Equalz One(TKL RGB kit)By C³(Made by EVE)
« on: Mon, 10 December 2018, 06:15:07 »
Hi Geekhackers, Long time no see.

Today, I want to present you with our lastest keyboard--------Equalz One

When we set up our RGB Pcb project, we been thinking one thing: What’s the best way to show those RGB leds? And of course, transparent material is one of the best ideas. But we also want to use aluminum body. This is how Equalz One is inspired.
Learned from Kmac2.0 we added another mode to assemble it. When we bring this ideas to EVE he helped us to perfect it by using removeable Positioning pillars. So now we have tray mount and plate mount. You can have 2 kinds of different type feeling. Also you can remove some of the positioning pillars to have different type fellings.
There’s a stable wood on top of the arrow keys,used for RGB leds. We add a blocker to cover it when you don’t want any light on top of it. And a small PC diffuser to show some back light of the PCB.
Enough talking let me show you some photo:




















I know you guys are tired of waiting for GB keyboards.Sometimes you waited for a whole year for one keyboard. This time we pre-made this for you. However there will be a limit to this. We made 60 of one and our plan is to sell 30 on GH and 30 in China. But some didn’t pass QC and now we just have 20 to sell on GH. Here’s list:
White;10
Blue:   8
Purple:  2

Flaws:
Since this is pre-made we did found one flaw of this. There’s some deviation of the positioning pillars. It caused by CNC. We fix this problem by drilling the positioning hole bigger on the PCB. Here’s how it looks. If you really care about this, please don’t buy it.



All the things you need to know about this board:
1,Made by EVE
2,Alu 6063 with anode colors(light blue,pink,purple) White is anode electrophoresis
3,Fully programmable PCB with pre-soldered RGB smd(include 16 on the back). Type-C port
4,Stable Wood and Alu blocker(random color for the wood and blocker, wood may not be perfect)
5,Two assemble mode(plate mount and tray mount)
6,PC plate.
7,6 degree slope

Color Options:

White upper case with red bottom
Light Blue case with light gray bottom
Light purple case with Light Pink bottom

Price: $290+shipping+paypal fee(4.4%)
Shipping price: US/ Asian:40
              Canada/Europe:50

Timeline for this Sale:
Form open 12 Dec----invoice send on 13 Dec(You will have one day to pay for it if you don’t pay then it will move on to next one in the form)----Shipping start on 14 or 15 Dec

It's in the right forum, we moved it here from Group Buys as these keyboards are already premade, and this thread is basically a sale.

Are keyboards artisans now? The op literally calls it a GB.

Oh well.

Nice keyboard. Ruined by whatever that thing is on the right side above the arrow cluster. Otherwise I would have picked it up.

It's a pre-made fully custom product sold by its maker in collaboration with C³—Ears.  Yes, they are considered "artisan" items.

Took us sometimes to figure out the thing above the arrow keys. It's a stable wood to show some light and there's blocker to block it if you dont want it.

There's only 3 colors left to sell it here.It's all there.Since this is all made and packed already we not selling any extra PCB/plate. There's no need to buy another PCB. We have confident in our PCBs. And if you mess it up when soldering,i will sell you another PCB with good price.I have a bunch of them.

The spacing between the case and the keys seems uneven in some pictures. Is that just because those aren't finished builds (i.e. the keycaps are just resting on the plate)? Or is that an problem with the design?

Another couple of quick questions:
1. You said this has two mounting methods. Are these methods "tray mount" and "top mount w/ PC plate"? It looks as though the plate has holes for screwing into the case top, but it's hard to tell in the picture. Just curious since I've never used tray mount or PC plate before.

2. Do you know if this PCB is friendly to holtites installation?

Thanks for the quick buy. Looking forward to this.

1,Tray mount is without any plate,screw the PCB on those position pillars. Or you can use PC plate with top mount and screw into the case top(remove those position pillars). I recommend use tray mount with plate.

2, The PCB is not support kailh hotswaps. Others i havent tried. It's the best you just solder the switches on the PCB.

Thank you

I got mine today. Thanks for the fast shipping!

The finish looks pretty nice. The weight is similar to a TEX aluminum case: mid-light weight; it feels nice. It may be my ignorance on tray mount, but there seems to be a slight fitting issue in this configuration. It's only possible to put the top piece on when the PCB screws are loose because the top piece's bottom screw hole juts out enough that it can't slide past the PCB, but, once the top piece is on, the screws in the top of the PCB can't be accessed to tighten. I was planning on plate mounting, so that probably won't be an issue for me. The widened screw holes do not appear to affect tightness of the tray mount, which is good.

Just a tip for attaching the top and bottom pieces of the case: the short screws go on the north side of the case and the long screws go in the north side (towards bottom row).

Also, clarification on the stable wood blocker: the wood part has the logo carved into it. It's actually the metal square that slides up and down to block the light.

It will probably be a few weeks before I get to build mine, but I will power up the PCB and test it out later.

So far, I like it. Thanks for the fast and smooth buy, C3!

C³—Ears,

I have a problem with my PCB. When I activate a key on the left most column, the key below it is also activated. For example, if I press ESC, the tilde key is also pressed. If I press TAB, then CAPSLOCK is also pressed and so on. The only one that differs is left CTRL, it will also activate F12 when it is pressed. All other keys work correctly according to my testing.

I downloaded the LDN Config Tool from this thread (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=95713.0) and I tried to switch the keymapping of the effected keys, but it still happened (I mapped ESC to A and Tilde to B, but it still pressed B when I pressed ESC [mapped to A]).

I do not see any physical damage to the PCB. Do you know if this is a firmware problem?

I appreciate any guidance you can provide.

smells like a diode issue, you might want to try and reflow the ones on the left side and see if that does anything

Hi when you test it,use something isolation. Like use glove to cover your tweezers.
Our pcb is little bit different. You can't test it when electric going through your body.
If you soldered and have this problem please let me know.

I'm just about finished building mine.

A few takeaways...

First, the Equalz One is awesome--better than I expected. The anodizing is perfect as far as I can tell, and overall the design excellent. I bought the white and red option so I'm opting for SA Honeywell, which matches great.

There is an issue that wasn't pointed out by the OP: There aren't enough holes in the PC plate to allow you to tray-mount the PCB. As far as I can tell you have to either drill your own holes (not a big deal since it's plastic) or just stick with the plate-mount option, which is what I did.

I built mine with v2 Zilents and I have to say typing on a plate-mount PC plate is a new experience and incredibly satisfying. I've used aluminum plate mount keyboards, but not PC.

I'm just about finished building mine.

Yeah I am running into the same thing here. Kinda curious to include a plate thats not compatible with tray mounting the board lol.

I will probably just stick to plate mounting it as well
