I guess I'll have to use a plate. Probably going to be metal. I can really punish my keyboards sometimes.

>>57804587
It was me. I'm probably gonna ask some questions as I go along researching for my first keyboard. I can start with a couple.

How feasible is it for a beginner to make a wooden case for a keyboard?

Should I stick to a non-custom pcb for my first kb? Is it better to use a pcb+plate instead of just wiring everything (while still using plate).

>> No.57804794

>>57804753
You can probably do a layered style one with the band saw, but it'd be easier to make a one-piece case with a router.

For the layered style, just decide what layout you want, use http://www.keyboard-layout-editor.com/ to make it, then use http://builder.swillkb.com/ to generate CAD files for it that you can use as a template when cutting.

Yes it's designed for MX switches. The vast majority of aftermarket keycaps do, if it doesn't specifically say "Alps mount" or "Topre mount" it's probably MX.

XDA is very different to OEM. OEM is a medium profile sculptured layout (each row of keys is it a different angle that's supposedly more comfortable), XDA is a low profile flat layout (all rows are at the same angle, and the keycaps themselves don't get as high). I would not recommend mixing OEM and XDA.

Making a wooden case is perfectly feasible. Pic related is my first build and the first time I worked with wood in at least five years. All I used for this was an oscillating tool and a chisel (and a hammer).

I'd almost recommend handwiring since you'll learn how a keyboard matrix works that way, but it's also a pain and quite susceptible to faults that will make shit not work and be a pain to troubleshoot. You can either get some pre-made PCB, or design your own and have it printed. Other than that, I could mill you one, I'll be starting with milling PCBs anyway quite soon and the material is dirt cheap. Though I'd say hand-wiring is still a fun experience.

Unless you have a 3D printer or a laser cutter available, I'd get a laser-cut plate somewhere that offers that kind of service.

I'm not sure what you mean with "pcb programming", but you'll have to set up the the firmware for your controller.

Most people use the TMK firmware or a variant thereof, matt3o wrote a guide on the TMK firmware over at deskthority.

>> No.57805030

>>57804994
For handwiring you'll have to buy a Teensy 2.0 (or larger if you need more pins, total number of pins needed = number of rows of keys + number of columns of keys), program hasu's TMK firmware (https://github.com/tmk/tmk_keyboard) for it and flash the files to the teensy.

My Corsair K70 is beginning to doublestrike keys, and I don't game much anymore. Looking to replace it with something more typing oriented .

Rather not have LEDs and will probably throw blank keycaps on it. Tenkeyless is ideal, media buttons would be nice but not important.

I was thinking about the Deck Hassium Pro since it ticks off my requirements and comes with PBT Doubleshots. I've read however, that they are made by Tai-Hao which is considered lower quality/thin according to the pastebin in the OP.

Would that be alright, or should I consider a cheaper main board like one of these in the $60-80 range:

I've used GNU/Linux previously and I see the appeal in it.
If something breaks for no apparent reason, I don't want to sift through forums to find a solution to my problem. I don't want to spend time fixing mistakes that I or others made that have no obvious solution.

Not to say that BotnetOS doesn't have problems like these, but it doesn't happen nearly as often as it did with GNU/Linux. I can very much see the appeal in tinkering with your OS, but I'd rather spend my time dealing with hardware rather than software, or at least deal with fixing my own software instead of the software of others.

I have a Ducky One with PBT keycaps and I love it. Now it should be noted that dye-sub legends do have a weakness and that is bleaching. It can be avoided by not leaving your keyboard out in direct sunlight. Unfortunately I did that and my S key began to bleach. This is the only key that had that happened to it so I don't mind

I got my Ducky One for cheap and I love it. The steel back plate is very sturdy and there are lots of programing options. I do wish there was some sort of software that helped manage it all. I got carried away the first time I began to mess around with it so I had to reset all the macros and layers. The nice thing about dye-sub keycaps is that they never wear out since the dye becomes a permanent part of it. It also has the advantage in that you can't feel the text giving it a smooth feeling across. The other advantage is that PBT is a much stronger, longer lasting plastic. It doesn't turn yellow over time like those old keyboards, which is good since I have white keycaps. As far as the bleaching issue is concerned, I wish I had known that could happen, but as it turned out it is actually a very common problem on Ducky dye-sub keycaps with usually just one or two keys bleaching. Its most likely a quality control issue since so far only that one keycap has had that issue after 5 months of use. I hope you can see it from the pic, but that S key looks lighter then the rest

