Pretty pump to have received my numpad today! I obviously haven't soldered the pcb yet, I just wanted to test the 78g Blue Zilents V2 Switches  on it first. I have a couple of (possibly dumb) questions. Firstly, what is the recommended lube to get for the stabilizers? Secondly, I can seem to locate a user manual. The "About" in the Specs is a dead link. I found another reference in the discussions, but that was a dead link as well.

This tester has cherry rgb silent blacks, but I can't find any place to buy them separately. Does anyone have a link?

It's to help people decide which switches they want to buy. It's better to buy 1 of many different switches you're potentially interested in, rather than buy the whole set for your board only to find out it's not something you want

I guess my only question is what hot swappable alternatives there are to designs like this? I don’t think I mind the firmware challenge right now, I might even do it for them because it would be a fun project. Alternatively are there are any groups buys/sites where you can just buy a bundle of switches and then I can design my own PCB from the ground up?

No hotswap on the PCB feels like a missed opportunity for a switch tester.

Is the PCB QMK compatible? If not, would it be trivial to instead use a teensy to turn this into a numpad/macropad of sorts?

My biggest question has always been: will an ProMicro fit inside the case?

The reinforcing plate material is not aluminum but steel and NumLock light problem, but I am satisfied with it.

Your spacebar on that keyboard doesn't look right, is it curved?
