I'm literally just starting so buying everything now, so no clipped leads around, and Im not bothering with LEDs so no diodes in my case. 22 guage should be about 0.6m. I'll just give them a shot unless otherwise suggested. it seems to be the most common size carried on small electronic hobby sites (raspi stuff etc).

I've seen the teensy with the pins attached but the headers seemed like it'd be too thick in this case since the teensy seems to need to be mounted petty flush.

Yeah, if you buy the Teensy with pins you'll need to trim them then remove the black spacer to get the height down.  From reading around 22AWG is what's recommended for breadboard so that will work for this - singe core (not stranded) will be easier :)

Excellent. Yeah I was planning to get the solid core. Thanks!

Well, not at the moment. I thought there wouldn't be much interest any more.. But there is, so I will be ordering more as soon as pcbwing is up and running again after the Chinese New Year. It will be a couple of weeks before I get them. I'll post here to inform you when they are back "in stock".

I imagine everyone here already as a CM Storm switch tester, but if anyone wants an extra case I have one for free, just pay shipping. No switches or caps, just the case. It has a the older logo before they switched from MX Clear to Novatouch Topre; not sure if that makes a difference, but just thought I'd point that out.  :cool:

Got another bunch of PCBs. Anyone still interested send me a PM.

I've also been told there is a new version of the tester itself which has a Topre key like the ones on the novatouch. That case will probably require some more hacking to fit the Six Shooter.

Does anyone use these with my firmware?  I need to know if the new version works.

Is there another? I know grendel made one, but I would just guess most people use yours. It seems very popular with the replacement controllers =)

Are we talking about easy keymapper?  Cuz it works great for mine...

I'm using it... was actually browsing this (and it's thread) looking for some answers. It seems to be working well in general, but I'm unable to use alt codes in macros or access the config menu with it. I assume the former is due to the lack of a numlock key on my main board (TKL).

I tried using \NUMLK, at the beginning and end of the macro but it errors during compile saying unrecognized escape sequence.

Setting a config menu key outputs nothing. Im guessing due to the fact that it's not a full keyboard? I wasnt sure if config would work utilizing number and enter keys on my main board or if they had to be on the AVR board. I was looking to enable "unlink num lock" and "virtual num pad" this way to allow for alt codes, but I could be going about this incorrectly.

Just got mine today!  Looks pretty~

Anyone know how to open the damned CM storm tester?  I broke a screwdriver trying to pry it open and i couldn't fine any screw holes. o3o
I used one of the opening tools that CM included with their replacement top panels(for the QFR). Even then it is super difficult to open it.

Hopefully mine shows up tomorrow. I really want to get my hands on it :P
Those CM openers are awesome, we need a source for those.
In my search for an the CM opener I found these: https://www.ifixit.com/Store/Tools/iFixit-Opening-Tool/IF145-335-1 I am know sure if they are anything like the CM openers as I have not been able to find a picture of them. I am hoping that this is a tool that will work for the purposes of the community.

I have a tool kit with these in it and they're far too soft to open the case. I typically use a knife blade personally. My kit even has some metal tools in it but they bend trying to open the tester.

You weren't kidding. I had to use a putty knife that I used to protect the bottom case of the tester, then a small metal pry bar that is used for removing baseboard trim to pull the top from the bottom to get a small flat head screwdriver far enough in to find the catches. There is no way a plastic pry bar would be able to do this. Now I know why they sell them in packs of 5. That's one beefy case for a switch tester.

Not sure there'll be a lot of interest, but I've made a configuration for this board in QMK. It's available in the main QMK repository now. LED handling is a bit basic but can be customized to do something fancier if you'd like.

Do you have any of these left still? Shipping to UK from mechanical keyboards is prohibitively expensive :(
