This is more or less what I wanted to do.
basically an HHKB with split spacebar. Unfortunately I don't have all the key size to make it perfect, but I can settle with that for a prototype.
Looks very cool. I'm interested in designing a PCB for these Kailh ML switches, a 40% layout.
How easy is it to get your hands on the switches and keycaps right now? And does it seem they are willing to make custom keycaps right now? I have a few strange keys in my layout (1.75 shift, 1.75 backspace, 1.25 Tab, and 1.5 Enter).
I sent Kaihua a request for samples
