Got the novelties today and finished up the macropad. This is one of my favorite keyboards ever!


#632

I really like this color way. Slate goes with a lot of colors. I ended up using from accents from ePBT grayscale which also look really good.

What set are those from?


#633

Finally completed my DC60 with lubed MX Zilents, a steel plate, and DSA Modern Hylian :slight_smile:


#634

Yes, Slate is very versatile. The accents are from the ePBT 9009 set. :blush:


#635


Norbatouch case round Pi with aperture finish and CM Masterkeys Pro S RGB innards with ePBT Slate caps and YOK holy pandas.


#636


ALPS64, FR4 AEK plate, SKCM Browns, landing pads installed on plate for all stab locations, stabs lubed with EK mechlube 2, AEK caps, Godspeed Vader Keybuto III (thanks to a Nexus slider & top housing), & 5 degree case with sorbothane at the bottom.

I found that the typing experience with this setup in my ADK64 was too flexy. I didn’t realize it before that, but I believe ALPS switches need a very stiff & sturdy plate/case to feel their best. This build feels a good bit better to me the way it is now. Also I found out having landing pads for ALPS stabilizers helps tremendously with their sound, no more sound of plastic slamming off the plate! Although you do have to use a pretty thin material for the landing pads or they could affect key travel. I used some self adhering 1mm thick cork anti slip pads that I cut to size which are working great so far!

Tell me more about that numpad/macropad :eyes:


#639

It is a Honeycomb macropad from KeyHive.xyz. Rotary encoder knob is a solid alloy guitar knob. PCB is hot swap with lubed Tealios v2’s, and 3D printed case, using 100% infill to add weight.


#640

I like what you did with the delete key. Having a delete key on r2 instead of r1 is my biggest hangup with HHKB layout. Never thought to just have a 1u delete key at the top


#641

That is actually backspace on default and delete on the FN1 layer. Base kit didn’t come with a 1u backspace key unfortunately.


#642

New build complete


#643

Nice board but also really like the pen!


#644

Thanks, I have a bit of a pen problem as well.
This one is just a simple ballpoint, but the company also makes some nice roller balls and fountain pens with Schmidt nibs. Their name is Ystudio, and they’re most easily bought through Kohezi.


#645

Really enjoy the look and functionality of the board lol. I also REALLY like that pen!


#646

This wood keyboard is gorgeous!
Did you made it yourself?


#647

Thanks!
I designed the case but I haven’t had access to a good woodshop in a while so I had it handmade by Justin from Jcraftcustomcreations (you can find all of his work on his subreddit). The wooden spacebar was made by Mountainblocks.


#648

This guy job is impressive!
Seems the last keyboard he made was yours :wink:


#649

The pen holder is absolutely wonderful on that board!
