Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 100K readers.

Based on trashman's GarbageTruck, Skribbles aka Skycode22 shared his TrashTruck, a 58-key keyboard with exploded arrow cluster, encoder, and aluminum case. The original layout was inspired by the Cherry 1800, just in a 40%-ish format.

This is a keyboard that is based entirely on the “GarbageTruck” keyboard. I used the layout provided on the wiki and have the file publicly repoed on GitHub for the pcb and case, etc. Enjoy!!! – Skribbles4420.
