In the number pad portion of the log, you mention support for Monterey Alps. Will the TKL board also have this support?

How did I miss that! I read everything a few times to make sure! But brilliant! Got me some Monterey blues to clean up for this then!

SMK compatibility is true.  Of course, I still need to find time to work on this.  The encouraging words are nice though.  It helps maintain what momentum I have.

I like seeing activity here.  I'm glad I haven't lost you yet.  I'm still alive, just swamped.  The last two weeks I worked 78 and 63 hours, respectively.  (I only worked 5 hours on labor day, gotta take a break occasionally).  Anyway, the fact that this project seems to be on hiatus does NOT mean it is dead.  It is on the list.

What switches is everyone else putting on the board? Mainly blues? Or are some people putting lubed salmon's in?

This is probably far too early to say, but I'm looking for Orange ALPS or if I'm really lucky, Amber ALPS

It's not too early! It's going to take me a long time to find the perfect donor keyboards!

I have an Apple Extended Keyboard with Orange, and Apple Standard Keyboard with Salmon. Probably Orange, have not decided yet.

I only have dampened cream lying around, but if I knew that I had a 75% coming, I'd have to dive into the deeper alps world and find out what I REALLY like ;)
One sad thing from the alps party buy, it turns out I really don't like Matias. The work i had to go through to get my AEK2 caps off those clicky bastard-switches is something I never want to do again!

I was removing caps off of my clicky switches on my alps64 and ripped the switch and pad off. Had the ghetto wire it to the iso key next to left shift  :-X

Yes, it would be compatible with just the base set of the lightcycle keyset (if you're an US ANSI user)

Well that's good news!  The LightCycle GB ends October 17th.  Estimated production concludes 8 to 10 weeks; so hopefully Blue Nalgene will take orders starting 2017?  That would be perfect.  :D

Non-update

I decided to take a completely work free day.  This will be the first one I've taken in about a month.  My usual load has been 60 hours during the work week, and 10-20 hours on the weekend.  I just want everyone to be aware that I still exist, and that I haven't abandoned this project.  It just is on the backburner until **** calms down.

I doubt it. To support aek iso, every single switch locations will need duplicated pads at 0.25u offset to the right. This is likely not worth it in terms of cost and complexity of the pcb. Blame Apple and their retarded treatment of keyboard layouts.

Thinking completely out of my ass, but maybe you could do just the left column offset to the left, and perforate the PCB on each side to easily break off the one you don't need :)

I don't have an ISO AEK so it doesn't make a difference to me.

I don't understand what you mean, for an ISO AEK, each and every switch on the main alphas cluster is shifted to the right by 0.25u, meaning the traces will have to be quite complicated (an AEK switch and a normal switch position will overlap over 0.75u and the pin locations are likely affected too). Not worth the headache in my opinion

Well, instead of moving all the other switches to right, you could move the first column to the left, couldn't you? Nav keys would then also need to be moved to the left. A lot of switches for sure, but less than the whole alpha section and not staggered (I don't know if that makes a difference). You would then probably need some extra PCB on the left, and if you are fitting it into a tight case you would probably need to remove extra PCB on the right.

But to all ISO guys I would recommend getting left column keys from m0118. I thing those would work. Then it's just a matter of having the right switch position for the enter key.

I think that would work yes, but obviously the entire right hand row of the alphas column would have a bit of an awkward gap of 0.125u on both sides (I think) since the keys themselves are 0.25u short

tried SMK , didn't like them.. not as upset that this hasn't been updated in a while anymore

The quality of click is good with SMKs but I don't like the weighting and the boards are present in aren't exactly inspiring. I would rather use Alps or aristotle stems.
