The Board - Don's Turn at Running Solo [43:19]

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.

TheBoard - Mechanical Keyboard Talk by Mechanical Keyboard Enthusiasts

This week, Kevin has a deserved break, and Don take a go at solo running.   Some of the topics this week that Don mumbles his way through are:   - SA Carbon   - GMK Yuri   - Delta Split 75%   - Hadron ver 2 (https://imgur.com/gallery/4snNu)   - madebyallen.com   - foxoutdoor.com     Plus his thoughts on what has happened after 3 years of being in this community.   I hope at least some of this episode might be entertaining for you!   Don't forget to check out our YouTube Channel if you haven't, we're so close to hitting 500 subscribers, and the next Movember keycap giveaway!
