It depends on your usage. They are very comfortable; being able to type with both hands at shoulder width is certainly a luxury. Comfort is only increased with grifiti wristrests.

That being said, there are several disadvantages, namely, the inability to comfortably type one-handed. While still possible, it was significantly more difficult for me than on a more standard board.

I'd say that its one of the best for writing, but they do not particularly excel at much else aside from comfort.

yes, you can also harvest the switches. You'll need some desoldering equipment, but you can get a basic desoldering pump for 12 bucks or so.

I think the clueboard PCB supports alps, should also allow for a layout that'd accustom to the AEK II keycaps (non-standard bottom row).
Clueboard also offers cases last I checked.

That's not a kit you're looking at, what's a disassembled AEK II.

Though you can get a DIY keyboard kits all over the place. Aliexpress has some, clueboard.co, and mechanicalkeyboards.com should also have everything you need to build one yourself.

Or just design and build one from scratch. You could even handwire it if you love soldering to that extent.

Quite nice. My friends describes as browns done right, though I don't think that I can really compare them to anything I've used so far. They're fairly light, with resistance building up as you press down, with a very distinct type of tactility that I can't really put my finger on. If I had to compare them to something, I'd say that they feel like lighter clears, but that's still far from a valid comparison.

Browns done right sounds nice. I've never really enjoyed browns - they feel generic, perhaps too lodged in the middle of the spectrum to be interesting.

I've never used topre before, but I can see why they get so much attention. They are smooth and buttery, requiring very little effort to actuate without being as slippery and light as reds.

What's /mkg/s opinion on logitechs K380 and K780?
I hate and love logitech and I know it's not a mechanical keyswitch. However, it is simply a different type of keyboard. Just due to the fact that the individual keys are round. An actual new thing on the market right now (when I walked into the store there were no round keyboard keys, ever).

Hey guys, AEK II guy from last night here

The clueboard FAQ says "The Clueboard PCB supports a large number of layouts. The specific layouts you can use will depend on your plate. For Cherry MX plates you can use any layout. For Matias/Alps plates you can only use the default layout with a few bottom row options. In the image below the white keys are fixed and can not be changed. The default layout is shown in the top center, and keys of the same color may replace each other." with pic related

as long as your standoffs are long enough it should not have any contact with the wood. Glued on acrylic screws with rubber rings (o-rings) make for good invisible spacers.

Handing off this baby

Chiseled it from a block of wood

Yes, I'm here.

I actually didn't do a whole lot in the means of securing the thing. I printed this support structure to prevent flexing, but the whole plate fits quite snugly into the pocket in the wood, so all I had to do was push it in a bit and now you can even turn the board around without having the plate fall out.

Wood isn't conductive, so you don't have to worry about clearance there that much. You should just make sure that the wires going to the controller or connecting the switches don't short out anywhere. As long as that's not the case, you're good with mangling it in however you like.

Though like the other anon said, I would recommend making stand-offs, it's more elegant and will prevent flexing of the plate.

I take it you're going for a layout similar to the one of the TADA68?

I don't know how the chinks would get botnet software on that chip, it's not connected to the intetnet, and you'll be overwriting the memory anyway.

Genuine question, what does the Whitefox do for you that a TADA68 or RS68 doesn't? The gap between the arrow cluster and the right alt and ctrl keys?

>> No.57842374

I know that the Whitfox has more programing options then the rs68, but I don't know much about the tada68

>> No.57842446

The whitefox showed up a long time before the TADA did, not to mention that you can put standard keycaps on it.

>> No.57842509

Whoops, forget what I said.

Now that's retarded, they could've just gone with 1u right side bottom row modifiers if they're already going to have non-standard keys.

are your walls made of cardboard? If they are then it really shouldn't matter since the sound of bottoming out is louder then the actuating mechanism. I've got a model m and even the people in the room next door can't hear me. Then again my walls are cement board with plaster on them

That should only be like 1"x2" at most, why so much space?

so you think its better to have a tumor sticking out of the top, rather then just extending the bezel to the ends of the keyboard

Something like this is my guess. The controller (teensy in this case) extends past the keys, then you have some bezel thickness due to the layered design of the case.
