I love the spherical vintage keycaps!

I will definitely get a set when the site/store is up! Are you going to offer them in more colors than the classic brown?
That set of caps is SA Choclatier, a old set sold by massdrop i believe. From what I understand, he won't be selling caps, just the board and maybe sleeves and wrist rests as part of the group buy. If you want spherical caps like that, you can get SA profile caps from Pimp my Keyboard, Massdrop, here, and MechMarket on reddit. Maxkeys SA sets are some what different, but very similar, with less lead time, and cheaper. Just keep an eyey out.

Thanks for the useful info, much appreciated. I will definitely having a look to both sites, since I really want these type of keycaps and I have been straggling to find some.

Hi everyone, just sorting the last bits out. Will open GB very soon. Trying to get color samples from my anodizer has been a PITA and probably wont happen, website is opening soon, and will make a GH thread over in the GB section soon. Thank you!

Is this board the pink variety koob? I can't believe how flipping amazing it looks and can only imagine putting GMK Laser on that bad boy!
Haha thanks sir. That color is PURPLE, not PINK.

Thankfully my birthday is November 3rd, so I get a free pass at treatin myself... albeit a week late.
Happy early birthday :)

Really excited for this. Would the first GB be limited in quantity/require a raffle to get in?
Open to all, no raffle, no limited quantity!

Would agree greatly with the above and like to know the same thing, also the website that you linked to is just a notify via email website, might have misread something somewhere about what was on the site :)
Thanks
Website is almost done, and will be open soon for the GB

Hi bud. As much as I would love to offer them, people are very picky about their switches and especially their keycaps, so I'm leaving that up to them. If you super truly want SA CHOCOLATIER, shoot me a PM and ill sell you them.

HAAAAAAA I'm better than you by 1 entire day. I also get to treat myself though :P.
Happy early bday as well!

welp I know what I'm getting for my birthday (nov 10) >< this'll be my first kit so I imagine the work it takes to get it built but I'm excited to learn!
Happy early bday too lol! Hope you like the kit! But remember, its a group buy, it wont be made for a few months

Hey i dont blame you haha. Colors change from cam to cam, edits and the time of day or lighting. Sometimes in person the cases look very mirrory, sometimes they look very crisp. Really weird, hard to pinpoint the right colors. But thanks for the good wishes!

Well that makes me feel better! I just want a case to go with laser so I can justify both purchases.

Oo thats going to be a tough one! Many colors it can match up with. Maybe pink?! Heres a pic of the purple with Skeletor. Its more of a lavender.

Dang man that's gorgeous! If you end up getting pink anodized samples you'll have to post it next to the lavender skeletor caps but as it stands that my case I'm going for :) Thanks!!

Shoot i meant magenta not lavender. The case is more magenta than a deep purple. Its just that purple has so many shades. But with the GB so close it might be hard to get samples in. I'm trying though! The renders are close, and you are always welcome :)

Magenta works for me lol and if you don't get samples in time it's all good, I can only imagine how hectic it's gotta be setting everything up!

I saw that you changed QMK support from definite no go to getting ported. Could you elaborate? I am too invested into QMK to get a board without it, so this will decide my decision if I might pick it up or not. Thanks

Hey! A very intelligent reddit community member named u/jetpacktuxedo messaged me about him being able to put QMK on my stock PCB. I sent him a PCB the other day and according to him, he's got QMK running on it, RGB and all. No physical modifications needed or anything. The thing is, firmware is firmware. The PCB was flashed with boot mapper firmware, but he knows how to flash QMK on the PCB.

As for my PCB not having a physical reset button, boot mapper PCBS allow you to put the PCB in flash mode if you power it on while holding a certain shift key or something. He knows more than i do, and hopefully he writes a wonderful tutorial on it all, which i will then post everywhere i can and credit him!

He has also ported QMK to a winkeyless bface pcb, an he wrote a tutorial on it online if you are hungry for extra info. Cheers!

QMK is good news.  I know you want this board to be accessible and didn't want people to have to rely on a difficult programming method, but now we have both!  I probably would have been able to survive with bootmapper, but I really think a board of this size needs QMK to be fully realized.  Punctuation implementation alone becomes much better due to tap dancing, etc.   :thumb: :thumb:

I'm a noob when it comes to QMK programming.  If would be great if you can host a repo sharing other member's layout.  I can probably learn when I read what others are doing.

If the pcb is cherry stabilizer compatible, would it also work for zeal stabilizers like the one in here?https://zealpc.net/collections/switches/products/zealstabilizers

Got physical color samples in. Please note, these colors change drastically based on time of day, lighting camera pics, monitors and what not. Take them with a pinch of salt. And the actual Pearls could come out totally different unfortunately.
Pictured here are green, pink, blue, silver, orange and yellow (kinda gold)
