I'd really like to get a closer up picture of the grain
Will this case work for a jj50 PCB?

Yeah unfortunately, it seems like the case isn't compatible, the JJ50 and the Ortho60 do seem to have the same layout though. I have no idea whether or not you could modify a case to make it work though.
Datamancer
I ordered one anyway! Going to see if I can make it fit and if so, will post an update here and on /MK
So happy to see this drop go live, and a great price too. Grabbing a cherry one.
Wait a sec...this is for rev 2 only?

They have different screw mounting locations mostly. The USB hole is slightly in a different spot as well.
Rats! Thanks for the info and I’ll keep waiting.
Would love to see this come back for the rev3s!
@Datamancer any chance you could offer a walnut case for this board? https://www.massdrop.com/buy/xd75-aluminum-mechanical-keyboard. I'd love to get a wooden case for it. Thanks!

Great!!!!
Jalara
There is some tinkering you have to do, but the XD75 can fit into a lot of different standard 60% cases and there are a ton of wood options for those :)
@Datamancer might you be able to make a hardwood case for Preonic rev 1? Or might you have already done so and I missed the boat? :)
Lucasho
Hey, sorry I missed this message. I haven't made a case for the rev 1, and I unfortunately don't plan to since it's no longer being manufactured. I am curious though, if the plate were removed if the PCB would fit the case. I'll do some checking on this.
Datamancer
no worries. yeah, with the Preonic Rev3 dropping shortly, would love to get a wood case for that one. Please make it happen! :) I avoided this drop cos I only have Rev 1, and am planning to get Rev 3!
@Datamancer Hey man do you know if it fits the JJ50? Thanks!

It'd be cool to have a version where everything is done except for the standoffs which come in a little baggie. Each position for the preonic or jj50 points could be marked by a little divot, and you drill and install :D I imagine there's more to consider though!
It's definitely something I'll look in to!
@Datamancer: any chance you're also working on a let's split case or nyquist or anything ortho split? And if so, how to stay up to date? Love your products!
HZZZA
I would like to at some point. It's definitely a possibility in the near future. I don't have any kind of mailing list currently, but if I were to make one, I would probably be putting it on my website and the Datamancer Labs Facebook page.
Datamancer
Thanks for your reply, will follow closely there!
This fits the Rev 2 that Massdrop had last year right?
tigerali
Yes this is a Rev 2 case. If anyone needs a Rev 3 case, I will be working on redesigning it, and you can contact me at Marketing@datamancer.com with your order number from Massdrop to get one!
Will this work with the upcoming Rev 3 pcb?

Thanks for the reply!
Thank you.
Well Datamancer I will stop trashing your production times as shipping on this project is a week and a half ahead of schedule! Congrats. I have always liked your products and with this product shipping on time and even a touch early I could not be happier. Once received and reviewed I will leave positive feedback in all the usual places. Thank you!
Any updates on shipping? @Datamancer
I'm loving my wooden Planck Hardwood Case!

Shipped today!
What's the name of this keycap set?
rumchata
I believe it is mostly the Mito Canvas set, but the number row might be a different set.
EDIT: Just to be clear, this drop does not include any keycaps. It is only the wooden case.
The thing I like about this is that it looks more like a box full of buttons than a keyboard.
That's a pretty case!
I can’t see it from the pictures, is it high or low profile?
VaclavKucera
It's compatible with the Hi-Pro style.
What height keycaps are compatible? SA ? MT3?
any reason why the magnets are not covered but naked? Similar design in https://www.facebook.com/commerce/products/1579547898768433/ looks better in my opinion
I like how they have a second keycap set on the number row *snicker*
Anyone have ideas about how to plug the cable hole during transit? I constantly get sand in anything that goes in my backpack...

Makes sense! Much appreciated.
vosechu
so by the end of the day you will have your keyboard in a case which you carry in a protective case to protect it from elements in your backpack (another case). BUT WHAT PROTECTS THE BACKPACK?!
A word of caution. This is a Datamancer drop so it will be at least three weeks behind schedule. The product is usually pretty awesome just always late, even their direct orders are late.

Well thanks for the compliments!
Well the pressure is on now ;p
Where can I get a top plate for this case?
yshrsmz
I know this isn’t an answer to your question, but I thought I’d mention that you can go plateless. at least, that’s my intention.
yshrsmz
At some point you should be able to get a plate at www.olkb.com/preonic. It seems like they're not currently available yet though. The top plate is not necessary for this case to work though.
Do I need the bent case to fit in this or is it just the pcb mounted to the base?

It's probably worth mentioning that the "EOTW Plate Kit" plate won't work either.
DrDanDrengle
Yes good point.
