    Finally got almost everything, only thing remaining is the PCB which has been shipped.

    New caps to complete the set:

    JD666, yes, UPS still hasn't "received" the package according to their site :p

    And how dare you that crap in my thread, you shall face consequences!

    Seriously though, the timing for the PCB isn't the best, I have to wait until the 22nd to get anything done :( Rakhi, college and what not

    These switch tools just came in today.

    They allow the removal of the top housing of a switch.

    Definitely.

    I got through the diodes and some other things. Switches, and the Teensy is left as I had forgotten to get headerpins. besides this, the TRRS connector I had wasn't correct, so the correct ones are coming in and I should have all the remaining things day after, and assembly complete by 23rd.

    Mostly done, a couple of things left here and there

    Covers on:

    Covers off:

    I decided to swap the position of the resistors and the LEDs since, the keys were not going to be programmed Caps/Num/Scroll Lock, and thus having LED in that position didn't make sense. Since there wasn't enough space for the resistors in place of LED (Which would have gone through the switch), I decided to just use some SMD resistors.

    I added small bumpers to the covers so they don't come in direct contact of the keyboard case:

    Side profile, I made these feet to adjust the vertical angle of the ErgoDox to make it even more comfortable. Got various sized discs and different sized hex bolts and then balanced it out according to my comfort level:

    On the todo list (In order of priority):
    - Add the missing bumper to one feet on each side (Priority, should be done in next couple of days as soon as Ebay dealer ships it)
    - Braided USB cable, awaiting order of USB and mini-USB ends (Shipped, yet to receive)
    - Swap out the 2x keys for taller SA profile keycaps, (Shipped, yet to receive)
    - Change the switch top covers to clear switch top covers (Still waiting for them to be shipped)
    - Add a chainmaille armor style sleeving to both the cables (Planning phase)
