Wheat Fields split 75% keyboard


#1

I’m proud of this one because it took a lot of extra work!

For one thing, this is the first keyboard to feature my latest stabilizer modification which makes the top-out / upstroke of the stabilized keys quieter. You will not find quieter stabilizers than these, I can guarantee!

The PCB didn’t support 3u spacebar on the left side so I drilled my own holes for the stabilizers and switch for the left 3u spacebar, and also bent my own 3u stab wire.

I will share info if anyone is interested. It was not pretty modifying the PCB but it’s finally working, thank goodness!

I also ported it to QMK if anyone buys it and wants to run QMK. It’s in my fork for now:

Very curious about your stab modification findings and application Professor Walker.


#3

Sorry for the crappy video, I’ll try to make a better one later.
Here’s how I did the stabs:

Those are some dead quiet stabs there Mr. Walker! :open_mouth: :sunglasses:


#6

is this the same board people mean when they say “taobao ve.a clone” ?


#7

It is, but this one has a lot of visual differences vs. the Ve.a, so I’m not sure clone is the right term

At least, nobody would mix them up looking at them


#8

What color options are available with this keeb? I’ve seen it on Taobao but they’re sparse on details.


#9

I might have misunderstood but i don’t think they offer any other color options but this

Just FYI - According to the seller, the PCB in this keyboard is the same as this other one:
https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=556970472669&spm=1101.1101.N.N.c82c128

So if you have either of these, my QMK port will work for you, looks like!
