[IC] Turkeeb v1 Custom %60 Keyboard
« on: Fri, 19 October 2018, 07:15:22 »
Hello Geekhack Family,

First of all let me introduce myself. I'm Mert from Turkey and I'm in love with custom keyboards  :-* But sadly, Turkey haven't got any regular keyboard making company or custom ones. So I decided to make my own mechanical keyboard case (CNC prices are really cheap here too) and I can crate my own PCB within the next project with new budget. Then I can be the guy who started this hobby in Turkey.

Please know that this is my first project and I never had a custom keyboard before so I'm open to any suggestions!

Let's see my first project;





This keyboard will be anodized aluminum and brass backplate. Price will be around 200~250 $ for every color. We can also make a custom image, sign etc. to the backplate for every customer.

Thanks!

looks good, one or two questions though :

-whats the front height of the keyboard ? it looks kind of high and I've heard a keyboard is almost unusable if it's too high

-is it top mounted ? bottom mounted ? tray mounted ?

Thanks for the reply!

Yeah I was getting worried about front height and I think its true. It's too high (25mm) and its gonna be a problem just like Time TKL (24mm) project.

And yes its tray mounted.

Whats the most favorite height for all other custom keyboards, 15~16?

Angle? Connection type? Alps support?
Do you think that if you were able to somehow run around in a circle at the speed of light you'd be able to create a sort of tear in the space-time-continuum where you'd be able to **** your own ******* continuously?

5 degree, connection type of choose.

I didn't think about the ALPS support but if alps support means different switch plate, then we can do it.

I don't think I've seen a front height that low, if you can do 15~16 would be great probably. I think most of the customs are around 19mm. From my point of view going over 20mm would be a bit too much.

You call it a tenkeyless but looks like a standard 60% ANSI layout and plate, correct?

Judging from the USB port placement, this won't take universal PCBs?
