sent back my skog brass weight and asked ALF to help me do polishing and surface passivation treatment, wow!!!So excited to see that:)
wish this case had a brass weight  :'(
pls wait for deluxe :)
Tempting..... When will that come out? Also does the case for this GB have a slot for a weight? Pictures it doesn't seem like it but i could be wrong

Recall its 1.4kg assembled

Sorry if this has been asked before. I assume other PCB's like the DZ60 will fit in the case with the DC60 plate? Looking at the cut out looks tight for usb type C.

Hello guys, I would like to share some keyboard science here. Not exactly a fair comparison, but you should get some ideas on how heavy the DC60 is compared with some popular keyboards out there. For what its worth, I took the weights for whitefox and orange75 with my own USPS scale, the DC60 weight is taken by a forum buddy who received his DC60 in the private alpha run.

DC60 assembled is 1501 grams
Whitefox assembled is 784 grams
Orange75, regular alu inserts (unfortunately I didn't have time to assemble yet) is 1391 grams

With its form factor and no brass weights, DC60 is absolutely heavy by any standards.

Paid! Super excited. This is the first custom board Im actually going to keep. Had an exent but sold it before building.

This bad boy is going on my white desk, with a white NZXT desktop, black oversized mat, and JTK WoB. Now I just have to figure out what switches to put in it!

Note that the Orange75 does not have switches, keycaps or stablizers installed. The assembled Orange75 will be heavier than 1.5kg.

For those of you asking about possible future GBs for DC60, I have checked with ALF:

R2 is likely not happening anytime soon. And if there is a need for DC60 after this GB, the prices will likely be increased to somewhere around 120 (regular)/180 (white).

Personally I don't like hotswap 60 PCB. 60% board is the size everyone can customize their preferred layout, while hotswap PCB means only fixed layout is supported. (Actually gk61&gk64 are available) But a PCB with holes supporting Kaihl hotswap socket is welcome.
