Saw a lamp that looked familiar.

Speaking of lamps and all things rose gold: I've been dreaming of rose-gold toned (non-RGB) LED color for years now.  There's basically nothing on the market which provides that color temperature.  Would be a most excellent complement for this set or in general.

I've had my doubts, but the pace has kept up!! With vendor support, it's basically there already :))

I hope I can join and get my **** together before it ends.

Iím doing everything I can to make it hit. Iím planning on purchasing a good amount of the extras so that we can hit MOQ. Obviously I canít buy 150 sets myself, but I also am working on some other ideas to get this going.

If I get any updates, Iíll let you all know right away.

OMG, I love the LED color, how did you tint it?

I considered the peachy pink tint for a while and decided to experiment with neutral and warm white LEDs + translucent spray paint.  I used to spray paint random stuff a lot and still have Duplicolor Metalcast cans in red and blue.  The best result ended up being warm white LED with a veil of blue and then red over it (I use a little LED tester to check results).  I then stuck a keyboard’s worth of LEDs into a foam roll (need to make sure to cover the metal legs) and sprayed the LEDs with Duplicolor Adhesion promoter transparent primer.  After a couple of minutes I followed with an even mist of Metalcast Blue and the Metalscast Red.  The LEDs are seated inside Kailh BOX (Hako True, appropriately pink), thus they are protected from accidental scratches of the painted coat.

There is Metalcast Purple, which I don’t have—it might be an easier shortcut to achieve the same effect.  I can’t confirm, since I haven’t tested it.  I used more red than blue.  It’s been a long day of modding and slow assembly, and I plan to take more detailed photos tomorrow.

this is so cool!  You have the exact setup I do - m65a, champagne,  hako trues, (but no LEDs cause I'm not handy).  Looks like I made a good color choice.

So nice.  If only I could deal with the lack of arrow keys, Iíd be planning to get that exact combination (not that my wallet is not thanking me).  Too used to dedicated arrow keys for photo editing.  ...Although Iíve been thinking of a custom key-mapped mini keypad for that purpose instead.

Haha! I'm basically locking my wallet for any more keyboards for a while. It doesn't help having more than one (or even two) hobbies to spend money on. And I actually feel bad when I have things sitting unused.  With that said I do enjoy looking at other people's pretty pictures of nice keyboards and accessories.

I do have a good news regarding the extras! I still need to talk to some of the proxies about the details, but the MOQ has been lowered to 100!

At this point, it is almost safe to say that both kits have hit MOQ. :)

I hope to have fully updated numbers by Monday.

i'm in on this GB (with extras, ramas, and desk pads).  how difficult/expensive would it be to get a custom colored split aluminum case?  i haven't seen any cases like that so i'm guessing it's prohibitive.

could always buy a VE.A or something and have it reanodized/powdercoated

but it's not cheap

So from the looks of it, we have basically hit MOQ!

Updated numbers

My M65-a and I are ready (complete with DIY "rose gold" LEDs)

Show Image


OMG, I love the LED color, how did you tint it?

I considered the peachy pink tint for a while and decided to experiment with neutral and warm white LEDs + translucent spray paint.  I used to spray paint random stuff a lot and still have Duplicolor Metalcast cans in red and blue.  The best result ended up being warm white LED with a veil of blue and then red over it (I use a little LED tester to check results).  I then stuck a keyboardís worth of LEDs into a foam roll (need to make sure to cover the metal legs) and sprayed the LEDs with Duplicolor Adhesion promoter transparent primer.  After a couple of minutes I followed with an even mist of Metalcast Blue and the Metalscast Red.  The LEDs are seated inside Kailh BOX (Hako True, appropriately pink), thus they are protected from accidental scratches of the painted coat.

There is Metalcast Purple, which I donít haveóit might be an easier shortcut to achieve the same effect.  I canít confirm, since I havenít tested it.  I used more red than blue.  Itís been a long day of modding and slow assembly, and I plan to take more detailed photos tomorrow.

Holy-...man...I'm speechless because that looks absolutely amazing!

Can I have the confirmation that the extra kit has met the MOQ before it's too late?
