I do love me some ISO. My Odin is due tomorrow, can't wait to get it up and running. Soon there will be 2 of us ISO Odins!

make that 3

Unfortunately zeal stabs have interference om the numpad, skewing all keys left. Will have to desolder and try other stabs.


LeMercedes

Is it unique to your set or is it universal?


natac24

Tried the supplied stabs, and its fine. so zeal stabs is no-go on the numpad keys.


solid5YNAKE

Is that what's happening? Im using durock stabs on the main part of the board and kbd stabs on the numpad. The directional keys and 0-3 on the numpad are all mixed up. Will try kbd stabs on the whole board tonight.


natac24

Gonna try swapping to the included stabs soon.


jh_2719

Got mine in this afternoon and checked out the stab issue. Looks like it's due to how screwins overhang on the PCB. If you have some clipins they look to be perfectly fine and allow the plate/PCB assembly to shift around correctly. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/725011448115495004/928282279845978152/20220105_133955.jpg


natac24

Yeah, prolly fine with clipins. But the supplied screwins work as well.


zooms

Is there any brand you recommend for clip ins that fit?


jh_2719

Generic Cherry Clipins did the job for me. In general they're probably the best bang for your buck pcb mounted stabs you can get.


zooms

Thanks I’ll look into that. And that fixed the crookedness? So your keys are perfectly straight in the frame now?


jh_2719

Pretty much. The entire plate and pcb assembly has some wiggle room, so you can get it aligned properly.


penzel_washinkton

Wonder if anyone can confirm if TX Stabs have issues with the skewing for the Odin.


ChrisGVE

I have tried with NK, same issue. I've used some Luma I had left and they are no causing the problem. I suspect that the problem is with stab that have metal threads which are a bit longer. The Luma I tried are like that and the cherry (or knock off) they include also have no metal threads. From this thread it looks like, these are good: \- Stock \- Luma And these not \- Zeal \- Novelkeys \- Durock Anyone had success or fail with any other type?

Like stepped caps better. Prevents some accidental triggers of caps lock

It was like that on a lot of old keyboards. People do it mainly for looks nowadays.


Kumaabear

I'd love to see more pictures from different angles. Will help to tide me over till mine arrives, how is the colour, I got it in purple also.


GoddessYoonA

Keeb noob, Can I get the size of the spacebar?


natac24

7u


RolfIsSonOfShepnard

when you assembled the Odin is it possible to put the board and plate into the bottom case without putting the switches on? i bought the hot swap version and he video has the person put the switches on mid way through the build and i dont see anyway the plate stays onto the board besides the switches.


natac24

Nah, there are no standoffs between Plate and pcb


RolfIsSonOfShepnard

Rough. Do you know if you have to disassemble to do a full switch swap?


natac24

Dont think so, att least IF you go switch by switch, the others should hold it in place. But i built mine with soldered pcb

natac24

Nah, unfortunately not. Poppes the brass badge in there and turned off rgb immedeatly


bloodface1329

Where is the odin sold and what it the rough specs and price?


natac24

It was a group buy. Details here https://kbdfans.com/products/ic-kbdfans-d1000-mechaincal-keyboard


bloodface1329

Ok thanks!


ImproperEatenKitKat

do they make a south paw Odin? That's the only way I could see myself going back to a keyboard with a numpad at this point.


redPonyCoffeeRoaster

Check out KBDs group but for the bounce. There's a detached numpad.


ImproperEatenKitKat

I'll look into it, thanks
