Love seeing all the gmmk pro builds and how creative everyone is. Don’t currently have a gmmk pro cuz I’m not a fan of the 75% layout but I love looking at keyboards so I’d love to see what other keyboard everyone else has built!
My latest build
Tofu60 w/ case foam pcb foam and carbon fiber plate
Red ink switches lubed
Durock V2 stabs lubed
KBDFANS Red Japanese pbt keycaps
KBD75, Gateron Robin, lubed. MT3 Dasher.
I’ve also built a few other Tofu65s for friends / family that I don’t have pictures of, and then I’ve built a few other KBDFans boards for people. I just find building keyboards relaxing.
I’m currently awaiting a Mode65 that should be shipping in December. Planning to put Turquoise Tealios (63.5g) that I lubed in that build along with either GMK Sparta or GMK Norse, but I do have a set of the Aluvia keycaps coming so maybe I’ll use that.
KBD8X MKII E-White, Brass Plate, Gateron Ink Black V2 with 78G springs and 205g0 lube and films, NovelKey Stabilizers, AKKO Psittacus keycaps.
My GMMK, I replaced the stock foam with 1mm thick neoprene
modded the stabilizers /w band aid mod
Gateron Black switches (L/F)
Glorious Mechanical Keyboard Keycaps
This was my first build and I had a lot of fun doing it. I think it took me around 6 months to research, order parts, mod, and assemble everything. Im currently putting together a list to build my wife one as well, and save a few things for when I build my GMMK PRO.
Looks gorgeous! I moved your post to this topic because I think more people will see it here , and it deserves to be seen
Not the best shot of it but heres the sound test with Kailh blacks. And yes the spacebar rattles (I’m working on it)
while i waited on my gmmk pro to arrive i 3D printed a custom case and hand wired my own keyboard and separate number pad! my gmmk tkl above it.
You 3D printed that case, then did all the internal wiring yourself, AND the numpad detaches?
yep exactly! then compiled the layouts and firmwares for each and flashed to a teensy board. each has its own usb cable. i can take more pictures later today
hey @Millions do we have an “above and beyond” badge yet? I think someone might have just set the bar
i did a full size 104 layout for the wife as well!
Looks like we may need to create one hand wired??? Sheesh!
Holy crap!! I raise the white flag because I can not compete with this! Amazing job!!
yeah it definitely took some time! this one was around 255 soldered joints if i remember correctly! if im counting the control boards too lol it was worth it in the end!
you guys are too nice!
