Cut lines were followed by using a table saw at a hack space. A fence and sled ensured a straight cut. The sawed edges were rough and a belt sander was used to smooth the faces. The edges were rounded as well but only slightly so the sharp corners would not be uncomfortable or easily damaged. The marked holes were drilled according to their desired sizes. Holes meant to pass wires were drilled to 3/8" (10mm) so the connectors could pass through easily. Keypad mounting holes were drilled to 1/4" (7mm) but the holes drilled in the keypads were merely pilot holes to catch a screw.




Once a pair of pilot holes were drilled into a keypad mounting block the block was secured with long screws while the other keypad mounting block was unfastened. From here the second block was accurately aligned before it was drilled. This procedure ensured the keypads would be mounted squarely.

All keys mounted

A layer of stain mixed with polyurethane was applied. The color was intentionally much different than the keypads to give it contrast. The base was allowed to dry overnight. Once sanded smooth it will have the keypads wired then attached. Accent pieces will also be attached at the corners to prevent damage and add to the look.

2015-11-27 (F) Weekly Summary

The new keyboard project kept moving along nicely. Since many of the hiccups(hiccoughs) encountered with the Wrist Mounted Chording Keyboard were already solved the desktop version has been going well. The layer of polyurethane was dried so the finger switches could be assembled. Decorative brass washers were placed around each key. The washers were important for reducing friction but the brass was to match the aesthetic of the wooden keyboard.

 Keyboard being assembled with brass washers

To help the looks of the keyboard brass corner guards were also used. These were not necessary but the look comes together better in my opinion.

 Decorative brass corners

Wiring for the keys was salvaged Ethernet wire with 0.25" quick disconnect terminals. Each key had a specific wire and the ground signal was carried on a single wire which branched out to each switch. the color code was the same that was used in the Wrist Mounted Chording Keyboard.

Keyboard components wired up

A wooden base was cut which would be large enough to fit each of the key components with an inch on each side. Ordinary wood, probably poplar, was used. This wood was inexpensive but finding a length with no imperfections was easy.

Keys on base with one inch border

While working on the wooden version I decided it would also be convenient for some people to have a 3D printable version which operated like the wooden version but could be produced quickly and with no more tools than a 3D printer and a screwdriver. A model was made which would hold the bolts and brass rods, similar to the wooden version. A parametric model was made which has a parameter to change the angle at which the keys sit. The goal was to make a keyboard which would rest comfortably under the hand and not require the hand to be splayed the same way as a traditional keyboard.

 Flexibility of parametric keyboard model

Parts were arranged to print a model with a moderately steep angle. Steeper angles require more plastic. The picture below has three keys so it would be useful as the thumb keys. Four keys would be useful as the finger switches.

Thumb key model

A print was made for the thumb switches and the finger switches so seven keys and four base pieces were printed. Two base pieces were needed for each of the switch sets. The holes were modeled to accept 1/8" (3.5mm) brass rods and #6 (3.5mm) bolts.

 One switch, one base piece, one key, and a bolt

Assembly went smoothly. Bolts and nuts were placed through the holes to the outside and brass rods held the switches in place. The structure was solid but considerably lighter than the wooden version.


Nuts, bolt, switches, bases and levers 

"Under the hood" 

Both finger keys and thumb keys were assembled to make a full keyboard. It turns out that the angle didn't make a difference regarding how much the hand was splayed while typing. Unfortunately this does nothing for the ergonomics of the keyboard but it does mean that the keyboard can be printed with minimal plastic.

Planning for a wooden base was done. Parts were purchased. A 1x12 (19mm x 286mm) piece of lumber was purchased. At the lumber yard the stock was investigated to find a piece of lumber capable of fitting everything and pretty enough to match the project. Finding suitable wood didn't take long and cost approximately $4 USD. Hardware was also purchased which will match the wooden look. Stain was purchased which should contrast nicely with the keys.

Finger pad and thumb pad pieces were placed on the board to determine their usable position. Measurements were taken so the raw end of the wood, which was marred and had a sticker, could be removed. A border around the pieces was left at a minimum of 1" (25mm). All measurements and sketch lines were made on the bottom of the wood so the top would not show any markings.

Eight holes were marked on the board where mounting screws will be drilled and inserted to hold the finger pad and thumb pad. Two more holes were marked which will allow the wires to pass to the bottom of the board without being obtrusive.

