laptop keyboard

At work I use a laptop stand (pic related). This means I have to use an external keyboard. I would like to be able to fit it in my Targus CityGear laptopbag. But I hate typing on a scissor switch keyboard all day.
My main tasks are writing scripts (terraform/ansible). Not actual coding such as C# etc.

Since I will be using it at work I don't want to be the autist with the CLACKCLACKCLACK keyboard.

Why doesn't Varmillo make aluminum cases for their larger keyboards?

I fell for the tenkeyless meme, but I really miss my numpad when I need to type more than 4 numbers in a row, so I thought I'd buy a full keyboard from them since they're the ones who offer the best customization.

What's the alternative?

>> No.64863768

Filco is your best option. It terms of customization nothing beats filco.

>> No.64863873

I listened to /g/ and bought a Filco, my first mechanical keyboard.

Why aren't there just plain simple mechanical keyboard at a normal price. Fnatic can sell full keyboards with cherry switches for 79 euros, it still has USB, macros and led light and a piece of plastic for your wrist to rest.

Can't there just be a plain simple mecanical keyboard for like 60/70 euros ? No light, no usb, no bullshit, just a fucking keyboard. I just want that, and it seems the only way to get one is one of those filco/ducky whatever and they're at retarded prices. Like it's a luxury to not use a fucking retarded keyboard full of useless bullshit. Sure there is a market for simple mechanical keyboards.

The bottom row on the Corsair keyboards is other standard ("non-standard") meaning your wintendo key and menu keys are smaller than ctrl and alt. This gives you a pretty good visual:


Most of us call 1.25u bottom-row keys the "standard" even though it really isn't very standard at all (if you look at the amount of keyboards out there then there's just as many using 1x1.5 1x1 1x1.5).

As for Corsair keyboards in general, they do tend to have shitty keycaps and poor quality. Most models I've looked at also tend to lack any on-board memory. You may like that you get to/have to configure lighting by software but it's not exactly an advantage when you attach it to some other computer and have to install binary blob software to get it to work. I prefer keyboards with on-board memory, no drivers, you just attach it and it works.

>Why don't people use screws moreso than bolts?

Because a bolt with a washer distributes the force to a larger area on 30 year old brittle plastic. A threaded piece of steel holds better than a self tap in that same old plastic. Bolts won't ever strip their holes in plastic. And lastly, the adjustments with a machine screw are finer and hold more reliably with a lock washer for adjusting pressure across the plate.

There's not really a whole lot of guides on the matter, but there's not much to understand either. Matt3o has a guide to handwiring keyboards on deskthority, take a look at that and get an idea of how a keyboard matrix works. The rest is just a matter of choosing your components and making sure that they fit together (e.g. a plate that fits your switches, etc.)
Other than that, I'm guessing there's some information on deskthority and geekwhack, I never looked into that stuff much myself.
>>64889319 Also this, it's generally simple enough business, looking at the builds of some other people should give you an idea as to how it's done.

The laser-cutters I have access to are trotec speedy 4000/3000 models, other than that I own two 3D printers.

FedEx International Mail Service provides an additional level of visibility to your economical international shipping, however this is not a tracking process. As FedEx hands your package off to a local postal authority, there can be a lag time of 2—5 days where your package is not visible. Not every country scans their packages or performs a full set of scans. FedEx is not responsible for packages once they have been handed off to the local postal authority.

holly massive shit!
i build my keyboards for that price range lol

yea the funny thing is I could have gotten it on amazon and next day shipping would cost the same as this slow shipping did on mechanicalkeyboards.com. the amazon price was 10$ higher though. fuck that site I guess

Probably just shit luck. I purchased my keyboard from that site and got mine within the week, despite it going coast to coast.

So my bday is coming up and around my 2 yr anniversary for this community. I guess I should just give my shit opinions on what switches I like the best.

1. Kailh navy box 2. IBM Buckling Springs
1. Topre 2. Zealios 3. Matias Quiet Pro
Linear: (Who the fuck buys these)
1. Black alps linear mod
2. Kalih Box Burnt Orange

I have pretty much tried all cherry (including clear and green), gateron, mod-m, SKCM White, black, Black, green alps. SKCC green alps. Buckling springs,
zealios, outemu, Topre, Fake Topre, BTC, Matias Quiet... No tactile yet, and a bunch of other old vintage ones.

The Fake Topres from NIZ with 55g of actuation force are extremely underrated. I don't know why noone knows about it, but then again they are korean products and they, besides samsung and lg, like to keep to themselves. I bought zealios to do a review on it where I shit on them... but fuck me they are good. Overpriced as fuck, but I bought a fully assembled zealios board off someone for like 80 bucks. The switches itself were 80 bucks so it was a steal. They are extremely tactile, don't know wtf they did with the housings and springs.

I want to try capacative buckling springs and I saw that guy selling a new in production one for 400 usd. So tempted, someone talk me out of it. I love the little ping sound the ibm buckling springs make.

Kailh navy boxes are basically today's modern smoother alps (besides matias). I still want to try the Matias Tactile Pros, but I can't find one under 100 usd.

This cunt is jacking up the price buy it on gmarket. It is a pain to go through the verfication process, but it is 70 dollars cheaper.

Extremely underated. Much better than any cherry mx switch or clone I ever touched... besides zealios.

How do people program LEDs on custom keyboards? Is it a separate program from tkg.io?

PCBs needs to come with that functionality.

>> No.64892747

>would the UK layout be as effective as the ansi layout?
it is completely preference. I just think the big ass enter takes up unnecessary space.
> I do a lot of coding
Switches will matter more than layout. I recommend the navy box switch. Just get a wolfteam zhuque and switch it with the navy boxes if you don't want to solder.

It is going to be around 80 usd, but it will be worth every penny.

>> No.64892809

custom keyboards use QMK firmware you should search for an answer on their GitHub site, with back light you only can control the brightness and breathing effect nothing more and some keyboards come with a separated track that corresponds to the CAPSLOCK. I guess if you want to go full meme rgb per key control the standard arduino controller wouldn't be enought

is it possible to build a keyboard using those membranes and some parts?
does someone sell components for that apart from the slider and keycaps?

Probably not. The PCB itself will be hard as hell to find unless you want to cut a new one.

inst it just two contact pads? it looks much simpler than a regular mechanical keyboard.
I wouldn't mind making one if the domes come separately

>> No.64892881

Well it still has a pcb board inside of it which noone sells. If you are looking to mod it I have seen some people buy contact pads that go to 65g and swap it with no problems.

>> No.64892915

Hang on... did u think somehow 2 contact pads would make a keyboard? It isn't black magic nigga, you need wires and shit.

>> No.64892986

to be honest looking at this images i don't know how pressing the spring down closes the contact loop
can someone explain?
