[IC] WRISTBREAKER TKL
« on: Wed, 09 October 2019, 23:23:31 »
*** POSTPONED INDEFINITELY ***



Hi all!

After running a couple private group buys on Discord, I'm looking to do my first Interest Check on Geekhack! So hopefully this turns out okay  ;D

This IC is for the WRISTBREAKER TKL board that I have designed and protoyped.

The WRISTBREAKER is a high angle board which takes inspiration from several other kustoms such as the OTD 456GT, TX1800v2, Duck boards, TGR Jane, etc. This was at first just a fun little meme project that I didn't think would go anywhere, but once I got the prototype I was really happy with how it turned out. Although not the heaviest board around, this thing is one hefty beast.

Guess I'll do it for the meme, I'm in! Digging the design and the "buttcheek" weights, The Jane V2 plate compatibility is also nice to see.

I'd be into this if the front weren't as high. I actually like around this angle fox XDA keycaps, as long as the front isn't too high.

Can you tell whether the PCB will have hot swap sockets or not. The brass weights look too tame. I feel a copper weight option is also worth exploring.

Since it is only 20 units you can pretty much rule out hotswap pcb. You can use sip sockets though, it will be pretty much the same thing.

Yup, Smoff is correct! There will be no hotswap options since I'll be using the standard h87a PCB. Also regarding copper, copper does seem like a neat option but it's a material that I haven't had experience with. From what I understand copper is a little more expensive, but I do like the look of brass that has some patina on it. In any case, I won't rule out the option for copper cause I think it'd be fun to try out!

Sometimes hollow boards can sound good, and other times they sound bad. This seems to be the latter. Is the interior parallel with the plate and pcb? If it's not, that could explain the sound.

What plate material are you currently using with that prototype, aluminum? I honestly don't think that sounds bad.  Just an idea but, I'm curious if variances in the how "hollow" the bottom half of the case is from the inside could affect the quality of sound. Since the board has such a high angle, there is a lot more material on the bottom case to work with. If anything comes of it you could even go to try providing more of a cavity behind the alphas similar to the concept of a half-plate. Granted, there are a lot of other factors that play into sound quality such as switches, keycaps, plate, case material, etc.

FYI, I am only hearing sound out of the left channel on the video.
