Based project, based specs, based PCBs by a based PCB designer, based case design everything promoted by a SUER DUPER BASED designer.

What's not to like about this project, given also that the not cash-grabbing price and the fact that proceedings will go towards a good cause, especially important in the current moment.

Really appreciate that this project is driven by passion and aims to bring a good experience to the user.

Did I already said this is based?  ;D

I happy someone trying to do something differnt with a good target price of $280 in-stock buy. This looks like a plateless mount using a o-ring around each of the 4 pcb tabs for flex as such this is not a true o-ring mount just because the design use a o-ring does not make it a o-ring mount (i.e. a burger mount use small o-rings around the screw but cannot be called o-ring either). Please change the title of your ic for currently calling this a o-ring mount does a disservice to keyboard community and other great designs that are true o-ring mount which suspend the pcb all the way around providing the the flex GLWIC.

Please change your Geekhack name as it does a disservice to the Pantone name which actually is respected and used widely across the keyboard community.
