Danish guy has trouble finding ISO layout PCB

Hi, I’m new to this whole custom keyboard thing and as a guy from Denmark, I’m finding it hard to figure out what parts to use, since I need ISO layout. ISO-DE is pretty much the same, except the legends are different on a few keys. So that would work.

I’m hoping you can point me in the direction of either 65% or 75% PCBs and nice cases I could look in to.
And maybe the best place to find Danish ISO layouts (ISO-DE works too). If possible a hotswap version would be neat, 'cause I don’t have soldering gear at the moment.

Thanks in advance!

The ISO layout for UK, DE, DK, SE & so forth is the same layout. So if you buy a ISO keyboard with UK keycaps and type on a computer with a danish layout enabled in the operating system, it will be like typing on any danish keyboard. I hope that makes sense?

One kit that might answer your question is this: https://kbdfans.com/products/tada68-mechanical-keyboard-65-iso-layout?_pos=2&_sid=572c5488a&_ss=r

Then, it’s just a matter of finding keycaps that fit the layout. In most group buys the kit for germans and scandinavians is called NorDe, and contains the necessary keycaps.

I bought one of these recently: https://candykeys.com/product/mf87-pro-black-uk

It’s in a ISO-UK layout, but that only means that the keycaps have that layout, so I replaced these keycaps with something nicer (SA Vilebloom) and that was that. It’s now a Swedish keyboard.

The MF87 is a really nice keyboard btw.

Have it too, nice keyboard, i just change the caps by an old set from à G81 in ISO Be :blush:


Thanks! This might be a great option for me. Do you know if it is possible to harvest the pcb and put it in another case?

Not sure. It’s not like 60% where there is a defacto standard for mounting holes etc.
