Do you have a picture of the clear PC with aluminum plate & weight/leaf?
I'm afraid I can't afford the brass that I want so much, but I might be able to get the standard kit.

No.
There are photos for PC case with brass plate/weight. The board will look about the same with alu plate/weight.
Brass plate and weight are more for the weight, not the look.

    I meant to ask if the split space is possible if I opt for the standard layout plate and non-hotswap version of the PCB offered in this GB.[/list]

    Universal PCB + Universal plate is for the split spacebar layout.

    What LEDs would you recommend for this board?

    I recommend no LEDs for switches.
    If you order a clear PC case, I'd recommend RGB LED strips for underglow.

    How can we check what we ordered?

    I want to order another and want to make sure I don’t get the same config :x

    The brief order info will be included in the invoice. You can also PM me for details.

    Hi Senter,

    I sent a PM to change my order but i got an invoice for the old order, not the new one. :)

    Hi dantambok. I didn't receive your PM. I just asked you through PM.

    BTW, for everyone, I've replied all the PMs that requested for changes. Please PM me if you asked and didn't get a reply.

    after the group buy ends, will there be extra pcbs? i might want to pick up one afterwards, but right now i cant justify the extra cost.

    Yes.
    Even after extra PCBs are all be taken, they can be made for every 10 PCBs minimum in one batch.
    Same for all Fox Lab board PCBs.

    What do I have to order to build the HHKB in the first photo?  I use a HHKB2 and this looks like an awesome board to be it's companion.

    Clear PC Case (HHKB layout)
    PVD Brass Plate (Universal layout)
    Universal PCB
    PVD Brass Weight
    (+ GMK Serika keyset from somewhere else!)

    Note that if you currently use a HHKB you will be used to split backspace, which the board in that photo lacks. You can still achieve this with the universal PCB and plate, but you could substitute the PCB and/or the plate for their HHKB-specific counterparts. The HHKB PCB is hotswap let, and the HHKB plate would mean the plate wouldn't have a hole where the corner blockers are.

    Thanks for you help. I ordered the Clear PC case, brass hhkb plate and brass weight, HHKB PCB (hot swappable). 

    Am I correct in thinking that as it's hot swappable no soldering will be required during assembly?

    I assume the yellow option is the same as for the leaf 80. If so, can someone elaborate on how vibrant the yellow actually is? it looks very gold-ish to me on the pictures and I would love that

    Yeah, you shouldn't have to solder switches in if it's hot swap.

    hi! bit new to the whole world of "custom and plates"

    I'm looking to order a "future" proof design which involves  compatibility with aftermarket pcbs.

    I'm leaning towards the WKL plate version of the board but will aftermarkets be fine with it, or should I just go with the MX-universal plate for aftermarket pcbs :O

    Hey Senter, seeing a build stream tonight of a Leaf80 has me a little concerned. There were lots of switch alignment issues and even caps rubbing on the wkl blockers. The images of the Leaf60 proto looks like the seams around the caps are tight too. Is this something that has been addressed since the 80 group buy?

    my leaf 80 didn't have any of those issues at all, guy probably either just got super unlucky or maybe something happened during shipping? i wouldn't personally be concerned, i haven't heard anyone else complain about any of these things either

    I just watched the recording until finish. Seems like there were three issues when Nathan was building the board.

    1. Enter key is a little higher.
    2. Several alpha keys are not aligned.
    3. Left and right Shift keys are a little lower.

    For 1, the issue is gone after Nathan soldered the switch.
    For 2 and 3, I guess some keys were not pressed down completely. Pressing the key while soldering them should fix the problem. That was a custom plate but I didn't find any problems with the plate file.

    update: Saru confirmed what I said.

    Yes

    I also want to make sure this is true before I purchase. I would love to get the HHKB top version of the Leaf60 and have an Alps HHKB build!  My understanding is to order the HHKB top version, alps plate, and alps pcb and I would be all good. Apologies if this is obvious but I am a little confused.

    Your understanding is correct.

    Thank you for letting me know! One last question, I do not see split right shift or the split backspace as an option on the alps pcb and plate. Does this mean that you can have an Alps HHKB build for everything but the split right shift and split backspace or is there a way I am not seeing?

    Two questions,

    1. can I use the universal pcb and plate with the HHKB top?
    2. Could a “standard” 60% pcb and plate be fitted to the case? Asking mainly for the Boardwalk PCB

    PMed for a full PVD version, if spots are available. I understand orders can be changed prior to submitting the form, but can I submit a form for a non-PVD one, in the event that there are no spots available, so I don’t miss the GB?

    Thank you sir. I guess I will just have to get used to the split backspace as the clear PC casing is irresistable. And come to think of it, I already have Koyu on the way so I would have to get used to split backspace anyway.

    For what it’s worth, i just got a 60% w/ split backspace after using mostly 75% and TKL boards, the switch took about half an hour to get use to, and it feels so much more comfortable to use

    Is it possible to have more photos of black polycarb?

    Edit: Also, could you add an option for ordering extra weight?

    Here you go https://imgur.com/a/dzHCKBy

    You can write a note in the last question in the form. I thought no one wants extra weights.

    The potential of building a lightweight -- if that's your thing -- full-polycarbonate keyboard is very interesting. The side curves are beautiful and indeed leaf-like.

Does this mean that you can have an Alps HHKB build for everything but the split right shift and split backspace or is there a way I am not seeing? Thank you for answering all of our questions in a timely matter!

    ALPS plate and PCB only support what's showing in OP. The PCB should work for split BS and Rshift with a little drilling/wiring but the plate does not.

    I am sorry of this have been asked before, didn't find answers in the comments. But the renders show ISO support. Does it have ISO support? Really want to get in of it does :)

    Unfortunately, it does not.

    Definitely getting a PC and brass kit.

    Two questions,

    1. can I use the universal pcb and plate with the HHKB top?
    2. Could a “standard” 60% pcb and plate be fitted to the case? Asking mainly for the Boardwalk PCB

    1. Yes
    2. No

    Thanks for the response!  For 1, I would need to use the HHKB bottom row right? I wouldn’t be able to get a HHKB case with split spacebar support. Just want to confirm. Thank you!

    Sorry for keep asking questions. Should've asked with my previous reply but I got confused again while selecting options in the google form.
    The hotswap PCB is said to be for HHKB/WKL but the picture of the layout shows winkey on it. Does this mean that it can be used for regular layout as well?
    Since the combination I want is [clear PC housing + hotswap PCB + bronze PVD plate + plate holes not showing through the clear PC housing], I guess the only choice I have is to go with regular layout, so I do hope the regular layout is possible for hotswap PCB

    The only plate that does not have the winkey cutout is a special one senter added in either black or clear PC.

    Hotswap pcb has only a split backspace, so it is not regular layout.

    Thank you again sir. However, what I was asking was about was the case layout which I am supposed to choose between Regular layout, WKL layout or HHKB layout in the google form.
    I am curious if I choose Regluar Layout for the case, a hotswappable PCB and Bronze WKL plate, I will be able to build a board with a full bottom row so that there won't be any plate holes showing through the pc case.
