Gonna be a while before I can do it, but my plan was to go with this guide

Thanks! I was looking for something like this.

This appears to be the brand of drawer liner he used, the size, price, and appearance match.

Yes, that's the exact one I got. Already have it and put some in my fc660c. The roll comes with plenty.

If the goal is sound dampening, you would be much better off getting a sheet of sorbothane acoustic dampening rubber. Also available from Amazon. It is a little more expensive, but it is amazing.

Ryan, do you have any updates on Tactical Gray replacement eta? I know the special order powders could be longer/unknown, but curious if the cases have been sent off for finish removal.

zslane have you used it for this purpose? What thickness would you recommend?

I have purchased and used XCEL neoprene ordered off Amazon. It's 1/4 or 1/8 inch thick sheets, dirt cheap compared to any specialty material and I'm sure 99% as effective. You can get a roll that's enough to do 10 boards for less than what the specialty sheets cost.

Please note any brand will work I only added the brand name of what I've ordered in the past for ease of looking up.

zslane have you used it for this purpose? What thickness would you recommend?

I used a single 1/10" sheet, which I cut into the necessary shapes, to fill the bottom of a walnut Datamancer case for one of my Pok3rs:

177465-0

Without the sorbothane, the bottom-out and upstroke noise would echo inside the case in a really unappealing way. The sorbothane pretty much killed that noise dead, and now you can hear the light click of the MX blues more clearly since it is no longer drowned out by all that other noise. It also added a nice bit of extra weight to the keyboard (sorbothane is surprisingly dense and heavy, and the walnut case was surprisingly light).

I also used the same stuff in the bottom of a Lambo 60% case that houses my KBP V60 mini (with LightCycle DSA keycaps), though to be honest, it really didn't need it.

Yes, they were dropped off last week. Beyond that, I would say a month or less, though with shop it's highly variable and sometimes hard to predict. The Retro Refrigerator and Enigma Black should be the fastest, as those are colors they carry in stock.

The plate is the same. In addition to my testing, many folks have used it with that keyboard without reporting any problems.

Are these little specks on the lower part of the bezel due to the powder-coating process?

Those are just pieces of dust. I tried my best to stamp out any dust in photoshop but forgot to do the keyboard itself (focused on the keycaps).

If you want examples of what the powder-coating looks like, check these:

Thanks, I thought those dust specks were little lumps of powder from the coating process.

hi - does it sound dampening matters on the case material? ie. plastic vs alum.. and on the type of switches?  ie. mx vs topre

I just picked up a FC660C and a HHKB Pro JP, very interested in my first mod.

I believe it helps a lot with MX switches. Unless you have silent reds/blacks, you will be dealing with bottom-out and upstroke noise, and anything you can do to dampen that is worth doing, IMO.

It isn't nearly as necessary with Topre switches which are soft on bottoming out and silent on the upstroke if you install silencing rings (which I highly recommend). So a NovaTouch doesn't need any sound dampening inside the case, IMO. I don't think an aluminum case will make any difference in that regard, but I won't know for sure until I get mine.

Hi Norbauer, I keep going back to your GB entry page.  Those photos... I don't think my willpower can hold me back much longer... 

Can you explain the difference between the "medium texture" Enigma Gray and the "wrinkle texture" of Royal Wrinkle?  I love heavy textures, but I'd go for gray over black if the textures are the same/very similar.

Sure! Happy to help. The main difference you'd notice is in the pattern of the texture. The wrinkle texture is just like it sounds; if you look at it up close you can see very small/fine convoluted lines. The Enigma Gray texture is more just like a random smattering of tiny bumps, which when taken at the macro scale form a bit of texture. The wrinkle is probably a bit thicker, but they're both pretty flat and even than you'd probably imagine for a texture finish, so it doesn't impinge on the clearance area for the keys or anything like that. I hope this makes some sense, but just let me know if you need any further clarification. :)

Okay, then I take it that the feel would be about the same - pretty smooth, maybe with a little more grit/bumpiness for the wrinkle finish.  The main difference would be the visual appearance - either "wrinkly/wavy" or "pitted/sandy" like these two pictures:


Does that sound right?

Yes, that is correct. Those images somewhat exaggerate the texture since they're so magnified, but it conveys the general difference. :)

There were very few of those, but those anodized cases are actually being packed today at the factory, going out to me in the next few days. As soon as I have them, of course, I'll turn them around within a day or so.

Thanks so much! That's why I'm really happy with the powder coating vendor I've finally found. Powder coat does usually have a pretty mottled and wavy texture. To some extent that is an unavoidable inherent part of how the product works, but this place does a great job of minimizing it. :)

I have tried to follow along the best I could forgive me if this has been answered.

I believe originally the cases were going to be sent directly to oco but norbauer elected to personally inspect them prior.  If this is correct have they been shipped to oco yet? 

thanks in advance.

That is correct, and yes, they are on their way to LA now. There was a slight shortfall from the factory for the Originative orders, however, so a few people will have to wait an extra week or two for theirs. I've been so busy today I haven't even had a chance to update Sheraton on all this yet. It's on my list for the evening.  :confused:

Will these few missing Originative cases go through to you as well for additional QC or fly straight from the manufacturer to Los Angeles?

For anyone else who got a Retro case looking for a cable, Zap! cables did a great job matching mine. Used Turquoise paracord with clear techflex.

Wow we're basically keeb brothers I went with maxkey Portland on mine though (black with a novatouch). Did you hypersphere and lube it as well?
No lube but KBDfans silencing rings on the way (already used on an HHKB with huge success). And Portland is niiiiiice!
