[Raleigh/Durham] Bond Brothers Brewery, Cary - Sat May 12th
« on: Tue, 31 January 2017, 12:22:35 »
** Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill - Discord chat link: Here! **

Upcoming Gatherings:

Where: Bond Brothers Beer Company
Address: 202 E Cedar St, Cary, NC 27511
Date: Saturday May 12th 2018
Time: 3pm - 5pm

Local meetup spot. Hopefully its not super crowded but definitely not a place to be bringing a ton of stuff out. Just a meet and greet, maybe a few small keyboard projects. Good beer, i'm sure a food truck but there are other options in the same building. Kid and dog friendly.

I love in Seattle, but I will be over that way around then. Happy to come, but sadly, no boards to bring.

Got the wife slicing up some vinyl for us next weekend. I'll try and do some "topre" and "cherry" ones as well. Any special color requests besides black or white?
(is anyone from gh coming? lol)

I will fly in at like 10 am from Seattle. So I will be present (awake is another question entirely). Sadly, light packing on work trip, so I have no keyboards to bring.

Did you repost this on reddit's mechanicalKeyboards sub and deskthority?

I put together a board to play with soldering tomorrow. Some good/bad examples and different solder types. An expensive iron and a cheap one, good solder sucker and a cheap one, and plenty of room to practice.

This is actually what I am most excited about. Just purchased my first kit, the let's split GB. But since I haven't soldered since high school, it will be great to try again. And maybe get some practice in prior to assembling my board.

I made some signs so no one gets lost looking for us!

Cool! I might set aside a few minutes to do a little demo and give some people some tips on building their first board maybe around 1pm so people can have time to sit and practice.

Cool, hope you can stop by!

Right now there are 38 "yes" responses to the google form.. So probably a bit less than that will hopefully be there.

^ very cool! i'm going to raffle off a few artisans. I've got raffle tickets and I guess we'll do $5 tickets instead of donations to help me pay for the rent. :thumb:

Oh man, I learned a lot. OfTheWild, thank you man for organizing all that. Finally feel confident about soldering my first board. So many options!

Drifting through the boards
The click of switches depressed,
My wallet empties.

Doh! Totally missed this... FeelsBadMan
I generally hate all keycaps. Keycaps are for poofs. Real men touchtype on stems. Non-functional artisans are awesome, I use them for the ESC key ... escape is for cowards anyways, real men go frontal assault.

You're welcome! It was great meeting everyone new and catching up with folks i havent seen since last year. Go build your board and have fun. Honestly the hardest part is just settling on what setup you want to commit to! Let me know if you need a hand or have a question while you're working on it. I'm always available to anyone that wants to come over and work on stuff.

reviving the original Raleigh thread!

I merged over all the details from the OT thread into this one so hopefully people will update their notifications.
We're back in downtown Raleigh this weekend! Come stop by and say hello.  :thumb:

I'll be there!

I don't have any new keyboards (well except for a tactile switch tester that confirms to me that my *jailhouse Gat stem/Cherry Brown housing & spring are the best MX style switches under $1) but maybe I can compare my cheap uDac3 and HD668bs to some more expensive gear.
