Hello Friends of Geekhack, I am Chouyu, I believe you have seen the IC of Fei Switch posted by oldcat. Here is the link for the IC:
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=97950.0

FEI switch is a switch Gateron made for me, it is a linear switch with the initial weight of 55g and bottom out weight of 62g. Gold plated springs are installed.
The price of each pcs of switch is 0.4 dollars.

Here are some pictures of the switch (milky top, green tea bottom and stem).






I ordered 20k switches for the GH GB with all the switches paid. I have already received the switches.

Join the GB:
Fill the GB Form 1 (with number of switches remaining), with your ID and country. Qty in the 200, 400, 600, and 1000, weight will be 0.5kg, 1kg, 1.5kg and 2.5kg. Please buy as group if possible so shipping cost is lower for each of you. After that, please fill form 2 with your individual information, and I will send invoice via PayPal.
Form 1 link:https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/15--WsgE0VbOnrdLbNKMCwIqX3h7wrQ0j56QKepvpNho/edit?usp=sharing
Form 2 link:https://goo.gl/forms/FDFtHCNvo2fMCM4u1

GB Timeline:
Jan 6 - Jan 15 or when it runs out of stock, FCFS. I will ship from China starting Jan 16.

Notes:
1.Please fill form 1 sequentially and do not delete or modify information other users added.
2. The shipping method I chose is based on speed and affordability, the shipping cost will be reflected in form 1.
3. There is a limited number of switches and I want everyone to try it out. And for sorting and shipping convenience, I only consider quantities of 200, 400, 600 or 1000.
4.The national shipping cost not shown in the table will be displayed in your PayPal bill.

Thank you for these switches!
If you're in SFBA, I just ordered a lot of 400 as a means of saving some locals on shipping costs. Contact me here or on discord if you're interested in making arrangement. Cheers!

Does Gateron provide a tolerance range on the spring weight? Maybe +/- 10g?

Dang, I was really excited to join this but I have no interest in buying at least 200 of them.

If someone in the Orange County area is picking up some extras, hit me up. I'm really only looking for 70-90.

I thought 200 switches was a lot but with 20k total switches ordered, thats still a lot of packages to ship. Plus its a limited run so I think its worth getting enough for a few builds.

I've already ordered my switches, but I noticed that the quantity is very low now, and some people ordered switches but didn't fill in a name... To be fair to others, how will those be dealt with?

I just noticed this and wanted to get in. If someone is willing to sell like a 60% worth of switches, hit me up please. I'm in Europe if that's of any use.

Hopefully a US vendor bought some to sell on their site! Either way that's awesome that you were able to sell all 20K in just 2 days! Congrats! And congrats to all the people who were able to get some! Guess I'll be sticking to Gat yellows and Gat Blacks for now!

I filled in form 1 while there were still plenty left but then forgot about form 2 until I checked back just now! Sorry, got confused :( Hope that's okay and I didn't get bumped off!

For real. I somehow missed that the group buy had even started until just now. Would be interested in a round 2 as well.

I wouldn't worry about a R2 just yet guys. With the 200 count minimum orders there will be plenty of people putting their extras up on mm once they get them.

I'll probably hold on to my extras for a while depending on how good they feel, but I would never sell switches for more than cost+packaging+shipping. Also, I'd never sell them on r/mm   :)  But fear ye not, I will sell them here when the time comes.

Im right there with you. For transparency, I bought in bulk and found some folks to split the lot with. We worked out a price of $36.52USD for 70 switches. That covers PayPal transaction fees and USPS flat rate small box two day priority shipping. Local cash exchange just $28.
