lol, sry can be hard to tell the dif between swedish and finish/swedish layouts  ^-^

The vertical bar (pipe) goes to either along with the accents key or with the <> key. I think they are mostly the same.

Guys please send some pics out to me, if there is a error on the cap from manufacturing, we can summit the error report for replacements asap.
I don't have my set's yet, so i can't inspect the legends.

Thanks for the pics!

I checked my 9009 norde kit and it's pretty much the same as your pic's + a bunch of the base set alphas lol
There is in generally some degree of tilt on some of the legends on varies GMK set's check your WoB G for a instance. Leaning towards center.

I am not sure the percentage is there to justify replacements from GMK, let see once more kit's get delivered. Viewing angle is also something to have in mind, put them lupe's down ^-^

Nautilus Ö is tilted a bit, too.

EDIT: but not more than the OG keycaps shown above. NOREDUK++ kit seems slightly more tilted.

GMK nowadays is more like a "kindly reminder" on how good OG Cherry caps are... it's just me or the tooling, plastic quality, manufacturing QC etc is going downhill?

Apart from the "minor" cap issues, I'm pretty happy with this unique addon. And honestly want to thank once more @RETURNISO for stepping in running the GB and all the ISO fellows that made this possible

Nonesense. These are beautiful and I'm happy someone's putting the effort to get these made.

I didn't notice the slight tilting in my set until it was mentioned here, so it's not really something that sticks out.

This is the first time that PT is getting caps by GMK so even if the quality is weaker than most I don't care. So long as it's double shot abs goodness made in Germany.

Who knows maybe tilted GMK caps will be a novelty in the future. Plus It adds a bit of character to it

The satisfaction for this run isn't at stake here. And actually, I'm the kind of guy who probably wouldn't even have noticed if it weren't for you guys pointing it out.
I do think however, that we are paying for the quality we're used to. This isn't some cheap Chinese crap and it wouldn't hurt if it would be pointed out to them for future reference. Also, even though I know nothing about the manufacturing process, I would suspect this kind of thing is easily avoidable.

Sorry, but ending up paying for crappy QC isn't the same for me! And that's also the kind of thinking that allows GMK to not correct their manufacturing problems in the first place :(

I think that tilted "Ö" have always been like that. It is tilted on all pictures from previous sets that I could find online: Laser, Carbon, Nautilus.

Probably the original tooling is like that, but maybe this is something GMK would like look into and correct for the future runs?

Absolutely. I agree 100%

But again, that's something else entirely. I'm forever thankful and just hope there'll be more in the future. I would never have access to these caps if it wasn't for this initiative and those that participated.

Just saying we're entitled to point it out to GMK so they can please take note and avoid it in the future, which they can probably do without any effort or expense. If they give a ****.
If they don't, I don't think they'll lose their throne because of it either.

Hey

I still haven't received the kit's, so no chance yet to inspect.

First,

Lastet Update - 22.11.19

- Mykeyboard.eu has concluded shipping. All kits should be on the way in the mail. :thumb:
- US orders has been dispatched as-well. Will confirm when Dixie receives them and ships them out.
- Extras. There is unfortunate not a single extra kit. 


Thanks for all the support <3 This was really a unique opportunity ;)

To address the tilting of some of the legends. I could not agree more on the reason we pay a premium for GMK caps, is because of the quality we can expect. 
I am sure tough if we receive enough "effected" caps, GMK will be happy to send replacement if we feel that is simply not good enough.
Even though we have seen some delays from GMK now and the upscale in order's and quantity that could effect manufacturing and QC etc.
GMK have announced that they have planned for expanding production capabilities by 25% if i am not mistaken, so hopefully this is not something we should fear for future GB's 

Mine will finally ship tmr and should be with me next week so i can check them out. Totally my own fault ^-^
I had to combine some stuff with the blanks that ended up being some of the incorrect profiles.

Hope you all are getting them kit's in soon or already have them. Cant wait for mine :p

Yes, you are right.
But if you look closely, the keys from this set are somewhat more tilted.
Obviously, we have to thank ISO_RETURNS and mykeyboard.eu for making this set possible, they are not the ones who produced the keys and did a great job.

 These are not cheap plastics and the defect should be reported. Let GMK be accountable and they may decide if replacement caps should be produced. The gratitude we feel for the run of a scarce set should not be confused with the rights we have as customers that paid for a product. The manufacturer did not make us a favor. The price that covers its MoQ was paid. Business are business.

Guys, i am sure we all agree on that matter..! ;)
As the kit's are still being delivered and i don't have my own kit's yet. I cant really conclude anything yet.

If the problem is consistent I will be reaching out to GMK. Leave a picture of your worst cap's here and if a compression shot is a possibility, that would be great too. 
Then i will collect the images from the thread and use them for a possible replacement run.

Have a great weekend Ya'll :)

 We are very grateful to you, indeed. The comment is towards those sentiments leading to not asking GMK about the issue - if an issue exists - due to gratefulness. While our gratitude is to you that took the risk to run the buy, but not to GMK, that is just doing business, not helping us.

I do think that the best way to see this is that no one had noticed this previously so it has gone unnoticed for years since these keys have been made by GMK. I am sure that GMK would take it into consideration to correct these mistakes as I am sure they hold themselves to a high standard.

The error is minor which explains why it hasn't been noticed, at least until now, and especially moreso with Norde/UK and international kits in general being a vast minority relative to the rest of keys that are often used.
The fewer eyes, the lower the likelihood to tell them apart and pick out these errors.

The best we can do as enthusiasts is to point it out and hope for a future resolution, but at this point, I do not really think GMK is at fault.

Ok, here we go..
I just received both my kits and they're fine.

The WoB's legend looks to be closer to the cap's side than the others. I cannot tell the same about the BoW due to its lack of visual reference for its top's side.

It's difficult to take a good picture with a cellphone because you have to get really close and then distortion kicks in. But believe me, in person there is no issue.
If you wanted to take perfect images, you would have to use a dslr probably with a decent zoom lens.

If you look closely, the Nautilus looks worst in my comparison because it's on the side...
I guess you have to take my word for it.
I would def tell you if there was anything to be concerned about.

I believe you. You have the caps in front of you. There is no other way to better tell if they look different. I was just saying that the so called issue is not the tilt but optical effect of having the legends too close to the edge of the cap. But well, nobody can tell better that those that already got their caps and have something to compare with.

These issues have been flagged and a RCA will be run.

I have made a thread in our forum for transparency to do a follow up on as soon as I hear back from the head office.
