Does anybody know if the ergodox uses plate mount or pcb mounted switches?
It uses plate mounted switches.
You'll want plate mounted, but it also works with PCB mount (just more annoying to assemble).
what makes the pcb mount switches more annoying to assemble?
They come with an extra two tabs (see the two plastic pieces on either side of the central stem coming out of the bottom of the switch -- pic from mechanicalkeyboards.com). Though, from looking at the pictures of the Infinity ErgoDox's PCB, you wouldn't need to snip off those tabs/could leave them on for added stability.
Will this PCB support PCB-mounted switches? I've used those in a "regular" ergodox build before and they seem pretty nice.
Also: will this drop include stabilizers?
