If anyone who bought the wine red version wants to trade their red base for my forest green one: let me know!

Buys like this are usually the product of one person producing them in their free time. Manufacturing dozens of keyboards, coordinating manufacturers, interacting with customers, shipping around the world... is a BIG job with lots of effort required. They have to limit their runs in order to help keep it manageable and successful. Just the way it goes.

Any idea of what the PC case weight is? I'm assuming it doesn't weigh quite as much as the ~2.1kg Alum case.

PC is a little less than half the density of Aluminum (1.20g/cm3 to 2.7 g/cm3). So if the weight is 800g that means the aluminum case itself is 1300g (ignoring plate and rest of build).

So if Auminum case is 1300g, PC case would be about 577g.

So 577g + 800g= 1377g total, as a ballpark weight

But hopefully Louis has an exact number
Heh, the Volcano is one heavy board. It clocks in at about 2400g for the Alum, about 5-6kg is expected for the brass one. The PC one will likely be between 1-2kg if I had to guess.

Really sad I missed this GB, just want to let the creator know that I would totally buy one if given the chance.  Hopefully you are able to do some more in the future if everything goes smoothly.  I'm in love with the PC model and the 660 layout is gorgeous, also gasket mount sounds really cool.

Ok this is definitely my favorite board of the year now, and by a good margin. It was before, but now without a doubt

Not sure if your are in the discord or not (but you should be! :) ) but Louis posted a few days ago that the CNC process is completed for all of the brass and aluminum boards! PC had a receheck with all of the PC buyers due to the color of the PC when itís as thick as it needs to be for volcano, and that was approved by all buyers quick.

Next up is Anno and QC, then the much anticipated shipping! Last word was that all is on track or ahead of estimates :)

Also interested in one of these, if anyone has a carbon black or grey they're willing to give up.

Are there any plans on doing another group buy for this board, possibly a larger run? I'm guessing after the first GB is completed, this'll give you a better gauge on your decision.

Bummed I missed out on this but then again, looks like you had to be lightning quick with the order form. This board ticks all my boxes in terms of aesthetics, features, and layout. Looking forward to seeing the builds in here.

Hi guys posting on behalf of Louis's behalf. There has been a slight delay in production due to pcb issues. It was recently discovered that due to some issues the current layout that is supported is .

If you are sure that you want ONLY this bottom layout. Then fill out this form https://forms.gle/JoijmzZ5J4xpPzJCA

AGAIN ONLY FILL OUT THE FORM IF YOU WANT ONLY THAT LAYOUT SHOWN ABOVE.

Otherwise, you have the choice to wait as louis is making the corrected pcb which has the eta of around 3-4 weeks currently. Everyone who fills out the form listed above because they ONLY want the listed layout will receive their volcanoes earlier.

To stay more up to date with the project make sure you join the tyl discord for quick updates.

Updates for volcano(Sep 25th)
As we know, we had some of the anodising issue. It affects some of the blue, green and some grey kits.
Today, I just received some pics and vidoes from factory, factory says due to the raw material problem(6063 series alum), the final product is still not idea(This is 3rd rounds we failed).
As the pic shows, there is a white stripe on the side surface, it is not that visible but I don't accept that. This is normal appearance on all the alum keyboard kits even for TGR boards, some raw material doesn't have this problem, but some does.

I already put 1 year on this project and I don't want to give up. As designer but also keyboard enthusiast like you guys, I want to deliver a really high end keyboard to all the buyers, from inside to outside, all the detail parts I cared, Volcano is my faith. I will try my best.

Sorry for the things we screwed it up T.T
 
I will ask factory to use Kobe 5052 or 7075 to redo those kits, they promised it is good but I need to let all the buyers know first before we process the work, should be 10 more days to redo those kits.
