Hi,

I had a IBM P70 board that I couldn't get to work. I thought it might be cool to make an ALPS SKCP Plate spring macro pad. User kelvinhall05 aka "Volvo" made the pcb for me. I 3d printed a plastic backing part but it isn't the best. Will need to rework it. Regardless was fun.

I used the P70 which has the pcb mount SKCP switches. Not the plate mount kind. These rely on 2 extra leads to be soldered to the pcb that act as support. My soldering skills are a bit messy, but it works. It uses QMK.

I will upload the files soon for PCB, plastic backing and QMK.