>So overall is PBT Dye Sub > ABS Doubleshot
Not really. PBT is good for dyesubs, ABS good for doubleshot keycaps. The "problem" with dyesub is that you can only have fonts darker than the keycaps material. Doubleshot allows you to mix any colors you like.

if you're not remapping/mapping macros daily, it's because you aren't using a keyboard that has efficient design to do so, aren't doing anything other than social interaction/writing/googling with your keyboard, or haven't taught yourself how to.

to be honest I wish my programmable keyboard had software. With 5 layers and 450 different possible macros that can be recorded or programmed it gets overwhelming. I only have like 10 macros programmed, and the only thing stopping me from making more is that it takes a while having to switch between each layer to program. So if I want to switch stuff around I can't do so easily. If there was some sort of software that let me drag around my macros across the layers it would be sweet.

Yeah, it simply defines the layout of a very few subset keys between US and international board layouts and the standard requires an function row, which the post I replied to doesn't have.

i would prefer ANSI on any keyboard except standard 60%.

Anything below 60% isn't even remotely standardized, and anything above 60% wouldn't really benefit from the extra keys to be able to rebind. but on a 60% ideally the backspace, left shift, and right shift are all split, and ISO is the closest to this for me

I picked up a RK61 on amazon for 40 pounds that arrived yesterday, my thoughts:

+ Kailh blues feel just like my Cherrys, everything works
+Very solid, sturdy llittle keyboard, weight is just right
+Everything works
+I like the layout of the arrow keys

- Interface (especially changing between bluetooth and wired) is weird and fiddly, the lack of a manual doesn't help. After a little bit of frustration i got it connected to bluetooth and now everything works fine.
- Keycaps are meh. They feel ok but the font and legends are butt ugly, prolly gonna replace them.
- Not programmable

For $50ish it's a good buy i think.

Any rubber dome aficionados here?

We're a small group of individuals boldly going against the grain in striving for tactile perfection. We prefer the gentle, organic feedback of a rubber dome over the robotic, cold click of soulless mechanical keyboards. The feeling is gentle and intoxicating - like typing on clouds. And best of all? In comparison to mechanical switches, rubber domes are almost inaudible.

Keyboard manufacturers prefer selling mechanical keyboards because they're much more expensive. They line their pockets with the money of clueless consumers who are unaware or simply do not care for an alternative.

I hope there are like-minded individuals here. Perhaps we could have daily rubber dome keyboard threads where we can share photos and anecdotes about our devices. It's important that we stick together, us, users of these particular type of input devices. We just have so much in common as people and we should band together.

A few things which will help direct your purchase:

>Form factor
Fullsize? Tenkeyless? 60% or <60%? These are some things you should take into account now. A decision now will help limit your search and enable you to find the best bang for your buck.

>Switch type
While this can be hard to conceptualize without having used a mechanical switch, it is still worth thinking about. Do you want a light or heavy typing experience? Quiet or loud? Linear (straight up and down motion without feedback) or tactile?

Cherry browns are consistently recommended as a good first switch, as they are in many ways a jack of all trades. I personally do not care for them, but many do.

use a small towel, make your own or pay out of your ass for some wooden "artisan" wrist rest

Sure, your options are:
1. Come here, buy me a beer and become my friend
2. Commission me to build you a custom keyboard, though I'd rather wait with taking commissions until I've done at least one more build

Though I'll be glad to help you with building your own keyboard, free of charge ofc

Hard to say honestly.
Assuming a build with a 3D printed case and 3D printed plate (3D printed ABS is actually sturdy as shit) and a PCB that I'd design and mill, I'd say I'd charge about 100 bucks or so. That includes everything from designing the thing to putting it together to the point at which it's a functional keyboard.
100 bucks for the work, plus the materials, so excluding the switches, about 115 bucks or so. I'm not including the cost for the switches in the calculation since switches tend to vary quite a bit in pricing. The buyer would have to source their own keycaps for obvious reasons.

That'd be for a fully programmable 60% with a run-of-the-mill pok3r style design.
Of course, I'd be quite glad to do something more unconventional, like a PCB and case for some custom layout or any kind of other unconventional design. The price would be something to discuss on basis of what the customer wants, and how complex the design is.

Pic related is a prototype I printed today. Not a commission or anything, but me and another guy are both working on single-hand vertical keyboards.

Other than that, I'm currently thinking about my next build. I have some neat ideas as to what the central points of the design will be, but I'm still quite undecided in terms of layout and switches.
