The Machinist Keyboard
Inspiration & Design
The Machinist is an aluminum framed keyboard, designed to capture the ruggedness of the industrial era. The allure of the keyboard is in the details. A marred, neglected, metal frame is propped up by two gear-assembly risers. The optional machine hex keys against the gritty black faceplate emphasize an era more focused on production than beauty.
Functionality and Reliability
At the heart of every Datamancer keyboard are electronics chosen for their superior quality and adaptability. German engineered Cherry MX blue mechanical switches are used on each keyboard. These keyswitches feature a tactile click reminiscent of a vintage typewriter, and are rated for 50 million keystrokes. Dip switches allow hardware level support for QWERTY, Dvorak, and Colemak keyboard layouts that work on Windows, Linux, and Mac operating systems. Lastly, function (FN) media controls come standard.
Typewriter Key Caps
Datamancer's keycaps replicate the feeling of using an old fashioned typewriter. Each key is wrapped in a metal housing and includes lettering that will never fade.

This item is a Pre-Order! That means it is still in production and we do not yet know delivery costs. Delivery costs will not be shown in shopping cart or orders until the item is ready to ship.

Most sixth scale figures come double-boxed automatically when purchased through Secret Compass! Most other dealers will slap a label right on the cardboard shipper and ship that way with no protection. Secret Compass recognizes the value in your collectible figure and we always double-box the cardboard shipper, which comes fresh out of a master case so it shows no sign of shipping before it ships to you.
Because this item still in production, we do not know the final weight or dimensions, or even how many boxes there will be. Therefore, we cannot give you an accurate quote for shipping. Actual shipping rates will be determined when the item is in stock, and will be reflected on your final invoice.
The following are reasonable estimates for shipping based on the size/weight of various figures:

These estimates are by no means a guarantee of your final shipping cost - your final cost could be less or more. In the event that you aren't happy with the shipping costs, please contact us regarding other options, such as you providing your own shipping labels, a local pickup, or palletizing your order together with other figures and sending you freight on a pallet. We will always do our best to help you save money.
