This is perfect, thank you! The orange options are the right shade and the modifiers only is propitious


on an unrelated note I bought the wrong USB mini b connector, can someone confirm that the following will work https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Amphenol-FCI/10033526-N3222MLF?qs=LmzVcvYPptRriY26yhJP4g%3D%3D

TheloniousDrunk:
Nevermind, I've found https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Molex/54819-0519?utm_term=54819-0519&qs=x6EjVpvqMVObi%252bAAyuuEww%3D%3D&utm_campaign=54819-0519&utm_medium=aggregator&utm_source=findchips&utm_content=Molex which should work

I think that answers all my questions for this build, thanks everyone

TheloniousDrunk:
I'm having trouble stripping the male USB mini B from the housing, does anyone have any tips or methods that worked? I saw in the linked assembly video on the ergodox.io guide the person uses a dremel tool but I don't have one. I already tried one with a box opener and when I tried to pry it apart after repeatedly cutting through it with a box cutter, I managed to cut the wires somehow in the prying.

TheloniousDrunk:
I had success with using a heating gun to make the plastic malleable and then using a pick to hook into and take off the housing

Hopefully last question: I accidentally ordered all 3mm acrylic sheets -- will this matter?
