Possibly a silly question, but what is the point of having the switch top opening cuts in the plate, if the switches are hotswappable anyway? It does add a slight wobble to the switch top.

for the folks who would like to use their own / custom pcb!

I would imagine that if you are hardcore enough to make a custom pcb for this, you would tune the switches before soldering :) Have you been able to test the hot swap pcb with the case already? Any wobbling issues? I know that in the k-type they decided against having the wider cutouts in order to have a more rigid platform for the switches. Normally the pcb holds the switches well in place, but the kaihl hot swap sockets do allow for a little movement.

It's been confirmed in the comments that you may use PCB mounted switches in your build if stability is a concern.

Ah, true. sadly not all switches come with the pegs, like kailh box switches.

Yeah, I guess PCB mount cost more to make and fewer people build plateless keyboards. It's a wonder that mgsickler doesn't have a line of them. I wonder if his upcoming purple box switch will have that option?

I highly doubt it. New molds are expensive.
