65% already has a 1.75u right shift normally, can't make it much smaller than that. Unless you're thinking like a Clueboard with its normally 2.25u right shift, but that does support either 1u/1.25u or 1.25u/1u split shift on the right side

I've been reading a lot about the bromine flame retardants that were used in keyboard plastics in the 80s and 90s. Many of these are toxic and have now been banned. And because they are not chemically bound to the plastic, they migrate to the surface of the plastic over time.

This has me worried. Does anyone know if there have been studies on this? Is it a valid fear? I fucking love my model Ms, but this stuff is putting a damper on my enthusiasm.

only if you burn your keyboards in a room with no windows and only one door and the fireproofing is gas.

the bromine and hydrocarbon smoke will cause cancer but the gas will asphyxiate you.

so pretty much it wont matter unless I stick with the same keycaps for a long time and never decide to get some other ones.

I guess Ill stick to browns because i am technically a keyboard babby.

I like PBT keycaps since they are softer then ABS, but it really doesn't matter. Not all PBT is created equal however. The PBT on my model M has been around longer then me and it still looks brand new. The PBT that you get from Tai-Hao is hard and rough and feels more like ABS. The v60 uses Tai-hao PBT so don't expect to be blown away.
