Hey guys, OKAY, it's really hard but I have to inform you about another little delay of about two weeks. please read for yourself:

(Attachment Link)

for all who don't understand german, I asked last week if I can plan picking up the parts. the answer is basically that the parts are not finished at beadblasting and expected to be back around the 9th (yesterday) and will then be brought to anodizing which "normally takes around eight days". This would mean next week but that week is easter holiday so I would expect more like the week after that.

we are really close now, I CAN FEEL IT!

as reparation I want to raffle out two more cases. That would be three cases in total because one was already said to be raffled out but hasen't been jet. will apply to only the first 150 orders, all later are quite recent and haven't had to wait that long in comparison. will do the raffle once I have the cases.

bear with me guys!

oh damn, I had never expected it would drag out that long that I would feel the need to post screenshots of my communication.

Thanks for keeping us posted with the updates Chris, two weeks is no biggie at all.

Glad everything is moving along, very excited!

Thanks for the update.

I think the TEX ADA keycaps would look exceptional with this case.

Updates and transparency in communication have been top notch in this GB, so the delays haven't felt anywhere near as bad as some other GBs I've been part of where you kind of just cross your fingers and hope it shows up within a year of the estimated/promised delivery date :) Thanks again for all the work, looking forward to the finished products!

BTW for 65% buyers should check out this small GB for a 65% PCB  :thumb:

https://maartenwut.com/product/ta-65/

thanks for the hint! just ordered it.
supports my favorite bottom row for 65%:
1.5 / 1 / 1.5 / 6 / 1.5 / 1.5 / 1 / 1 / 1

btw, let me point out that the SKB65 plate does support this layout as well, although at the time I made it, there was no 65% pcb that supported it. I did it anyway in hope a pcb would come along which would as well. nice it happened.

Kinda off-topic but is anyone planning on doing a hotswap build for the SKB75? I'm trying to decide on a PCB cause I know not all of them are compatible with holtites. The only thing I'd really want is south-facing LED's so there's no interference with cherry profile keycaps.

I'm not a fan of hotswap with a plate-mounted setup in theory, since the switch pins' friction will be the only thing (collectively) holding the PCB in place with no mechanical fasteners.

I think this got discussed a while back in this thread, but not sure if anyone had direct experience with plate-mount hot-swap. The mechanical clips on the switches only attach to the plate, so security of the PCB staying in place (and issues like getting misaligned with movement, pulling from USB cable, stabilizers coming out of place) are all resting on how tight the holtites are, or in the case of Kailh hotswaps how strong the springs are in the sockets.

Only workaround I would think of (if using holtites like mentioned) is direct soldering a few strategically placed switches at corners/edges of the PCB where you want the flex to be minimal to "anchor" the PCB in place relative to the plate, and then hotswap the rest of the board.

Yeah, holtites  kinda seems like a bad idea here. However I've had several boards with kailh sockets + 5 pins switches and it works really well.

His original question was about the SKB75 as hotswap, and to the best of my knowledge, no existing kailh hotswap 75% PCBs exist at the moment. He'd be limited to the holtite option only, which I've always heard inconsistent things about, at best, and that's not even in the context of securely connecting and retaining a PCB in a plate-mount setup.

I'm planning to build a hotswap SKB75, and I think Mill Max probably fit most of the switch pinholes on the KBD75 PCB.

For sure soldered on switches are the most solid building method. However, when a build is plate-mounted, especially with a case with top-mount or a sandwich-mount construction, I do not see super big cons of having a hotswappable PCB as the PCB itself is not anchored and the switches (for the alphanumeric keys) are held unusually tightly by the plate. The real cons will be at the mod-keys when the plate is designed to fit quite a few mod layout options and are not offering support to the mod switches.
Wishlist: 1) hotswap boards for MX and for Alps; 2) Alps64; 3) Universal Teensy convertor; 3) Quack & Split Planck; 4) Solid cases like TX

Hmm yeah I see where you're coming from, most hotswap builds I've seen are tray-mount, I'll definitely have to think about it. I'll be getting 2 cases so I think I'll do a regular build for one and maybe try and do this hotswap as a little experiment on the side. I appreciate the help Zuology, thanks man

Yeah that's what I was thinking too, the mod-keys are what worries me most. What we could also do is, custom order a single-layout plate and I feel like that'll be a lot better, in terms of support. I think Plastik offered to send the plate CAD files so it's definitely possible.

If anyone ordered a Boardwalk plate and wants hotswap, let me know.  I've put Mill Max in about a dozen Boardwalks now and have about 30 of them on hand that I can modify if you want one.  Full job takes 190 sockets (lots of options) and about an hour and a half to knock out.  I'd only charge cost of 21 cents per socket plus 30 bucks for my time if anyone is interested.  I'll also have a few extra SKB60 in Boardwalk and XD75RE configurations if anyone missed out and wants one.

Plate CAD files would be super useful. I'm particularly interested in designing my own custom Boardwalk plate, since the boardwalk plate options basically have a super wide socket for all the different spacebar configurations.

Looking forward to this!

Assuming the latest timeline works out I am gonna do some keeb building on my short and late winterholiday. I already have the kbdfans 75 programmed to my liking and pulse sa is also lined up for the skb75. Switches will be box navy.

I would love an update on at what stage the production is now? Are we at shipping when easter holiday is over?  Will it be late april or early may?

These keyboards look fantastic and op showed real commitment and genius. Too bad I discovered this hobby too late.

Hey PlastikSchnittstelle, I've ordered a 60% hhkb layout but would like a standard 60%. Would I be able to get a swap?

I really have to get that Alps plate going now :D
Would you be able to share with me the plate file? I would love to make an alps build!

are there any extras  :D I filled out the google form but I'm assuming you will deal with those after the GB has shipped.

I think you're a few months too late. Also, please be weary of making alps plates on this board - the plate is much thicker than 1.2 mm, so getting stabilizer clips held in is going to be an issue. Also, alps PCBs for standard layouts other than 60% are few and far between right now.