2015-11-25 (W) Desktop Chording Keyboard

Model pieces were revised to use a larger hub but this turned out to be unncessary. Key wobbling was due to a loose bolt, not the key lever hubs. This revision will not be reversed since the larger hubs should be more durable. Pieces for a complete keyboard were printed although the finger pad featured the original small hubs while the thumb pad uses the new large hub. Both pads felt and worked identically.

Assembled finger pad, side 2

The keypads were sturdy enough but didn't feel as rugged as the wooden version. It would be possible to add bolt holes on the base pieces, far from the hub, so that the two sides could be linked together but this would not allow for any change in the distance between the two pads. Given the amount of usable keyspace this could be acceptable.

2015-11-24 (Tu) Desktop Chording Keyboard

First printing for the keyboard was made. While measurements for the switch holes were copied exactly from an online source haste in programming put the holes in the wrong position. As seen in the picture blow the printed piece's holes do not line up with the switch's holes. Only a single side was printed which was done to find problems like this. The height of the switch was also questionable so changes to the program were made quickly and a second print was started.

Misaligned holes

Changes to the model took only a few minutes. Footprint for the switch was correct so those measurements were not changed but the distance between the switch and the key lever was not optimal. When the switch was raised up the plastic below it was also raised which saved on the amount of plastic needed to print. No changes were made to the key levers.

 
OpenSCAD view of the model with three key levers

Printer view of the pieces

A full print was made with three key levers in approximately two hours. Three key levers was enough for the thumb switches but the key lever from the test run was usable. Three #6 bolts, four inches long, and nuts were used to assemble the printed pieces. A 1/8" brass rod was used through the upper hole to hold the switches by tension. Inserting a bolt through the bottom switch hole was tedious but only had to be done once. Switch alignment was not finicky due to the wide key levers. Key alignment was a slight issue which should be corrected by increasing the diameter of the key lever hub.

2015-11-23 (M) Desktop Chording Keyboard

Wooden keys had a great feel and appearance but the effort to recreate the unit was high. In order to provide inexpensive solutions to people who may have disorders associated with typing a 3D model was created which uses simple hardware to make a desktop keyboard. In addition to being similar in design to the wooden version this model can angle the base for even more relaxed typing. The angle base brings the keys up to the user and allows him or her to cup the keys with bent fingers rather than a splayed hand which was necessary for the wooden version and traditional keyboards.

Variability of base angle

Animated images were made showing the ability to change the base angle. The maximum angle was 37º but someone could increase that if necessary by investigating and changing the code. Below is a rotating view which shows a 15º base which should be a marked improvement over the flat wood version. To connect the pieces long #6-32 bolts and nuts would be necessary. Spacers were built into the pieces so only nuts and bolts are needed. No special tools are needed but a wrench capable of holding a #6 nut would be helpful.

Rotation of 15º base

2015-11-22 (Su) Desktop Chording Keyboard

Wires for the keyboard were made by stripping the sheathing from one end of a short piece of Cat5e and crimping an RJ45 end to the other. Wire color coding was matched to the wrist mounted version to ensure compatibility. Since microswitches with flat spade terminals were used each of the key wires was given a receptacle capable of attaching to the switch. Ground wires were configured differently since a ground was required on each switch. Splitting flat spade terminals were used on the first switch of each keypad and each subsequent switch had two wires crimped in the receptacle except the last one.

Close up of wire ends

Wire colors were matched to the switches and the keypads were attached to a programmed Arduino Micro to test all the switches. No problems were seen aside from a debounce issue which was fixed in the code. Switches in this model seem to require a longer debounce time compared to the mini tactile switches used previously.

2015-11-21 (Sa) Desktop Chording Keyboard

When the polyurethane was dried all the pieces were were sanded on their exposed sides using wet/dry abrasive sheets. Fine, 800grit, sheets were used and the residue was wiped away. Nylon and brass washers were purchased to space the keys. Only the nylon washers were necessary but brass washers capable of encompassing the nylon washers were purchased to add some style between the keys and aid in keeping the switches aligned.



Key pads were assembled by relying on the tension of the brass rods in the end pieces. Tension will not be sufficient once the keyboard wiring is completed. A base will have to be constructed which keep the end pieces in place. It may be ergonomical to elevate the pads to meet the hand more comfortably. A 3D model could be a new project which could have a parametric entry for the elevation.

