Looks nice!
I didn't get it because I just got the other one and I've already spent too much money on keyboards this year ;)

"Two things in this world can make life meaningful: having the strength to forge your own destiny, to live by your own rules, and not be swayed by the whims and wishes of others; and really sticking it to some stranger on the internet."
Yeah I wanted them so bad but this close to Christmas I have to buy adult things, I do have little kids and all that. But it just so happens that my conversion works perfectly with this type of Microswitch so if you would like to use it with a modern computer it should be no problem. My firmware works with that board right out of the box so you won't even need to mess with the key-map. Just pop out the Intel chip from its cradle and wire the Teensy. I used male to female jumpers and drove the male end directly into the cradle where the old 8048 went. Its a beautiful board I might see if I can get you to take some detailed pics of the case so I can fabricate my own, my board didn't come with a case, or those nice relegendable key caps.

Here are the links to my writeup and the hex and source for this type of MicroSwitch SD Board

https://deskthority.net/workshop-f7/man-vs-microswitch-converting-a-sd16234-t19688.html - my writeup of the conversion.

https://github.com/lessthan0/microswitchkbd?files=1 - here's the link for the source.

If you do end up using it just let me know how it goes I love seeing an old SD board come back to life.
