After 5 years working as a keycap maker, this is the first time I try to make a cherry profile spacebar, yes, the spacebar in cherry profile…
a bit of history
What do we talk about when we talk about 8-bit? Well, there’s one thing we’re sure that it was, has been, and will ever be the golden era of the gaming world. Flashback 37 years ago, we wanted you to take a trip down memory lane, to reminisce about the very first time you held your console that’s taking the world by storm during that time and marking the start of the third generation of video game consoles. This period saw the dawn of 8-bit handheld consoles originated from Japan, and their legendary games coming along.
another world unravelled
To human’s eyes, the 8-bit gaming world seems to be only presented with the more improved visual and sound capabilities than the previous generation, but somewhere in 1983, up in...

This is my dream combo for my desk, hope to make it a reality soon.
May from the Gray Studio has designed and prototyped a premium, 60-key CNC milled, acrylic switch lubing station. The lubing station has been optimized a few iterations and prototyped to work very nicely with various switches.
Potter will consider holding a GB on Graystudio.club soon if there is enough interest. The cost will be a bit higher than 3D-printed ones but affordable.

Hello keeb friends,
It's been a while since the Think6.5 GB! Hope you are doing well and staying healthy.
I have started this design last year but was not able to start an IC due to personal reasons. Now things are much better, I now decide to start an interest check for R2 Think6.5 named '2020.' For those of you who are curious about how the R1 design looks like, here is the original IC: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=99634
Importantly, please let me know if you prefer the original badge position or the new badge position. And board material suggestions. Any questions, please feel free to ask. And welcome any constructive feedback.

Updating more details:
1. Mounting: Gasket-mount. Designed a new type of gasket design that I am personally very excited about (more details to come)
Greetings Mech Keys Community,
It goes without saying that the last 6 months have been pretty turbulent for everyone. We’ve gone from running at full capacity, to complete factory shutdowns, working from home, and operating a social distanced shipping operation. The good news is that we're finally starting to adapt to all of these changes and get our feet under us. We've gone from being extremely behind and delayed on everything, to almost catching up and being in-stock on most of our popular products. COVID is still around, but we’ve made significant operational changes to try to minimize its disruption on our core operations. For those of you who have patiently stood by and supported us, we extend a huge thank you for your support.
Throughout this time, we've invested a significant amount of time planning the next 12 months and we’ve thought long and hard about a vision for how we want to focus our offerings to the Mechanical Keyboard community. The theme that we found to be...
Ive been customizing the hell out of my keyboard and I love it, but I want a wrist rest that isn't some foam ugly rectangle. I know that a few wrist rests have been sold before, but I feel like I never see many. Anybody else want to see a variety of wrist rests that are unique, like many of the artisan key caps?
We've recently been informed by our keycap partner, GMK, that the ship dates on all keycap sets have been pushed back due to manufacturing delays that they are experiencing. They've communicated the following estimated ship dates* to us:
GMK White on Black - October 2020
GMK Red Samurai - November 2020
GMK Belafonte - December 2020
GMK Hennessey - December 2020
GMK Godspeed - January 2021
GMK Kaiju - January 2021
GMK Blue Samurai - February 2021
GMK Laser - February 2021
We're obviously very disappointed to hear this news and GMK has assured us that they are doing everything that they can to "catch up" on their schedule. As one of GMK's largest keycap distributors, we have guaranteed manufacturing slots so these delays are less severe for us versus other vendors running group buys. Please note that the above shipping estimates are based on scheduled production capacity, and may be further adjusted based on designer approvals (for example: color matching a specific set could...
Drop alt keyboard no longer works after setting wrong bin file
So I was trying to remap and change the leds on my drop alt keyboard and I accidently put the applet-flash-samd51j18a.bin file instead of my own and now I can't get it back, the keyboard just doesn't work I even tried the button on the bottom of the keyboard to reset it that way on cmd and it didn't work. Does anyone know how to fix this?
I am planning to buy a drop alt but am unsure of the switches I should choose. My keyboard would be primarily for gaming but also some typing. I would also prefer a quieter noise as to not create noise through my microphone when playing with people. It seems to me like the MX Browns are a good choice but I have seen that the Halo Clears might be better? I am still a beginner around keyboards so suggestions would be very much appreciated.
This is a long time since the last post! And finally I sorted out all the problems, come up with the 4th version of the Space Trek prototype. Hopefully, you will like it.
This is a special flip paint which originally use on cars, I did a special coating at the bottom to gives better adhesion. Apart from that, I also did a "Graphene" coating on top to gives more protection on the paint, which can avoid some little scratch.
The project is not finish, yet! I still got some improvement to do before it launch. And will post some update later on.
Thank you for your reading, please do not hesitate to leave me your comments.
