Can we get rid of that god awful heel?
The plates in the pictures do not look like as if the support any of the split spacebar layouts. During checkout no plate option beside the color is available. So the layout picture is a bit misleading.
Does anybody know which of the plates this drop comes with? I see on KBDFans website that they have a 2U & 2.25U left shift version.

Description says 2.25u, but it would still be good to have confirmation since KBDFans are out of 2.25u plates for silver and titanium gray TINA-A (and, as of now, only 3 x black plates in stock at KBDFans).
If confirmed, this would be a great chance to grab TINA-A:s with 2.25u plates!
Seems a bit misleading to include pictures of keycaps that aren't available as a buyable option on this drop.

I am somewhat new, but I legitimately thought XDA canvas would be a buy option for this. They often price products at the lowest pricepoint, (like the tokyo 60 - $150 price did not include optional keycaps for $40).
Do other sections of MD do this? Do they sell a watch displayed with a specific strap but that strap is no longer being sold?
Sometimes the keysets are an addable option, sometimes not. Doesn't seem to be any sort of consistency, seems a bit confusing for people who are new to the hobby.

The best thing to do is to read the description fully. The most important parts being the Specs/Included at the end and the blue box near the beginning.
I'm mainly here for mech keebs now but I was focused on fountain pens for a while and they did picture a pen using certain inks or on certain stands that didn't have an option to add those during checkout. As you said, there's no consistency but that's given due to the nature of some of these drops. Read the blue box and the included parts in the description and you will always know what you're in for.
You are better off buying from kbdfans because at least you know when it comes time to ship you will actually get your keyboard.

Yes, go for kbdfans, good service and handles problems very well. Will always check if I can get it from them first. Avoid kprepublic (via aliexpress), I have very bad experience with them. If something goes wrong you are f***ed.
xxsacrificedsonsxx
this, i've bought off kbd fans numerous times.
Just got a drop update here. After checking kbdfans I'm guessing this only effects people who wanted the Tina-C since kbdfans currently has that for pre-order on their site.

I got refunded too with the Tina B
jwchen1259
That's weird. I'm pretty sure you could just order the Tina A and B from kbdfans right now. As for me I took the refund and joined the Tokyo60 drop :)
Is this Kailh Box Switches "Drop", part 2?
Beginning to wonder if "Drop" means "Dropped the Ball"... Today I can buy this for the exact same price and be guaranteed delivery.
Honestly this drop is just terrible. I received an update from massdrop 11 days ago, and they let me know that they would notify me if the drop would be delayed more than a month. Still haven't received any word on delay time almost 2 weeks later. I wouldn't be surprised if they wait two more weeks before telling us that it will be delayed more than a month lol. Massdrop will not be receiving any more money from me on non limited-production drops. Buy directly from kbdfans and save yourself a 2.5 month + delays wait time (on a TINA lol). If i don't receive a shipping notification (or at least an update) in the next few days, i'm just going to cancel my order and re-order on kbdfans.
Can anyone from Massdrop speak to the status of this drop? I've checked my email and I haven't received any update regarding a delay in shipping, which it would appear there is. Any information regarding this drop would be greatly appreciated.
logan.brady
anyone from Massdrop? anyone? hello?
logan.brady
Anything at all... Literally any update would be better than silence.
I got mine today and received 5 extra plates. Not sure what's up with that!
Anime_irl
mine hasn't even shipped yet : (

Can we get a drop status update on this since it was estimated to ship today (1/24) and has not?
xxsacrificedsonsxx
Idk why MD hasn't posted this here, but I got this email a few days ago. "Due to an unexpected delay, these orders may ship later than the original estimated ship date. Our apologies for any inconvenience. If we find that the drop is going to be delayed by more than 30 days, we will let you know. If you would prefer to cancel your order, please contact Community Support using the “Contact Support” button on your transactions page and our Community Support Team will be able to help cancel your order up until it is ready for shipment."
Just built mine (ordered from KBDfans directly). You all are in for a treat. My plate was slightly bent, which required me to bend it back into shape, but I have a true HHKB layout with a 6u spacebar and cherry silent reds now. Really a very cool build, and so long as this kit is an option, I will only be building more of this in the future. Got my ideal layout and complete customizability in a very heavy chasis. Great work, KBDFans!!

Yeah, it's the tough part about having a 6u space bar. Not many keycap sets have 6u space bars, so I had to use a space from a different set.
TheNamesTy45
I see, sorry for that. I am very happy that I have 6u space bars for my beige, black and dolch Cherry/GMK sets.
would the tina-b easily be covered with standard keysets?
bwighthunter
yes
Does TINA-C only support 7 U space or will it support 6U and a extra 1U key? Same vein, 2U backspace or 1u backspace and del only?
search
Is there a separate plate for TINA B to support layout 1/3/15? The bottom row on the default plate doesn't look like it supports 5x1u switches to the right of the 6.25u spacebar.

Does the Tina-a support a 6.25u space bar as well? I'm looking at the Mito GMK Laser keycaps, the Cyberdeck set which comes with a 6.25u spacebar and a 7u bar in it.

gotcha thanks, looks like I can get a 6u spacebar in an add on kit for the keycaps
ikariabari
The Cyberdeck Kit comes with 3 space bars, including a 6u.
Does the PCB support the offset spacebar switch position for the 6u spacebar on Tina-A? And does the kit come with the proper length stabilizer wires?
I wish I would have known about this, i love my XD64 but I kind of want this

we love you....
XiK
thank you, I really appreciate that.
RIP, kbdfans increased the price of the Tina on there store just as it dropped on massdrop.
Branny
@Branny, no they didn’t. It’s still $160 for a kit, $120 for the Case.
This drop isn‘t providing huge savings, but it’s still saving people $20, unless they live in Cali/NJ.
Slayerage
Oh I think I was hallucinating. They didn't change the price 😂
Wish this thing had 2 weeks longer on it and I could get this bad boy.
Anyone know if this is compatible with the MiTo GMK Laser Custom Keycap Set?
tranter
It depends on the layout you're going for.
does this drop support a left 2u Shift?
the_best_40
On KBS's website if you go to TINA you can order a 2u shift https://kbdfans.myshopify.com/products/tina-keyboard-60?variant=38954516941
You do not include the keycap?
andynguyen1904
no
Tina-A is my dream board. True HHKB layout with aluminum and Cherry switches.
I wish they offered an assembled version.. if they are offered those i bet it would attract more buyers

@XiK YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!
@Venichee I’ll be whatever you want me to be...
All jokes aside, nope!
Ugh, just told myself "this is the last keyboard purchase this year" and then this happened.
I'm new to this whole thing so forgive the noob question, but would I need to attach the switches to the PCB myself? Is soldering required? Thanks in advance for the help.
agentmayhem
Yes you have to.
agentmayhem
If you order directly from kbdfans they have assembly service for $12. https://kbdfans.cn/collections/assembly-service/products/assembly-tina-keyboard-link
Is that a mini b connector on this keyboard?
bboltn
Yes.
