This solder sucker is the best manual one I have used hands down. I find it makes my life a lot easier (was also on the input club list). Also use a lot of flux if the joint is being stubborn, this is a god-send with working with lead-free solder. Also use a lot on the wick when you're using one (f...

Considering there is no answer from the creator of the tour, do you think I could get in line and try the ergodox for 2 weeks? In EU-RO Hey, that's fine with me, I'll add you to the list.

Such a shame about this GB, I was really looking forward to it but $100+$22 shipping+20% VAT+handling fee = £120 just for a PCB and plate. Not sure if a split space is worth that much for me :( I think I'll just wait for China to make a cheaper version. I joined this (production phase): https://geek...

What a cute little keyboard, wish there was an updated one with mechanical keyswitches.
It's a great place for a pointing device as it removes the reach over needed when you have a trackball/mouse beside your keyboard.

What keyboard do you have? Can you post pictures of what happened? If you have a plate, you're going to find replacing the stabiliser to be pretty tricky. Mechboards sell 6.25 PCB stabilisers , I assume they are genuine Cherry parts. If you don't want this problem to happen again, you might want to ...

The US (ANSI) versions of X240/X250/X260 are alright and don't have key irregularities. Biggest gripe is Insert/End combined in a single button. Otherwise, as a laptop keyboard the T and X series Thinkpads rule. E series are less awesome. I use a X230, though, which has full width keyboard. Short o...

Ah yeah I had a look at the original Massdrop Ergodox and that all makes sense now. Yeah the nice thing about the tenting on the Ergodox EZ is that it's so easy to adjust and adds very little bulk to the keyboard. I've seen a couple of people use Kinesis stands for their Ergodox , but they seem to b...

Ah yeah that's a pretty simple solution! Shame I don't have space on this case design, if I was to drill a hole I would most probably hit PCB.

I guess a solution in my case would be to have some sort of frame to put it in to angle it. Probably not worth it as I barely use the keyboard as it is.

Yeah the original kit was a good price and came with the case. The pre-assembled kit that I linked is unfortunately more at 580CNY = 75EUR.

Just be warned about the counterfeit teensy, you might have to: replace it with a genuine one, use the utility I linked, or reflash the bootloader with a USBISP.
