Quality Disclosure: No. 1/60 & 1/65

Keycult Quality Disclosures are made to inform buyers of any potential flaws in the items they are buying. Low-volume manufacturing is error-prone, and while we do our best to avoid issues through sampling and prototyping, it is not always possible to avoid all issues in the production run. Instead of surprising customers with flaws they did not expect, we will do our best to shed light on them through these Quality Disclosures.

 

No. 1/60 and No. 1/65 keyboards. Everyone buying a kit without the explicit label of b-stock should expect the following:

  • There should be no scuffs or scratches on the case top, sides, or bottom.
  • There may be a few small but potentially noticeable spots or scratches on the inside (vertical) faces of the case top — these are hook marks from how the case tops were hung in the anodizing bath.
  • There may be minor machining/tooling marks on internal faces.
  • There may be scratches or scuffs on the internal top face of aluminum mid parts (the same face as the engraving) — these are hook marks from how the case mids were hung in the anodizing bath.
  • There may be pitting on the top face of the mid (same face of the engraving.) This will not be visible when the board is fully assembled.
  • There may be anodization defects, scuffs, or scratches on the inner top face of case bottoms (the face that the case mid slots into).

The issues described above are largely the result of internal faces not having the same aesthetic requirements as external ones.
