I vaguely remembered Cherry MX keyswitch mounting dimensions, but I looked it up to be sure. The spotty information reminded me why I memorized it years ago. I drafted a layout with 75 keys and a gap between the hands. I will place an additional piece of aluminum in the channel, and the halves will attach in a zipper pattern. I would not need the break if I had a slab of wood large enough for both sides. I placed 5mm holes along the bottom edge and center where I can connect to the 2020 extruded aluminum. The other sides have 3mm holes so that I can add machine screws and standoffs.
