Check your order here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1j1eUR9rx7svR8_cJnshkiSyxFP4PBxJhWk4i1XVZqNQ/edit?usp=sharing

January 20th: Group buy opened; invoicing complete.
January 22nd: All paid.
January 25th: All orders confirmed.
January 28th: Order sent.
Unknown date: Please see note below.
July 5th: Anodizing samples received.
July 16th: Order placed.
Currently: Waiting to receive order.

Unknown date note: This was scheduled to be manufactured immediately after 268. I'm not sure of the reason, but 268 shipping to me was dragged out for months for unknown reasons from the middleman. I had to cut out middleman, and I've been working with the factory directly. When I was finally talking with the factory, I had improved the design a lot over the few months, so I wanted to confirm these changes with a new prototype. These were ordered, received, and I had some more work to do. That work was done, but I wanted to get anodizing samples as I offered the participants new colors. These were received July 5th, and production will commence within start by the 12th of July.

Yeah, sorry about the price. Low quantity means it'll be higher. I don't plan to do these small runs as a usual.

I split the case/plate price as standard as people do get multiple.

From IC: 'This is not X60 V2. That'll be ran in the future, so don't worry if you miss this one.'

And yes I believe he said V2 will be a larger run with some slight aesthetic differences if I'm not mistaken? I think it was around 50 but I could very well be pulling that out my ass.

Not this exact design.

V2 will feature:
  • Slimmer bezels (6/4mm) vs this (8/4mm)
  • Outer edges rounded vs this chamfer
  • More plate/color options
  • Probably 100 units vs 20
  • Different engraving design (maybe, I really like how this one turned out)

Looks good!

Will the PCB being offered be the USB-C QMK-compatible one mentioned in the IC and otherwise be similar to the 268 PCB?

Also, will the plate support a universal layout or will it be the HHKB style one shown in the renders?

Between having extra holes in the plate and my lack of care for 1.25u bottom row, this is the result :))

Seriously considering having that as the only bottom row on the PCB too. Clean PCBs are the best. Would love to have a single layout PCB + plate combo  :'(

Meh, I prefer a normal backspace for aesthetic reasons, but the rest of it I totally use an hhkb layout.

That I will agree with. Was one of the selling points on the LZ s x h. Having plates cut to my specific layout is naic

Yeah I'll do it for all layout options left. I suspect that split rshift/backspace will stay and lshift will go.

Is that confirmed that ISO is out of the question or will it be an option for the plate?

xondat,

2 questions if you have time :

1) will the brass plate be mirror finish only?  I really like the look of the brass plate from the previous run.

2) do you have any pics you could post of the dark grey and silver finishes next to each other? Or maybe of the silver next to a classic beige/9009 colorway?

  • Which brass plates are you referring to? I've only done brass for 268 and they're mirror (the same as this).
  • Dark gray with 9009 below. I don't have a silver case to compare, but there are many on Google etc.
