Almost all of the single orders are packed. I'll be working on the rest of the non-vendor/proxy orders in the next 2-3 days with a goal of getting them all to the post office by Friday. The vendor/proxy orders will be sent out by mid next week.

Looks like people will start receiving these today. I've redone my site and added a project page for the h87a, with default keymaps, links to .hex files, and other relevant info.

Just built a Keycult No. 1 with one of these PCBs tonight. I noticed that right shift is really sticky compared to the other stabilized keys. There's resistance on the way down and it doesn't spring back like normal. Is there something tricky about the stabilizers in that position? Maybe I gummed up them up with too much/thick lube. I'm using the clear Zeal stabs.

I think I know why.. The right shift and spacebar stabs are bi-directional (the stab wires can be in either north or south-facing direction) which makes the footprints slightly oblong. My best guess is the stab is loose in the mounts right now. You'd be able to fix this by loosening the stab screws slightly, pushing/pulling the stab in the wire/clip end's direction, and re-tightening the screws.

Thanks, I thought that was related. I loosened and retightened in the correct spot and it works great now. When I was building, I noticed the screws in that stab kept sliding towards the middle of the oblong slot once I tightened them down. The tension from being screwed down in the wrong place must have deformed the stab housings enough to squeeze on the sliders.

Thanks for putting this project together.

I've been meaning to add that to the project page on my site, check it out in the next few days.

To connect the caps lock LED, locate the jumper pads (three next to each other, would be either J1 or J2) and bridge the center pad to the pad with a dot next to it, or to the opposite pad to add it to the standard led backlight.

Note that I may have those pads backwards, I won't be able to check until tomorrow.

One more dumb question, will just a blob of solder work for this?

Yep! Should be okay. I'd recommend using a small bit of wire without insulation or a diode/LED leg, but they aren't necessary.

Hey, yeah! I printed out all of the labels once they were sold. Took me a couple days to get the packing in order, they'll be dropped off to USPS tomorrow.

Yusssss, that was my only real critique: it's not quite flexible enough for my taste to be used with a half-plate. Amazing quality though, very happy with mine.

Can you clarify what you mean by "thinner?" I'd really like to buy one of these to put in a nerd tkl case, but the usb connector needs to be on the bottom side of the pcb to fit. This is literally the only thing stopping me from ordering one right now.

Thinner meaning 1.2mm thick, vs the "normal" thickness of 1.6mm which most PCBs use. I have no plans to make a bottom-USB version publicly available atm, sorry to disappoint.

That's unfortunate. I've been trying to figure out a way to make a B.87 style build ever since winkeyless closed down :/
