Mechanical keyboards

I found these things about a year ago and slowly found myself slipping into a black hole of sorts.

It took me a while to decide that I wanted one after I saw a custom keyboard in a photo on Reddit. I ended up buying a DIY kit and trying it out. It was the KBDfans KBD67. Which is now the KBD67 Rev 1.

I got that and a basic keycap set from somewhere, I can’t seem to find out where.

What I know for sure is that this hobby is an exercise in patience. Meaning that you really need to keep up with what is going on, or you will miss out on the group buys, and that is everything in this hobby.

I can’t say it enough, group buys are everything. If you want a cool keyboard and you miss the GB. Good luck finding it in the trade section for a decent price. Key caps – same deal I am afraid. Don’t even get me started on the switches.

If you are new to this, I wish you well, and may you get in on the GBs early and offten.
