Make Your Own Keyboard in an Emerging Layout

Done in the increasingly popular 1800 layout, the TKC1800 has a full numpad, arrows, and function keys—but, to save desk space, it’s significantly shorter than a typical fullsize board. The TKC1800 is brainchild of user u/M1kehoncho as an affordable point of entry into the world of custom mechanical keyboards. The cases are modified by hand and kits are assembled in Michigan. Featuring a fully programmable layout, the TKC1800 gives you the power to choose what keys do what. The case, made in Germany by Cherry, is constructed from thick ABS. The PCB supports two positions for the USB. It’s compatible with MX and Alps switches and uses QMK firmware for adjustments. Available in lots of colors, the plate is made from brushed aluminum. 

Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of plate and LED indicator light color. Colors may appear slightly differently than they do in the photos. The PCB is green.
