This is an IC for Stainless steel and damascus steel sandwich cases for 60% PCBs.
Reason for steel is that I am fed up with dents on my keebs, little scratches, or marks on the anodized alu surfaces.
The idea is that there will be some bottomplates and quite a few plates with different layout.
There is no moq for plates, I take orders based on keyboard-layout-editors data which you can send me. Ansi, iso, hhkb, some custom, it is all right
– plate and bottomplate thickness is 3 mm
– stainless steel / mirror polished / brushed
– damascus steel
– spacers: steel or brass
– fasteners: stainless torx screws
Currenty it is an estimate
steel / mirror / brushed is EUR 140-200
damascus steel is a rough estimate EUR 220-280
What is tested already:
I have some 3 mm thick steel plates with different layouts on my different keyboards working.
hhkb / a katana60 pcb layout / ansi
What needs to be tested:
I am waiting currently on some materials for the first prototypes
I plan to make 2 boards with damascus steel for prototyping this autumn.
what do you guys say?
