Quick and dirty IC to figure out if this is even worth the effort of doing the math on. I’ve talked a little with Mike from Novelkeys about it and Kailh would do it if the mold was paid for, but it just costs a lot.
PCB mount bottoms would give benefits like
- Less twisting when soldering
- More secure fit to the PCB
- Able to be used plateless or with half-plates
The option in the form for full switches or bottoms only is for the hypothetical funding period only. If this were fully funded then the usual Box switches would just be available with PCB mount bottoms.
Currently the response is overwhelmingly positive, with <5% of 125 responses saying no. I’ll definitely be looking to start talking more with Mike about it to see where we need to go next with this response. Responses in the form and here are still more than welcome though!
