If you're keeping the key count down, why are you including those numpad keys? They hardly seem relevant.
Thanks for the feedback. Will definitely take it into account.

Re: [IC] GMK M_ss_ng K_ys

The only thing I'm really missing in the above diagram is an R4 End key. Other than that, bravo! We have gotten this input multiple times through various channels, now. It is out main intent to keep the number of keys low to keep the prices down. However, we will include this key in the next versio...

Re: [IC] HADapter Round II (Pok3rFox, Diamonds, Splitkit) <= PRICES

And again: the lack of AltGr (which, as you may well know, is not simply a right Alt on ISO boards) is at least for me a strong deterrent. We are all ISO-DE users who are running this kit but we are putting our personal preferences aside for the sake of making MoQ. I will keep the ALT GR topic in t...

Re: [IC] HADapter Round II (Pok3rFox, Diamonds, Splitkit) <= PRICES

In my opinion you are adding some useless keys (as they already exist in standard OG Cherry sets) and forgetting exactly those which made Wodan's sets so remarkable. Hi, we observed that in popular recent GMK sets, the MENU and WIN text is used. This also matches our feedback from people on discord...

Hey guys, before this discussion goes into the wrong direction. Of course, I have contacted Wodan before doing something like this and he has approved it. This is not trying to be a copy of Hadapter so some keys will be different. It is more the attempt to bridge the gap between a modern keycap set ...

The problem I have with MX Silent Switches (Clicking / Ticking)

Hi guys, I had a problem that my newly built 60 with MX Silent Blacks was not completely silent. Only a hand full of keys were actually silent as expected. The remaining keys gave off a ticking noise. Some more than others. This annoyed the heck out of me and fortunately, after two weeks, I was able...

Re: [WTS] Custom-built 60% ISO-DE (Wood Case | BOX Jade (lubed) | Filco Double-Shot ABS)

This board should be really attractive to beginners who do just want a nice looking 60. The layout is pretty much standard so that any keycap set, even Tai Hao for 35 € will fit on it because it has no short right shift, or arrow keys etc. Do not underestimate the programmability you get with this. ...

Hi, I am fairly new to this game so it would be nice if you guys could answer a question. This guy from Cherry is stating that you should not lube anything but those two little notches in your switches because it will decrease the longievity. He says that Cherry style copies of switches often feel s...

I wish people would just stop fucking about with the notches to generate tactility.

And now, as a side effect, they can't keep...

Re: Keyboard repairers - Germany or UK

Which Keyboard is this?
You could try to disassemble the Case and connect the PCB via USB to a Computer. Then short the contacts with a pair of tweezers. If the keypress registers, all you have to do is to replace the switch.
