Group Buys Awaiting Fulfillment

(check discord for more detail - and if you have general questions you'd like answered in real time)

Epbt 6085

  • (2022-02-14) Molds for D60 had to be remade. Keycaps expected to be completed in March.

Radiance TKL

  • (2021-08-28) Near the end of production
  • (2021-08-01) Still in production
  • (2021-10-16) Awaiting update from manu
  • (2021-11-1) Production is complete. Sorting for shipping
  • (2021-11-26) Due to power restrictions in China during this time. Some parts had to be re-made and due to delays from said power restrictions - the production period has been extended. Looking at December shipping.
  • (2021-12-13) No real update. Hoping for the factory to complete on time. But reality is that the factories in the region are restricted to 1 day of full production per week. Which, if the original estimate was say, 4-7 weeks for refinishing the parts (at 100% capacity), we are looking at multiple times magnitude of delay. This is assuming that the power situation does not improve.
  • (2022-02-14) 
    Real update - Radiance to be able to ship out (to me) around early March.
    Factory is back in production. Barring any delays for Olympic geo-politics display, we hope that there should be no further delays.

    Coding and Wave Deskmats

    • Coding and Wave Deskamts have arrived
    • (I forgot to mark date on when we did this) - We have QC'd them and will fulfill in a order# procedure QC was not 100%, we have sorted them to the best of our ability. We're hoping that our extras can cover all the orders despite the high fail rate.
    • (2021-10-13) 
      I've sent out a good number of orders. I plan on doing a 'sane' amount everyday. 
      I have some concerns for some colors - mainly black++ and seaweed colorways, as it appears a >60% amount has failed and it may affect existing orders. All the vendors are reaching out on this quality concern.
    • (2021-10-16)
      We're about 50% the way through our remaining A stock. Which is bad news unfortunately. There are several colors with almost 80% fail, which means there are several orders that we cannot fulfil out of good faith.
      We and other vendors are working to procure replacements.
    • (2021-11-1) 
      Manufacturer has responded to our complaints. Waiting for action.
    • (2021-11-26)
      Sort of at an impasse. To clarify, everyone involved is working at trying to get A stock deskmats to fullfill outstanding orders. The factory is being non-cooperative as of now. We're trying to find a way to get these deskmats reproduced.
    • (2021-12-13)
      Proxies and Keyspresso are going to be starting up a new manufacturing purchase to finish the remaining A stock fullfillment.

        JTK Azure

        • Still waiting on production to conclude as of 2021-07-04
        • (2021-10-16) - No update.
        • (2021-11-1) - No update. Waiting for followup response
        • (2021-11-26) - JTK said they are currently working on novelties (my understanding is that the rest of the kit is 'done'). 
        • (2021-12-13) - No update.
        • (2022-02-14) - No update. 


        • (2021-12-13) Some time ago, stems had failed in terms of color matching. But now with Factories in china being held up by the power situation, deadline for completion is uncertain.
        • (2022-01-14) Switches undergoing QC.
        • (2022-02-14) Partial completion from JWK. 

        Group Buy Extras

          B-Stock Coding and Wave

          • Unfortunately as a group with other proxies, we have decided not to sell B stock until A stock is fulfilled. 

          Ramen and Penguin

          • (2021-10-16) - I've contacted them about why its taking so long
            I got a reply finally and a tracking number but they told me it was stuck in a local port on their side.
          • (2021-11-1) Shipping tracking is active but no progress beyond port of export
          • (2021-12-13) Shipping tracking died. Contacted manu about it.
          • (2022-02-14) Extras to be listed soon.
