The package arrived in London and was handled there. Just got a call from DPD, she needed my E-Mail address. I then got an E-Mail containing more info, the value was declared at 50$ so I had to pay 10.02 VAT and 10 processing fee. Paid immediatly via PayPal and I assume it will now continue it's journey to my doorstep. So far so good!
Wow that was fast. Hope you get it quickly.
My case's journey to Texas is taking a bit longer.
So on my TKL, i can use either a 6.25 or 7u stabilizer?
This PCB is compatible with both?
Is there a PCB info/specs post i am not seeing somewhere?

Thanks!

According to renders on the front and the fact there's also winkey version, it should support at least:

1.5 1u 1.5u 7u 1.5u 1u 1.5u (where the 1u's are either blockers or keys)
1.25u 1.25u 1.25u 6.25u 1.25u 1.25u 1.25u 1.25u (standard TKL)

in china, people also like to do:
1.5u, 1u (blocker), 1.25u, 6.25u, 1.25u 1.25u, 1u (blocker), 1.5u
so this might be possible as well

Just got the keyboard! Its gorgeous, but the brass weight is super scratched up. There are even scratches so deep the brass appears to be a darker color

I also received mine in today, and I also have some issues with it. Biggest one is I didn't get a pcb for the numpad. I also have some scratches on my board, and some black marks in the "c225" logo. I'm not sure what that is from.

I also have some issues. There are some scratches on the brass weight and bottom,
and worst of all, I have some flaws, such as discoloration and strains, regarding anodizing.

Never done it before but it looks straight forward - sand it with 1200 then 2000 grit sandpaper, buff it with a polish compound, then apply a few layers of lacquer.

board just arrived, not 100% pleased with the quality I must say, especially for a 400$ kit

screw holes are full of white stuff, needs some cleaning, no big deal though


bottom logo didn't properly cut out


main offender: dark spots inside the front logo, I assume it wasn't properly dried when taking out of the anodization bath and residual droplets in the corners dried out over time, leaving these marks


plus side, Titanium Gray color is spot on, finish is smooth.

testing PCB now

will build it tonight or tomorrow depending on when the box whites I ordered come in.

I received mine today, and I have the same thing on the "C225". I don't mind that as much, my issue is I'm missing the plate for the pad.

It looks so nice!  The color is amazing.  Maybe if it bothered you too much you can try to inlay it with epoxy or something?

Don't get me wrong, I love it. But like pudsy said. For $400.00 you expect a bit better. That's all. $400 is a lot to me.

i feel like i haven't said that re: this board

and personally i'd just inlay it if i got an engraving like that

i'm thinking about doing my mira's logo with a dark blue since there's an anodizing shadow in it

Here's a link to album of quite a few photos of the C225 and Camp PAD that I got today.  Mine also suffers from similar issues,
 but it looks like this weight is in okay shape.  It's a very cool keyboard.  I wish the top of the case had a brass backing like the logo on the PAD.  This did turn out more blue-green than I had hoped,
 so I don't know if I'll hang onto it.  https://imgur.com/gallery/TCiJM

looks like the inside of the case won't fit a TX87, good to know for later

Here's a shot of the weight post-polish. I could probably do better but I rushed it a little.

Eric sent me the plate I was missing for the pad and now I have everything built. The keyboard is at work right now, so I have to wait to get some combo pictures, but here is how the pad turned out:

They're not my usual cup of tea, but I've been enjoying typing on them. I went in without high expectations and so I was not let down by them. Feeling them just alone as a single switch or just with a cap on one switch they feel terrible, but when you actually put them together on a board it's quite enjoyable. For reference I generally like a nice tactile switch on the heavier side, 78g zeal is my go to (I pound tend to pound on the keys), and my favorite is BKE redux heavy. My best description of this switch is a linear switch that gets heavier as it gets toward the bottom. It's interesting. One this I will say is that they get really heavy as they get toward the bottom, I spent almost a full day typing at work last week, and my fingers were feeling a bit fatigued. This probably wouldn't have been as bad if I didn't pound on the keys so hard, they don't get heavy until the bottom, so if I wasn't slamming them it would probably be different. I'm not sure I would build another board with them, but overall I'm happy with how this one turned out. They're definitely not for everyone, but I would definitely recommend trying them out; it's a pretty different typing experience from anything else I've tried.
