Treasure TYPE-9 : Aluminum minimal 9 keys macropad
« on: Wed, 04 July 2018, 15:06:24 »
TREASURE TYPE-9




Hello to all,

Treasure Macropad Type-9 is an aluminum macropad with 9 programmable keys. Designed with the user in mind, this macropad is easy to build and program).
This product is the first of my new Hardware startup (Treasure). My goal is to make easy to use stripped down industrial design products.
Inspired by Scandinavian and Japanese aesthetics, design is bold and minimalist. The blend between rounded lines and sharp edges makes it stands out on your desk.

Hi Eric, what is the lead time from order confirmation to shipping? As I see that they are ready to ship but I have not gotten any tracking number or shipping notification since I completed my order on Tuesday...

Any chance of these being done in more colors in the future? They look so cool, I'd love one in white or purple!  :thumb:

Just put mine together, it's absolutely marvelous!! Love the design and the compactness, beautiful machining & anodizing, solid product all round. :thumb: Only thing I would change is to include shorter feet, the included ones are so tall!

Also, a 9x9 brass plate would be the cherry on top, and would help with mounting Kalih Box switches as they lack PCB mount stubs.

Sounds very familiar. I decided to use some retooled blacks for that very reason instead of box royals. Didnít use the included feet, might use 2 just for the back to create some kind of angle.

Hi, thanks for your feedback, you have a very nice layout.
Do you mind if I put your picture to my website ?
I may consider supplying lower bumper pads in the future.

That's not a problem, let me know if you'd like to use the original file (3878x3024). Glad my Pixel 2 XL can take some usable photos!

Swapped out the front feet with some lower profile ones, for a ~4 degree angle.

I received my kit much quicker then I expected and it was packaged very well.  I haven't decided on switches and caps yet.  A 9x9 Brass Plate for mounting Kaihls as previously suggested is a great idea.  I have some Outemu ices with dustproof click stems and heavy springs from Gaz I might use instead.  The black PCB was a very nice touch I wasn't expecting.  I'll post an update when I get around to adding the switches and deciding on a keyset.

I didn't have any LEDs onhand, but will probably add them later.  I have some SIPs to put in as well. Currently setup with Outemu HotSockets & Outemu Ice Housings, Dustproof Click Stems, 75g Springs.



I had some grey and white blanks and an orange cable to hold me over until I find something suiting of the body.
