Custom KBD19X

more_vert
Hi guys!
I went ahead and broke open my KBD19X kit I've been sitting on meaning to build that I bought specifically for GMK Laser when its drop started, and ironically I never got around to building it in time, lol. I kept telling myself, "you have plenty of time!"...days rolled to weeks...months.... and now GMK Laser is sitting on one of the worktables in the shop, unopened, and collecting dust. Hahah. One of these days I'll get around to it! --probably when the drop for the KBD19X PCB shows up, that is.
So I went ahead and designed and made an acrylic-cased deck using the PCB I have from the kit, using lubed ZealPC Zilents with 63.5g springs (85g on spacebar), ZealPC PCB-mount stabs, pink 1.8mm LEDs, and a gradient Cherry profile PBT keycap set I've been sitting on from KBDFans that went great with the theme I wanted to go for. GMK Laser would also work on it too, but that's still going on the main deck. ;) This one I'll use as my work deck for the time being.
Enjoy!

how did you get the file for the plate layout? I am trying to make something just like this and having some trouble getting the plate right.

All designed from scratch working off the PCB.

Do you happen to have the link to where you got those keycaps? I've been searching for it for hours now and can't find them anywhere

I snagged them from Geekkeys.com, but they don't seem to have them anymore. Ironically I'm looking to sell my set. I left them on for maybe a week before moving to a JTK set to go back to ABS, lol.
