Does anyone want to take my spot in this GB? I ordered 2 dark grey kits.

Can the order be split? I'd take one but not both.

Forgot to ask earlier (doesn't matter now) but does the plate support switch top removal?
Hey buddy! It does support switch top removal :)

Not sure, I'll email him and see how I can sell the spots separately.

If it helps, I'm willing to pick it up in-person as I think gas money from Edmonton to Calgary would be cheaper than Canada Post!

But seriously, I'm Canadian & am more than willing to work out something if I gotta pay the difference between a combined two-board order to wherever you are & a one-board order to me & a one-board to you or wherever else.

Ah ok, that would prolly make it easier since I only paid for one shipment. I'll lyk after I hear back from Dave.

So it seems like he wants me to collect payment from the buyers and forward your name, mailing address, etc to him. It seems kind of weird to do it like that, instead of refunding me and charging you separately for it. I'm gonna try to clarify if that's what he wants me to do, but I would prefer you pay him instead lol.

You can pm me your info and I can forward it to him if you want, or just pm me and I'll give you his email so you can talk to him directly as well. He hasn't gotten back to me about being able to pick it up though.

Yea I'm guessing it's due to the PayPal refund fee he'll have to eat if he refunds me. I'll try to get him to refund me though and send you an invoice instead, as I'd rather wash my hands of this completely lol. Will keep you updated.

I'm guessing he wants a minimum of fuss & muss since he's stepping away from the business for an unspecified period for unspecified reasons. Not sure if I want a keyboard from a closed-up shop with only discord for support, but keep me in the loop nonetheless.

Any updates on if the payment went thought on this? I mean don't get me wrong JMD seems like a outstanding guy but his last updates.. has left me a bit nervous about the entire transaction.

Quote
As of 4/10/2018

Espectro: Payment Submitted - waiting for bank wire to clear, once cleared production starts. This is taking a little longer than I wanted.

SA BTS: Payment Submitted - Production to begin Q4 2018. We got pushed back on our production, so that they could accommodate more popular sets.

I am stepping away from the business for an undetermined amount of time. If you require help. support, etc please check the discord. There will be people there who can assist in my absence.

If you have an issue with your order(s) leave an email, they will be read on every Monday. (Once a week).

Thank You.

I sent him another email, but still haven't received a response. It looks like I'm just going to have to wait to receive the units and then sell them, but will update if he responds.

I want to explain my break from the business, but I also do not wish to air laundry over the internet.

However here are the updates.

1) After the group buy ended, and all payments were collected and submitted the factory raised the cost of production. This was a time set back.

I added the additional thousands that they wanted, but before that i also needed a week to think things over. It was either go out of pocket to see the project through, or refund everyone - start over, or scrap it completely. Instead of disappointing you all, I opted to eat the bullet.

2) I submitted payment March 28th. My bank decided they wanted every type of information about me, and the bank draft beneficiary. I was preparing to provide dna samples and first born children, it was rather ridiculous.

Payment was received on april 19th by the factory.

3) Production started April 20th. 20 to 30 days for completion. We're currently looking at around 3 more weeks before they start shipping to me.

4) Some people wanted refunds, however with the added loss of thousands of dollars and no profit gained from this project from the factory raising it's prices I am opting to not offer this for people. If you wish to sell your spot, send an email, we will sort it out. This week things are looking to clear up, no more dr and vet visits and I will be able to get back to my excellent communications with you all.

5) There will be 24 extra keyboards for sale after all customer orders are built and shipped. $350 each.  A giant box of Zeal switches are in my posession as well.

6) Once I have something more to update you all with I will do so, thank you for understanding. Thank you for being patient. I hope everything is well for each and every one of you.

That's some serious bs you went thought JMD I am sorry got a little worried wish I would have known. I always figured the prices where locked in once the prototype was done. To know that a company can just raise the prices on ya like that out of the blue is seriously bs. I hope since you don't want to say out in public. That you would let other group buy runners know what happened. That way they can avoid that manufacture! I hope your business comes back online and better then ever soon! I know my confidence has been seriously restored. This will be my second group buy. I noticed suddenly Candykey's, Zfrontier, The Key Company and A few others just suddenly just went quiet.. put messages up saying they where going to be stepping away.. Its been sorta worrying. I wondering now if they hit situations like you hit. Suddenly you got manufactures increasing a price after the fact.

Check with bizzy11. I was going to buy one of his slots, but due to the inordinate amount of time it's taken to coordinate the swap-over thanks to JMD's completely understandable limited engagement with the project due to personal issues I've gotten myself a Melody96 spot that opened up instead.

I was an email away. I think I recall suggesting at one point for interested parties to email me to arrange payment and transfer ownership.

I emailed bizzy11 and told him as well, the interested parties just have to get ahold of me, so that I can take their payments for the board. And at that point, I would offer him a refund.

I also offered to do this as a favor to you guys as well, as usually it is up to you guys to orchestrate this on your own accord and have the money exchange your own hands, instead of coming in and being refunded on my end.

