🪛 Build your own mechanical keyboard
I bought all the parts on kbdfans.com, but you can find a lot of things on other websites. Be careful on the shipping tho!
|Switches||Gateron red||linear, x70|
|Stabilizers||Cherry Screw-in Stabs 60 set|
|PCB||KBD67 rev2 65% PCB||RGB, VIA support, USB-C|
|Backplate||TADA68 Low Profile Aluminum Case|
Tip: buy a lube station and a switch disassembler for more confort
First thing to do is to disassemble the switches and separate all the pieces for lubing.
Test the PCB
We want to test our PCB if any pin is damaged or not working, I used the VIA software to check it.
Trim the useless feet of the stabilizers for better stability and less noise.
Now we will lube the stabs and place them on the PCB.
We now want to solder the switches to the PCB.
Put the keycaps on it and you got your brand new handmade keyboard.
Sorry for bad quality

Configure keyboard with VIA
VIA is an open source software to help you configure your keyboard: adding layers (like Fn key), macros and so on.
I used it in order to add a function on my right control key, to unlock a new layer on the keyboard, I can now use F1-F10 keys easily.
