Cobbled together a board from parts I had laying around, and added some Retro DSA.  I really like it.

It's ABS. Long time ago Big Blue Saw got some super cheap plastic and offered very low prices on waterjet cutting. I dug out a few of my existing designs and took advantage. Turns out it was textured, which I wasn't expecting. At first I was mad but this looks pretty good. Some of the other pieces have scratches, though, which ruins the effect. (unfortunately, BBS almost always damages the finish on the workpieces, I only use them when I have to)

By the way, ABS is not good for cases. It's not strong enough. I made the other parts with acrylic.

I really like that layout.

I put some nice blanks on my spare board to quicken/naturalize my touch typing. I make errors too often in the y/u/i/o area

Hey, are those some katakana Topre keys on the top board? Looks IBM esque with the arrow side-legends too. Do you mind if I ask where you got them? Katakana sublegends are my favorite. :D

Added KBDfans black dye-sublimated PBT keycaps to Raptor K1 (Cherry G80-18xx).

It's a disappointment:
  • 6u spacebar has the middle stem in the wrong spot, thus doesn't work.
  • 1.75u right Shift is wrong row/profile.
  • I had to use 00 for the ISO key between left Shift and Z.
  • There was no 1u Menu key, I had to use Fn instead.

Which profile is the Shift? Judging from the pic, it may be the right profile but printed upside-down.
Stop wasting space! Chop your spacebar into bits!

nylon outemu switch tops

still vintage cherry clear on the bottom and stem

the tighter fit makes for a snappier upstroke, pleasant surprise, was not expecting any change in feel.

IIRC Phantom refers to the PCB. See https://deskthority.net/wiki/Phantom_instruction_guide

There's no standard Phantom case, if that's what you're asking about -- I believe the phantom PCB is compatible with Filco cases, so that may help narrow things down (don't quote me on that, the phantom GB was before my time)
