Cut cherry stab holes into costar holes on filco plate
« on: Fri, 26 July 2019, 18:56:36 »
Has anyone tried using a dremel to cut cherry stab holes on a filco plate? Anyone have a better idea? I'm really contemplating this...

It is possible, but I think it would be a lot of work to get it right. What I did was I bought an old ducky shine 2 or 3 plate (cant remember rn) since those have cherry stabs and then I swapped in the filco pcb.

It is, but you might as well use a custom plate.

It's not good to have metal shavings spewing all over a keyboard.

I couldn't find any custom plates compatible with my new case but I did buy a DS3 and it worked! Thanks for the help.
