted switches compatible?

What toolkit is needed to program the board?
In for at least a PCB or two and a plate.

1. Diodes and Resistors were soldered from last GB so I assume they will be this round.
2. SMDs you will need to do yourself. RGB smds are not compatible with GON.
3. Cherry Stabs? What kind? Plate or PCB...? PCB mounted stabs is a yes.

Toolkit? GON has software made for dummies like ourselves.

Just a may be stupid question. On the layouts it states on both options, Winkeyless and HHKB, that the spacebar is 7u... Why not 6.25? In HHKB makes even more sense, isn't it?

I guess because having a HHKB layout with 6.25u spacebar would be asymmetrical. Also the PCB wouldn't support 1.25u+1u on the sides (I don't think... but I could be wrong)

this is correct - you can't really make a 100% copy of the hhkb on a mx keyboard, as all the universal pcb's etc. are designed around either 1.25 - 1.25 - 1.25 - 6.2 or 1.5 - 1 - 1.5 - 7, so the best way to make it look as hhkb as possible is to just remove the 1.5x mods on the side.

When does this gb open sir? and when will it close?
I got boards.

Just a may be stupid question. On the layouts it states on both options, Winkeyless and HHKB, that the spacebar is 7u... Why not 6.25? In HHKB makes even more sense, isn't it?
HHKB uses 6u. 7u just makes it look nice and symmetrical.

PCB support for the real layout just isn't there especially with all the universal 60 PCBs.

Symmetry isn't a good thing in my opinion tho. Love the unsymmetrical look of a real hhkb and things to be unsymmetrical in general.

Resist the symmetry.

7u is also because it's basically winkeyless layout (with winkeys), minus the far left and far right 1.5u mods.

Hey!

The orders are now open.

I made the decision to cut out the switches of this group buy due to multiple reasons, I am very sorry for those that intended to buy these from me. Luckily they are available elsewhere.

Let me know immediately if there are any problems with the order form.

I will update with stats and such later.

Thanks for your patience, if we want this GB to go through, I need as many orders as possible. The MOQ for the PCBs are 120.
