MrBishop Builds an ErgoDox mod
« on: Sat, 09 April 2016, 15:18:05 »
So i have kind of had my eye on the ErgoDox for awhile. One day a customer of mine approached me about building one. happy happy happy!

you all know the song and dance. i'll try to include resources as i can. but many can be googled just like i did.
ergodox.org
digikey
mechanicalkeyboards.com
github - ergodox offical case (i started here and modified)

here we go!

electronics. pretty basic. nothing really fancy here with the exception that i made the USB mini connector by hand soldering the connector i bought from Digikey (pain in the butt let me tell you)
133905-0
133907-1
133909-2
133911-3

case design is abit different than the standard layered case. 3 pieces instead of 5 with the acrylic mid plate hidden inside the wooden outer frame. optimized for CNC machining.

i'm waiting on the customers final decision but this is the basic design so far.

133913-4
133915-5
133917-6
133919-7
133921-8
133923-9

The best!

Now you can build a prototype to ship out and learn all the pitfalls to avoid when you build your own!
In his book A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, Comey wrote that working for Trump gave him “flashbacks to my earlier career as a prosecutor against the Mob. The silent circle of assent. The boss in complete control. The loyalty oaths. The us-versus-them worldview. The lying about all things, large and small, in service to some code of loyalty that put the organization above morality and above the truth.”

McCabe, who similarly had experience prosecuting Russian organized-crime rings, has observed that Mueller's approach to investigating Trump tracks how one would go about investigating a crime ring. "There are a lot of patterns in what Director Mueller is doing that are very familiar to me," McCabe told The Atlantic: "You can certainly look at what Mueller’s done so far to say he is doing exactly what we would do with the investigation of a cartel or an organized-crime family."

indeed. and i'll get the opportunity to test drive this thing to see if i even like it.

its also allowing me the opportunity to develop a case i can market.

how pretty would a solid wood ergodox frame be ;)
