Built a keyboard for @Cereal recently, shipping it off today. Pretty nice start to his journey 😁

View attachment 60878
  • KBD67 mkii Soldered PCB
  • Alu plate
  • NK Silk Yellow switches
  • NK PBT PBOW caps.

Stabs are Cherry screw-ins, but clipped and lubed, and they sound and feel fantastic.

Pretty decent soldering too:

It's so amazing. I'm loving it.
Mad props to @Kaamraan the build quality is insane, couldn't have asked for any better <3

I got lazy this weekend and just didn't make the parts I planned to... whoops ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Anyway here are some pics of the Ikki68 extras. There is a little bit of pitting in the material that I used for the badge but stress not, I will use different stock for any future pieces.

Side note, if anyone wants some silicone bump-ons for the bottom of their keyboard, shoot me a message. I may have ordered 960 more than I need for a project.

These bad boys just arrived! XDA Honey keycaps


30 day shipping. Paid R350 in total
Is that the LK67 with honey keycaps and, lemme guess, gateron yellows? BUDGET AWESOME?!

If it is, I am actively resisting something similar.

Anyone tried this yet? I'm tempted to try as its only R140
I ordered this a month ago. Tracking says "out for delivery but it has been like that for weeks. Not at home at the moment, so not sure if someone there received it for me. As far as I know, it is the real deal, or at least "Good enough"

TK68 ;). Budget awesome indeed. The ASA keycaps it came with are phenomenal as well! 7 day battery life + pre lubed stabs

I'm going to order some just for the lols.

Did your keycaps come through the post office or courier directly?

Post. But I have an idea that because it was a rather large box, it went through customs quicker. Normal China Post was really fast in this case.

Hey all, is there a local source for some Krytox 105?

Or is anyone willing to part with some of their supply?

Hey everyone.

As some of you may have seen we're a local proxy for the Deliciosa Deskmat group-buy that's been running this month. If you haven't seen these deskmats, you can check them out at the link below. We're really excited to be proxying some international group-buys and since adding the Deliciosa deskmats we've got another two lined up which open for orders next week (these will run for a month and are already on our site to look at).

There are 2 days left on the Deliciosa deskmats for anyone interested. I realize that I should have posted this a long while ago already so I apologize for the late message. We wont be able to accept any new orders after the 20th but if you really want to join the group-buy but can't commit until the end of the month please DM me before it closes and we'll make sure we get your order included.

Shipping to customers on the above is expected to be Dec / Jan.
