Just want to update people who have backed this drop that there are some error in the Massdrop system regarding price and quantity for different materials Will update everyone soon when we have an answer

SMRTGadgetThats just not right guys... I ordered these. Waited so long to actually see that you canceled the drop. I'm pretty pissed.
Even if it was a pricing mistake, its not the customer's fault. You should cover that difference and learn your lesson.
Kind regards. Petar

Confused by the listing, in one spot(the "note") it says 2 stainless steel is "+$2" and another part of the listing("style options") it says "-$2"

Received mine. They are a bit smaller overall than I imagined. As in, the diameter of the top is roughly the width of the top of a keycap. This is decidedly small because there is no taper beyond that dimension, so the ideal dimension it shouldn't have been based on would be closer to the width of a bottom of a keycap. Obviously I have no idea what they based the dimension on, but I do hope they try out an increased diameter since these are already round, making for even bigger gaps between them.
They are also incredibly hard to get on. I'm sure its possible that their tooling just wore down throughout the process (tiny end mills don't last very long) but brass has no flex, so the stem needed to maintain some critical dimensions. Wasn't the switches either, as I attempted to mount them on every variety I have on hand (Cherry, Gateron, Kailh, and others). Overall, they are well made at least. If I were to make a suggestion, batch check every 10-25 with a gauge block in the future to get a better grasp on tooling wear. Or possibly switch to using two prongs instead of all 4 to reduce the chances for tolerance changes (only needing to maintain the diagonal dimension between the two).

One minor problem overall is that the MX "+" pattern has two different thicknesses. The vertical is 0.043" thick while the horizontal is 0.049" thick (at least on the Cherry switches I have on hand). If a keycap doesn't have a direction, you will run into issues mounting a keycap if the orientation of the stem doesn't match what you are mounting to. Unless both slots are wide enough to fit the horizontal. Metal just happens to have a lot less 'give' compared to other plastic keycaps.
Overall diameter? I'd say somewhere around 0.650"-0.700" as the bottom of a typical keycap appears to be around ~0.710".

CyphreCould you share photos of the keycaps please? It'd be great to see the final keycaps customers have received.

how much would a full set go for? would a bulk discount be possible? 4 and 2 at a time is ungainly

SarreqTeryxWe would love to do full set, but are having hard time to estimate volume for raw material purchases. Do you have any suggestions?

Do the stainless steel keycaps contain nickel alloy?
It might be fun to use them as escape keys with various typewriter keycap sets sold on MD. I'm just wondering if people with nickel allergies will find stainless steel unusable over time. Some SS is hypoallergenic; some is not.
