#182

Wow, nice in red. With Jamón keycap set would be the TKL of the year. Well for me anyway.


#183

No White or Silver??


#184

How much is shipping cost to South Korea?

Roughly…


#185

Last time I checked it was around 60 EUR. All packages will be tracked and insured.


#186

oh… good.

I will participate, saying that shipping is possible to Korea including shipping cost.


#187

There are some countries where shipping is very problematic, like Brazil or Russia, because of their customs, and shipping when they arrive to the country. South Korea shouldn’t be a problem.


#188

This keyboard kit looks extremely good, can’t wait for the raffle!


#189

any idea when the raffle will be?


#190

When everything is sorted out. Don’t worry, I will announce it with enough time.


#191

That blue one with GMK TA90 (Triumph Adler) coming later this year… perfection!


#192

#193

RE:Group Buy

I’ve juggling many things simulatenously so for now I can’t give you an ETA of when I’ll do a group buy, perhaps it could be a 2 weeks, or maybe a month or more. If there’s going to be a delay, it will be this one.

So, if it wasn’t obvious, I’ve already have the boards and PCBs with me. I fronted the production for all the keyboard parts many months ago and this is the reason why the group buy has limited quantities. While this is risky, I took this approach because this way I could assure people that they would be getting what they were paying for, and that I could make sure of that.

Since I have the boards, I’ve already inspected them all. Overall, they all the red and grey boards are good, and aside one or two none present any major issues. However, I wasn’t happy at all with the blue keyboards, as they don’t have the anodization requested and many units present a very noticeable color mismatch. This is why earlier this month I announced that I wasn’t going to offer initially Nautilus Blue Vernes.

My current plan for those boards is to strip the anodization and powder coat them. As I’m writing these lines there’s a local factory working on a sample for me. Keep in mind that those boards are probably going to be more expensive.

Please, God, let this be after I receive an infusion of additional funds on or slightly after March 1, 2019
