I started soldering my split 60% keyboard kit last night. I am still waiting on a few parts before I can finish it, but the soldering will take me a LONG time...
I successfully soldered on about 15 diodes. Hand shaking wasn't too bad. Now I just need another 50 diodes, two controller boards, a handful of other small components and 64 switches!
That should only take me a month or so 😂
I promise that I'm not posting this to brag... I'm posting this to show how awesome this keyboard is because I like this new keyboard A LOT!
I've tried this typing test 3 times today. The first time I got 113 wpm. The second I got 108 because attempted to eat my fingers part way through.
This is my 3rd attempt. I'm pretty damned happy with 118, although I'm really mad at myself for the mistake.
If you care about typing speed and are building a board get Kailh BOX navys.
I code for a living and a hobby. If you believe something is sacred you should be warned that I don't.
