Nothing to be ashamed of. Indonesia's like the Germany of the Pacific. While Australia is obviously its England.

Shipping to Indonesia is pretty expensive indeed. I think in the €35-45 range for tracked shipping.

thanks!

we might have a GB this year to build these kind of keyboards... maybe I could set up 3 layouts to choose from (sub-60%, 60%, 65%)...

Great idea! I'd love to help out. Having plate designs done in advance means that people are a lot less likely to have a wrong plate, and then we could also provide firmware for each of the three designs for people who aren't comfortable with editing code themselves.

absolutely, having the teensy already burnt with the right firmware would be great!

of course if you want a custom design I can add it to the mix, but I won't design it for you, sorry guys, that takes too much time.

Actually, for the 60% and smaller than 60% ones people could save money by getting the $3 Pro Micro clones from eBay. I think they have 16 pins (can't remember for sure) so an 8x8 matrix would give us 64 keys with some creative wiring.

the idea would be to make a big order of teensy's, at that point maybe it would be cheaper to use only that

Any 1N4148 diode will do (but I bet others are fine as well)

2amp seems overkill though

1N148 is very common and cheap, any electronic component store should sell this diode :) the only issue is that a bunch of them increase the consumption of the device so if your keyboard is wireless you should putt a good battery (a bluetooth shield pumps some current too)

what do (in very basic terms) do the diodes do ??
I've rebuilt two keyboards .one access is with cherry four pins with the diodes in them
and I'm doing another pos rebuild with cherry two pins but no diodes on the main board .unless "the magic" done on the controller ?
