Anyone interested in a full board of these #Blancks?
« on: Sat, 14 July 2018, 21:04:07 »
We have been working on milled Aluminum caps for a while now. While testing our stems we ended up with these blanks. Thought the would look good as a full set with tight tolerances. They are pretty beefy at the moment so might bring them down to about 12mm.
Just wondering what you guys think.

Probably not. They look terribly uncomfortable to type on.

Cheers. Was going for more form over function with these.

It would certainly look interesting. Especially in a Planck. Do you have enough of them to at least civet a decent portion? For keyboard science?

Just can't see myself using them =/

I would love to have them on a board as a display piece. I would assume the cost would  keep me from actually buying a whole set unfortunately.

Is there any way to make the alphas concave with the way you're cutting them?

We are working on some textured full sets that will be a traditional DSA/OEM profile. These were a happy accident that would be a bit cheaper for full sets because only one side needs to be machined on one side.

I would kind of like to try them, if you're seeking testers. I have experience with several different profiles, and type around 100 wpm.

How much would a full set of blanks for an 87 key "TKL" keyboard cost?

What's the weight difference between these and, say, a dsa keycap?
