C64 Mini Keyboard kit – a successful user :-)

By reddit user mfriethm. Looks amazing

I sold the first batch of kits mostly on Reddit

Over the past few weeks they’ve been making their way around the globe and I’ve had a lot of happy reports back

Today, Ive been able to relax finally, the Mould works 🙂

Reddit users fantastic gallery

He’s done an amazing job using a silicone mould!

The workflow – make a mould of your uncut keybaord

Cut the keys out, tidy them up

Place keys in mould

Put glue in keys

Place keyboard on top and use screws to align

    1. Hi David!
      I’ll be setting something up soon, just getting all the components together to make batch 2. Had to put some long hours in work so it’s delayed a bit 🙂
      Mid September they’ll be available as I’ll have everything in my hands to kit them up.
      Keep an eye here / Reddit / Facebook 🙂 thankyou for the interest!!


      1. Do you use a push to lock switch for the Shift Lock key? Would it work even if you did. How is payment made for your kits. I’d pay now if I had my way. Note to self, “Calm down, your getting too excited”.


      2. Yes I did and yes it does 🙂
        I’ll be doing PayPal as it’s easiest , always happy to accommodate other ways also!

        day job is madness at the moment so expect to get more sorted mid sept now! I have most of the components already it’s just the time needed to kit them up and pack! That I’m lacking 🙂


  1. Did you post you stl files for the key caps at all? I assume you are not going to be using the originals (cut). I have, like you a 3D printer or two (FDM & UV LCD). Not used the MARS yet so wondered if your caps would be better in resin.


    1. No I haven’t posted them yet! They’re still not finished 🙂 burned out a bit homeschooling and the day job so I’ll resume the CAD in the next few months.
      I may end up selling STL’s or cad files for those with resin printers 🙂
      My plan is to eventually buy a resin printer and sell a complete kit with keycaps!
