New version of the Lil Chonky Bois

New version of the Lil Chonky Bois by Sndr666. MX version added.

This is the next iteration of the original lil Chonkster, with eased tenting and a little less curvature of the keywell.

  • Less curvature, resulting in less tenting.
  • MX and Alps versions, MX version is still waiting on 1.75U thumbkeys, which were harder to order than anticipated.
  • Punk rock hotswap sockets using rivets.
  • TRRS connector moved to the thumb cluster.

[...] after using the previous incarnation for a couple of months I decided to ease the tenting and I found I needed a little less curvature of the keywell – Sndr666.
