Greetings! I'm going to attempt a mod for which I need to know exactly where the + shaped switch pins are (I wish I knew the name, sorry). Does the schematic for the plate exist?
Here's what I'm doing: I got a set of those typewriter key caps from eBay. They are killer! I really, really love these things. I don't mind the appearance of the tops of the switches showing, or even a bit of the blue from the pin in my switches, but cleaning all that doesn't seem like it would be a breeze, and I would not like seeing it gommed-up. So, my plan is to cut wood veneer to fit in each of the 8 sections of the board. A hole will be cut for each switch pin. The veneer is thin enough that, if sitting on top of the switches, will still allow full stroke length of each key, that is, the key cap won't hit it, at least that's the plan. So, imagine this with a new wood key bed.
