[IC] F62-PE keyboard by Alf re-run

Original GB link: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=96650.0

Overview

Recently saw someone with a F62-PE IRL, CNC’d by ALF, and very bumped out that I didn’t get into this hobby sooner. Well, I got in touch with the guy behind ALF (Xuxian), and he told me he could make a batch of F62-PE, with an MOQ of 20, which would cost $390 + shipping for the whole kit.

Features

  • 7° typing angle
  • QMK compatible Immersion Gold PCB
  • Aluminum plate
  • Titanium plated screw
  • Detachable Mini B. Cable not included.

Additional Details

These are from Xuxian himself. I can add more details if you have questions.

  • There were only three rounds of these keyboards, less than 50 of them in total
  • Top and bottom of case is equal in height, split in middle
  • The case itself weight a freaking 4KG
  • The keyboard can be shipped in 60 days.
  • If anyone is interested, I can work with a local Cerakoat vendor to get more colours than the grayscale. Won’t be cheap though.

Who’s running this

I am a programmer, with two kids, situated in Hong Kong, and started using mechs for about 3 years now. Started to get serious this year and now settled on a 30g capacitative keyboard…for now. I realised that the coolest keyboards are all GBs and limited in quantity. So, I got in touch with some manufacturers and see if they can re-run some stuff. Anyways, if this run is successful I can probably do this part time and make pretty keyboards a bit more accessible. Cheers.

This is perhaps the fanciest tray mounted board I’ve seen :eyes:

I like it


#3

I like it as well, very reminiscent of a Kishsaver! :ok_hand:


#4

I’d probably go in for one


#5

That case is lit. Will there be a hot swap option?


#6

I’ve always liked this board. However, for those who love the style and can’t hack the premium price tag, there is always the Saver case from @keyboardbelle

Shameless plug for her here, since I love her products:

Apologies for thread hijack. Just an option for people w/o money to spare at the moment.

The cases sound very nice as well. FYI


#7

Holy crap, that case is offered in so many colors!


#8

Nope, not hot swap PCB.


#9

I’m definitely in if you can get this going! I love the kishsaver, but I also need my fancy colorways and minila layouts.

The best of both worlds!


#10

Would there be any plans to make this support generic 60% pcbs like the GH60?


#11

For this IC that would be a no. The case has a break out daughter board that is specific to the board.


#12

Could the daughterboard be rigged to work with any pcb even if extra steps are required? I don’t mind getting my hands dirty with soldering if need be.
