Versatile tenting with mini racks
« on: Fri, 19 October 2018, 22:16:38 »
Hi.

I've been thinking about an easy way of tenting split keyboards and got some ideas. Here is the concept with Lego blocks and a touchpad.

A simple rack that doesn't require much material or skill to construct.

The rack and the touchpad are locked. Gravity is doing its job.

To increase the tenting angle, just move the rack to the right.

This works well for rectangular keyboards but not quite so for those irregular keyboards. An obvious downside is that the tenting mechanism is exposed rather than hidden. Has anybody tried something like this before?

Cheers,
Hanhong

Finally printed tenting racks for my 60% split keyboard. They work very well. Adjusting angle/distance becomes effortless. The keyboard may sink a little but only when pressed really hard. This is definitely an upgrade from a box in the middle.  ;D
