Anyone know where I can get a batter looking USB C cable that work with Norbaforce. So far I try 2 other USB C cable none of them work.

I'm using this cheap USB-C cable from Ikea. It's been working flawlessly.


Ooh. That's a really nice pairing of cable and finish!

Any extras or leftovers???

I currently have a batch being coated right now, supposedly complete next week (but factory timeline promises are almost invariably wrong/lies). Once they're boxed and assembled, I put them into stock and send out an email notification on my list. There aren't very many, unfortunately, though. =\

Will these extras be also available via mykeyboard.eu or only via your shop?
Any news on those extras?

Only my shop this time around. Powder coating is now complete on those extras, but I decided to order new back-plates because I wasn't happy with the ones I had left (anodizing defects). Those will arrive after Lunar New Year celebrations are complete in China, so unfortunately we're probably looking at late Feb or March.

Any update on the level of interest in the upgraded steel Norbaforce backplates? Very interested in those :)

33 survey responses so far. I'll likely order a batch of roughly that number as soon as my preferred machine shop for steel parts comes back online after Lunar New Year celebrations this month. I'll just have these in limited numbers in my shop at some point when they're done/ready. I'm trying to avoid group buys going forward just to make life a bit less stressful for me. :)

Awesome.

Just built my royal wrinkle black Norbaforce incidentally. Hypersphered, lubed, dome-swapped with BKE Redux Extremes. It's lovely!

The survey didn't ask how many you wanted.

Considering the costs and difficulties involved, I don't know if this would be run again. But if it was, I really hope the retro refrigerator color is included. It looks gorgeous.

Not sure if anyone notice but there were some Norbaforces in Havard Square colour last night. And now they're all gone  :p :p :p
