Damn, all of the Asia and US boards have been sold. Good thing im in EU. Not getting in on this would`ve broken my heart.


Us and Asia sold out very quickly (2 mins for all 100 in USA)

EU was expected to take a little longer and did as you couldnít complete checkout unless you had an EU address. If that had been open I suspect they would have sold just as fast as US

Really glad we (EU) had our own stock that was basically untouchable for outsiders. It's always so hard for FCFS GBs with a single source when you have to compete with the huge keeb community in the US. Would be great if this is something we will see more often in the future. And not for EU only, just region locked stocks at regional vendors in general.

Only with custom PCB and custom plate. Neither the PCB nor the plates (ISO, ANSI).

But why don't you use mod_tap?

right Shift: RSFT_T(KC_UP)
right Win: RGUI_T(KC_LEFT)
right Menu/Fn: LT(1, KC_DOWN)
right Ctrl: RCTL_T(KC_RGHT)

Pressing right Shift/Win/Fn/Ctrl alone will act as pressing up/left/down/right arrow, pressing right Shift/Win/Fn/Ctrl with another key will act as Shift/Win/Fn/Ctrl modifier.

Will the vendors reach out and ask about color and layout? There was no option while ordering. (mykeyboad n my case)

MyKeyboard: there is a form on the product page.

CannonKeys: Upas sent an email.

That's a good workaround tho, but some time I just need to press left/right for long. emm like while watching video?
thx for ur suggestion anyway

Press right Ctrl, release right Ctrl (the keyboard will send a single Right keydown event), press right Ctrl immediately again and keep it down, and your keyboard will send Right keydown events continuously until you release the key.

For those interested here is the build stream of the J-02 Production Sample, this is the first board off the production line with some QoL improvements to the original prototyped design.

ChangeLog as follows:

  • Moved to self adhesive gaskets - significantly simpler, easier and more robust to install
  • Alignment tabs added to the base case and brass mid layer to make alignment significantly easier
  • Brass mid layer now has 4 screw points to the top layer, to ensure no bowing of the board along the front and rear edges where the gasket is under pressure
  • Revised PCB from Upas
  • Pen rail has changed from magnet mount to screw mount - this is due to a couple of reasons, 1) risk of damage in transport (a prototype with mag mount pen rail shipped locally had the pen rail drop out of the board scuffing the brass due to taking a significant hit in transit, 2) the magnet manufacturer has gone out of business,
  • An example of the hard case was displayed (similar to those shipped with the TMO50v2 and Iron165SE from Cannon Keys

Awesome design Jae, the plate pressing cleanly into those gaskets looks so so satisfying. Sounds excellent too  :thumb:
