« on: Wed, 09 January 2019, 19:43:52 »
Hello, I'm pretty new to these forums but I was wondering if anyone here builds and sells these keyboards? Ortho Linear that is :P I don't own a soldering iron and such and I was wanting to get one sometime :D maybe something like a planck.

KBD4X from Kbdfans is a hot swappable board so you don't need a soldering iron to put it together- https://kbdfans.cn/collections/diy-kit/products/kbd4x-custom-mechanical-keyboard-hot-swap-diy-kit
You will need to buy switches and keycaps for it though.

You'll find some interesting stuff in here if you want to considering order PCBs and whatnot. If you want to do a bit less but still build your own there's always keeb.io

I'm working on a 5x12 this week.

Sorry I totally forgot to mention I don't have a soldering iron either. I went to a retired person's house and he showed me enough I could solder diodes and socket an Elite-C without hurting myself or the parts. Built two keyboards this week with zero previous experience.

I believe some keeb.io kits have pressfit controllers or built-on controllers.

And yes the BFO is damn sexy.
