After 5 years working as a keycap maker, this is the first time I try to make a cherry profile spacebar, yes, the spacebar in cherry profile…
a bit of history
What do we talk about when we talk about 8-bit? Well, there’s one thing we’re sure that it was, has been, and will ever be the golden era of the gaming world. Flashback 37 years ago, we wanted you to take a trip down memory lane, to reminisce about the very first time you held your console that’s taking the world by storm during that time and marking the start of the third generation of video game consoles. This period saw the dawn of 8-bit handheld consoles originated from Japan, and their legendary games coming along.
another world unravelled
To human’s eyes, the 8-bit gaming world seems to be only presented with the more improved visual and sound capabilities than the previous generation, but somewhere in 1983, up in...

May from the Gray Studio has designed and prototyped a premium, 60-key CNC milled, acrylic switch lubing station. The lubing station has been optimized a few iterations and prototyped to work very nicely with various switches.
Potter will consider holding a GB on Graystudio.club soon if there is enough interest. The cost will be a bit higher than 3D-printed ones but affordable.

Hello keeb friends,
It's been a while since the Think6.5 GB! Hope you are doing well and staying healthy.
I have started this design last year but was not able to start an IC due to personal reasons. Now things are much better, I now decide to start an interest check for R2 Think6.5 named '2020.' For those of you who are curious about how the R1 design looks like, here is the original IC: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=99634

Updating more details:
1. Mounting: Gasket-mount. Designed a new type of gasket design that I am personally very excited about (more details to come)
I just ordered the KBDFANS ALL-IN-ONE 72-SWITCH TESTER and I was wondering if I'm gonna have to wait a couple months to receive it. If so that's fine I just need the closure really so I can start to forget about it, so when I come I can be surprised. if it's a pretty quick ship then cool I can be excited for the arrival.
After a few months using my Drop Ctrl, the Z key doesn't light up anymore. Is there a way to tell if the led is dead or something? I've tried restarting the board and also reflashing the firmware that I'm using but to no avail the led doesn't turn on.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Definition: An fully customizable keyboard with unique abilities for layering key-functionality, switchable appearance, an ortho-linear layout, and replaceable parts with a high build quality. You can buy from indie brands, people in garages, and large companies, with both pre-built boards or the kits you see on Drop.
I spend over 40 hours weekly hammering on keyboards, and that's why I'm here figuring out how to make it more pleasant. To be honest, I feel the black hole sucking me in, and I'm about to fill a lot of stockings.
The Physical Components:
1. Bottom case
3. Switch plate
We start off with the bottom case, made of metal and acting as the housing for the keyboard. Just a metal bowl with a hole for the cable.
Into this we place the PCB, printed circuit board, which uses electricity to sense the button presses and run the backlight. This is screwed...
Introducing Drop Signature Series Keyboards : Round 1
Most of us got started in the mechanical keyboard hobby in the same way: we saw a beautiful keyboard and just had to have it. Asking “how do I get that?” always resulted in a convoluted epic quest. We’d need to scour mechmarket, group buys, and an obscure collection of vendor sites to gather components, while taking many months and costing a small fortune, all in pursuit of the “perfect build”.
While we admire this pursuit and feel it’s an integral part of the hobby, at Drop, our goal has always been to expand enthusiast communities. This comes from two approaches: creating innovative products that push the envelope on product development, and making those products increasingly accessible to the community. We’re proud of our previous innovations such as GMK’s first custom keycap colorways, the first scale-produced hotswap sockets, and the gorgeous MT3 profile keycaps. And while we will continue to innovate with interesting products like the 1800-layout SHIFT and gasket-mount...
Magicforce 82 Left Shift, Tab, Crtl and Caps Lock not working?
Has anyone else had this issue before as per post title? All other keys work perfectly fine however these keys have just stopped working out of no-where, other keyboards work fine on my computer so I assume its a defective Keyboard?
Just wondering if there is anything else I could try before I look at getting a new Keyboard and this time hopefully one that lasts more than a year...
