    Hi bit-tech

    There is not much to say, at the moment i have not a lot of time because i am moving to my new apartment with my girlfriend so we have to organize a lot of stuff...

    But i can proudly present my first sponor for this project :clap:

    [​IMG]

    Cherry send some goodies to me!!
    I wanted to wait for all of the parts at Candykeys to be in stock, but the Covid-19 was causing bottlenecks in delivery :lol:

    I choose the Cherry MX blue because the acoustics of the switches are perfect for me, because they sound like the original.

    Cherry also sent me a switch tester so it was possible to compare the switches.
    If any of you want to build your own keyboard, I can only recommend you have a look at cherrymx.de and let yourself be surprised what they offer.
    I'm not using RGB because I have not seen already a terminal with an RGB keyboard in Fallout. xD
    But if you want to build your own, they also have switches with RGB, so I think there is something for everyone :grin:

    Don't miss -> cherrymx.de

    Enough advertising for today I wish you a nice weekend!

    Hi bit-tech

    Finally i am back at my project!!
    So it's time for a small update.

    I painted parts of the terminal with the first epoxy layer

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Now I have to wait for it to dry and then repeat 2 or 3 times before I can fit into the 3D parts.
    After fitting, all holes and scratches must be sealed with putty and prepared for painting. :rock:

    There is still a lot of stuff missing what i need to finish the project and one of those things is the keyboard do any of you know where I can get DIY keyboards?

    Stay tuned next update coming soon :dremel:

    It's been a long time since the last word filter victim. Now you understand Bit's love of 'cheesecake'. :lol:
    I'm happy to see you giving it a good sealing. MDF is pretty crappy if you don't.
