GMK "B" Key Legend
« on: Fri, 22 June 2018, 21:44:59 »
I just received GMK Dark Solarized, and the legend on the B key is every so slightly crooked. Is GMK's mold screwed up? Is this a common issue with GMK sets?

Some of the number keys' legends also look a little wonky.

check the T key as well

this has been an issue with GMK for a while

I doubt it's fake. I got it directly from Keyclack through the GB.

check the T key as well

I think the T key is also slightly crooked, but it's harder to tell. Z also appears to be crooked.

Is this something that affects entire runs of a keyset, or is it just a per person occurrence, or is every GMK set like this? This is my first GMK set, hence my ignorance. It seems weird if not all sets are affected unless they have multiple sets of molds. 

I know it's nitpicky.

It might just be inconsistencies with the mold there is issues like that on a lot of gmk sets

my oco classic beige w/ blue set from 2013 had the same issues

that's just how it is with GMK

my suspicion is that they mold in 4s, and one of the 4 plates is slightly crooked

curious to see if this holds up on OG sets

more research needed

I have an 'OG' set on a keyboard with a 2003 datecode and it appears that the B and T is ever so slightly crooked.. I doubt I'd notice if someone didn't point it out. But I do perceive it slightly..  with both rotated a tiny bit clockwise.

This is not seen from a GMK set from within the past year.

My GMK soware has it, and I've seen it on nautilus sets.

it's not on every set, i think 1 out of every 3-4 has at least one of the defects
