I finally got bored of trying to find a set of Weirdos, so I built my second Basis polycarb with 62g gazzew bobas, a POM plate and the medley of KAT Milkshake keycaps you see there.
I don’t know why, but having those circular cutouts in the plate for the keycaps to sink through just looks so satisfying!
Let me guess. It gives you the feeling of safety.
I made the extra (top) plate to protect the keycaps. And the switches. Seen many boards damaged for exposing the switches.
The new ewhite NK65. So clean. Surprisingly good weight to it.
Nice. I haven’t seen the movie. Thanks.
I was under influence of the https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/IQ_151.
but the primary influencer was (of course) the 44-key Atreus.
Looks great! I think CP if my fav GMK white. I have to make a real Sofie’s choice for my e-white Cyber Voyager when it arrives: Olivia++ light or dark base.
Too bad you can’t have silenced creamy inks…
how are those? i do have a bunch of creams and gat black inks i could play around with…
If you don’t mind a pretty short travel, they’re really smooth and I think they have a nice sound. Definitely an adjustment coming from a full-travel switch, though.
- Grayscale GK64xs
- Durock Dolphin Silent Linears w/ 62g DL springs
- Fiberglass plate
Pro Tip: you can use o-rings to dampen the harsh bottom out these boards usually have. Super bouncy feel. No need for foam.
Nice! I’ll have to try that. I think I’ve got a bag of o-rings somewhere…
I also recently learned that GK’s will fit in standard 60% cases - just not all the screw holes are accessible through the plate.
Those o rings don’t look like they would do much to me? Maybe dampen the sound a little? Wouldn’t you want them between the case and the pcb
It’s weird. So those case standoffs protrude through these large holes, causing the PCB to come in direct contact with those rocket fin looking things. Since the PCB is basically just resting directly on the case, the o-rings help absorb the downward force while dampening (a bit) the internal ping fiberglass (PCB) against plastic (ABS) could cause.
I would dub them Coffee & Cream switches. The leaves peaking through give the housing that perfect java color.
If Gateron decides to add a tactile to the Ink line, I hope they make it a nice translucent brown - kind of like the color often seen on sunglasses frames or even those translucent rifle magazines. #teambrown
Now, if only I could figure a way to tastefully integrate a patch of shag carpet into the build…
