Is there a way to use this as a numpad? I don't actually know how a PCB works, can anyone fill me in?

Yes. You purchase the switch tester with the added PCB, which fits underneath, and solder the switches to the PCB. Add stabilizers, keycaps, plug it in, and voila!

Thanks, I might have to try my hand at soldering. I assume the stabilizers won't come with this set?

Correct. You will have to source those yourself.

Oh one more question, will the PCB have some connector that'll allow me to connect the tester via usb?

Yes. Unless it's changed, it'll be a USB micro connector. In any case, you can just hold off on purchasing a cable until you receive the PCB.

Can you claify which stabilizers to get? I'm tempted to join the other drop for the transparent ones, but i'm not sure if I need PCB or Plate. I assume Plate since the PCB is under the case...

That's what I thought. Thanks for clarifying.

you can also get the Plate-Mounted Costar stabilizers from the other group buy. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/transparent-stabilizer-pack

You could skip the Stabilizers, A 2u key does not really need them. 2u is just barely bigger than Caps. I have the switch tester from a prior drop and did not bother with Stabilizers.
