New Gherkin Plates

Plates with switch top removable cutouts

  • 14mm square cutouts replaced with switch top removable cut outs
  • Notch in top plate removed
  • Notch in bottom plate slightly deeper
  • Back sides are blank
  • Compatible with previous version top/bottom/pcb
  • Previous version
  • Github 
Tested the cutouts with Gateron and Cherry switches. Removed the USB notch in the top plate, it really was not needed. The new switch cutout also came closer to where the notch was, it would have been a weak spot. The notch in the bottom plate is slightly deeper so that some larger USB connectors will fit.

The top plate is not symmetrical. The USB connector would go on the end with the printing.
