What did you get in the mail today?

I always forget about hotswap PCBs since I really don’t like them for my builds. Although I have been wanting to get a 60% hotswap PCB & few different plates in different material to use as a test bed too. So that makes sense to me!

Just splurge and and order a ton of mill max sockets. I’ve got enough to fill half a glass for any future boards.

For my purposes that probably would be easier TBH! I really didn’t think about them till you mentioned them, but for a test bed 60% I could go with a PCB that has a dedicated layout. That way I wouldn’t have to worry about the sockets fitting everywhere I want them. The fact that almost all PCBs are swiss cheese nowadays to support numerous layouts is what kept me from using them in the past. I always heard about people using them, but having to solder a handful of switches onto the PCB for everything to work properly. What has your experience been with them?

Extremely positive. I have skeleton hands and still needed to use tweezers to get them placed, and they can bend easy but I have not had any issues with functionality. I followed the advice of putting them on a switch to align them properly which saved me from a lot of headaches.

I put 180g springs in kailh speed silvers and soldered them into a TKL. The speed silvers are interesting in that they actuate right at the top, so it’s not all bad, definitely a unique typing experience; but I definitely do regret tying up an awesome board (orange tkl) with such silly switches. It was before hot swap was as ubiquitous and in hindsight I kind of regret it, so I’d say hot swap is definitely the way to go.

I am really on a cable making kick. This is a neon pink/dark purple double sleeved cable for the SA Laser kit when it finally arrives.

That is good advice, thanks for the tips!


Finally got a tub of 205G0 to try out. The re-tooled blacks in my acrylic Clueboard could use a refreshing & I think they’ll be a good switch to use to get used to using 205G0 . While I was browsing switchmod I also came across the DCS Everyster set & sticker pack for it. I couldn’t help myself, ended up grabbing one of each LOL! Heads up though I got a Sadster in my pic which I picked up a while back, the Everyster set does not include one.

What sheet of POM is used here? Do you have a link?

Ponoko supplies POM sheets to cut your layout into.

It’s just what I use. While I’m not planing to sell stuff, I may write an app that provides a platform for selling custom products which I think MK community badly needs yet existing vendors, including Etcy, can’t or won’t meet. It’s still in a brewing phase but one of the key feature I’ve identified is demand measuring tool.

SA VoC came in and now my Doro67 is complete. The cream colour is a little whiter than I thought it would be but it’s nice and subtle.
