Help needed.

Since i cut the original SGI plate down to fit the space bar stabilizer holes are now gone. I need a new way to mount to stabilizer wire. Any ideas ?

Not sure why but the other multi wide keys work just fine without a stabilizer, i could install them but i dont see the point they work fine.

yea, these should do
Just form an U with them, and try to attach it to the plate (so that it suits the stabilizers). Either glue it down, or maybe solder it in place.
But these are just ideas, I never did it myself

No winkeys? I approve of this keyboard!

I do wish there were more builds like that.

I actually drew a WKL SGI plate so my friend could build one just like that. I can pass on the file to you if you want to get a proper plate cut with the stabiliser insert holes in the correct positions

Thats would be amazing, i will struggle along with this one for now but i would like a real plate, ideally anodised in purple aluminium, i will also have to investigate the maximum thickness a alps plate can be for better rigidity.

Is your plate winkeyless or with 1x1 winkeys ?
