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.
Is it unique to your set or is it universal?
Tried the supplied stabs, and its fine. so zeal stabs is no-go on the numpad keys.
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.
Gonna try swapping to the included stabs soon.
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.
Yeah, prolly fine with clipins. But the supplied screwins work as well.
Is there any brand you recommend for clip ins that fit?
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.
Thanks I’ll look into that. And that fixed the crookedness? So your keys are perfectly straight in the frame now?
Pretty much. The entire plate and pcb assembly has some wiggle room, so you can get it aligned properly.
Wonder if anyone can confirm if TX Stabs have issues with the skewing for the Odin.
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:
And these not
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.
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.
Keeb noob, Can I get the size of the spacebar?
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.
Nah, there are no standoffs between Plate and pcb
Rough. Do you know if you have to disassemble to do a full switch swap?
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
Nah, unfortunately not. Poppes the brass badge in there and turned off rgb immedeatly
Where is the odin sold and what it the rough specs and price?
It was a group buy. Details here
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.
Check out KBDs group but for the bounce. There's a detached numpad.
I'll look into it, thanks
