Any updates?

Mid Autumn festival ends today so updates with meaning will most likely be early next week.

Since this batch is delayed by others anyway, is there any remote chance of changing from winkeyless to winkeyed still?

production has already begun, so i'd say probably not.  you might have luck asking for a swap with someone who got the same color, though

I'm going for all metal keys which is why the unusual bottom row is going to be a bigger pain than usual. It's not like there are an abundance of affordable metal cap options. Hopefully something can be done like you suggested with a 6.25x space and whatever other combination of 1x / 1.25 / 1.5 / whatever modifiers needed to stay looking regal.

Nobody's been able to get in touch with EVE.

It's normal for him, so I wouldn't stress.

He'll probably bulk update when he send the MIRAs out.

Here we are nearing the end of the month. Any type of time frame update would be great. It is obvious that it is not going to make it by the end of the month, but an ETA would be great!

I absolutely love the shade of green on the right here:

I know it's too late to change colours anyway, but was there any reason this wasn't available when it's used on other models?

Is there a link or something from the Chinese group buy or anything where we can also see what's happening instead of "are we there yet" here?

Just in case any of you missed this update in the mira thread: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=87310.msg2514372#msg2514372

EVE recently moved his shop, and seems to now be in production again on stuff. Expect movement on this soon.

Hi guys,

First of all, an apology for lack of updates recently. EVE is just working hard on Mira SE orders. There was some difficulties working on the anodizing. It's taking a much longer time than expected. We got that going already so Moon production will resume as soon as that wraps up. Meanwhile, I really appreciates that the community is helping out each other when I'm absent.  :p

Enough of that, as for Moon, the CNC part is finished and the boards are being polished and getting ready for anodizing. Please find some raw Moon board from the link below :) You will also see some pics of brass plates as well, they look pretty nice to me  :thumb:

I thought for a while that the MOON logo on the backside of the boards had been removed but the "cuts" (not sure what to call that) for the stripes are not there either.

Well someone posted this link a few posts above and these definitely have the logo and stripes.

https://2.taobao.com/item.htm?id=560731978534

So that's a good sign considering the logo and stripes are pretty much the main feature of the board. Hopefully we wont have to late too much longer before seeing some updated pictures.

I am also wondering this.There are pictures of the group by going around on Taobaoa As a finished product and It does not have the back Plates on the board.

Well someone posted this link a few posts above and these definitely have the logo and stripes.

So that's a good sign considering the logo and stripes are pretty much the main feature of the board. Hopefully we wont have to late too much longer before seeing some updated pictures.

This is what I am referring to. As you can see in the pics, there is no logo or strips. SO one of 3 things is going on here.
The machining is not done and they are trying to perceive that production is further along than it is. Or there are 2 different versions of the board being offered. OR perhaps an 3rd string of boards just for the Japanese market with less options. Either way the pics up above from ZZ show a box full of strips and in the same group of pics no cutouts for them.. So that is where my slight confusion comes from. ALSO no logo on the back. I mean if CNC is done. than that means no logo and no strips...

That's a placeholder for the actual group buy, which has already run. You can tell by the price.

Those photos are the prototype, not a GB board.

That makes sense.
 Please feel free to make sense of the Finished CNC of the photos that ZZ posted but clearly needs more work ?

China's buy is already shipped. They were not run in tandem.

Their group buy was run about 6 weeks before this one, that's why the weights are bars, and not cutouts. They had to change the logo, but the CNC had already started. It was the last keyboard EVE did before he moved his shop, which is what the MIRA/Moon delay is being caused by.

Ok, Now I see. That is to bad I do like the China Logo better , But I do like our weights better.

Depends on when MIRA goes out. Too early to make a solid judgement.

Considering MIRA has a ways to go before it is even shipped, We will be lucky to see this board before end of January. Love the board, but wondering if tkl is even for me. I may buy something else in the meantime, especially with all the 1800s getting ready..

Likewise for me if it doesn't happen (as in arrive/delivered) by mid-January at the absolute latest.
