What did you get in the mail today?


#61

Kiiboss switch opener came in. Should be well worth the cost to open 100 switches and will withstand many more after that!


#62

A 100 ft of 28/28 AWG USB cable and 1.5mm brass spacers. Both for an soldering/assembly workshop I’m doing at a library where we’ll build half of a minidox.


#63

Great stuff guys. Been waiting for my keycaps from Europe since late July. Hope those packages make it to my doorstep. No tracking. Sent via post. sigh


#64

Technically got it yesterday and not today, but I’ve been busy dealing with OG Coil issues


Now I just have to wait until I have money to buy more Jades and build another board for this :3


#65

This finally came in after a good 3 weeks at customs. This is my second NOS Novatouch from a user on /mm. I admit I overpaid a little but this being a virgin board made it worth it to me.


#66

Hellllll yeah!

Any plans with it? Or planning on leaving it pure?


#67

I’m probably going to leave it in the box up until my next Norbatouch case comes in. I like looking at it all clean and sealed but that’s not what a keyboard’s for (well for us I guess it is)


#68

Potato pic of my new FC660M PD w/MX Blacks. I wasn’t expecting much given Leo’s recent factory doce-do but this keeb is remarkably solid. I might not even do a switch-swap or aluminum case for it, it feels really nice as-is.


#69

Desk mats (the NovelKeys MiTo Godspeed designs) - there’s something nice about the minimalist design and the offset sun. I have three color versions of the same mat now, but I intend to use them for 3D print photos, so it should work out quite well.


#70

Crap I wasted $10 on a shapeways one. I guess I know where I’m going if it loses its shape.


#71

I got my Singa R2 today. :blush:

And some catweewee 68g springs.


#72

That is one beautifully polished weight!


#73

Another good mail day for me. :hugs:


#74

Wow that’s one amazing haul! I can’t wait to see those builds up and running! Do you already have everything planned out?


#75

What board is that? It’s gorgeous :heart_eyes:


#76

Thanks! Not entirely, I still need to decide on keycaps. But the rest should be set in stone. :slight_smile:

If you mean the first one, it’s a Norbaforce. The second one is a LZ GH V2.


#77

Is that foam for the norbaforce? Where do you get that stuff?


#78

Yes, that’s the foam I used for my Norbaforce. It’s from AliExpress. Super cheap and there’s plenty for several boards.

I had to make a few cut-outs around the capacitors and where the ground cable is. I decided not to peel off the paper as it would just make it a hassle to remove in case I need to take the board apart again. :blush:

Please excuse the potato pic.


#79

Hmm, what could I need exactly 225 G20 blanks for :thinking:

Unrelated, I wish this phone wasn’t so bad at dealing with brighter objects and glare.


#80

:smile:

I wonder when the associated keycap set will ship… Should be relatively soon!
