Re: Matt3o dev tty unused and priced to sell

That is indeed my seiko5 watch, best watch for the bucks you can find, built the same since the 70s, just like the keyboards we love : D

I'm attaching here two images to check for issues with the keys, I can't spot any.

Sorry AdrianMan, just looking to sell the set as a whole.
I would have loved the trade if my build was still going, but for now I just would like to recoup some of the money spent.

After some serious wrestling to perform the screw mod, a total recolor of the case because the whole resin pot did dry on me before the last touches. After a few broken traces on the membranes, probably due to me fiddling during the screw mod. So, after a *lot* of screw ups, it's finally done. Funny...

cherry debate aside, isn't that board foam and foil?
It does sound good, and it might even feel good (can foam and foil do that?), but it surely can't be a reliable switch.

I'd also be up for using the exact number of barrels that ship with an XT.
If anyone knows anybody able to make curved steel plates for cheap give us a shout!

As soon as I get my hands on another XT (gave mine away, doh!), I will start experimenting at home with a flexible top plate with screws.

true again, the space between the barrels of an F doesn't allow for screws.
The only space available is along the line separating the left F rows and on the right the line separating the numpad.
Would that be enough to keep the center part pressed? probably not.

looks like the easiest (yet not very easy) solution would be to have a printed paper to mark the holes for a bolt mod and rely on the bottom plate to do the flexing on the custom top plate.

Yup, this might turn not as neat as I thought : (
