The Heavy-6


#428

Here are a couple pictures of the Black/Black FC660c with “Aperture” finish. I absolutely love the combination! Royal wrinkle + Black/Black would look incredible as well.


#429

That looks amazing, and would have been the Heavy6 case I would have bought if I had an FC660c.


#430

Custom cable from mechcables showed up today, very simple but goes well I think…


#431

Royal Wrinkle looks amazing. I’m still torn between that enigma gray for my new black/black silenced FC660C… @norbauer, any chance you’d be interested in offering local pickup for those of us in Silicon Valley as well?


#432

Thanks!


#433

My Royal Wrinkle came in last night and the quality is INCREDIBLE! I love the texture and the weight. Amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail @norbauer! Thank you for delivering such a quality product to the community.

All these shots of Royal Wrinkle sapped my impulse control and I’m glad I caved!
There’s nothing quite like this texture, it’s so satiny I keep just rubbing the sides of the board.
The reflective grain takes my breath away, all I can think is “designer brimstone”.
Wish I had mx sliders to pop Sanctuary on it, something I might work toward now.
Thank you so much Ryan for adding these finishes!


#435

This is one impulse buy that I think would be difficult to regret. It’s endgame quality and completely worth it IMO

I am finding that I enjoy waxing the Monolith more than I thought I would. It is kind of calming. The smooth sheen the wax leaves behind and the smell of the wax are both kind of calming.


#437

I didn’t even pop open my jar to sniff it. It’s Carnauba wax, right? I was afraid my wife might see me polishing my keyboard and ask me to apply some to the coffee table. I can see this spiraling downwards into an onerous burden. I don’t want to know what it costs or where to get more, but I’m sure Mr. Norbauer would be happy to provide that information if one were to ask, which I’m not.

AM I HEAVY ENOUGH BOIS?


#439

In all fairness though, I will almost certainly wax that sucker up before I take it to the next Ohio meetup. I’m not going to lie, I’m shallow like that.


#440

what’s your opinion on the 9009 kbdfan keys?


#441

I dig them a lot personally. The legends give them a little bit of texture on the top which I enjoy. Great quality (I believe this is their second iteration on this set) dye-sub PBT. One of the very few Topre keycap sets available that I’ve seen (let alone with Mac modifiers at that).

If you don’t want to mess with switching out sliders for MX compatibility, def worth a shot.


#442

These are actually being fulfilled for me. Though they’re coming from here in Silicon Valley as well, the warehouse isn’t open to the public. Apologies.


#443

@norbauer Once the last few heavy 6’s have sold, is there any chance you could share the final production number on each finish/colorway?


#444

Would you mind sharing the options you chose? They have so many combinations to choose from! TIA


#446

Sure
3ft

Mini-B 2.0 (Silver) — (Pok3r, FC660, Magicforce, etc)
USB A 2.0 (Silver)
Blue heatshrink
No Techflex
NO COIL


#447

how would you guys explain the feel of the finishes? It looks like motorsport yellow and aperture are fairly glossy and smooth to the touch, whereas the maritime and retro fridge are more matte. Thoughts?


#448

@pixelpusher That is all correct.
