Just checking in, February still the goal? Also an updated orders list was mentioned a few weeks back, would be great to let everyone verify their orders. :)

Yes, February is still the goal.
Here I attached the updated order list as pdf again.
If for some reason there are still some mistakes - no problem, there are still quite a few extras left from each version, so I can manage if I got something wrong.

Since there is not much for me to do now other then waiting, I'll keep it quiet for a while.

Also:
Some of you had asked me for a custom plate. I made quite a few already, some interesting ones, already three alps plates, for example. So if I haven't made this clear by now: If you want a custom plate, just pm me, let me know what you want and you'll get a DXF with your custom plate from me.

yep, I got you, you joined just very recently, so that's why I haven't moved your name to the spreadsheet that I made for public export. so don't worry, I got you, you paid your SKB75, all fine.

I've had this concept sitting around my head for a bit now, so I'm throwing it out there in case anyone else has thought of something similar. Given the way the plate is mounted in the case, how hard would be to use longer bolts, shorter spacers, washers, and o rings to sandwich the plate between them?

That's not hard at all. Being able to use some kind of dampeners like orings is part of the whole idea. Was already mentioned a while ago. here as well.

Good idea, haven't thought of that!

You can also find them on AliExpress when you search for "damper stand off". We would need size M3, correct? How long would they need to be?

exactly the ones from the secon picture would fit. yes all M3. length 7mm woul be optimal, but 6mm length is ok as well (caps would't sink in that deep but still deeper than usual).
here are two sources for europe/germany: source one, source two. those would require you to use shorter screws than the ones that I'll include (M3x12). you'd need M3x4 or M3x5 (source option).
generally you can find these and similar kind of dampeners when you google for RC and drone accessories. there dampeners (usually M3 as well) are used to secure the controller boards. o-rings are probably the cheapest option.

What switches does everyone plan to put in this? I'm thinking holy pandas or lubed vintage blacks...

I'm a linear guy, so probably some lubed filmed vintage blacks, or retooled blacks, or even some Gateron blacks or yellows or clears if I managed to get a hotswap PCB.

Holy Pandas, call me saying out of jealousy cuz I missed the MD, are mostly and mainly a curiosity thing anyway.
My tactile holy grail, that the Holy Pandas and the Halo True want to mimic is Topre, something I'm typing on right now. The next thing close to Topre is SKCM browns before everyone is talking and making their own Holy Pandas, Outemu/Zeal/Gsus/KBDfans - I hope the mechanical switch market in 2019 won't be this boring in Q234.

Healios for my SKB65. Figure it could go well with the stiff steel plate.

been thinking about what to put in this for a while now lol. was planning on putting in some lubed linear mod-h switches, but am now leaning towards mx zilents. but who knows, i've also got cream switches and red pandas/halo trues on the way  :eek:

The first plate and PCB will get some 100g silent MX Blacks, second plate and PCB will probably be 78g Zealios.

V2 zilents. I think the softer bottom out would work particularly well with the hard steel plate.

no problem, if you dig into this thread you'll find a post where I bought three common usb-c cables from amazon and tested them with the case in order to make sure there are no issues.

I may actually try some silented linear switches too!

Unsure. I have a bag of V1 Zilents but I may change my mind and try out some BOX switches or something.

you mean switch top removal?
no it doesn't, just standard cutouts.
I explained in the beginning why I prefer that.
make your switches perfect before you start building, or get a PCB witch hot-swap sockets.

that's what I assume. But I won't bother until mid february. If I don't have the parts by then or a more specific time, I'll call them and ask.

Hako Violets. I have some lubed with Tribosys 3204 in another board that feel pretty good, but I'm thinking a few layers of RO-59 might be worth the effort.
