TecHno-Guy wanted a low-profile 5x12 ortho for traveling with his laptop. He couldn't find a PCB for Kailh Choc switches, so he went with handwiring. Also, he decided to go for a clear base to show off his work.
The result is this custom handwired 5x12 ortholinear keyboard with a 3D printed plate and main case, and an acrylic bottom.
Switches: Kailh Choc Dark Yellow, lubed with Tribosys 3203
Since the keyboard is approximately the same size as a Nintendo Switch, the author is planning to buy a sleeve to give it a bit of protection in a backpack.
