TheBoard - Mechanical Keyboard Talk by Mechanical Keyboard Enthusiasts

This series is all about Mechanical Keyboards, talking from switches, caps, DIY kits, hand-wired, cases, plates and more. If its about Mechanical Keyboards, we'll probably talk about it! As a sub-series is also the Mech Market Report, a weekly look at prices from the second-hand market on the MechMarket subreddit.
