Made in the United States by Datamancer, this hardwood case for the Infinity Ergodox offers an earthy alternative to harsh lines and the cold, industrial feel of machined metal.

Anyone know someone in Alexandria, VA to Washington DC that does keyboard clubs? Reason I am asking is I am wondering about who would be willingly to build the ERGODOX keyboard for me. I have all the kits but no time to do the soldering myself at this moment. I am willingly to pay for someone to do the job for me. (Reasonable price of course)..

I'm afraid I won't be ordering anything else from Datamancer. This thing is flimsy. I had to manually reinforce all of the connections, the screws are really cheap, and the fit is so incredibly tight that some of the keys actually rubbed against the case. The rubber feet are laughably cheap and thin with bad adhesive (again, had to replace myself) and the design is such that all the pressure from typing pushes the flimsy inner container away from the flimsy outer container, and is only held together by flimsy bolts and receivers that I had to re-glue myself. If you put the <cheap> rubber feet on the inner casing, this solves the pressure problem, but then it looks dumb and it's wobbly.
For the price, you'd think they could do a better job with quality. I'm super disappointed. I'll post pics when it breaks. I type like an ape, so I really need something more substantial. The plastic case that came with the ED Infinity is actually pretty bomb proof. Just kinda ugly.

UPD: received my replacement from Datamancer. No issues so far. Thanks a lot!
I have bad experience with Purple Heart / Full Hand. Left part cracked when I started assembly (move it upside down with unscrewed bottom). No issues with right part. Can you help me?

Purple Heart.
Approximately what is a good commonly available stain / mix of stains to achieve this color? I am interested in applying it to some bamboo items so that they may match.

It's not a stain, that's actually just the wood. You may be able to find a wood stain that is designed to match Purpleheart in color.

Bought this on the last drop. The wood itself is great, but the details are pretty low quality. The rubber feet are just shitty stickers that fall off if you move the keyboard slightly, the screw holes are cheaply glued in place and fall out pretty easily (I've had to super glue half of them back in place), and the back-plate that screws on doesn't fit cleanly, making it uneven after you attach it.
Once you have it in the case and it's sitting on your desk, this really isn't a huge deal. But when I'm paying $125 for a laser cut piece of wood, I expect a little better.
EDIT: To anyone reading this. I reached out to Datamancer support with my complaints, and they sent me a brand new case free of charge! This one was of significantly higher build quality, and I am FAR more satisfied with my purchase. Great customer service, and I'll be much more likely to buy from them in the future.

I know this has nothing to do with the product specifically, but where does one get these types of keyboards.  I am not a programmer or anything, I just want it for the ergos.

I ggled for prices and a good chunk of aluminium can be had for USD30 with free shipping. Dimensions 1,5x5x8 inches. Two would be needed would needed per split kb. I would call it the pocket battleship keyboard.

Yeah the material is really a tiny fraction of the cost. Acquiring billet metals is easy. Machining them to your desired shape is where things get whacky. These wood cases are comparatively easy to machine, so I'm certain that's helping to keep costs down (faster cutting = lower machine time and tool wear). Battleship is an appropriate name for it. Also "Destroyer" ... of wallets. :D

Falbatech.pl has relatively cheap oak wood cases for the standard ergodox. I've got a b-ware one for 45 Euro 😃see https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/6yer7z/oak_wood_ergodox_my_first_build/ Yes this is a much thinner case, with design that does not look as clean as this one. On the other hand it is smaller, still looks great IMHO and who would want to complain for the price?

@Datamancer are the markings inside the purple heart intentional? They look like some kind of a cylinder pattern. I'm pretty much torn between the purple heart or the black walnut. Between purple heart and Black walnut, which is a more stronger wood or are they the same strength with the same durability?

They're not exactly intentional, those "cylinders" are a result of the cutter when it cuts them out. It happens mostly on the purpleheart, since it has a natural purple oil that seeps out in certain areas. It's completely hidden when the case is assembled.
As far as strength: The purpleheart is definitely the stronger/denser wood. Walnut is actually pretty soft for being considered a hardwood.

Agree with Morte and raorin, unfortunately a lot of people are receiving either two right pcbs or two lefts from the last drop of the ergodoxes. If they are wise they should still get into this drop if they like wood aesthetic as it's hard to say if the infinity ergodox will come back to Massdrop since their relationship with I:C has recently ended. Fortunately, I was one of the few lucky people not affected with problems with shipment and quality assurance. So sad.

@Datamancer Is there any "slope" to the full hand version or is it flat? If it is flat, could we get an unfinished one, so that we can modify the ergonomics of the hand profile and then finish ourselves?

They're being pretty tight lipped about it, but you can sign up for their notification/mailing list for the Ergodox here: https://input.club/devices/infinity-ergodox/
Haven't had any emails from them specifically for it, or anything else keyboard related, since signing up in...late July, early August? So I don't think you'll be getting marketing spam like other companies' mailing lists.

Yeah there are other places you can get an ergodox board but admittedly I don't know as much about that board, so I'm not sure if other PCBs will fit this frame. Maybe someone more knowledgeable or @Datamancer can clear up whether they are or if this will only fit the infinity.

Given the recent Massdrop/Input Club brouhaha, what do you folks think the odds are we'll see the infinity ergodox sold again? Infinity Ergodox + Datamancer case is my current endgame, but IDK if I should commit to buying the case if there's a chance I'll never be able to get my hands on the PCB...

I felt the same thing when I assembled mine, but I took some steps to address it before I damaged it by mistake.
I made a point to take the pressure off the screws/posts themselves while tightening by clamping the two pieces together, tighten the screws to just a bit over finger tight, then remove the clamps and everything expands/sets into place nicely.
