Senter, I notice that there isn't an option for an WK Alps kit. If I ordered the Winkey MX kit + extra Alps plate, would that offer WK Alps support?

The PCB was designed to support ALPS + WKL only. If you have some nice WK ALPS caps, I would suggest you to drill holes on the PCB and do the wiring. It requires some skills but it's feasible. I did it once. I can help you to change the case layout to WK if you want to do it. I can't guarantee it will work tho.

I can confirm the TIME pcb is actually very well put together for manual drilling.

Is it possible to order the weight a different color from the plate?

I would love a white one, black plate, gold (yellow) weight.

see:
Will the brass have some kind of coating to protect it from getting a patina?


And is it possible to get a different color plate and insert color?

no coating and not possible

you could, however, get a separate aluminum or brass plate, or get a brass weight.

Can compare the electrocoated white case vs. the plate/insert on the yellow case, since that's MAO white.

same level as anodizing. E-coating is widely used on vehicles and has been proved durable.

no, since the plate won't be that noticeable after you put the caps on.

Just noticed that after you pointed it out, looks like something similar to the tkl no. 1 except that it is not also part of the plate or an outside accent to the board.

Not exactly the same color but close.

The blasting media used on Leaf will be finer to achieve a smoother finish. The finish also affects the color.

Any chance you could make a custom silver-colored Leaf? I'd be willing to pay a lot extra.

Also, will the WKL Alps plate support traditional alps stabilizers or only cherry?

haven't found a GMK set to match the case color but there's a photo if you're only concerned about the depth caps can sit