I sent you a PM here asking a question & identifying myself as one of the people looking to buy one of bizzy11's slots & got no response.

On the other hand, I left a comment regarding extras in a months-old reddit thread on the Melody96 & when one came up the vendor contacted me & the entire transaction was concluded through a half-dozen emails inside half an hour.

I'm sure you'll blame me for not contacting you through the appropriate channels (again) so you could do me the favour of selling me your product, but it's entirely academic at this point since I've secured what I feel to be a superior solution elsewhere.

You go ahead and do whatever makes you happy, while my customers who were present during the time of the group buy, and wanted to support an amazing 96 will enjoy theirs.

At the end of the day it's your money, and not mine - and I have been more than accommodating. Afterall, it's not my responsibility to make sure you can buy someone elses order - it's yours. I was just trying to be nice and offer assistance.

Wow why don't you just come off as spoiled and entitled a bit. I mean don't get me wrong I understand being mad at a vendor if you can't get something but this is just to far. First off it was a GROUP BUY.. what that means is that it was a group of people going in to buy a product together. Typically when those happen there might be some extra's at the end but there limited. There also a limited time for you to get into the group buy.

Once its over! no one is going to feel any sympathy if you missed it. I mean sure people might post there sorry but genuinely most don't care. They only post such things to raise there karama points on the forum to look like a nice person! Which most are genuinely nice people  :thumb:. Just its like Amazon service rep saying there sorry you had a issue. They really don't give 2 flips about your issue. They are only dealing with you for a paycheck.

Second off Superior solution that is kinda comical, cause I mean correct me if i am wrong but the other board your talking about isn't out of production yet? How do you know if its superior or inferior? I mean for the most you know the entire order could be in shambles like the recent Southpaw buy! Which you gotta feel bad for that runner! I mean dang.

So that just comes off as speculation by someone not getting there way.

I also wanted to point out you make it sound like JMD is making a profit which.. if you read the thread you know is not even close to the case. JMD was pretty transparent about some of the issues he faced. including having to sink thousands of dollars from his own pocket into the product to get it produced. I am sure after the units ship he will have some left overs. That he will most likely sell on his site. Point is he not making any profit he just trying to recoup some of the money he spent at this point.

So next time try to be a bit more understanding otherwise go to Amazon one of there customer care reps sure would just dolt all over you.

One other point noticed 90% of groupbuy's WILL NOT do slot transfers! .. there are the rare ones that will but most refuse.

Heya, I'm expecting this to happen.

Next weekend (around the 20th of may) the order to ship from the factory, to my QC agent.

QC agent will take 2 to 3 days to pack/assemble/qc my order. And then it ships out to me.

I do expect to start shipping these to everyone before the end of the month - however - please keep in mind, this timeline could stray off course.

As far as your switches and stuff go - I know what's going in mine, Zealios :)

Question for ya the Zealios are the 78g switches like MX Clears? Cause I thought about taking the plunge into Zealios for this! Why scrimp on the finer details of the board. I also thought about silence switches

They have a slightly crisper tactility and even without lube are not as scratchy.  In terms of weight though 67g might be more similar to ergo in feel.  All the weights feel decently good though

Hey all,

My order number isn't showing up on the orders google sheet. And I can't seem to be able to get in contact with anyone at mechkeys. Any idea how to talk to someone? Emailed them using their website emailer about a week ago (since I know they only read emails on monday per their website) and got no response.

Any ideas?

I did some searching but didn't find it, is the Espectro the same length as other 96 keyboards (Redscarf for example)? I want to get a wrist rest that is the proper length

I spoke with JMD earlier on this matter, the width of the board he gave me is exactly 15"

An update in general on the GB would be cool since the last one was 25 days ago and it said there was 7 days or less left on production.

Updates will always be on the first post and in the title.

Cases are still under production. I have nothing to update as of today. Let's hope the factory cooperates on monday and gives up some good news.

Hello everyone! Im Dave from mechkeys.ca and i present to you our newest in-house project, Espectro.

UPDATES

June 4th Update

My factory producing Espectro was met with some troubles with the Chinese gov't regarding pollution control. The shared space that they were using was violating their new pollution laws, and they had to relocate - thus affecting every project inside of said space. Espectro has been delayed a couple weeks, and my new production end date I've been told is one half month from today.

Greatly greatly sorry for this - I know everyone is itching to get their boards, unfortunately there is nothing I can do with this - it's completely out of my hands and my control and I'm just along for the ride at this point alongside all of you. I will update when I have more news.

The PCB's, plates, and poly carb bases are all 100% completed, we're just waiting for the rest of the cases to wrap up - and then anodizing.

Thanks

That's unfortunate. One and a half months or just half a month?

One half month would be approx. two weeks. In China, they do not divide their month by days/weeks but by pieces (half month).

Just wanted to make sure it was one half month and not a typo for one and a half months
