Where can I buy the key switch mounting plate for the ErgoDox?
Will there be another drop for this? :)
So, received mine. I like it, but two questions: 1. Why is there an extra hole on the top of the plate? 2. Why is the bottom corner hole by the thumb buttons bigger than the others?
Anyone else received theirs? Same issues?

1. This is so you can have easy access to the Teensy's bootloader button, it's by-design. 2. No idea, but DON'T over-tighten that hole, you'll strip the crap out of it
I ordered one of each (Class and Full Hand). Just received them yesterday, and unfortunately I received two sets of Classic plates. I have a Class and Full Hand ErgoDox, so the second set of plates is useless for me and my Full Hand doesn't have any :( I sent an email to support@massdrop.com, hopefully it gets resolved soon
Any chance of a full hand version?

When this drop was active, there was an option for a full-hand version.
Mine are showing out for delivery today.
EDIT: Received mine today. I joined the ErgoDox drop so it'll be a while before I get to use them.
Looks like the classics styles will be going out tomorrow. Woot.
I want 4!!
Hey guys,
We are expecting to get these in at our warehouse towards the end of next week. Progress!
Any ETA on this?
I can only hope this is offered again soon :)
So um... any update on this? Does it really take that long to manufacture at most ~100 plates?
damm, I've lost this one ... Any chance to get it up again? PLEASE?:
During the Ergodox groupbuy weren't they the same price for the full aluminum set? I'd jump on a gb for a full aluminum set.

Just to clarify, in the ErgoDox group buy, the aluminum option was also for the two top plate pieces. The rest of the 8 pieces are all acrylics.
Thank you for adding full-hand, joined!
I failed to notice that this wasn't for the full hand case; can I be taken off of this buy?

If you go to https://www.massdrop.com/transactions you should be able to edit the options and change it to the newly added full-hand option.
kemurphy
as @dag.odenhall pointed out, you should be able to edit your options on the transaction page. if you'd like us to take care of it for you, shoot an email to support@massdrop.com.
Please take me off this group buy. I sent an email about it a few days ago. I misunderstood the product description and have no need for half of a case.
Personally I think the aluminum top sheet is ugly as sin. Especially the screw fixtures. Maybe metal clasps would look better.
Also looking for the full hand version. Did they fix the sharp edges on these sheets?

they are already an option on the ergodox drops

I think what was offered in the last drop was different from these plates.
So no answer about full-hand version of this?<br /><br />I joined just to see if there's an option for full-hand.. Aaand now can't find a way to unjoin :(

Then I need to add one to my order :)<br /><br />PS: can we save on shipping if buying one of each style?
(nvm, already answered)
Are these different from the previously offered aluminum plates? I have heard of people having problems with the previous plates and their finishing. I wouldn't mind seeing some shots of the fully assembled keyboard with these plates too.

Thanks for the additional info.
Sold!
Is buying this alone cheaper than adding it as option during the last ErgoDox buy? I don't remember what the price was.<br /><br />EDIT: I found a thread that said the add-on option was only $25.00. <br /><br />http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?p=1040137762<br /><br />I'll wait until the next ErgoDox buy and add this item as an option instead.
I'd also pick this up with a full hand option.
I'm in on the full hand sized top sheets too!

+1 for full hand sheets
Why aren't we offering the gold plated cover (from the last buy) by itself?
Grrr, Massdrop has falied me
Ditto on the question regarding full-hand: I'd like me some of that!
Support says they do an ergodox drop every 6 weeks, I asked after I missed out on the last one. I'll probably buy a pair of these to prepare myself :)
I just want to know what cap nuts are used in this picture! I have two ErgoDoxes and neither came with the rounded nuts like the ones in the shot above.

I would guess that any cap nuts for the proper size screws will work, I believe they are standard M3

I had to do some shopping around, but I never did find M3 acorn nuts (cap nuts). What I had to do was get M4 bolts with M4 acorn nuts and go from there. I ended up having to use an 11/64th drill bit and enlarge the holes a bit on the acrylic pieces. I warn you that you will need to clamp the pieces to a table to keep the acrylic from snapping on some of the sheets where the plastic is real thin.
Having missed the ergodox drop and not knowing if there will be another, I just can't bring myself to buy this. If only I hadn't missed the ergodox drop. =/

Well, all of the ergodox drops have been successful, I don't see why they wouldn't do another one. It might be a couple months before they do another one though. Have you tried emailing support to see if they could give you any insight to whether they will be doing another drop for the ergodox?
Will the full hand version pop up as well, or just the half for now?
Is there an option to get it finished? I would gladly pay a bit more to have a brushed aluminum top sheet.

This isn't at all what I meant. I'm talking about finishing in the textured sense.<br /><br />http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brushed_metal

I was replying to your question "Is there an option to get it finished?", which implies that it is unfinished to begin with (which is false, because it has a finish: anodization). You would have better conveyed your meaning by writing "Is there an option to select the finish?".
