    Signature Plastics is so busy they have suspended taking new orders. My keys haven’t shipped yet, I just had an email saying one space bar colour was out of stock. If that is all I will still be pretty happy...

    I was wondering: I saw somewhere in the past someone making CheeryMX—>Amiga 3D printed key adapters.
    Beside the fact that it would sit the keys a bit higher wouldn’t it be a good idea??

    It’s certainly worth a look - maybe the keys would be higher than ideal? Or maybe the Cherry switch stem fits entirely inside the Amiga square receptacle so that the adapter is just making it fit snugly and there is no height difference, I actually have no Amiga keys to look at.

    Anyway I got a nice surprise today - keyswitches delivered. When I get the stabilisers the keyboards will be complete, when the A600 comes I will be able to test them, then I can actually ship some out.

    @Rakeim132 Yes, that's exactly what I'm searching for since I bought a1200 keyboard here.
    Didn't find any 3d designs for CheryMX to A1200 keys (I searched google).
    Do you know of any such designs ready for 3d print?

    Hey everyone, another short update. I am still waiting on stabilisers for the keyboards, and also on the A600 that is to be used as a model for fitting the rails that keep the keyboard in the right place. I have now been waiting for around eight weeks...

    @medojev: no but I’m pretty sure I saw or heard about that before... I’ll dig into it.

    @Aeberbach: do you need an A600 for tests ?

    @rakeim132 I do need one... I bought one here on May 18 but tracking shows it is still sitting in France waiting for an international flight!

    My Signature Plastics keys arrived! Ordered May 19, arrived today.

    Great set of keys!

    Only comments:
    - The Help key is a bit funny but okay...
    - The CAPS lock key has no LED ???

    Other than that, wonderful.... If I was going QWERTY that's all I'd need Unfortunately I'm after an AZERTY layout...

    PM me for an A600. If it's only for mock-up purpose or if you need a fully working one I might be able to borrow you one. I am not selling, lol.

    Hi, loving the keyboard and was just wondering how much the full set of caps cost in total? Thanks

    The Signature Plastics order was US$180. Expensive but once you start down the road and if the end turns out to be expensive, the regret of giving up would be greater than skipping some other purchase. And damn it feels good to type on! These SP keys are solid and really complement the mechanical keyswitches.