2015-11-20 (F) Weekly Summary

Final touches were put on the model. This time grooves were extracted from the middle of the handle area so that the pick could be grabbed more easily. My symbol was carefully placed in the pick holder area but since I’ve included the OpenSCAD code anyone can render their own version of the model without my symbol or even include their own. Or a letter to designate the pick holder which goes in that slot.

Rotating view of the lock pick holder

To designate my picks I wrote names on all of them. The names were arbitrarily picked from a book of baby names. An old school Random Name Generator. The purpose was to differentiate the picks in a way that made them seem personalized. It’s difficult to tell from the photos, and I accidentally left it out of the blog but I weathered the white tape with coffee to make them less than pure white.

Named and weathered costume lock picks

The second part of standard lock picks is at least one wrench. Lock pick wrenches are the little bars used to actually move the lock cylinder. YouTube describes all the parts if you’re interested in the functionality of lock picks, but I will reiterate, don’t do anything illegal! For this costume it wasn’t necessary to carry the wrenches but it seemed silly to leave them at home to get lost in my sea of STUFF. A holder was made for the wrenches which was just like the pick holders but it didn’t have the pick guard at the top. Instead of all the customized fitting that I did for the picks this holder was simply a flat place to glue some magnets. I added my symbols right onto the tray of this model even though it won’t be easy to see while wrench are attached.

1.0mm elastic craft string was used to go between all the holders. An extra set of hands would have been nice because it takes two hands to stretch the elastic craft string and at least one more hand to crimp a ferrule onto the string. I managed but it was frustrating to do alone. A single piece of string ran throughout the holes and formed everything into a circular cuff or bracer.

Ferrule right before crimping


Elastic string allowed me to wear it right on my arm or wear it over a sleeve. Having fabric between my skin and the plastic would be necessary in order to wear it all day. I was pretty happy with how it looked and the weathered, named lock picks looked pretty good. It had a patterned look all the way around and was extra interesting when you realize that the components are not armor but lock picks.

Costume lock pick holders being worn

I was happy with the project so I wrote an Instructable for it. It wasn’t well received, possibly because of the legal gray (grey) area it falls in. Despite labeling it as Cosplay it was not popular. It was nice to wrap up another project successfully.


While I was building the keyboard I entertained the idea of making a desktop version. The purpose would be to practice typing so I was familiar with the keys before I had to type on the portable wrist mounted version I just completed. The portable version is ultra-compact but not comfortable. Which was fine because it’s not meant for extended typing but rather it is meant for quick notes or text messages then it can be thrown in a pocket. The desktop version also didn’t need Bluetooth support. My natural inclination was to make keys similar to what people are used to typing on. Instead I designed something more like piano keys. All glamour aside, they are simply levers which push a microswitch.



Concept of piano style keyboard

Levers were cut from premium Aspen. Premium wood was already sanded on all the faces, had no knots and was roughly the size I needed and it looked nice. I paid appropriately for the benefits. With that said, if someone wanted to simply cut the same shape out of less costly wood it would work just as well, only take longer and maybe not look as nice. This keyboard is going to be the antithesis of the ultra-portable version because this version will look nice, feel comfortable, take a lot of room, and be heavy.

Cutting keyboard style keys

Pieces of the four key array and three key array

Brass rods were selected to hold the microswitches. 1/8” rods fit perfectly into the switch holes. The switches were probably meant for that. Steel/nickel rods could have been used. The rods are not going to be visible so color wasn’t a consideration. The rods were cut on a questionably safe band saw.

Not a single safety sticker

Six rods were cut. Three were long and three were short. Each set of identical rods were meant to hold switches for the four palm switches, one for each finger, or the thumb switches which there were three switches. Two rods for the switches and another rod for the hinge of the key levers.

Three short brass rods

Blocks were cut and drilled to hold the keys. These blocks were cut the same size as the key levers but left rectangular. Three blind holes were drilled in on side and a mirror image was drilled in the opposite side of the mating piece. These blind holes were meant to accept the brass rods. Everything was assembled. The switches were pushed into position and the keys were placed on the hinge rod.

Placing keys, rods, and a switch

Four-key arrangement fully assembled

Underside of three-key and four-key assemblies

Once the keys are aligned and the button presses felt crisp the brass and switches were removed and the wood was stained a dark color. When the stain had set and was dry a coat of polyurethane was applied to protect the stain and wood. This ruined the paint brushes and stained my hands.

Stained keyboard pieces being polyurethaned
