Looking for a 5-pin hotswap TKL/100% for testing switches

Hi keebs!

I’m looking for a barebones hotswap board that I can use to test different MX-footprint switches in daily use.

Here’s the checklist:

  1. 5-pin hotswap sockets
  2. TKL or full-size
  3. ANSI layout
  4. solid build quality
  5. decent stabilizers or easy to remove shitty ones
  6. Bluetooth and RGB not necessary
  7. I want to be able to just buy it … crazy, I know! :smile:

Any ideas? Please let me know!

One of those drop ready to ship keyboards like the ctrl might fit the bill … can’t confirm that it’s 5 pin

Isn’t Dorp known to have boards with 3 pins?


here ya go: https://flashquark.com/?product_cat=keyboards&s=tkl&post_type=product
two wireless options from flashquark, both decent boards in terms of features and build quality

EDIT: also yes dorp is basically 3 pin exclusive


Thank you all for the suggestions!

I think I’ll go down an entirely different road, though. After discovering that there are pin sockets available that fit the vias on my Filco Majestouch 2 PCB perfectly, I’m going to convert it to hotswap. :open_mouth:
