Starting redraws slowly today(as they come in), and will continue tomorrow. There are only 1 so far.

I think I’ve lost 4 or 5 raffles in the last 30 days. Feels bad man.

Interesting, I was about to get a copper plate for another board of mine. Would you happen to have sound tests of the different plates? Curious to see how carbon fiber sounds against the metal.

Well, carbon will always be more muted than any metal…

Seems like i deleted my message:
I am doing some in-depth testing of the Tind. Since the plate is totally isolated, the plate is super important to sound.

The copper plate plate feel great and clacky, but in certain configurations it can produce a light metallic sound on hard bottom outs (almost pinging), this is especially true for unlubed switches. The same goes for brass, but in a much lesser degree. Carbon fiber does not have this issue. Most of you already chose carbon fiber as the plate material.

If you want to change plate to carbon fiber, or make any other changes, please reply to your order confirmation.
Keep in mind that all plates will be for sale so you can just buy a new plate after you have tested for yourself.

Thank you!

Tip:
Take some silicone sealant and apply in the center of the plate (underside obviously) in a slightly thick layer and let dry. Helps with ping and is removable whenever needed without residue. Experimented recently. Need to check if copper would be affected though.

I checked and it doesn’t seem that copper and silicone would react readily. There are copper and silicone compounds however, and I can’t say anything about copper being stained or marked by the silicone. So please don’t try right now till I can say for sure. Don’t want your nice new plate destroyed cause an idiot on the internet told you.
