So the rest of my parts arrived from the far east! Got my stabilisers and a shit load of LEDs.
I’m gonna skip the boring stuff and go straight into the process. See part 1 for a list of what you’ll need.
So here’s the process.
- Insert stabilisers into PCB.
- Insert switches into backplate.
- Insert switches and backplate into the PCB.
- Solder the switches.
- Insert LEDs, making sure the positive pin goes through the positive socket.
- Solder LEDs.
- Put keycaps on.
Here’s a short timelapse video of my build, with some helpful annotations
Simple as that! It’s a time consuming process but it’s worthwhile!
