"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

A bit more info about the switches that are on the plates you've been cannibalizing (or at least, some really close-to-identical ones also on ebay):

Apparently possibly made by NEC.
I've got a 5x5 one I'm using to do some testing on custom controllers/firmware while I wait for my massive PCB order to arrive from Sprit.

My QWER8 hooked up to a teensy 2.0  :p


I know, the soldering is not the prettiest. :rolleyes:

I'm planning to build a custom 60% but before that I wanted to try out the soldering and the programming of teensy and learn what mistakes should I avoid in the future.

Potato pic of mine - just waiting on some clear caps to come in. All the current MX flavors, with a double helping of MX Greens.

Linear - Red, Black, Grey
Tactile - Brown, Clear, Grey
Tactile Clicky - Blue, White, Green

I was really tempted by qwer.io's QWER8 (http://www.qwer.io/shop/switch-testers/qwer8-v2-mx-switch-testing-kit/) but it's out of stock and their webstore seems to be between distributors.
Don't suppose anyone here knows anything about when they might be back up and running or any other places you can buy them from?
