Gotta ask. I heard some mention about a numpad. Definitely would love a numpad that matches the keyboard. Any update on how that is going? I'm sure you're busy with the GB so it's totally cool if the answer is after the GB.

I've been asking the same. they said it would be 6 rows, but there would only be one button at the top.

then went on to say that the design had not been finalized.


I REALLY want a full 24 key numpad friend for this board. FULL 6 X 4 rows is what I need

I'd honestly be fine with a 5x4, but I'm guessing that would look small next to the board so 6x4 would work better?

But the Leaf60 is only 5 rows. How would a 5 row numpad look small?  I think 5 row is the way to go. That 6th row is always a challenge to fill with relevant caps.

I've gotten SUPER used to my 6th row on the numpad, I use it for esc, backspace, delete, and printscreen, EVERY. DAY.

Reading this review of the TGR-910RE has me a bit worried about the PC case:

Anyone know if these issues were raised in the IC and addressed by Senter?

I would expect those kinds of problems with a polycarbonate case. Discontinuity can only *REALLY* be sorted out if you machine it all from the same block (unibody) or take EXTREME care in manufacture of the separate parts. Warping, visual differences between units (and same-unit parts), finish differences, etc. are all side-effects of using a less stalwart material than the common metals we see.

All reasons I won't buy PC multi-part cases. A polycarb Tofu or Klippe? Sure. Not for builds like this, though. Not yet.

I have a poly RE and have literally 0 complaints about the said board. It is actually my current favorite among my 20-ish boards  :))

He probably got a bit frustrated with the dry spell we had there for a while. Took a bit before there was something new I wanted to buy into. The Grid 600 broke that spell for me.

I read this as there will be extra Aluminum parts.

So if we buy the base option just to secure a board during the preorder, we can always go back (within a reasonable amount of time) after the GB and buy the upgrades?


Yes, there will be leftover parts for sure.

Senter,

Hey, I was curious about the extra parts you had mentioned above. Would you happen to have any extra hotswap PCBs that would work with my HHKB layout? If so I would like to know if I could add one to my order if we can do that.

Thanks!

other boards being
alice, gray 910, hhkb jp, hhkb, keycult 1/60 brass edition

Yes

How would I go about doing that? I would ask in DM, but it doesn’t seem to be going through anymore.
