Any chance you can make the pcb work with holtites? I recently got my hands on one and was disappointed to discover that they are loose and don't work :(

Only 2 days left!

I'm considering making the alps PCB 1.2mm thick instead of 1.6mm.

The 1.6mm Alps is a fair bit stiffer (10-20% I figure) than a 1.6mm MX - mainly because of the holes for the MX switches.

any thoughts?

Is there any advantage to it being thinner?

Would the h87a have led slots for the Orion indicators?

But alps are already paired with fr4 plates for the most part, so I'm not sure if 1.2mm would be too much flex, considering the plate and everything. But I'd be okay with either.

I ordered a 1.2 MX pcb to pair with a polycarb plate. The amount of flex is insignificant, but there will be more flex with a thinner pcb and a less rigid plate.

There will be pads to solder an rgb led strip to and put in the plate of the Orion style indicators.
