Will do, though it'll be a while since I've never used a 60% and will have to acclimate. I actually got the type-s, would have preferred black too but oh well. Was gonna just get a regular black board but came upon a used type-s for not much more so I figured why not.

I am going to get clears on my infinity so I can bring it to school and not irritate people to much. I also think I am going to pick up a set of the blank black DSA caps. The vortex 60% aluminum case is a great deal on massdrop right now, just wish I had an extra $60...

Nah, save your money and get a tex case, the vortex case is cast alum where the Tex case is CNC machined out of a solid block of alum.

I'm thinking about getting a custom case made, but I don't know how to start. Are there any good places where I can get help modeling a case without too high of a cost?

it would just be cheaper to buy a really nice high end one then getting your own made. Tex cases are around $120, and they are pretty inexpensive considering some cases can get up to $4-500

Aside from the cost of materials, you have design time, as well as machine time. And if you done goof'd on the design and its not right, you gotta start all over.

I'm a designer myself, and helped another OCN"er develop his own plate to be made, and even machining a one off item like that was super expensive.

I think I'm going to grab a pack of these: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/led-color-changer

Two in red and one in orange for my TKL. Last minute decision, I know. Anything I should look out for?

Why not just get some erasable markers and run over the LEDs with that? Just an idea, y'know...

I have the 104UB and it's indeed really nice looking, it's basically a stealth keyboard but the legend is still kinda there if you need it. I'm gonna be replacing it with the HHKB though since I'd really prefer the smaller footprint. Or maybe I'll just bring it to work...

Well, they don't have many out on demo, but the great thing is if you ask they'll open up the package for you so you can try it out. Ask even nicer and they'll even plug it in for you, fire up Notepad and let you REALLY see how it feels. Well, at least the guys at the return/service desk anyways ^_^ A couple of the local sales guys at the store I frequent are usually fairly nice about it too.

Yeah, a black HHKB would be rather interesting that's for sure!
