C64Mini keyboard kits shipped!

First batch of 15 kits shipped!

Postage on most was actually slightly cheaper than last time! But the two heaviest ones were more, the largest one was quite a bit more than anticipated…so it all averaged out ok…

One repeat customer has a couple of freebies, only one assembled this time!

Also my first ever customer finally will have a spare kit and some stuff to practice with 🙂

Next small batch is coming as soon as the 20cm USB cables arrive.

If you want a kit without the short, tidy looking USB cables then shout and I’ll do a small discount 🙂

    1. Have sold a few to Italy!
      Can you send me an email to keybaord at bleugh.Biz
      I can send you a few pictures and a list of parts

      They’re £30 plus £3.50 shipping to Italy!


  1. Are these kits available Pre-Assembled, so all I have to do is put it inside the case?
    Also, wouldn’t it be easier to put these kits up on ebay or etsy? Or is that too much of a nightmare to deal with.


    1. Hi,
      I have been assembling kits, but they take nearly 3 hours each so I’ve been adding a ‘wage’ to the base price which pretty much doubles the cost.

      After that, you’d still need to make your own keycaps by butchering your own keyboard plastics.

      As for the Etsy/ eBay, that’s a plan, but I’d need to have a keycap option to allow that to happen .

      selling on Etsy/tindie is great, but the kits are a little complex as-is.

      Once I can offer resin printed keycaps, the kit will be complete and then I’ll be confident enough to offer them on a more mainstream site.

      As for just putting it inside the case…
      Yes. BUT, you’d need to have a USB cable looping out of your case and into one of the USB sockets.
      You’d either remove the rectangular plastic black piece on the side, or drill a hole in it, or the case.

      If you chose to solder onto the mini’s USB port (t he invisible mod) then you don’t need that looping cable 🙂
