2023-07-09 (Su) KeyRyptex Soldered keyswitches

I fixed several cold solder joints that I tested by applying pressure to ensure they were solid. The final shape will curve around, so I felt confident as I attached the free end of the diodes, where they would pull the wood together and force them to an angle. I added tape to the exposed copper buses so I do not have short circuits, but I had to cut away windows when I added yellow wires to the IO expander board. I used blue wires for the diode connections. I added power and communication lines from the PCB to an Arduino Micro that I removed the pins from. I should have enough wired that I can test the existing connections.
