Retro60 Available for Pre-Order

more_vert
As some of you may know, I have been working on a 60% case drawing inspiration from the iconic Apple m0110 keyboard. Today I am proud to announce that it is now available for pre-order available in both wood and aluminum.

This is one of the ugliest cases I've ever seen and at an insane price point. Similar cases go for about half the price on Massdrop. The logo on the bottom is huge and unattractive.

Thank you for your feedback! We produce most of our products in America where higher labor costs contribute to an overall higher cost.

It looks like it should. I don’t see anything that would prohibit it from working but I have not personally confirmed it is compatible

@evangs question about the 7u plate. What are the possible configurations of the left most modifiers? From the diagram it looks like 1.5u, 1u, 1.5u. Then it looks like 2.75u, 1.5u, 2.75u, followed by 5 of 1u. Could you also do 1.25u, 1.5u, 1.25u? Does the PCB support that?

I don’t think so. That would require the 1.25 mount to be shifted slightly to the right and we didnt do that

is there any chance to have one aluminium version WKL as the original M0110 a la HHKB? I'd love that case with this retro profile... please, it is just 2 corners blocked...

This case reminds me of the RAMA M65-A, but in true 60% form factor. Big, bold, chunky and most likely heavier than it seems.
Alas, my parents are going to let me buy one after the pre-order period ends. *sigh* I'll just verbally express my envy when these start popping up on people's desks.
Out of curiosity, how deeply recessed are the case mounts, and how deeply recessed are they with the risers installed?

so with risers the pcb sits so that the bottom of the keycaps comes down to the top of the case. without the risers it drops down 3mm. If using cherry profile, oem, DSA, XDA, etc I recommend using the risers. SA I would recommend not using them. but obviously it'll work with and without risers for any profile.

Case render looks almost black, offering a silver variant I think would be very popular.

I liked the unfinished prototype aluminum case you showed off too, but the dark grey anodized version is very cool.
