  • Frost edition is a limited colorway that will only run once, future versions will use different colors. Only cosmetic differences

What's Included:

  1. Pre-assembled machine
  2. Switch plates * 2
  3. Keycaps * 32 with a few spares
  4. Spare wheel (This will not be included anymore)
  5. Spare bearing-pusher buffer pieces (will update once I think of a better name)

New Features:

  1. Centered mode now supports up to 64 switches at once.
  2. Off-centered mode now supports 32 switches at once.
  3. PTFE tube replaced with needle bearing - replacement is not needed but the occasional lube job might have benefits.
  4. Dual bearing system to eliminate the need to use paper cards for tolerance compensation of gear box stem wobble caused by enlarged stem hole.
  5. Off center module integrated into machine body - no need to attach a separate part.
  6. Reversed gear box mounting orientation for easy access to bearing assembly.
  7. Higher quality ABS gear box instead of PP.
  8. New motor for lower operating temperature
  9. Square cutouts instead of lube-station style on switch plates
  10. Bearing-pusher buffer pieces (This is the white parts that come in contact with the bearings. They are replaceable in case of wear but I haven't had to replace them yet)

In Centered Mode:

  • Holds 64 switches in total - 32 on each plate

In Off-Center Mode:

  • Holds 32 switches in total - 16 on each plate
  • Requires keycaps, switches needs to be broken in on all 4 sides to be effective (by rotating the plate 90 degrees each time)

Use =<75g bottom out switches only when all plate cutouts are filled (32 for off center, 64 for centered). Switches needs to be removed if they are above 75g bottom out.

Compatible Accessories (Can be shipped together):

  • Actuation Counter
  • USB timer (I would not suggest using the speed controller function, raising the voltage might cause the motors on this to overheat, I will not be responsible for any damages done this way. The timer function is perfectly usable though

Can be ordered with: 

  • Plate support fork
  • Do not order this with display stands. Orders containing both machines and display stands will be cancelled and you will be charged a 4% fee by shopify

Other Info:

  • Off center mode – applies more force to the side of the switch by pressing on the side of the keycap (one side at a time, the user rotates the switch plate to break in the other sides).

  • The machine is quite loud, you’d definitely want to place it in another room when running it. I suggest placing a cardboard box over it to slightly block out the sound. Unfortunately I do not have any ways to demonstrate the noise level. But this will be louder than the 3×3
  • Carbon brush motor – more durable than copper

  • Injection molded gear box w/ nylon gears (not made by me obviously)

  • 240+-10%RPM with all switches installed – speed changes based on amount of switches & spring weight. There might be variations in speed, it is suggested that the user measure the speed themselves based on what switches are used.

  • Fully assembled and ready to use out of the box

  • Pre-lubricated with grease

  • Each gear box is taken apart and lubricated by hand, in addition to the included factory lube.

  • Female USB type c connector with printed housing – soldered by myself, secured with hot glue.

  • Wire connection to the motor is soldered then secured with hot glue.

  • Compatible with any 5V 1A USB wall plug/device port/power bank.

  • Wheel and USB housing might come in different colors like black/white/blue/etc. All other components will be the same color as pictured.
  • All non-US international orders will receive extra parts for free
