Factory mass assembly April update!

  • The factory expects to complete all the currently ordered keyboards by the end of May – great news!
  • 20,000 flippers+springs have completed assembly. They are continuing to assemble the rest of them.
  • They expect to complete 200 keyboards by the end of the month. Because of this I was thinking of waiting an extra week or so to get about 500 keyboards in the first shipment. The 200 figure is lower than expected because they noticed a slight error in the bottom inner assembly radius on many of the completed parts and are re-bending these finished parts before closing the inner assemblies. The IBM XT keyboards’ radii were consistently perfect so the new Model F’s need to be as well!
