Any chance this could come with polished steel weight?

I will probably be interested in this since I have to miss x60

The price point of the x60 was a bit higher than what I'm comfortable with at this point, but whose to say in a few months.   I assume this would cost a bit more just in the added material and machining

The TrueFox is a 65% while this will be a 75% with a proper F-row.

Whitefox is 65%, but if you mean the blocker then it will be similar.

Any chance this could come with polished steel weight?

The price point of the x60 was a bit higher than what I'm comfortable with at this point, but whose to say in a few months.   I assume this would cost a bit more just in the added material and machining
Probably will have a polish steel weight, but not sure how to pull it off again.

Price point will be lower, but it depends on the quantity.

Correct, I'm not sure if I should get my own PCB developed (but I will be for the future). The polycarbonate bottom piece won't happen as it wouldn't match the top, but I'm not sure (yet).

I would like to se the bottom row layout possibilities @xondat with the blocker-option. Cant wrap my head around it really.


Of course you can combine the two bottom rows. The red 1u represents the blocker.

If you ever come out with a 40% :D
Well it would be the heaviest 40% yet...

Not a fan of polycarbonate bottom either,
but I could imagine polycarb plates to be interesting.

Makes more sense on PCBs that allow for top mounted smd leds tho I guess.

I'm honestly not a fan of LEDs but I have to appeal to a wider target audience. I might create a form soon and get some info regarding lights etc.

Polycarbonate plates are something I should test, but I'm not sure I feel about them being at maximum 2.5mm thick.

Totally understand xondat and I would very much respect your choice of sticking with quality materials vs adding leds.

Im usually a white leds if any kind of guy.
Hate all that rgb gamer looking stuff popping up everywhere.


On the other hand I do have a gon crystal with white leds, and prefer top smd over in switch leds.


Pretty sure the plate isn't thicker then 2.5mm either and it's actually pretty rigid while still giving a slightly softer feel.

Pretty sure the plate itself would be strong enough but I'm concerned about the attachments points.

I love xondats concept for custom keyboards. If you have a great idea, don't water it down to make it appealing to everyone but stick to your concept and make something special instead. Chunky aluminium keyboards just don't go well with RGB underlight. If you want light under your keyboard, get a light keyboard ;)

I am working on a different series of boards which will incorporate LEDs much better than this, it's probably one of the reasons I want to keep this one pure.

See above :)) I agree with you though, diffusers are cool n all but I prefer the aesthetic of pure aluminium.

I think the attachments should be more than enough, they're very study (but I've never handled polycarbonate that detailed before so I'm not sure).

Cross posting, but these are the plates.





Universal plates are good, but visually not the best so this is the best solution in my opinion.

What do you think of this bit on the plates?

No biggie on SS plates, aluminium might be a little thin there.

that small section near the left alt seems a bit like it will break easily
I get what you mean but through personal experience it seems fine given the use. It's just over 1mm at the thinnest point.

Most likely winkeyless as I can't have my own made quick enough, but I will have my own made that will support this in the future.

I've been wanting a 75% board.  I'll be watching this one.

As an outside possibility, can the PCB be put in backwards to allow built-in negative tilt?  If not, I'll just stick to putting the front up on a wrist rest as I've been doing.

Never heard of that before... No, because the USB port would have to be on both sides to allow for that.

Looking forward to this. Love the dual layer case design. With it being dual layer I would love to see a acrylic spacer used for a diffuser in between the two like the Mech27 or ZZ's that have been done.

Ahhh, good point.  I can keep doing the wrist rest for the negative tilt.  A 75% is high on the keyboard priority list for me so definitely watching this one with interest.

I need to try my hand at 75% with this board. The X60 prototype looks very nice.

Just for confirmation, would the 1.25u 1.25u 1.25u 6.25u 1u 1u 1u 1u 1u 1u bottom row be possible with the un-blocked case upper half?

I love everything about this. Keep it metal, keep it simple like you envisioned. No need for LEDs or things like that, that's just my opinion. The board speaks for itself. This will be another addition to my 75% collection (my favorite layout) and you can count me in, even you do a smaller group buy at first due to the Holidays.
