FR4 Full and Half Plates for the KBD8X — Felix Jen
Released on February 12, 2021
Two versions of the FR4 Plate were designed to fit the KBD8X series of cases from KBDFans. Each plate has a layer of thick gold plating in and around the switch holes and is made of high grade FR4, resistant to both shattering and scratches. A full plate version has a stiffer feel while the half-plate version allows for increased flexibility of the alphanumeric characters.
“All that is gold does not glitter.”
— J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
