Extra Mechmini 2's in stock here! - https://mechkeys.ca/products/mechmini-2-0


Hey everyone! Dave from mechkeys.ca here. I want to introduce you to the Mechmini 2!





When my passion for building, buying and eventually selling mechanical keyboards began, i started looking into different form factors and layouts. After successfully creating an iconic 40% keyboard, the mechmini, i decided it was time to create a more premium version! Mechmini 2! Thank you for joining this group buy, hope you enjoy this one of a kind keyboard, and wishing you all well.

Terms & Conditions
This is a completely 100% custom designed keyboard. We hired community member /u/hineybush (Josh) to model this case and he did a fantastic job. Community member, Pearl GB runner and personal friend u/Koobaczcech (Koobae) also helped dial in some last minute changes such as the QMK reset hole, some plate changes and the Maple leaf engraving. Thanks to them and everyone else this board came out very nice!

Hey guys!

The fabulous GH mod team finally approved the post = )

We've got a few days left however, in spite of this thread taking a while to get out into the wild I think I'm going to be adding a week onto the group buy so everyone can make sure they get their mechmini 2!

We're sitting at a wonderful 40 orders so far, and there are some awesome giveaways @ 50 orders. I hope someone wins a SA hyperfuse set =)

Thanks for looking!

I remember one of the old teaser renders showing an ortho layout with a full 1u grid, but the image above suggests the plate isn't compatible for that. Can you confirm if this is the case?

The ortho plate will allow 100% 1U coverage. Prototype plate was created just a few MM's too narrow.

2 Days left to place an order. We've passed 50 orders - SA Hyperfuse will be given away to one lucky buyer.

There will also be no round two for this keyboard, what gets made now is all that will ever be made.

Unfortunately not of the mechmini 2 - however there are some all over google for mechmini 1 - which is identically the same layout.

I'm really enjoying the bottom out note generated by the combination of the top mount plate and nylon base.
