    So some more pictures.

    The springs i got the earlier day:
    CAM00174.jpg


    The one with more coils is the default spring found in the Cherry MX Blue switch (Around 60g). The one with lesser coils is the Originative 80g springs. These give a more distinct click:
    CAM00169.jpg

    Since I opened up the switch, I though, why not take some pictures
    This is the bottom half of the switch housing. You can see the metal clips. Right now they are touching, when the switch stem is placed along with the spring; the stem will break the contact. When it is depressed the contact will be made and keypress registered.

    Spring and stem placed
    CAM00170.jpg CAM00171.jpg

    Here you have the switch with the spring and the stem. The Cherry MX Blue switch stem is a two part stem. The white part is the reason there is the clicky noise. This part bounces around and makes the beautiful clickity-click. In the first picture switch is mounted in the plate and in the second, the switch is removed to show you the size of the switch bottom housing. If you see closely, on the white part there is a protruding leg, this is responsible for breaking contact of the metal contacts.

    Switch top housing. This just snaps on:
    CAM00163.jpg CAM00164.jpg

    Here is a video I made of how the switch works and when the sound is made. Sorry for the wind noise.


    Finally I made a layout sheet for the ErgoDox so that it was easier to see which keys go where without actually putting them on the keyboard. I took a shot with the keycaps I have right now. Others are in transit.

    I made the layout sheet for geekhack, and was just using it. RAID101 will have the final stamp in the end, JD666, you know what I'm talking about. BTW, got some stickers made, pictures when I get them.

    MohitGamer, you wanna ban the Boz, you mad bro?

    Please excuse my awesomeness, which can not be contained in a single forum and has to be dispersed amongst and to other sites as well.

    Cutting is accurate to 0.1 mm for stuff that I have got cut.

    What I got cut is not 3M, however 3M is available, slightly expensiveness (As in 4x normal vinyl).

    And yes, it can be cut. From what I have seen of the local stuff I had, it doesn't leave residue, however you may not quote me on this.
