78g Zeals or Box Royals. Leaning to the latter even though I bought the Zeals specifically for this board.

Vintage Blacks. Possibly Linear Grey for spacebar. Depending on what layout I choose in the end, MX Lock Switch for Caps Lock.

That's a pretty significant type gap between the two

I'm currently breaking in some 67g MX Zilent Blacks so they will be broken in and ready for lube when the board arrives  :)

I've been on a box white trip, but am afraid to put clickies in this board. With it being hollow, I think I'd be better off with some tactiles. I have some zealios left somewhere, but wouldn't mind some tinkering with switches.

I've been on a clicky kick lately, but tried some lubed  Tealios recently and they were ****ing amazing! Thinking about doing that, or lubed vintage MX Blacks.

My goto for high price boards is always linear. It's what I like, and what I type on daily.

I'm thinking I might go either silent blacks, or tealios. I built a 30% with the first run of tealios, and I really wish I would have bought more. I love them. (I'm actually typing on it right now haha, trying to get my wpm up.)

Silly question, but I'm dying to know:  what is the keycap set on the board in the third picture?  Not the GMK looking one, the one that looks like an SA profile, and looks like a combo of teal and dark navy?  Thanks!

I have Box blacks in my m65a. But I miss some tactility.

Btw. how is the production coming along? It is a month before estimated ship date, I'd rather like to know if there are any delays or if everything is working according to the plan rather now than in mid-May.

Hi guys, sorry for not updating since I was so busy this period of time.

CNC is close to 60% done, and Yock is ready to head to the factory to check them.

Then he will supervise anodizing process himself.

I will post some photos when he arrives to the factory. :D

I can't tell what kind of room it's in. If you look at the floor, it kinda looks like the roof of a building. What's the scaley-looking metal piece on the floor? I'm guessing it's just housing for the entire machine, but .. :confused:

My guess would be it's angled like that to drain off the liquid they are using.

I think you're overestimating the scale of that picture. That's an enclosure for the CNC.
