Hell yeah dude, this is great.

Well, I gotta say that board looks the closest to an "end-game" board I've ever seen. Case, artisans, keyset and everything. Nice to see a truly unique board!

Yes, rerstarted after every change in the dip switches.

I recently got a Switchboard myself, one of the NIB models on Ebay that were sold without a cable. I was able to get it to work fine with an ADB cable and Mac mode, so perhaps that is something you could try.

Woohooo, I'm getting excited already! Thank you for the commitment!  :thumb:

Small update, after finding that Helvetica Rounded is the closest thing available to Cherry's own custom font, I've got Everglide setting up a new template for the set using that font with the adjusted size and arrangement, as well as adjustments to other parts of the design based on GMK's designs. I'm looking to have pictures of new samples from them within the next week or so and maybe samples on-hand within a couple weeks. They are very much willing to work with me to get the set the way I think it needs to look, which is a very good thing since I want the set to be good enough that I'll be happy owning a few of them.

This is exciting!  Not just for this project but what you could do down the road to make awesome new PBT sets.

One thing that I think you should check though.   PBT shrinkage.

About three years ago I got my first set of keycaps in a group buy here on GH and picked up the red on beige ePBT set.  Iíve always liked it a lot.  Crisp legends, thick caps, smooth texture. 

I just recently finished building my e8-v1 (purple and gray), and had been eyeing the ePBT set with purple legends.  The last thing I need is another set of keycaps, but of course I bought them. 

Long story semi-short, this new set causes issues with cherry stabilizers.  Slightly shrunken caps is my best guess.  The longer modifier stems are slightly inward from the process and pull cherry stabilizers inward causing them to rub.  So for now this set will have to be for costar boards only. 

So, just a word of caution to watch out for how these fit due to PBT shrinking.
