I've got a problem with the Zealios switches. It seems the two little plastic legs on the switches are too thick to fit the holes on the PCB and the switch cannot lean entirely on the PCB. What should I do?
Zeals website says you can clip them off if you want
Thank you for the information. Did you do it and are there drawbacks doing so? Is there a way to make the legs thin enough to fit the holes without having to clip them off?
I haven't done it with an ergodox build. But I found that I had to be a little more carefull of the switches poping out of the plate I was using. Wasn't too bad, but I ended up leaving the legs since the pcb I used supported them and I was too lazy to clip all my switches
Sorry not sure about shaving them down
I had the same problem with my gateron switches as well. I took off the support legs completely as they're not needed and it caused clearance issues. The metal plate seemed like it stabilizes the switches pretty well. That was my experience. I couldn't solder without taking off the support legs completely.
Thank you all for the advice. I took away the legs and it worked like a charm! Still one half to build now.
