OK so I have a mechanical keyboard with brown switches that I love every thing about except the placement of the right shift key. I would be happy to sell or trade.

Any good 60%, 75% or 80% ortholinear #MechanicalKeyboards out there? Looking for a new #keyboard to replace my current one.

@mkb It's just a classic station in acrylic for anyone who wants to mod their switches.

Something like this (but with space for all parts of the switch): m.imgur.com/t0oEn01?r

I'm hoping to be able to offer the new factory lubed switches from NovelKeys, so you won't have to mod them if you don't want to.

The order for the parts to my prototype keyboard case and my switch modding station has just been confirmed.

The waiting game can begin!

I have this idea (not very novel) for a tiny 40% keyboard layout that I would like to try. Also, perhaps the Kailh laptop scissor switches...

The nice lady from the postal service has finally brought me the Plaid kit I had ordered many months ago, and I am QUITE excited about it. Now I just need a few more weeks to find enough time to assemble it...

#mechanicalkeyboard

the wait time for a Pikatea mountable macro pad is disgusting and I still signed up because I am powerless against it

o-ring modded my keyboard (Coolermaster Masterkeys Pro S with MX Brown) a few days ago, but I still feel like it's too loud...
Anyone from the #mechanicalkeyboards community that can help?

(mainly the "clack")

@mkb

quite possibly the final PCB design for the MNT Reform keyboard, both standalone and for the laptop.

it's my birthday today; as a treat here's what we're gonna do

I'll send the first five people who show receipts for at least $200 donated to Rosehip Medic Collective in PDX or Don't Shoot PDX one of these weird handmade mechanical keyboards I build.

Varmilo VA107M mechanical keyboard review 

Turns out there's not much wrong with Cherry MX Blues, if the rest of the board is good.

My Leopold FC750R has bad ping (or some other reverb, not sure? It's the case making the noise), and my Razer Blackwidow 2013 is very rattly, and this is neither of those: the keys feel and look great, and it sounds surprisingly nice for being a keyboard with Cherry MX Blue switches. Nice, deep clacks from the caps, and less nice clicks from the switches, as expected.

Only complaint is that the bubble graphics look like stains at first glance. The whale is cute.

5/5, would buy a Varmilo again. I won't though, next time I'll make my own.
