I finally got my PLA75 built with T1s, MKUltra foam, and C3 stabs (Thanks, Keyboardbelle, for sending me the replacement bottom!)

What made this build very different from my previous builds is that I made use of MKUltra's foam for KBD75 PCB to dampen the noise. Although T1s are not as clacky as HPs, I really wanted to try building a board with properly cut foam, and PLA75 was an ideal choice since it uses a PCB with pre-existing foam from MKUltra. I did have to trim down the edges of the foam to fit PLA75 case but that was a straight-cut with minimal time requirement. I will record and post a typing video on YT at some point.

Ooooo dat cf tho
I use T1s on my prototype, so I'd love to hear the difference the foam makes. How are those c3 stabs?

Due to my namesake I figured I needed a fully red board ;)

I think we can call this one wrapped up, however, in the wake of the GSKT fiasco, I'm considering doing a small run of extras for those that want a nice gasket mount board. Let me know if you're interested, and I'll run it by Belle.

Thanks all, and enjoy the isolation mount clacks :)

Yes please! Feel like such a fool for not being ready when the time came.
These all turned out so fantastic, great job!

Why not, I really want a second one for a different build :D

I uploaded a quick typing test video. My fingers were frozen so my typing is error-filled, but you'll get an idea. Also, I think I placed the microphone too close to the board this time as you'll hear some background thumping. The thumping is not audible when using the board.

Finally got around to building mine, and sadly I have the same issue with the screw holes as well as a diode that popped off in transit. Fixed the diode easily, but what's the recommended method for widening the screw holes to spec? Can I drill out the hole without it melting or ruining a bit?

Also I'm finding it very difficult to keep the nut aligned while also preventing it from falling out. I'm going to just put a piece of clear tape over the slot.

Dremel or small circular file. Weird that people are experiencing this, I had 5 extras for myself/local friends, and none of them had the screw issue.

For the nuts, I suggest slotting them, screwing into them a bit so they are aligned, and pouring a dab of white/hot glue in there to keep em in place. Do one side, leave it for half hour, flip it and do the other.
