Finally put up some shots of the completed build of Sigma #1.

Looking forward to getting keycaps and 6u stab wires so I can finish #2

Well I finally finished building Sigma #2.  This time around I used some new 65g Zealio switches and i'm sorry to say that I'm not very impressed by them.  I find that they are very unstable and wiggle too much in the Gateron shells.  The crystal clear look is very nice though.  I'm having a little trouble with the LEDs touching the keycaps, but otherwise it's a very nice board.  The Alu example is still better, tho.  When I post the video, this will be the post that I am writing.

I think this closes out the project.  Thanks for looking!

A family portrait, for lack of a better place to post this.





I ordered 3 PCBs as a backup and luckily I was able to build all 3 without any major issues.  For the final black one I just used parts I had laying around from a few years ago.  It was fun to get my hands on a project for a few hours but I believe this will be my last.  I wanted the perfect keyboard and I came pretty close to building it.  Time to move on to the next phase of my life.
